Jump, for my love...

This jumpsuit is one of those pieces in my wardrobe where everyone is very scathing about it "Patterned floral jumpsuit? you'll look like a sofa!" but whenever I wear it, I get compliments left, right and centre, it's definitely a piece that looks better on, than it does on the hanger! I wanted to wear it differently to the last time I wore it and so I decided to go a bit more glam for a trip down to the local pub ...  

Jumpsuit: H&M, necklace: Topshop, bracelet: ASOS, bag: Star by Julien MacDonald ,  shoes: Oasis
The best thing about this outfit though was how darned comfy it was, forget your slouchy leggings and cardigans, jumpsuits are the way forward in comfort dressing!


When I find a combination of accessories I like, I wear it to death (remember these boots?!) and so I paired the jumpsuit with these gorgeous pewter accessories which I wore fairly recently. If it isn't broke, why change it up? ;)


The best part of this outfit though was these AMAZING legwarmers. I won them in a giveaway from my darling wifey Laura and decided that the flared trousers camouflaged them perfectly. I'm not normally a fan of the heels and legwarmers look but this was too cosy to resist!

Would you wear a patterned jumpsuit? Do you stick to tried and tested accessories or do you try and branch out?

Ahhh I loved this jumpsuit the first time you posted about it and my love has not waned! It just looks so glam yet comfortable and I really like it with the blazer as well, I think you just have a knack for styling things! I don't own a jumpsuit because I'm the shortest person everrr but I do have a predilection for playsuits...I may have to look into this! xx

Gorgeous! The jumpsuit is lovely, looks very cosy, like a classy version of the baby style romper!!x

Caroline said...

That jumpsuit looks fabulous on you, it's such a great pattern! I really love the jacket too! I'm a bit of a one for sticking to what I know but I'm trying to branch out more! x

I'll be honest: I'm not feeling the legwarmers with it at all - step away. Sans legwarmers it's GORGEOUS! Let those legs flow free! x

ps - unlike Dani, I don't have any jumpsuits because I have a long body and NO-ONE likes a camel hoof. Hell no!

MissPond said...

Love the jumpsuit :) You def don't look like a sofa, it's a really good print!

Harriet said...

I love you in this outfit - it really really suits you so well! (and I am someone who is normally pretty skeptical about jumpsuits!)

You have a perfect hourglass figure in the jumpsuit! Whenever I've tried one on I just end up looking in the final stages of pregnancy!

I'm not really a fashion buff such as yourself, I tend to play it safe most of the time.

Ooh that jumpsuit suits you so much Maria! I'm such a plain Jane with clothes, I just stick to the same things in different textures and hope for the best with layering! xxx

Winnie said...

Haha the hidden legwarmers underneath are a genius idea. Love that jumpsuit. I still don't own anything jumpsuity/playsuity at all. Still waiting for the day that changes! Looking gorgeous as ever :)

The jumpsuit looks amazing!! It suits you so well, and love how you added a blazer to it.

lovey jumpsuit, i loved it when you wore it to the meet up!
and i think it looks grand with the pewter acc's and the blazer..
i have a couple of patterned jumpsuits, mainkly from primark - a horse print one which i love whether it's flattering or not.

Vikki said...

Oh how I wish I could wear something like that. I can usually pull off outfits relatively well being tall but I have a long body so just can't wear these all-in-one things. Sigh.

Hazzelnut said...

I can't like I've never been a fan of jumpsuits (well at least not on me) but this one is kind of swaying my opinion! I am in love with the print!

Clazzerati said...

I can see why you get so many compliments, the jumpsuit is amazing, and you look gorgeous!

I wish I could wear jumpsuits, but being a pear-shape they just look hideous on me!

You look lovely in the jumpsuit, such a pretty shade of green. S x

If I didn't have a bladder the size of a pea I'd be stealing that from you right now!

Roisin Muldoon said...

Aw, now you see jumpsuits would be high on my 'I'm not wearing THAT' list, but you look so elegant in this one, I love it!

Gem said...

I loved this when you wore it in B'ham and I still love it now, looks fab on you xx

Hannypoo said...

Yay! I'm glad this jumpsuit has made a re-appearance, I absolutely love it on you! And those legwarmers look toooooasty :) ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

Hannypoo said...

I love jumpsuit a lot, a this one, from HyM specially, with this cute and chic medium flowers print.

I love your jumpsuit, it looks great. I have one that a friend gave me but it is just a little to floral and I can't seem to work out how to wear it without it looking like PJ's.
