So I was slightly worried when I loaded the blog up that it would have vanished, it’s been that long since I’ve posted – but it’s never been my intention to stop completely! A baby just gets in the way… And my own mind, I guess – in that, when it comes to my style, I’m not sure I know it anymore!
Bags and bags and bags of clothes have exited my wardrobe and gone to new homes – and I actually feel really good about it. But also puzzled about what it is I DO want to wear these days. And honestly, it takes seeing a piece to know that.
This jumpsuit was one of those pieces. The minute I saw it I knew it was the ‘new’ me. I couldn’t tell you why though! My new style identity is definitely something I’m still figuring out – but it’s certainly a bonus if it’s suitable for crawling around after a 9-month-old!
This jumpsuit is from Hell Bunny and it’s super comfortable – it has an elasticated waist and pockets (which I’m finding harder and harder to live without as I’m often carrying a small person) and it’s a lovely soft, light material that’ll be great for hot weather. I need to point out I’ve used the waist belt as a neck scarf and added my own belt, just cos I wanted to. I’m never a huge fan of fabric belts personally and I needed a thicker one because of how this jumpsuit sat on me (I’m pretty short and the fit isn’t exactly as intended!). I also need to mention that the wrap top has a hidden snap closure which makes it a fab choice for anyone who’s breastfeeding – which, I still am, so it’s been tested!
I was worried about how a jumpsuit for an average height person was going to look on short ol’ me, but actually I rather like this! Usually I’d baulk at something a ‘weird’ length, as I’d call it, but even that’s starting to grow on me these days… who even am I anymore?! What do you think – weird length, or working it??
