The Jumpsuit Fix

As a homeworking freelance (over a decade now, yikes!) the ongoing struggle is what to wear during the day as you pass through each season. While I’ve never been in the work in your PJs camp, I have also most definitely not been in the put on a pair of shoes camp!

Mainly because I’m a shoes off in the hallway person (although the other half isn’t, and thus we perpetuate living our parallel realities, lol!) and because shoes get me all up and ready to do battle with the outside world when at home I like to curl up and cosy up.

Yes, I’m a homebird-housecat who likes to slope around beyond comfy through my day.

Of late – having dispensed with the soft slouchy knit for light tees and cotton trousers – I’ve been yearning for something simpler. An easy all-in-one pull-on. I had in my head the notion of a peg-legged strapless jumpsuit. Although apparently the term is bandeau. Either way, 48 hours of searching for this holy grail later, I was still unable to find exactly what I wanted. And if I did see just the thing in Google image search, rest assured it had sold out months ago.

Turns out jumpsuit legs are mainly straight and flared right now. I clearly missed the peg leg moment and am trying to inhabit a non-existent trend in my misguided pursuit.

Eventually, eventually I came back to H&M where New In (ah, how good that section feels) offered up this thin, clingy, can barely feel you’re wearing it, casual-to-the-max onepiece. A low price I know – can only hope their Conscious purveys the collective H&M consciousness.

As soon as I put it on, I felt hard pushed to take it off. The panic that I might wear & tear it into ruin at the rate I plan to wear it. *Pops another XS into bag for near-future panic purchase.

And then although it’s primary purpose was for homewear, I couldn’t bring myself to take it off and wore it out for coffee! Jumping inside for the love of my jumpsuit!

Obviously there are lots more just like I had in mind – have linked a few of my favourites below. May have just bought this leopard beaut eek!
