Another jumpsuit and another windy day at the waterfront... Last month I went out for lunch and a shopping trip with Renee, we had a quick stop at the waterfront too. Jumpsuits are so good for windy days by the water and this one is a dream to wear! My hat didn't last long, as you can see I had to hold onto it in all photos! Because it was so damn windy I added a couple more photos so you can have a another look at the jumpsuit without the wind haha.

This is a new design by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury and it is made with lovely rayon crepe de chine fabric which is great for summer. I went with a size 8 for this jumpsuit and find that it fits well but it has quite a relaxed-looser fit which to me is great for eating and comfort purposes (you know, the usual two important factors I mention in most outfit posts lol). If you want a tighter fit I do think you could size down but this suits me just fine and the ties on the jumpsuit pull in my waist. I was chatting with Charlene from Rock n Romance and she has been wearing blouses underneath her jumpsuit for the cooler weather so I will have to try that next year. I wore this jumpsuit with the Collectif cardigan I have been sporting in recent blog posts because red and blue are always a classic combo. 

The weather has been all over the place this week, just the other day I was wearing one of my big warm coats as it was raining and really cold, today I was in a sundress! I just hope it holds off because I have a specific day I am planning to photograph something and I need the sun to shine. Chromefest is next weekend, it's a big local rockabilly festival located by the water, the past two years that I've attended had perfect weather so let's hope that it's sunny this year too, I have a really fun outfit planned with warm weather in mind. Fingers crossed!

  1. One word- CUTE! This is a very nice vintage-type jumpsuit paired with a cute hat and some pretty sandals. Nice smile and hairstyle also.

    By the way, this is my first time on this blog. I am John from the United States. It is a pleasure to visit this blog.


  2. Another awesome jumpsuit Kayla and such fun photos by the water!
    I wanted to go to Chromefest, but it's a bit hard to get the time of work, to travel and stay down your way for a few days, hopefully next year I may go! I hope you have a great time and looking forward to seeing photos! :)

    1. Thank you Camilla, hopefully you can make it next year.. That would be awesome! :) x

  3. Gorgeous outfit and like you mentioned, a perfect outfit for windy weather! I love it both with the hat and with the red head tie. Fingers crossed the sunny weather holds up for you for your event next weekend.

  4. This jumpsuit is amazing - and super flattering. What a simple way to get a fab outfit and be comfortable. Now if only they'd make cute retro jumpsuits for shorties... Blue and red is my all time favourite colour combo :D x

  5. The drape of that fabric is so luxurious! I bet it is lovely to wear lounging about too. Very feminine, and a great combo with the red cardigan.

  6. Such a gorgeous jumpsuit! You look so beautiful and I really love your hat.


  7. I love the energy in these photos! That jumpsuit is most pretty, I love the triple strap detail. Great colour on you too x
