Without sounding big headed I thought it time to feature more of me on the blog. I love writing about Caspian and parenting, but after a year in the mother-hood I’m slowly starting to feel like myself again. Maybe a more sleep deprived, but much happier and in a lot of ways wiser (if you take baby brain out of the equation) version of myself. I’ve long wanted to write about style so I thought I’d set up a new series showcasing mine in all it’s quirky glory. I’ll also introduce some of my favourite brands both Scandinavian and British.

I’m by no means an expert, but I’ve always loved clothes and fashion, and as an actress I love dressing up. Surprisingly I feel more comfortable in my own skin since becoming a mum. And that’s despite my wonky boobs. My left is alive and kicking, full of fun, where the right one has quiet given up on the milk front and succumb to a deflated destiny. Someone needs to design a customisable bra for breastfeeding mums like me, where each cup is fitted to the individual breast. Maybe with the option of adding an insert to balance out the two?!

This could be why I’m loving play and jumpsuits at the moment as they often have a looser fitting top, so the difference’s not so obvious. And they are perfect for spring and summer.

So in best blogger fashion I’ve taken to classic brick wall posing. We’re too far from Hackey for me to find an authentic background, so I’ve made the one in our garden work for now.

The first outfit I’m wearing is a jumpsuit from Zara. It a classic style in a gorgeous print and would work well for everyday use, though I have the problem that I can’t breastfeed in this one, so will have to save it for child free days. Here I’ve paired it with some wedges from Dune and a Lipsy across body bag. I would team it with a navy blazer for more formal functions or work engagements.


The next one I simply adore. I love the bright purple colour and the cut is very flattering. I suspect it might be handmade as there’s no label in it. I found it in our local charity shop for £4 (!!) and I can’t wait to wear it this summer. I’ll team it with flip flops and a denim jacket for a day of playing in the park and with heels like here for a night out (wishful thinking!!) I’ve chosen simple gold jewellery and found my Merci Maman bracelet from last year’s BritMums Live event matches perfectly.

The last one is a funky Topshop denim playsuit, that’s probably not so much my style anymore. I think it would be great at a festival with wellies and trusted Ray Bans or for a beach holiday, but I can’t see myself strolling down the high street wearing this literately little number.



Between work and spending time with Caspian I rarely hit the shops so a lot happens online. I had a browse and here are some of my favourite play and jumpsuits available right now from high street retailers. What do you think?


The pink jumpsuit is from Zara at £39.99 and perfect for a summer party or even a wedding, if you are not into dresses. The short navy playsuit from H&M is super cute and comes in white too (with a toddler I know that would never work for me though!) and is £19.99. Lastly the Lee denim suit is great for casual chic and with the buttons down the front it’s perfect for breastfeeding. It’s £105 on Zalando.

Do you wear jumpsuits? And what is your favourite piece of clothing?

  1. These are all lovely! Really love your purple one & that pink Zara one. I love playsuits. I love jumpsuits too, but I’m so tall that I never find any I can wear, so I stick to the shorts ones! #KCACOLS

  2. I love it!! You look gorgeous as always!! I have never wore an short playsuit. It will never work on me. But I love the ones with long legs. I have a couple and they are great to wear!! Thanks so much lovely for sharing this at #KCACOLS, 🙂 xx

  3. I’ve never worn a playsuit or jumpsuit, I’m just not sure they’re my style, but they look amazing on you! x #fancyacoffeeFriday

  4. I love jumpsuits, I am totally in love with both the Zara ones! I have a few myself, they are so comfy and perfect for the summer 🙂 thank for your linking up to #fancyacoffeefriday

  5. Hi Nadia,

    I am not a fan of playsuits because I feel they don’t flatter me. Though I love seeing them on others! I really like the classic style one, you can pretty much wear it any time as far as you accessorize it right. You have a great style! Lovely post, thank you!


  6. I totally know what you mean about mismatched nursing breasts and you’re totally right about needimy an insert to make them even!

    LOVE your jumpsuits and your confidence in showcasing them! I haven’t had much luck finding rompers I like but will give them another chance.

    Thanks for linking up with #KCACOLS hope to see you back next week!


    1. Thanks, Tori. Yes, inserts have become my friend. Good luck with the search, there are a lot out there at the moment, so I’m sure you’ll find one you like!

  7. Ooh I love the first one from Zara! I can see me wearing that for so many different occasions. I Haven’t really explored playsuits but you’ve inspired me! #coolmumclub

  8. Love the zara jumpsuit. Mother loves playsuits and jumpsuits; at her age (ancient to me) she feels more comfortable and stylish in them rather than dresses #puddinglove

  9. You look absolutely amazing and jumpsuits definitely work on you. Well done for taking a different approach to your blog and featuring yourself. It’s soon important to make time for yourself as well as your little one, so well done. Great photos too!

    I’m personally not a jumpsuit kinda gal – I just don’t have the legs for it. Plus I’ve got a 40+5 days baby bump right now…but never say never 🙂

    1. You must be so excited! I went 13 days over, so I know how you feel. Wishing you all the best for the birth. And yes, not sure there’s a market for jumpsuits with bump room, but you never know 🙂

  10. Some brilliant photos 😉 loved the wonky boobs comment, unfortunately both of mine have gone to the delfated stage now (very upsetting). Can’t wait for summer to get my playsuits back on, my only niggle with a playsuit it going to the loo! Thanks for linking up #PuddingLove and I saw your great link on #Fancyacoffeefriday too

    1. I think my left one will go like that as soon as I stop breastfeeding, but hey it’s all part of being a mum, right 🙂 And yes, completely agree with the loo problem in playsuits!

  11. I was just thinking the other day I want to get a play suit they all look fab on you! I am still gyming it to get summer ready but def will consider one! ps purple one my fav! #thelist

    1. Thank you, Nadine. The purple is my favourite too. I’m sure all your hard work will pay off, I try and tell myself that carrying my 12 kg toddler up lots of stairs is sufficient workout. Thank you for coming by 🙂

  12. I love playsuits and jumpsuits. I always have to have a good look with the long legged ones to make sure we don’t go into pyjama looking ones!;) The photos are really good in your post, makes me think of the summer time:)

  13. Come on Summer, we want to get our playsuits on! I love that denim one but you’re right, maybe if I was ten years younger?!
    Loved the last one too until I saw the price tag! Talking of which – the charity shop find is quite inspiring! I should go charity shop shopping…
    Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub, you look amazing…born to be stood in front of a brick wall 🙂

    1. Yes, I always wait for the sales with price tags like that. But as you can see have found the charity shops so good here. In Denmark we only have a few and they are full of old people’s clothes. I have a feeling not many people donate there, so it’s only when someone pass away that their things are given to charity shops. Such a different story here, and many charity shops are almost as good as the new ones.

  14. You look mighty fiiine! Bravo. I love a smart playsuit. It’s a challenge to find the right one, but you’ve put the idea in my head now. Thank you. x #coolmumclub

  15. LOVE playsuits! When we lived in Singapore I literally LIVED in them. I wish we had more warm weather here and then I would be doing the same again. LOVE that Zara one fab selection hon and thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub! xx

    1. Yes, I wish we had warmer weather here too. Though it’s generally better than in Denmark, so I can’t really complain. Thank you for commenting and hosting.
