I haven’t worn a jumpsuit for over 25 years. The last time I did, there was an . . . incident. I was working for a small company. We had a small office, and one small, shared restroom. I was wearing a fetching pale blue jumpsuit, and while in the loo, the toilet broke and water came flooding out. I ran out of the room, clutching the flaps of my jumpsuit and revealing my silkies to the (mercifully small) staff. Mortified, I was.
Jumpsuits are not practical for visiting the restroom. And they haven’t been the height of fashion for decades (like I care about that!). But recently I’ve noticed some appealing jumpsuits, and I wonder if I should give them a go.
This is the jumpsuit that’s got me to the tipping point. I saw it in a slideshow in The Guardian. It’s got personality without shouting, and it looks youthful and fun to wear. I don’t care for the glam pumps but black booties would be fine. And I think minimal accessorizing is my best choice.

|Elegant, chic. I like the sleeve length and the slightly cropped leg. Nordie’s.|
|Old school! I’d need the right attitude, but I’d wear it, without shoulder pads.

Still, very fab, and I think I love it with flats as shown.
Over to you: would ya? No wrong answers, of course. We like what we like.
Have a happy, happy Monday!
