I have not, I must admit, ever been tempted to buy a jumpsuit. I’ve always had the whole ‘will I get undressed in time if I need the loo’ worry. Yet so many of my blogging friends have posted outfit shoots featuring jumpsuits that when I saw this black jumpsuit in the sale, I thought I’d challenge my bladder and give it a try 😉

Brightening Up A Black Jumpsuit For Summer

After practising getting in and out of the jumpsuit and being satisfied that that there would be no loo emergencies, my next thought was how to style it. Although I love the pattern on the lightweight top (which hides a multitude of ‘sins’), it didn’t really scream Summer to me. My first thought was to add some colour, which I’ll certainly do in the future. But, being as I’m staying on the boat with a limited wardrobe, I quickly had to discard that thought.

The answer? Bling! I’ve had all this sparkly jewellery for quite a while, it ‘lives’ on the boat. I think the twinkle from the jewellery as the sun catches it, the black and diamante sandals and the hat (which was a present from a friend) elevates the jumpsuit and screams lazy, warm Summer days.

Although part of the same outfit, the sheer geometric top is completely separate and I can see myself teaming it with other clothes. I can also see me styling the jumpsuit in a plethora of ways.

Yet again being part of the blogging community has made me reevaluate my thoughts on what I wear, how I wear it and what does and doesn’t work for me, as a woman in her 50’s. My only advice would be to try getting in and out of any jumpsuit you purchase a few times before you wear it out. This one is a piece of cake, others I have tried since making this purchase have been more of a challenge. Ladies, I think I’m converted – I would actually say that I am now a jumpsuit fan!

You will be pleased to know that I have now worn this outfit a number of times and my toilet worries have been put to rest. Not sure I’d fancy trying to disengage myself from it after a few glasses of fizz though 😂

What do you think? Are you a jumpsuit fan or do they fill you with dread? Do let me know in the comments and enjoy the rest of your day.

    Hi there, I do love a jumpsuit and have just bought another to add to my collection! Yours is fabulous and looks great on you.

    I was down the road from you last week in Westwood! Small world isn’t it?
    Love your hair too, can you do a post on your styles. x

      Thanks Jacqui, I think I will do a video on how I do my hair – you won’t believe how easy it is!
      We were in Westwood Cross last week too. We only popped in quickly though. I wonder if it was on the same day??
