Marilyn Monroe believed diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but I actually think pyjamas are a girl’s best friend. Because, given the chance, who wouldn’t want to wear their PJs all day long? Of course, the sensible compromise would be to wear diamonds with your pyjamas, but sadly life isn’t one giant sleepover, and diamonds don’t grow on trees.
Jumpsuits, however, are basically glorified pyjamas, and this monochrome design is ridiculously comfortable. It has an elasticated waist (my idea of heaven) and a slightly over-generous amount of fabric around the midriff, which gives it a bit of a ‘big lunch or baby bump’ vibe. So far I’ve worn it with heels and a cropped jacket for drinks with friends, with Converse sneakers and a leather jacket for a day of errands, and casually thrown over a white T-shirt whilst working from home. It’s easily one of my best summer buys!

Kylie and I shot these pictures a few weeks ago, just as the Kim and Kanye wedding drama had started to die down. It felt like the circus was finally over and we could all enjoy a moments peace, but then we made a wrong turn on Brick Lane and came face-to-face with Yeezus himself. There is no escape. And now that Kanye poses Spiderman’s superpowers the world as we know it may come to an end. You have been warned…
Are you a fan of jumpsuits? What do you think of this outfit? As always leave a comment and let me know.
