This week’s #iwillwearwhatilike theme is dungarees, overalls or jumpsuits – although I’m a big fan of dungarees I thought I’d go with jumpsuits for a change!
My bright orange jumpsuit is by La Redoute and it was one of those items I truly hoped would look as good on me as it did online. Jumpsuits are often hard to get right where fit is concerned – if you’re short or long waisted that can definitely cause you problems. Luckily this fitted me perfectly (I’m long waisted), so I was ecstatic that I could now extend my orange obsession into a head-to-toe orange fest.
As I’m also currently favouring brights with black and white, I wore it with my black and white window pane jacket (similar), rolled up the hems a couple of times (I may take them up) and added black pointed heels. It definitely needed a statement necklace so the Aztec-style eagle necklace got rescued from the potential jewellery decluttering pile and gave the t-shirt style top half of this jumpsuit the oomph it needed.
DESPITE THE USUAL GOING-TO-THE-BATHROOM HASSLES JUMPSUITS CREATE, I WISH I HAD MORE. THEY’RE THE TROUSERS EQUIVALENT OF A DRESS: THROW IT ON, ADD SHOES AND YOU’RE DRESSED.
Despite the usual going-to-the-bathroom hassles jumpsuits create, I wish I had more. I have a grey one from a couple of years ago that’s a bit of a snug fit now (though maybe I should hold onto it if my #notlambFIT journey continues to go well) – they’re the trousers equivalent of a dress: Throw it on, add shoes and you’re dressed.
And really, do we need any more hassle than that… I certainly don’t 😉
Do of course add your outfits to this week’s link up and you may be featured next week if you’ve linked up a jumpsuit or dungarees!

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist’s list of “inappropriate” items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
The link up goes live every Monday at 3pm UK time and will stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you’re wearing whatever you damn well like!
This is for linking up what you’ve been wearing (or would like to wear) only. I like to keep it all looking tidy because I’m a bit of a neat-freak, so non-outfit links will be removed – it’s only fair to others linking up!
