Love love loving this outfit, and it was totally down to an Instagram photo I saw on Friday night and just knew I had to recreate! As with most of my style inspiration, it is in the form of the one and only Alexa Chung, and this beautifully laid back easy outfit she was wearing. Straight away I wanted to wear something like that and started searching various places to find the perfect maxi dress and jumper combo, then I thought, what if I could recreate this look using the clothes in my wardrobe rather than buying even more clothes! (Which enviably I will!) But for now, I thought I'd dig around in my wardrobe and try and come up with an outfit that I love and I have. I completely forgot about this jumpsuit and now it's a bit warmer I'll definitely be wearing it more again, it's so comfortable and floaty, and is perfect for those relaxing Sunday afternoons at a BBQ or picnic, then I added this jumper round my waist in the style of Alexa's outfit and chucked on my converse and literally said out loud, YES!

So this little outfit just goes to show that you don't have to buy a whole new wardrobe just because you've seen an outfit you love, just have a dig in your wardrobe and you'll never know what you might find!
