I have a thing for flared jeans, trousers and jumpsuits, so it was an easy decision when it came to purchasing this gorgeous jumpsuit from Solace London. I love this brand and have been admiring all the pieces in the collection. The pieces are all unique and different, this Mallory Jumpsuit in Cream with blue Pinstripe is absolutely stunning. A Modern strapless jumpsuit with asymmetrical sculptural ruffles. It has been softly tailored with wide leg trousers and exaggerated pleat details. This style features a fully boned stretch corset for additional support and fastens with a concealed zip to the centre back. Crafted from a combination of sumptuous medium weight pinstripe cloth which has a subtle sheen. All in all a stunning unique jumpsuit in my opinion!
So whilst on holiday in Crete, my husband, the boys and I decided to venture into Rethymno a small town about 10-15 mins drive from the village of Prines, where we were staying to head to the beach. It was such a hot day that we did not stay for no more than two hours. The sand was so hot that boys could not walk bare foot on it, so that put playing football to a halt. Of course they did not take my word for it when I told them that the sand was going to be scorching hot! However, they managed to build a sandcastle under the umbrella in the shade and spent some time splashing about in the sea.
Our driver on our way back to the villa recommended this restaurant as we were talking about the stunning views. The place he highly recommended was the Prima Plora restaurant. The restaurant sits right opposite the Fortezza which is the citadel of the city of Rethymno and it is meters from the sea. I mean you are literally steps away from the sea and thats no exaggeration. We headed there for six o’clock as my middle child is an early sleeper and an early waker too. So to make sure he didn’t fall a sleep at the table we went a little early. The food was excellent and did not disappoint as advised by our driver in advance and the service was also excellent too. The views were truly magnificent! In order to understand how much we enjoyed eating here, I have to tell you that we visited the restaurant twice in a week. Although it came second to our local restaurant in Prines only because the Veranta was 7-10 mins away and we could walk there. The boys truly loved walking and exploring the village, specially making friends with the neighbouring horse who loved eating apples and grapes.
So I decided to wear on this occasion my Solace London jumpsuit. As the weather was so hot I wanted to wear something that was going to show off my shoulders and arms, because when that part of my body is covered I generally tend to get hot and sweaty very quickly. I know I could have worn a Bardot style dress, but I was desperate to wear this jumpsuit and could not wait any longer. I paired it with my Aspiga wedged espadrilles in a light beige colour which worked very well with the jumpsuit. Also I find that I can walk better in espadrilles on cobble stone floors, although I didn’t do much walking apart from getting in to the taxi, getting out on the other side and walking right into the restaurant. I Could have done with a pair of extra high heeled wedges as the jumpsuit was just a tad bit long. I didn’t mind it though as I personally love it to be extra long. However as the weather is so unpredictable in the U.K I could not leave it as it is and will be taking it up just a little so it doesn’t sweep up all the dirt from the floor.
For the accessories, I styled my outfit with this vintage gold cross body mini bag. It is a cute little bag, not big enough for my Iphone 7. I did not mind this, as I am always carrying my phone in my hand. To finish the look I wore my Le Specs Cat-Eye Rapture sunglasses.
