It was my turn to choose the theme for this month’s ‘Style Not Age’. And I have jumpsuits on the brain. So a little bit of alliteration to make it ‘Jumpsuit June’, which I thought would make it easy for us all.
Jumpsuits are having a moment, aren’t they? But they are not always easy to wear. First of all, they have to be easy to get off. I mean to go to the loo, of course. I had a bad experience at Marie and Hugh’s wedding many years ago where poor GG had to accompany me to the ‘ladies’ every time I needed to go, so that he could pull down the zip at the back! I just could not reach it and I was a lot more supple then.
But I learned my lesson and have only bought ‘toilet-friendly’ jumpsuits since then.
I have been wearing my Whistles jumpsuit gifted by JD Williams a lot recently. I think I told you that I was featured in ‘Good Housekeeping’ online and they sent me a gorgeous dress and jumpsuit. When I was at a recent L’Oreal event in The Baths in Clontarf, I got some fab pics taken. I was going to keep the pics for this, but I could not wait to put them up on Instagram. Here is one for your perusal. Love this jumpsuit…perfect for holidays, too. And it has buttons down the front, so toilet-friendly! Oh and the bag is from Absolutely Patsy.
So I thought I would bring back out an old Coast jumpsuit for the purpose of the challenge. I wore this to a pre-wedding party last week. It was a most beautiful evening on a terrace in the Royal Irish Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire.
The light was beautiful and kind to older faces! I love that golden hour.
And I have worn this jumpsuit a lot over the years. Yes, it is a keeper. And the zip is at the side making it toilet-friendly. See the pics below.
And now to my friends…
ANNA’S ISLAND STYLE
Anna is wearing an Onjenu jumpsuit. I absolutely love this label. First of all, it is so easy to wear and all of their pieces make a real statement with their vibrant colours and prints. Look at the 70s’ vibe going on here. When you need to do a clear-out, Anna, send it over from Tresco to Ireland! See more on annasislandstyle.
IS THIS MUTTON
Gail is ever so chic in her Phase 8 polka-dot jumpsuit. I would like this too, please. I am a polka-dot fan and I love the style, so check out IsThisMutton.
Jacqui is making a statement in her vibrant abstract-print jumpsuit, but she is not certain she will keep it. I love it Jacqui. But if you pop on over to Mummabstylish, you can find out why she might be sending it back.
Emma, you are a total knockout in this pink number. The colour is fantastic, but the addition of the frills make it sensational. Where is The Style Splash going in this? Check her out here.
Are you a jumpsuit fan? Let me know in the comments below and remember you can follow me on Instagram and Facebook at OVERTHEHILDA. And if you like what I do please tell your friends. I will be sharing my experience of having a COLONOSCAPY next week!
