How To Wear A Short Jumpsuit: Over 40 Style. Hello friends. I love short jumpsuits but I am getting a little too old for them to love me back.

That was until I saw this one!

A short jumpsuit with a long wrap-around skirt attached. What a perfect combination?

I have had my eye on this jumpsuit in Primark for over a month now.

Trouble was, my local store only had a size 8 left in and with their sizing that would be about 2 sizes too small.

I did not want to leave it though. It has been ages since I seen something I instantly loved straight away. No use buying something too tight though, been there, done that!! brought the tee-shirt, ha!!

I have a wardrobe full of things I love but can’t squeeze into. Over the last few weeks, I pop into my local store but no more sizes were added. What a shame.

My Lucky Day:

On Sunday we had an afternoon out at Meadowhall. After being stuck in traffic for ages we eventually arrived with a few hours to spare before they closed early.

A nice stroll around the shops on a Sunday afternoon.

I was just walking through Primark on my way to look at the sale rail when I spotted my dress on the rail. I had completely put it to the back of my mind.

A selection of sizes too. Eek!!

Perfect, well almost perfect!!

This jumpsuit was not on the sale rail, imagine if it had!? but never mind I had eventually got my hands on one and in my size too!!

Perfect Colour, Pattern And Size:

What a lovely style, pattern, colours and fit too. Love it!!

I picked these shoes up from a local market stall on Sunday too. A pound!!

Brand new off a shoe stall, all boxed up. My Daughter bought some jelly shoes here too.

Her buckle fell off as soon as she wore them so I am not expecting them to last long!! Ha! Maybe if they just last for Summer!?

I think this jumpsuit is going to be perfect for Summer, especially when we head to the beach!!

This is me

Just showing you the back but can not wait to cut them irritating clothes tags out!!

I cut them out of everything lately as they cut my back when rubbing up and down all day long. I have a scare from tags over the years, grr!!

Have you seen something lately that you really want but they have sold out of your size?

Have you managed to get hold of something you really wanted, eventually?

    This is such a cute jumpsuit, Claire! I have always liked the rompers with the attached skirt for a bit more coverage. The print is so pretty, too, and it is making me really yearn for some springtime weather. And the shoes are fabulous! Did they end up lasting for you?


    • 18 March 2021 / 21:59

      Thanks lovely. I only wore them a few times but still like new 🙂 I need to dig them out.

    • 13 March 2021 / 23:06

    I love your jumpsuit. Primark are great but the sizing is so hit and miss. I found a wonderful pleated skirt there but only in sizes 8 or 20 which is often the case. Your shoes are a great bargain. Why can't I drop on such things!? #pocolo

    • 21 July 2017 / 20:15

      Thanks Louisa, I hate it when I can not get my size. My local store sell out fast of my sizes but I usually find them straight away at the bigger stores 🙂

    Oh I'm so glad you finally found it. It's really lovely – I'm actually thinking it would be perfect for my Cambodia trip, to keep the mozzies off, but still be cool and pretty.

    • 20 July 2017 / 19:24

      Thank you. Whoo yes it would be perfect for this 🙂 I am hoping to get to the beach now!!
