Under The Sea Printed Playsuit

Playsuit AX Paris* | Rings T:S | Nails – Essie (Fifth Avenue)*

A few weeks ago, I did a blog post on one of S/S 12 trends ‘Under The Sea’ over on Modern Girls Guide as the trend was seen on the catwalk last year and is fresh on the high street this summer. It is a new twist on the typical sea life/nautical trend which usually focuses the obvious detailing such as stripes, shades of blues and reds, ropes, boats and anchors. This new summer trend sees heavy use of sea life with new colours, textures and bold prints inspired by sea creatures such as starfish, sea shells, fish, coral reef and even mermaids. I think it is a fun trend! Anything that reminds me of the beach or summer holidays abroad is always a good thing!

This playsuit is from AX Paris and it has a really lovely “under the sea” print, and it is actually the very first playsuit that I own. It is certainly different to anything I own such as florals, polka dots and stripey prints. I am really drawn to anything minty green or aquamarine (that was always my favourite Crayola pencil colour!) so this felt like the perfect choice for my first playsuit!
