Issa Wide Leg Jumpsuit + Link Up

Issa Wide Leg Jumpsuit

Well we’ve had some glorious hot and sunny weather in the UK for the last few days…sadly it’s now on its way out though. All good things must come to an end. The unusually high temperatures for early May made me feel like I was holiday again. In fact I haven’t even put any of my holiday clothes away yet. I will get plenty of wear out of this Issa wide leg jumpsuit over the Summer though.

This Issa wide leg jumpsuit is one of three that I bought for my holiday, and is probably the most versatile of them all.

It looks like a maxi dress because of the very wide legs – you can’t really tell it’s a jumpsuit until I start walking. The deep V neckline keeps the upper half of the body streamlined in contrast to the voluminous trousers. And it has pockets, which always score extra brownie points from me. This Issa wide leg jumpsuit is one of three that I bought for my holiday, and is probably the most versatile of them all. For a more casual look I would layer a fitted white T-shirt underneath it and wear with my Stan Smith trainers. For cooler days I’d top it off with a denim jacket.

The balmy evenings in Abu Dhabi didn’t require an extra layer. All I needed to add was some jewellery and my cute cat bag; that’s the great thing about jumpsuits – they require very little accessorizing. I finished off the outfit with my gold wedge espadrilles, which gave me a little bit of extra height and prevented the trouser hems catching on the floor.

For once I was actually quite restrained with my footwear choices on this holiday – I didn’t take any heels and I wore every pair of sandals I took! I must be getting better at this packing malarkey. I’d still like more practice though 😉 My next trip will be to my Dad’s in Brittany during the Summer break…and who knows what the weather will be like then!

What are your top tips for holiday packing? Do you manage to pack light or take too much stuff and then regret it?

    Very fun jumpsuit! I really like the oversized wide legs and bold, beautiful pattern. It looks like a perfect piece for travel!

    Love your choice of jumpsuit, dressy but keeping to a more casual vibe. I’ve also just been on holiday and left the heels at home Emma, there has to be a first time to be sensible! Love your sandals above they look so comfortable, just right for my difficult feet – what make are they please?

      Thanks Pam! These are from Clarks – I think they must be a couple of years old now, but I popped in to Clarks the other day and they have some really nice wedge espadrilles.

    That’s a great jumpsuit. I love the colors and the criss cross detail at the bust. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect jumpsuit for my short little self. LOL

    Thank you so much for featuring my look from last week! That was such a fun surprise! I absolutely adore your jumpsuit! I finally hopped on the jumpsuit train and got one and I love it, but now you have me thinking I need a wide leg one too!

      You’re very welcome Laura!

    The oversized abstract print is such a winner-gorgeous look all the way around. I have a new jumpsuit for spring. I need to get around to wearing it-maybe your post will do the trick 🙂

    I love this on you Emma! At first I thought it was a dress, I love the wide leg jumpsuit on you. It fits beautifully and is stunning! Love the little kitty bag
    You look beautiful as always!
    I try to pack light, usually bring some of my Karina dresses since they don’t wrinkle, as the last thing I want to do is iron! It looks like you had a wonderful vacation.

      Thanks Jess! Oh yes, Karina dresses are perfect for travelling. The only reason I didn’t take mine on this holiday was the midi length…I was conscious of covering up outside the hotel.

    Emma, that jumpsuit is utterly divine! The colours are gorgeous, as well as the shape. Perfect for warmer weather. I ought to get myself a few new ones for the summer really.

    I love the jumpsuit, it looks gorgeous on you! I ALWAYS pack too much for holidays. Each time I go away I say I’m going to pack light and think about what I’m taking but then always end up with everything but the kitchen sink!!!!

    • May 15, 2018 / 11:43 am

      Thanks Steph! I’m always tempted to overpack – it’s the last minute frenzy I really have to resist where I just randomly stuff extra things in the suitcase “just in case”…I think I’m finally learning to be a bit more disciplined!

    Beautiful jumpsuit Emma, love it. Great bag too. Thanks for sharing 🙂
