OOTD: That Zara Pyjama Playsuit


If “jumping on the bandwagon” was a GSCE, I’d have got an A*. A degree? a First. A driving test? smashed first time – OK, stop bragging you arse and get on with the post – but no, this is not me trying to ‘big myself up’/make me feel like I’m actually good at something/over compensate for the lack of qualifications listed above in my own educational life (well, it probably is a little bit of that too) what I’m actually trying to get at is, if something’s been hyped up across the blogosphere – 1) if anyone can say that word without feeling like a massive tit, please let me know? and 2) if anyone ever meets me in real life, please feel free to slap me in the face for using it! – then you can bet your bottom dollar I’ve caved and bought it too.

The item in question today? That pyjama-esque playsuit. First Vivianna rocked it, then I saw it on Suzi, shortly followed by a tonne of people all over the likes of lookbook, Instagram etc. and then, my hands slipped on the mouse, randomly ended up on the Zara website, accidentally hovered over and clicked the ‘Add to bag’ button and somehow managed to type my details out and bob’s your uncle. Bought. Isn’t it a bitch when that happens? (“No, you’re the bitch” Screams my poor, increasingly dwindling, purse!)

Said Pyjama style playsuit. With a side of cheesy/vacant/standard ‘awkwardly grabbing the barnet and staring at the floor’ poses.

Recycling bins in the background. Classy as ever Elle, classy as ever!

…and when you’re face is cramping up from fake smiling, you still don’t like any of the pictures and are fucked off have had enough of passers by giving you funny looks….it’s time to wack out the standard ‘hair grab, look down pose’….
… voilah! *repeats over and over again* Must learn a new pose, must learn a new pose!

Bangwaon/”I look like a grandad” Playsuit: Zara
Worn ’em a million times boots: Ebay
Said Vacant “Not sure what to do so I’ll just grab the barnet and stare at the floor pose: Models own

Now, I know Hugh Hefner/’Grandad chic’ – can’t quite believe I just put grandad and chic in the same sentence – isn’t for everybody, and this playsuit especially is a bit of a love/hate item* but personally, I bloody love it – obviously knob head or you wouldn’t be wearing it – and the fact that it’s so unbelievably comfortable literally makes me not want to take it off. (#Tramp) It’s basically a more socially acceptable version of a onesie (I don’t care who you are, if you wear a onesie outside, you’re a tit!)….so if you manage to pick this up in store or online – I got mine online, in the sale for £12.99, Charlie Sheen ‘Winning’ or what? – then I can’t recommend it enough!
So, am I the only that caved to Blogger hype? Has anyone else given in and purchased this little bad boy too, what do you all think? I’d love to know!
*oh, and would anyone judge me for giving myself a pat on the back for using the love/hate term without making a reference to Marmite? If you do, judge away….

Hope you enjoyed this post guys. As always, thanks for reading!

    I would not be able to pull that playsuit off, but power to you for being able to! Also, pfft, you'd think pedestrians would be aware of the world of bloggers and totally used to having someone have their photo taken!

      Ahh I don't know about that but thanks Maria 🙂 I know, even not being a blogger you wouldn't think that having pictures taken was anything to get excited about. Apparently not!

    I'd actually never seen this before! It looks incredibly comfy and pretty – for a night in. Definitely looks like pyjamas and would not wear it outside, lol.
