i've got butterflies




Playsuit: AX Paris

When approached by AX Paris to potentially feature one of their items, I logged onto their site with slight trepidation. I have often seen their range stocked in New Look but have never really been drawn to it, believing it was just a collection of super-slinky body-con dresses which are not my thing. However, I was pleasantly surprised by many of the pieces they had to offer, in particular this sweet playsuit prettified with colourful butterflies. I was pleased that the size I opted for fitted perfectly which is always the tricky issue when ordering online. It is 100% cotton so hangs nicely and is lovely and light for summer days. I love that it has pockets; adding a casual tone to the outfit, and think the draped panels, front and back, makes it extremely flattering.

As for my nails, I am no nail art whizz by any stretch of the imagination, but confronted with a lazy Friday night and fuelled by too many nail varnishes, I thought I would have a play. I don't even have a nail art pen or anything fancy like that, I simply dipped the end of an orange stick into the polish and blobbed! 

I hope you are all well and enjoying the LONG weekend.
