Me and Isobel are back with another “mummy and me” post, and this time we’re wearing jumpsuits! She fell in love with this yellow River Island jumpsuit as soon as she saw it, and persuaded me to order it for her. (I’m such a pushover!) Ever since it arrived she’s been desperate for us to wear our jumpsuits on the blog. It was way too long in the legs, but granny worked her magic and took it up by a good few inches. It’s a perfect match for the yellow boots I bought Isobel for Christmas…anybody would think we’d planned it!
I have probably half a dozen jumpsuits (most sleeveless) but this one is a recent addition to my wardrobe. It’s from one of my newly-discovered brands, Paisie. I’ve bought items by Paisie from Atterley before, but I snagged this jumpsuit – heavily discounted – at Secret Sales. The fit is a little snug around the waist and crotch, and it’s not the easiest to get in and out of. I will need to allow plenty of time for trips to the bathroom when I wear it! The quality is great though; the trousers are lined so they hang nicely.
It does gape at the bust though, so I pinned it, but not very successfully because you can see my nude bra in a couple of shots! I only realised after taking the photos that it came with a navy belt that I completely forgot to wear! I think it would have looked much better with the belt by giving my waistline more definition. You’ll just have to use your imagination!
I thought about wearing trainers with the jumpsuit for a more casual look; but instead I decided on my navy heels and co-ordinating crossbody bag. They pick up on the navy lapel and piping on the sleeves. I added rose quartz jewellery to pick out the soft pink of the flowers in the print.
Isobel raided my stash of sunglasses and picked out these mirrored Skinny Dip shades. She used one of her own bags for a change – I bought her this pineapple one to match mine that I wore with my bright green midi dress. The gold lenses compliment the metallic bag, and the little bit of green adds contrast to the yellow. Now, I’m off to find that belt!
