I nabbed this beautiful navy jumpsuit in an ASOS sale. (There were loads left in the sale, so it must not have sold well – I’ve no idea why. It’s really thick and tailored, quite good quality.) We have a few early spring weddings to go to this year, and they’ll fall just at the time of year when it’s not really warm enough for bare legs yet. Most of my wedding appropriate attire is short-sleeved and would definitely necessitate tights, so I wanted to look into an alternative so that I’d still feel dressy enough, but also comfortable and warm.
This is my first jumpsuit and I’m now an absolute convert. It can be dressed up or down and I’m looking forward to getting loads of wear out of it. Also, one of my favourite things about neighbourhoods in York is that they all have tons of lovely little alleys running through them (Sam calls them snickets). They make for excellent semi-untrafficked places to take outfit photos. Though when this shoot was happening, it must have been a run on our local fish and chips shop, because dozens of people kept walking by with their savoury boxes.
It also has pockets. POCKETS. I’m a firm believer that all ladies clothing should come with pockets, and a dress having pockets has firmly swayed me to buy it in the past. I did need a little reassurance from Sam that I didn’t look like a flight attendant from the 1970s (I think it was the navy colour plus the cut of the jumpsuit that worried me.) Though I guess that there are worse things in the world than looking like a vintage flight attendant.
Are you a jumpsuit convert or do dresses still hold the key to your heart?
