The Outfit

Playsuit – H&M // Bag – Zara // Shoes – Clarks

So by the time this post goes live I would have been home from Florida for exactly 27 days and counting…

My second post in my ‘Florida Series‘ is dedicated to a road trip to none other than St. Petersburg. [See my first ‘Florida Series’ post here]. I first visited this place last October and its probably my favourite place to go. The whole experience of the drive down to the ‘Pink Palace’ [AKA: Loews Don CeSar] is worth the journey itself especially driving through Tampa, Florida. I actually prefer the calm and serenity of St. Petersburg than Orlando itself. [Don’t get me wrong I absolutely adore Disney but I do like some peace and quiet too!]. I was looking forward to our road trip the whole holiday so when the day came I knew I had to do a blog post down there. It is about an hour and a half drive from where we stayed in Clermont, Orlando.

Now lets talk about the outfit, probably my favourite summer outfit purchase this year. I first spotted this ‘dress’ in H&M when Nick and I had visited Cardiff to have a browse one Sunday afternoon about three weeks prior to this holiday. Even though I love H&M [its my second favourite shop after Zara of course] I wasn’t actually planning on going in there. We happened to go upstairs in the St. Davids centre to get a Starbucks and I thought I may as well pop in. Well, I am so glad I did as I spotted this ‘dress’ buried amongst the numerous rails crammed together, on its own, on the end, the last one! It was honestly love at first sight. I was attracted to the unusual print design and the mix of pastel and bright colours used, I took it straight to the fitting room to see if it was meant to be. Fortunately it fitted perfectly but I was surprised to find out it wasn’t in fact a dress like I had originally thought, it was actually a playsuit to my surprise. The material is so thick and structured you would never really tell that it is actually a playsuit until you put it on as it puffs out so much. I really didn’t want to spend anything as I had spent a lot on the holiday itself but Nick liked it on me, I liked it on me so I thought why not and at £39.99 I went straight to the till. It was my lucky day as it went through the till at £20.00! [I do love a good bargain] I couldn’t have been any happier and I thought straight away I have to shoot this on holiday as it would be the perfect outfit with the Pink Palace in the background, so that’s exactly what I did.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post, Have you got any favourite pieces from H&M?
