It's been a while since I last wore a jumpsuit (nearly 3 years in fact!) but I have no idea know why as I really love them! I had a bit of a faff with this jumpsuit when I first bought it as the large (my usual size) just looked too oversized so I sized down and the medium is perfect. I know jumpsuits aren't for everyone but this one is just slouchy enough to be comfortable and I feel really darned cool in it. It's from my beloved Monki but you can get it even cheaper over at ASOS and I really recommend you do, this is one of the best outfits that I have worn recently! The Edinburgh cobbles certainly help with the cool factor too...

I ended up looking a bit 80s business woman in this outfit thanks to this blazer but that's never a bad thing in my book and I definitely felt super sassy strutting along the Royal Mile! I can't be the only one who's obsessed with Absolute 80s can I? I swear it's the only thing that is keeping me upbeat at the moment with all the stress of packing!
I kept my make-up fairly simple as the jumpsuit was statement enough- just some liquid eyeliner (I am definitely improving!) and Allure, my favourite peachy lipstick from the Poppy King x No.7 range. This dainty deco-inspired necklace was the perfect finishing touch and subtle enough not to compete with that awesome graphic squiggly print! I was stupid enough to forget to pack my hot brush when I went away so my hair went au naturel. Luckily I was still able to wrangle it into something resembling a style so I am planning to cut back on using heat on my hair, I didn't for years but this shorter cut does require a bit more maintenance!
The legs on this jumpsuit are slightly cropped so are perfect for showing off your shoes. Thanks to packing restrictions I didn't have many shoes with me but I am planning to try it out with my teal and orange shoes soon which should be awesome!
Would you ever wear a jumpsuit?
