- Transitional Pieces...

Playsuit, £19.99 £14.99, Missguided

Quite a common activity at this time of year, and one I've seen many bloggers recently do, is swap over wardrobe contents and fling Spring/Summer items into large plastic boxes not to be seen again for several months. This, to me, is a no-no. I love so many of my 'Summer' pieces, so why would I want to see the back of them for three-quarters of the year? Instead, I prefer to incorporate S/S pieces into A/W trends.

For instance, this summer I purchased this lovely, daisy print playsuit from Missguided. The V-neck and tie waist provide a flattering fit and I really enjoyed wearing it on sunny days with bare legs and strappy sandals. However, with more clouds setting in and the temperature becoming a little cooler, this doesn't mean I should set it aside.

Instead, I decided to team it with black tights, a chunky green knit and cute mary-jane shoes for the upcoming autumnal months! I also have a lilac jumper that will be perfect for wearing over the top. Once the cold sets in, I'll be layering this outfit further with a chunky scarf and a coat/jacket. It really is that simple!

Do you swap your wardrobe over or wear pieces all year round? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Ahh that playsuit is the cutest and looks lovely with the green jumper!

  2. I definitely wear pieces all year round if I can. I feel like it's important to get a lot of wear out of what I buy (the result of having been a student haha) and if I love something then I'll want to wear it to death anyway!
    This looks great for winter, especially with the black background on the bottom of the playsuit. Is that cardigan from Topshop by the way? If it is I have the same one and I love it, it's so cosy :)

  3. I love summer and don't want to put my clothes away either! I'd rather just put tights and boots on too! I love the daisy print

  4. Oh yes girl I often wear the same clothes throughout the styled a bit different depending on the season. I'm too broke to have a new wardrobe for each season haha I think you did an awesome job dressing this up for fall :)


  5. Hello Karen! So great to meet you on Friday! I love the print of this playsuit, I'm a sucker for florals and this daisy print is one of my favourites! I like to use clothes all year round when I can, but I always find I have some things that just won't transition. (I can always find a reason to shop!) x

  6. I completely agree with you on this one...however, I have to say I often find it easier said than done to do this on cold, winter days when chunky jumpers and jeans are calling to me! I'm definitely going to make more of an effort though! Danielle x

  7. I am the same I try to get as much use out of my summer clothes before they are banished. I love your daisy play suit and the tights with sandals is a great combination. Really pretty Lucy x

  8. Such a great outfit! The photos are just gorgeous by the way :)

  11. You look very very cute! Love the floral print :) xx

  12. I love how you're able to use your clothes throughout the entire year as opposed to just a season. I'm like that too! Love your outfit!

  13. My favorite outfit of yours so far! I never thought about wearing a romper with a cardigan and it's perfect for fall!


  14. I love that cardigan! And your shorts! And pretty much just everything you are wearing! ;)
