The Fab 40’s: Jumpsuits!

April 20, 2015

This month’s theme for The Fab 40’s was … JUMPSUITS!

But before we jump right in, I wanted to say a big thanks to everyone who expressed interest in joining our little group. We were so flattered and were tempted to open it up to everyone, but then we felt a bit overwhelmed at the organizing involved and decided to keep it small and manageable. I hope everyone understands.  We know there are so many great 40-something fashion blogs out there and we totally support all of you!  Hurrah for all of us who keep showing the world how totally FAB 40 can be!

Now let’s jump into jumpsuits! 
 I haven’t had a jumpsuit since high school, so shopping for one now was an adventure. I didn’t want to spend too much on this trendy look so I hit up Fovever 21 and got this fun jumpsuit.  I ended up actually loving it. What do you think, Dolls?

It’s strapless, but I doubt I’ll actually wear it that way.  Well, maybe beachside!  
I had planned to add one of my crochet cardigans for a totally boho look but it just ended up looking shapeless.  I thought this tailored cropped jacket looked more pulled together. 

Outfit details & Shopping Ideas:

Jumpsuit – F21 (same)
Shoes – Michael Shannon
Blazer – H&M
Necklace – Kohls
Bag – Carlos Santana

Let’s see what the other Fab 40’s Fashionistas came up with this month …

    I do love a good jumpsuit. This looks great on you.

    I must admit I never wore strapless, especially that style because it always seemed like anyone could come along and pull down the top.

      HAHA … well, I don't have much to see up top, so maybe that's why I never worried about it! 😉 OXOX

    I love strapless and off the shoulder garments. Love how you added the blazer. I love the look of jumpsuits, but the idea of wearing one isn't for me. Here's why…I'm a huge germ-a-phobe, and the idea of having to wear one in a public restroom gives me the heebie-jeebies.

      HAha .. I never even thought of that, Glenda, but you're right … it does take some finesse! LOL. OXOX

    Once again, dearest Dawn…"great minds think alike!!" ;D I just added a Forever 21 jumpsuit to my wardrobe, too…and I can hardly wait to debut it on my blog!! You are ROCKING your strapless, black-and-white version; and I agree that your tailored jacket makes the perfect topper!! P.S. I'll forever be a fan of Forever 21; not everything works, but I can almost always find a piece or two to love!! XOXO

  • Reply Queen In Between April 23, 2015 at 3:07 pm

    I ordered my first one this past week from the loft sale so we will see….jumpsuits were huge in the early 90's but with puffy sleeves and all….I may be scarred from that!!

    • Reply dawnlucy April 24, 2015 at 5:06 pm

      Haha …. yeah I remember a bright red jumpsuit with puffy sleeves I had … shivers. lol. Let me know if you like your one from Loft! OXOX

  • Reply Amy Johnson April 24, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    I never thought in a million years I would ever want to wear a jumpsuit again (mostly for the bathroom issue) but I tried one on just for the fun of it and was shocked at how good I looked in it, so I bought it. My jumpsuit is shorts, so I can't wear it till the weather warms up. But I can't wait to wear it! It's very comfy, and it is so flattering because it hides my trouble spots….like my tummy. Lesson learned…always try it on before you say no.

    • Reply dawnlucy April 24, 2015 at 5:07 pm

      Right? I didn't think I wanted one either, but this style challenge pushed me out of my comfort zone. Good lesson for us both!

  • Reply Carrie April 24, 2015 at 4:14 pm

    This jumpsuit is so pretty on you! There was one at ON that I almost bought with my ON cash, but decided against it… I will probably regret my decision, it had really good reviews, too!

    • Reply dawnlucy April 25, 2015 at 9:43 pm

      Aww you'll know when you find the right one, Carrie! And anything would look adorable on you! OXOX
