Jump (for my love)

I am a massive fan of jumpsuits as I have mentioned many times before. Especially when I go away as you only need to pack one piece of clothing for a full outfit. Plus they are super comfy and look pretty cool. What more could you want?

My main trauma with a jumpsuit is my bottom half is bigger than my top, so they are usually a bit loose in places. This one has a gathered, elasticated waist which didn't sit right because of that so I've added a belt which you can't see, to reduce the baggy crotch look. 

There is a zip down the back which is potentially traumatic for toilet trips, but there is enough movement in the jersey fabric that you can manage it without a toilet assistant. 

These shoes are my current favourite things ever, I love the bright pink against the black. They are currently a bargainous £13.50 so I'm inclined to buy a second pair, you know, just in case.... 

No idea why I look like I am trying to snap my neck in these photos, perhaps I am trying to hide the double chin?

Magnificent 7th

Magnificent 7th header

So I've finally managed to take part in a Magnificent 7th post. The photos are really bad, but I'm struggling at the moment since I'm working ridiculous hours, it's always pretty poor light by the time I remember to get outfit photos. Must try harder. Sorry!

This months theme is "something you never wear" and I decided on these leather trousers. I used to wear leather trousers every weekend when I was at Uni to go clubbing and I thought I looked amazing. They were a nightmare to get back up after hours of sweaty dancing but I felt awesome in them so I wore them every week without fail!

Not so much these days. I had an idea of how this outfit would look in my head and it's just not right. The waistband on the trousers is very tight, so I'm grimacing somewhat... and I think me and Kimono's are not best friends. I love the idea of them and when I see others wearing them I think they look awesome, on me I think they maybe look frumpy? Maybe I'd prefer these trousers with a jacket (and an extra inch around the waist). Any tips for stretching leather??

I love the top and I also have it in cream, looks quite dressy for a jersey vest top and I'm a fan of swing tops since I find them pretty easy to wear. Maybe these trousers will be confined back to the never wear pile. Thankfully I paid the sale price and not the original or it would be serious buyers remorse.
