With this khaki Mango jumpsuit. I finally added a khaki jumpsuit to my growing jumpsuit collection. A phrase i never thought i'd say, i genuinely thought jumpsuits and general all-in-ones were a hideous idea that should have been left back in the 80's when they were last deemed as fashionable. But i am the first to admit when i am wrong and i shall eat my jumpsuitted words, as i actually really love this trend. Maybe its the fact that its easy (we all know how much i love easy outfits), it's minimal thinking required, you don't have to worry about what top will go with what bottoms, like with dresses, but better as its day-wear (or in-fact evening wear with the right accessories.. heels, cute clutch, biker jacket..yes..but i digress) that can be worn even when super windy and the temperatures aren't on your side. In other words jumpsuits are excellent for the British climate.
Once again mother nature has thrown us another week of showers and wind, but i am prepared! You can old your dresses 'cos i've got my jumpsuit (having said that, i would still reeeallly like to wear my summer dresses pretty please weather gods, don't let this be it for the rest of the season!!).
So after much, much deliberation and asking my lovely IG pals here which, oh which jumpsuit should i buy? I ended up getting a completely different one, due to the fact the one i was going to part my well earned cash with sold out (did you buy it? DO Tell, is it nice?)
But after frantically cursing at my computer a silver lining appeared.
As you probably know its full on crazy sales season which means bargains a plenty, and what that also meant was this jumpuit falls gratefully in to the category. What was also good was i have a very similar black jumpsuit from Mango so i knew the fit and quality was good (wearing it here).
And at nearly half the price of what i was going to pay, its turned in to one of life's beautiful little purchases.
Don't you just love when that happens? Something you've wanted for ages, deliberating excruciatingly for weeks and then BAM in the sales it goes.. i call that my friends and excellent win for the ladies.. *fist pump* oh yeh.
I decided to go comfy -casual and pair with my new orange Boden Lille lace up flats (i know, i'm terrible, after loving and living in the navy ones all spring i have now invested in the orange too.. on sale i might add.. But yes, somebody seriously needs to stop me.. interfriendsion please?!)
and my aztec soft clutch for a lovely Sunday at leisure.
I accessorised with my gorgeous new All-Sorts Necklace (aptly named as it reminded me of Berties liquorice allsorts sweeties , any one else see the resemblance?) which is just a real fun pop of colour and has the most lovely subtle aztec border to each of the resin stones.. Love.
I finished off with my new Jord Wood Watch.. isn't it amazing! They have the most wonderful selection, this is the Ely in Black but i'm actually really smitten with the Cherry also (go see, gorgeous isn't it?) I have not stopped wearing it lately. Its wood (obviously) which makes it lighter and actually more comfortable than my D&G and Fossil metal watches. It feels perfect for summer.
