Black Diamante Embellished Jumpsuit + Style With a Smile Link Up

It’s funny really, because although our trip to Spain had been booked for a year we were fully expecting it to be cancelled. Then at the last minute, the rules of visiting amber list countries changed and it was all systems go. Finding a new cat sitter, booking Covid tests and ensuring we had all the correct paperwork was stressful. However, once we arrived we realised just how much we needed a holiday. We usually go abroad twice a year, so no holidays for almost two years felt stifling at times.

It’s the uncertainty that I find stressful; I either want to book a holiday and go, or not even contemplate it. I suppose emerging from lockdown and all the restrictions was never going to be easy. We may have to return to some of those restrictions come autumn, so I feel very grateful for this trip!

I bought this black diamante embellished jumpsuit for my trip to Abu Dhabi three years ago and it has proved to be a brilliant addition to my holiday wardrobe

I mentioned last week that I’d treated myself to a few new things for this holiday, including the bright orange maxi dress. However, I bought this black diamante embellished jumpsuit for my trip to Abu Dhabi three years ago and it has proved to be a brilliant addition to my holiday wardrobe. It’s made from a lovely slinky, stretchy fabric that is incredibly comfortable.

The embellished neckline makes it an easy piece to throw on for evening. without having to think about accessories. It would look great with strappy sandals but I can’t do heels on holiday – or at any time really…I even managed to fall over in flat sandals so heels are definitely out of the question! These silver FitFlops are the latest addition to my growing collection. I love the supportive footbed and arch support – something I need as I can’t use my orthotic insoles in sandals.

I wasn’t planning to wear my hair up, but it went a bit fluffy due to the heat. Whenever it’s hot I just want to tie it back to get it off my neck. I’m well overdue a haircut now and I can’t wait to get it trimmed and thinned out at the sides. I bought a visor for this holiday because it’s hard to lean back on a sunbed with a wide brim hat (first world problems, I know!). It actually proved to be good decision because it was quite windy in the afternoons…I don’t think my hat would have stayed on.

The downside is that the sun bleached my hair on the crown and dried my scalp out…I should have used sunscreen on my parting! As my hair was pulled back I chose some big earrings for maximum impact. A gold disc ring and sparkly cuff bracelet finished off the look. Jumpsuits and maxi dresses are my go-to holiday outfits: just add sandals, bag and jewellery…time to party!

What are your holiday wardrobe heroes? Do you love maxi dresses and jumpsuits too, or do you prefer separates?

    Very stylist. This black jumpsuit looks just perfect on you.
    Spain is such a lovely country. I have visited it twice and I hope I can go there again someday.

  2. Laurie says:

    How lovely to get away. You are glowing Emma and I love your hair colour xx

  3. Oh gosh Emma you’re so lucky to go away normally twice a year… we haven’t been on holiday in six years!! I’ll always love a jumpsuit, that’s probably why I have so many 😉 I also think a black jumpsuit on holiday is perfect – I don’t wear black normally as you know (bit like you), but what is it about being in a hot country that makes you want to wear black?! Makes no sense, LOL

    Thanks for hosting sweetie x

    Thanks for the nice surprise featuring my photo!! So nice of you. Your jumpsuit really is THE perfect packing piece. Jewelry and jumpsuit all in one??!! Yes, please! It looks stunning on you.

    Looks like you’re having a lovely holiday (you’re making me excited for mine, which is coming up next month). I always love wearing dresses or jumpsuits on mine too—it makes getting dressed so much easier!

    Oh gosh, Spain sounds incredible. The UK sounds even better for me, but i don’t think it’s going to happen for a while…. what a elegant jumpsuit. I love black, even in summer.

  16. Suzy says:

    I was quite surprised to read the headline before I saw the pictures, Emma. Black? You? You’re normally all about the bright colours lol!
    However, having said that, I think you look absolutely stunning in black! This jumpsuit is beautiful. I love the additional silver. In fact, you’ve reminded me of Fitflops. I used to have a few pairs but didn’t like seeing my bunions in them (!). However, I’ve now fully accepted my feet as as they are, so I might order myself another pair.

  17. Gail says:

    Wow – that jumpsuit is a knockout! And you look great in black, so I am now quite confused about what season you are! Maybe winter, which is the only season that can wear black + bright saturated colours.

  18. You look so fabulous in this sassy black jumpsuit! Sunburn on your scalp is awful though! I am so glad that you were able to go on your trip. I would love to visit that part of the world one day!


  19. Jill says:

    Love this chic jumpsuit! You look gorgeous! And, your photos are beautiful! Thank you so much for the feature!

  20. Sounds like a wonderful trip! I look forward to begin traveling to Europe next year. . The neckline is gorgeous as are you in this! I know I have said this before, but your makeup looks beautiful!

  23. Jacqui Berry says:

    So pleased you managed to get away, what a real treat. I love the black jumpsuit, I’m a big fan of this style and try to always take away one pieces – so much easier to wear, and style. Jacqui

    Such a fun jumpsuit and how nice you got to go on your trip! Our borders are still closed unless you have an exemption sadly, and even then you have to do 2 weeks quarantine in a hotel when you get back into the country, so it will be a while before we fly out of Australia still, haha!

    Hope you are having a good weekend 🙂
