Good afternoon ladies! Hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the wonderful June sun that England has to offer us today (and if you are elsewhere in the world, I hope you're also basking in some lovely weather!). I've spent a large portion of my day cuddled up in bed after seeing Dad off to the airport in the early hours of the morning. I also prepared a post which will hopefully be posted tomorrow.

This week's featured garment is the black playsuit from H&M. I Tweeted asking for requested items, and this seemed like a good choice to go with, especially following yesterday's outfit post. Also, the playsuit is on sale in H&M right now at a bargainous £7.99! Perfect for everyday wear, to dress up in the evening, or as a failsafe item in a holiday wardrobe, it is such a good investment to have a black playsuit in your wardrobe right now. As always, each item is linked below the Look for easy online shopping!

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

I'd like to look at Look One as something a little more sophisticated and chic. It is simple, elegant and streamlined, and if you're not a fan of the daytime mocassins I've paired with the Look, it is so easy to pop on a pair of basic flats, sandals or heels to change up the look! I've been looking at this Topshop kimono for as long as I can remember, the brick colour is gorgeous and super flattering on any skintone for the Summer, and the draped fit will streamline your body. Pick a size to cover your bum though! I also decided to accessorise quite simply on this outfit, with two statement House of Harlow by Nicole Richie pieces. The necklace is an elegant, gold vintage key, which will look amazing against black, as well as subtly coordinate with the gold detail on the playsuit tassles. I've adored the starburst ring since Nicole Richie launched her collection, for those after a cheaper alternative, visit Victoria's online shop (linked above as #4).

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4.

The best way to describe Look Two is 'ballerina chic'. Undeniably, the fashion world has been heavily influenced by the 'Black Swan' film, and this Look alludes to that trend. I included two variations of tops to layer over the playsuit. I know a lot of people are self-conscious of getting their arms out, I can be a lot of the time too! Both of these tops feature different sleeve lengths, and beautiful crochet or lace detailing. The nude/pastel colour palette is so lovely against black too. I've not tried the sheer nude jewel tights from Topshop, but I'm assuming they are a true nude, not that white tone. A nude pair of tights is great for extra warmth, and the jewel detail is super elegant. Finished off with a long, sunburst disc necklace from Forever 21, which comes in rust orange or turquoise.

Get the look! 1, 2, 3, 4.

Look Three is a sweet, laidback British summer look. Pop a tour tee over the playsuit, preferably a size or two larger, or better yet, wear your boyfriend's, for an I-just-threw-this-on-don't-I-look-good look. I am a huge backer of ethnic, tribal colours and mocassins this season, if you hadn't noticed! This H&M pair tick all the boxes for my perfect Summer shoe. I really like the idea of a cute little backpack, slung slouchily over one shoulder, and of course, a boater hat will complete this look. You can get 10% off any order over £15 at Shop Dixi with my code 'DIXIDAISYBUTTER' too! Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this week's installment of Ways to Wear! Let me know if you've worn or featured an outfit from any of my Ways to Wear series, I'd love to have a look at your outfits! I'm thinking of changing up my blog layout either this week or the next, so hold tight if things get a little messy around here soon ;)

    I wonder if it would look weird on short people? I've been meaning to try one, but I'm afraid I'll look even more toddler-ish! :3

  26. I can't decide which look I like more. Number one is definitely classy and loving the color combo. But I really love the mix of the creams and black in the second look. I really should get me a play suit, especially after this post!
