Hope you are well.
Nearly the end of March can you believe it! The weather has been lovely recently, really quite warm on some days, so much so I wore a dress with my legs out the other day! Had to quickly reach for the fake tan though, I really need to get on the sunbed I think!
The grandchildren have been filling my days this week, and tonight I have two for a sleep-over. They are staying for the day tomorrow so I'm planning on taking them to the kids soft play center so they can let off a bit of steam. I can get a coffee there and watch them play, although as they're still quite young I'm sure nanny will have to join in and play with them. 😉
Going back to the warm weather we've been having, I though it might be time to talk about proper Spring dressing like this new jumpsuit I was gifted from Nomads Clothing. One of my favourite things about warmer weather is wearing less layers, I do hate bulky jumpers and and thick coats and adore wearing thinner jumpers and jackets.
Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.
I have to admit to having a bit of a thing for jumpsuits and am always drawn to them. So it's no surprise I said yes to this charming brick red version. The unique pattern holds hues of mustard yellow and mink grey with spots of black running through. I like the fact it can run with so many of the shades, depending on the occasion.
Do check out some previous jumpsuit choices here with this palm tree beauty, borrowed from my daughter & in faux crushed velvet.
My latest addition is from the Esna crinkle range* which features dresses and tops in the same print.
Designed in-house the viscose material hangs perfectly and looks a dream on. It fits true to size and has been cut to give a flattering finish with just the right amount of fabric.
It's easy to get on and off having front fastening buttons - no bathroom issues here! With wide legs finishing just below the knee this midaxi all-in-one gives the appearance of a dress with the freedom of trousers. There's an AND coming ... and it has pockets ....what's not to love?
This will be an ideal look for holidays, when a stroll in the evening to a little bar will be on the cards.
I picked out the ochre tone and threw on my cable jumper, it worked a treat. It's wearable on chilly evenings like this, although not so easy for the bathroom with this on!
I teamed my mules with it, again picking out neutral tones that go so well with basic cream. They are just the best heel for me, I call it that in-between height that's not too high to make walking hard work, & not too flat to be frumpy. My long cream boots would look amazing with the jumpsuit as would my tan version that you've seen so much of over the past few seasons.
This will be an ideal look for holidays, when a stroll in the evening to a little bar will be on the cards, I've just got to wait till June to do it! I'm sure we'll have some warmer days before then when I can enjoy a BBQ in the garden with a glass of fizz and a burger in my best jumpsuit!
Do take a look at the Nomads website as they offer a wide range of stylish pieces, many of which are impressively a sustainable Viscose made from wood pulp which creates a breathable and also biodegradable natural fibre. Thus creating a material that's not only super for the environment but drapes beautifully in all their clothes.
Pop back to see another item I'm smitten with - this boxy jumper will be on repeat throughout the Spring and Summer months.
