The New Icons: That Jumpsuit


There's always those items of clothing that no matter how popular and 'trendy' they get, no matter how amazing they look on everyone else, you just don't get it. This item for me, is the jumpsuit.

I'm not sure whether it's the perception that it can sometimes - and in reality, most often does - completely swamp your figure if you're on the smaller side, but it can also look a bit, how can I put this... Lesbian boiler chic-esque. If that is even such a thing. Pretty sure it isn't...

Today's "will I look like the bloke that comes to fix the boiler?" jumpsuits comes courtesy of H&M and their new range of 'The New Icons' and all I can say is, why on earth haven't I picked one up before? This H&M gem is literally the most comfortable thing in my wardrobe. Soft, cozy and the smart navy blue colour kiiiiiind of distracts from the fact you're wearing a glorified onesie. Win, win!





Now on to the shoes. I got these in the River Island sale on Boxing day and I'd be an absolute liar if I said that I didn't buy them because I'd seen Kim Kardashian in a similar pair and loved them. Classy girl ;)

Oh, disclaimer, if you've got a bit of an issue with toes, look away now. If you've got a slight foot fetish, 1 - you'll love these and 2 - you're just weird! 



And on to my favourite part of taking blog photo's. The outtakes. Now I know that I'm not the only one that looks back and falls on the floor laughing - slight exaggeration - checking out the ridiculous faces/poses you pull when taking photos, right? Or if you're like me, fanny-ing around, skipping, and generally embarrassing the poor person taking them. I'm pretty sure that's my specialty!


Sexy...

Talking of sexy, what are you loving for Spring/Summer? If you're in the UK, clearly that means, what are you loving for the weather that no longer resembles the Antarctic?

Are jumpsuits your thing? What's the verdict on them? Either way, I have a Space NK and House of Fraser voucher burning a hole in my pocket.

Spring recommendations on a postcard please. [READ: That's the comments section for dopey girls trying to be 'trendy'] ;)

As always, thank you so much for reading!

  1. Haha I own too many jumpsuits. But I do so for the simple fact that

    1. You don't need to shave your legs
    2. You feel like you're wearing PJ's
    and 3. You don't have to worry about making a super-cute outfit. It's all there already!

  6. I love the jumpsuit! I wish they looked better on me.. I'm quite short and in most cases they make me look even shorter! Ah, well!
    The shoes are quite quirky and cool as well! Never seen a pair like this!
    Love,
    A.

    1. Thanks so much Antoinette. I'm pretty tall but they still have a habit of shrinking me somehow.
