This is my first blog post in my new house, YAY! If you’ve moved before,  then you know it can be super stressful. It doesn’t help when all of us get hit by the flu at the same time! Actually, I move so much, this event should really be second nature by now! We’ve left the busy city of London,  for a quieter Surrey. The main reason why we moved was A for more space, and B so Matty could have a garden to play in. Finding both these things in Notting Hill is slim to non!
For today’s blog post I wanted to introduce you to my new classic loafers, by Prof. In my mind, these are an example of chic & classic. I’ve been looking for a perfect yet affordable loafer for a while now, and so happy I’ve discovered these. Made in Italy with its over-sized gold chain makes these babies super chic! I’ve paired them with a classic strapless black jumpsuit and an over-sized straw hat!  Why have I not had such a classic shoe in my wardrobe until now?!!

 

The Iconic Jumpsuit

Meet one of my favourite pieces of style- the iconic Jumpsuit!

There’s no item of clothing that has encapsulated the words fun, cool, chic and timeless as the Jumpsuit has!

Over the years it found its way from its original intent in 1919 as a garment to be worn while parachuting out of planes, (hence the name ‘jumpsuit’ ) and soon after they were called ‘coveralls’- as seen on aviators (Let’s think Amelia Earhart). Evolving, with the slightest push of elegance, the jumpsuit morphed into ‘lounging pyjamas’ which were worn on yachts, on the beach and at home entertaining. Oh! , and now the latest occasion the Jumpsuit has commandeered, think about that killer Jumpsuit for a moment Solange Knowles down the aisle for her wedding! Looks like the humble parachute jump wear is continuing to evolve!

These days all of the above occasions apply and they are a wonderful easy ‘no think’ option to wear alone or with a simple top. Slip it on and go- its like no fuss wear,

No tugging, no tucking, no adjusting, dreamy!

The one I’m wearing is the Vedette Scalloped Vedette Chino Jumpsuit by Anthropologie. I especially love the large belt tie and wide leg!

 

I’ve scoured the World Wide Web to find you a fab selection of jumpsuits, here are my faves!

The Black Jumpsuit

Ok, so who doesnt dream about wearing their Pj’s out all day!? I swear this jumpsuit from Pretty Lavish is the perfect and chicest way to get away with feeling just that comfortable. I didnt even realise my wardrobe was missing such a simple item. I always seem to bypass the basics and opt for the more “Exciting” pieces then to realise that the basic’s actually ARE the more exciting pieces!!

I adore this super low detailed back, and wide leg. The wide leg gives it such a vintage feel and looks fab worn with heels for a dressier look.

I paried the jumpsuit with last seasons Mango lace-up heels, my favorite go to baker boy hat, and my Meli Melo bucket bag!
