Is there a happier combination than pink and orange? I guess I’d only need to add yellow to the mix to make this outfit even brighter.
Regular readers may recognise the jumpsuit I’ve worn a few times on the blog, once being with my fave windowpane check jacket and another time when I wore it to the blogger meet I hosted, as mentioned in my top 10 blogging career highlights post last Friday.
In fact I loved this jumpsuit so much I bought it in burgundy as well and wore it on Christmas Day… to say I’m getting obsessed with jumpsuits is a bit of an understatement. They are just so easy to throw on and accessorize with pair of statement shoes and a necklace or some other jewellery. For me it’s worth the inevitable bathroom issues, though I know many find wearing any sort of all-in-one an inconvenience.
This time the jumpsuit (it’s short-sleeved) just wasn’t warm enough by itself, so instead of wearing something underneath I decided to wear my Winser pink coatigan (similar) over the top instead.
The thing I like about a jumpsuit under a longline coat or cardigan is the “column” that it creates underneath – a coatigan is perfect for that… it elongates the body. Wearing separates in one colour underneath has the same effect, it’s a good trick to remember if you want to create a little body or leg lengthening.
SHOP THE LOOK:
I’ve had my eye on a pair of metallic block heel loafers for a while now, and these gold Gucci-style heels were sent to me by JD Williams after I spotted them (or should I say “pounced” on them) at the video shoot I did with the brand the other month.
(By the way have you seen JD Williams’s fabulous new TV advert? It’s all part of their rebranding, and I’m a member of their new Colour Council which I’ll be talking about more on the blog soon – meanwhile you can see me in the intro video for it here 😊.)
Actually the accessories are more than a little 1970s if you think about it – as well as the block heels the long skinny scarf (similar) is very 70s too. I have a few of these scarves and I really should wear them more often – they have the ability to give almost any outfit that touch of cool.
So there you have it for this week’s #iwillwearwhatilike outfit post: I’ll wear clashing brights with gold shoes and a touch of the 70s if I want to – so should you too if colour’s your thing!

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!
