A few weeks ago I went to a Blogger event hosted by Oaks Boutique at their store in Roundhay. I followed my blog post about the event with a blog post showing my favourite items from Oaks that I had spotted on the night. Oaks were holding a competition for all the bloggers who attended the event to be in with the chance to win one of their favourite items. Remember the jumpsuit I mentioned in my blog post? Well, I won it! I was so so excited when Oaks tweeted me to tell me that I was one of the winners and I went to collect my jumpsuit a couple of days later.
I tried on both the small/medium and medium/large and the smaller of the two definitely fitted better - it is quite a loose-fitting jumpsuit anyway so looks better when it is more fitted as opposed to being really loose and drapey. It is a really flattering fit and I think it would look good on any body shape and size as it sinches in at the waist and has a really flattering scooped neckline but is loose enough over the tummy and legs to cover and lumps and bumps you don't want to show. This jumpsuit will be great for hot days when you want to wear something that will keep you cool but don't fancy showing your legs (come on, surely I'm not the only girl who has that in-between-leg-shaving stubble that I don't want the world to see?!).
At the event I only spotted the jumpsuit in pink, however when I went to collect it I was shown the baby blue version which is also really nice. I stuck with my original choice of pink however, as I have a lot of blue clothes already and felt that the pink jumpsuit was full of warmer, more summery shades that would look amazing with a bikini and a tan on the beach. When you look closely the jumpsuit appears to be see-through, so I was a tad nervous when I tried it on however once on its fine. I would probably opt for nude-coloured underwear just to feel totally safe and because the cut of the jumpsuit means that your bra might peep out to say hi..!
The other reason why this jumpsuit is perfect for hot holidays is that it can be worn casually during the day or dressed up for the evening. I would wear it with casual flats or flip flops and a sun hat during the day and dress it up with heels and jewellery for meals out during the evening. Is it just me that likes to dress up extra nice for hot holiday evenings?
If you live near any of the Oaks stores I would definitely recommend popping in and trying this on, in either the pink or the blue! This jumpsuit would suit pretty much anyone and would be a great addition to your summer wardrobe. Thanks again Oaks!
