The Rainbow Unitard

00:37





rainbow stripe unitard - Motel Rocks
choker - Depop
lace up platform boots - H&M
bag - Skinnydip London
lipstick - NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in "Soft Spoken"

I feel like unitards are the definition of sartorical marmite; you either think they're tacky, unflattering and reminiscent of the 80s (not in a good way) or you think they're the sassiest type of clothing ever. As you can probably tell from the above pictures, I fall firmly into the latter category and can fully confess to being a unitard enthusiast through and through. It has, however, taken me a good year and a bit to pluck up the courage to buy one as they are /very/ statement and definitely take guts to wear out due to the extremely figure hugging fit (I've never been a body confident type of gal unfortunately) - but when I saw this beauty on Motel Rocks' Depop page I couldn't say no and bought it straight away. THANK GOD might I add, as it has instantly become my new favourite going out outfit plus I actually think it's super flattering on. I wore this look while visiting my sister at her uni on a night out and felt great, there's definitely something fun about mixing it up and wearing something other than a dress to the club - plus it's way comfier! I thought the unitard would look super cool grunged up a bit so I decided to pair it with chunky lace up platform boots and a choker. I'm really interested to hear what you all think about unitards - would you wear one?

Confession time: I was actually really unsure about posting these photos because while I adore this outfit, some of the pictures look kind of unflattering due to my bony hips and lack of chest. However I think it's important to show what bodies really look like in clothes and as I mentioned earlier, I felt amazing in this outfit and I really love the styling so why not share it with you all? Bodies come in all shapes and sizes and look fantastic in whatever you decide to put on them. <3 I believe it's super important to be real on social media, including blogging, as the idea of trying to create perfection and show the most "aspirational" versions of ourselves and lives is definitely a trap that it's easy to fall into. A lot of the time we can be way too self critical on ourselves - most of the time people don't even notice the thing that we're agonizing over in the attempt to create the ideal blog shot! 

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend <3

You're pretty and I can see it. You're passionate and love what you're doing. :)
