The Fab 40s in Jumpsuits

jumpsuitsJumpsuits were the chosen theme for this month’s collab with The Fab 40s. Last month we all wore marsala in our own way–I chose the sequin Christmas shift I picked up in Bali over our winter holidays. With jumpsuits having a serious moment this spring, I chose it as our theme. I’ve always loved a jumpsuit–especially this oldie but goodie I picked up in Bangkok. For this month it’s been fun to see how the other Fab 40s would style this theme plus I’ve really enjoyed getting to know these great ladies. I’m astounded by some of the really great friendships I am making via connections made online. I think this ability to make relationships from afar is really special, and I’m enjoying meeting and connecting with so many great people around the world! Now, enough of that… go check out how each of us styles a jumpsuit.

Jane of Midlife Fashion
I love how Jane’s look is utterly classy yet the jacket adds a bit of boho. And her shoes compliment the pattern on the jacket perfectly. While I haven’t tried Jane’s jumpsuit on, it just looks super comfortable!

Outfit Details:

Jumpsuit: Wallis
Jacket: Mango
Necklace: bought in Majorca
Bracelets: Ashiana
Shoes: New Look

Dawn Lucy of Fashion Should Be Fun
Dawn’s jumpsuit is actually pretty boho, so I love how she brought in some classiness with the jacket. I also admire that her jumpsuit is also from Forever 41–op I meant 21! Then look how she added a nude shoe; this totally compliments the whole look.

Outfit Details:

Jumpsuit: Forever 21
Jacket: H&M
Bag: Carlos Santana
Shoes: Michael Shannon
Necklace: Kohls


Dixie of Inside Outer Style
I might have to say I like this styling of a jumpsuit best…can you guess why? Yep, simple–denim paired with leopard. Ahh, such a perfect combo. Plus, the denim is so dressy even though denim is usually associated with casualness.

Outfit Details:

Jumpsuit: Zara
Shoes: Vince Camuto
Belt: Jcrew
Cutch: Thrifted
Necklace: Mango
Sunnies: Betsy Johnson

Sheela from Sheela Writes
I love Sheela’s jumpsuit! It’s so fun and wild. It looks super comfortable. I can envision summer nights in this cute jumpsuit. While I haven’t met Sheela in person, I think I gravitate towards her style choices so much because she reminds me of my good friend Weda: bright colors and fun patterns are Sheela’s friend just like Weda’s.

Outfit Details:

Jumpsuit: Indie label
Shoes: Wild Diva
Rings: Poshmark
Palm Cuff: Jenny Bird





And Me!
For my styling, I went with this super comfy faux denim–is there such a thing?–jumpsuit. (Upon looking it up it actually called a mineral wash…) It’s like indigo t-shirt material, and it’s beyond cozy. This jumpsuit is definitely coming to the cabin with me this summer. I just went with my simple suede cowboy boots and gold. When I’m not sure how to accessorize, I usually resort to gold. Easy peasy! (Ironically the last time I styled a jumpsuit, I also accessorised with gold!)

  • I know! I wonder what it will be Jane. I believe Dawn is up next….I have a similar jumpsuit
    to yours. I’ve had it forever and I LOVE it! Here’s to the jumpsuit trend! A x

  • Hi Irmin! Oh, I am so glad!! Thank you for doing so!!

    Ya I guess I do don’t I. At the start of this year, I tried to establish and editing type weekly calendar. On Mondays I try to post my outfits. On Wednesday I write, and on Thursdays I focus on travel. For Friday I’ve been having fun with my Style Stories. That leave Tuesdays. The week doesn’t fall exactly like this each time, but on Tuesdays I try to connect. So for example I might highlight someone who influences me or I might put together a roundup of bloggers. Whenever I travel I try to research the bloggers of the area. When I cut my hair, I highlighted other short hair bloggers. I just go for it! AND I link back and let the individual know. I tweet it, and Instagram it, and link back like silly so the individual knows I’m talking about them. Basically on Tuesdays I try to connect and so that’s what I do when I write about a fellow blogger. Go for it! Would you like to know my most favorite glasses wearing blogger? That would be Frassy
    of course! Oh, she’s gorgeous! (I’ll be highlighting her here soon;)

    Thanks again Irmin! I hope my response helps. I’d be happy to help you research. ;D

    Love, Ann

    What a great roundup, Ann! and you all look fabulous in your jumpsuits. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xo.

    • Thank you Patti! It’s been fun. I’ll be watching out for your version of the jumpsuit:D A x

  • SheelaGoh

    I’m with you, Dixie’s look is my absolute fave. I love the leopard print and how it adds a subtle sensuality to her denim jumpsuit. So lovely. Yours comes a very close second, Ann 🙂 the pairing with gold simply elevates it beyond casual. And you know something? It was because of you that I created The Fab 40s, because of a comment you made about Project Sister Act, and I shall be eternally grateful to you because this little collaboration of ours has allowed me to make so many new friends xoxo

    • Oh wow AWESOME!! That is so cool Sheela. WOW! I’m so glad you included me. It makes me feel like I’m taking my blog to another level when I am able to connect so much. Thank you.

      I’m glad you embraced the jumpsuit too Sheela. You rocked it for sure! 😀 A x

  • Dawn Lucy

    Thanks so such a fun style challenge, Ann, and for your sweet comments! Honored to be part of this group!


    Dawn Lucy

  • Ann, this was such a fun post. Thank you. Everyone’s rendition was so diverse and stylish. You all truly inspire me, and it’s such a joy being able to work with such bold and beautiful women from across the globe…..Thanks to all of you….o

    Ann, I love your jumpsuit, and you sure know how to accessorize, the necklace and earrings are gorgeous.

    • Thank you Dixie! Right back at you!! I love your jumpsuit. It’s super sexy, and with leopard, vavoomba! This sure is fun!! A x

  • Thank you Alena! Let me tell you it was hard to choose the clutch. There were so many pretty colors. I went the navy bluish since I didn’t have anything like it–well not really anyway. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Come again! A x

  • Happinessatmidlife

    All great examples of how fun jumpsuits can be. I have a plain black one that needs to be dusted off and worn. Thanks for sharing these looks!


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

    • Get it out Alice! Tis the trend of the season!! Can’t wait to see yours. Love, Ann

  • Trina

    Great theme you fun women choose. I adore each and every one of them. I can’t say I’m going to join this trend but if I did, my choice would be to borrow yours or Dixie’s, love the denim look.

    • Oh good! I’m so glad. Mine is super comfy that’s for sure. Why won’t you try it Trina? Just curious…

      Thanks for stopping by and for commenting.

      Love, Ann

  • freefromfairy

    Oh wow! You all look seriously glam! I wish I looked like that in a jumpsuit but being a short person means they are hard to pull off!!!

    • For shorter physiques I know this may sound odd, but I recommend a black culotte version. Something along the lines of any of these. Trust me!!

      Thanks for stopping by and for commenting!
