Wearing the black jumpsuit

Here’s some news. Big news.

For the first time ever, I’ve worn a jumpsuit. This super-soft and stretchy black jumpsuit from Katies was exactly what I felt like wearing on the weekend for a girl’s night out.

You see, Peta and I had been talking about heading out on the town for wine and dancing for months and months now, but that afternoon, the sky darkened and the rain rolled in. I worked all day, felt exhausted, and didn’t feel like going anywhere.

Our text conversation that afternoon:

But HELLO brainwave. I wanted to wear my pyjamas and feel cosy and comfy. and I had this lovely jersey-weight black Katies jumpsuit hanging in my wardrobe with the tag still attached. Could I wear it? I’d had reservations ever since it came home with me, thinking so many negative things about jumpsuits – Kim Kardashian’s butt looks ridiculous in them, I might struggle in the bathroom, my butt would look ridiculous in them.

So, I did what I never do when I’m unsure about an outfit – I wore it anyway!

Let’s all take a moment to note that Peta snapped these outfit photos of me at the end of our night, it was a crazy arm-waving, blurry situation but it’s real. I wore a jumpsuit out, rocked it, didn’t get all tangled in the bathroom, and will definitely wear it again.

(Because I’m an awful friend, I didn’t take any photos of Peta’s lovely outfit. Hopefully one of the other girls we were with snapped a few, she looked lovely as always.)

Have you worn jumpsuits before? Do you have any favourites, or suggestions on how I can find more styles that will work for my figure?
