{Fashion Monday} Bodysuit inspired outfits

For the longest time I have loved wearing bodysuits but hardly ever show you how I like to dress them or even showed you a picture of me wearing one as part of an outfit post but today I am going to change that.

I know not everyone loves wearing bodysuits, mostly because of the inconvenience when going to the loo and some feel their body shape doesn’t allow them to wear them, they don’t like them or have no confidence wearing them. I do not have the baywatch body to show off my latest bodysuit purchases, I have the “extra padding” body type and I am still rocking the bodysuit why? Because they are awesome and can allow you to get away with a lot.

  • Bodysuit(s) allow you to get away with wearing high-waisted shorts and not look like your shorts are about to cut you in half.
  • Bodysuit(s) look awesome with high-waisted maxi skirts
  • Bodysuit(s) are easy to dress
Bodysuit inspired

I have been in Dublin for the last four days and majority of my outfits were shorts with bodysuits and one pair of jeans with bodysuits. I managed to pick up a couple of bodysuits from the New Look sale last week and over the weekend I picked up another one in primark or penny’s as it’s known in Ireland.

Irish weather like British weather is known for its craziness and unpredictability. You’re guaranteed it will rain but more often than not You are not sure when the heavens will open and it will pour. I knew going to Ireland to meet up with my Instant friends turned Life time friends would not be an easy feat but I was prepared regardless. I also felt it was about time I started to rock the Butterfly Twists Wellington Ankle Boots (£45) I was sent last month for review.

Though I was prepared for the Irish weather (cold and constant rain), I still felt I could get away with wearing my shorts and pairing them with my recent bodysuit purchases. As I have mentioned above, I think bodysuits are easy to dress and almost everyone can get away with not putting much effort into the outfit (which is what I do 90% of the time). For all the outfits I had one long cardigan mac type coat to have on throughout my time in Ireland. I also had a cross body bag for when we were exploring Ireland.

What are your thoughts on bodysuits? How would you dress your bodysuit?

    I had no idea what a bodysuit was until reading this post and it wasn’t what I would have assumed it to be!

    • July 6, 2016 / 3:17 pm

      Hahahahaha welcome to the world of women pieces lol

  3. July 6, 2016 / 11:15 am

    I love how you have chosen so many great pieces. My favourite is the D&G blue bodysuit, although out of my price range!

    • July 6, 2016 / 1:52 pm

      Thanks Jamsine

    I definitely think bodysuits are great to pair something. They give you a great slim line when you need it.

    • July 6, 2016 / 9:53 am

      Exactly and I am loving them for it

  6. July 6, 2016 / 3:54 am

    I don’t own a bodysuit, but your outfits look great… you got me thinking I should get one!

    • July 6, 2016 / 9:53 am

      And I hope you do end up getting one or two or three 😊

  7. July 6, 2016 / 1:03 am

    I only have one body suit. I think they’re great for if you want something to fit tightly underneath high waisted trousers etc xxx

    • July 6, 2016 / 9:52 am

      Absolutely why I love them and more

  8. July 5, 2016 / 10:55 pm

    I’ve never owned a bodysuit, love the way you have styled yours x

    • July 6, 2016 / 9:52 am

      For real? Why? And thanks

  9. July 5, 2016 / 10:43 pm

    Body suits were so popular in the 90’s. So cool they are coming back. Love your outfit combinations. My girls would look fabulous in them.

    • July 6, 2016 / 9:52 am

      Thanks Chrishelle, I love them more now than before

  10. July 5, 2016 / 6:09 pm

    I used to wear body suits all the time until I had children. Might look into try some again.

    • July 6, 2016 / 9:51 am

      You should they are still as comfy

  11. July 5, 2016 / 5:33 pm

    I love the body suits. I had one when I was younger. I didn’t know that they still make them.

    • July 5, 2016 / 5:34 pm

      Yep they do and they are still awesome

  12. July 5, 2016 / 3:31 pm

    Such inspiring outfits! I do love high-waisted maxi skirts, the grey bag and the blue shoes. 🙂

    • July 5, 2016 / 5:11 pm

      Thanks Jessica, I love them too

  13. July 5, 2016 / 2:39 pm

    I haven’t worn a bodysuit since I was a baby haha

    • July 5, 2016 / 2:50 pm

      Hahaha, time to change that madam 😊

  14. July 5, 2016 / 2:06 pm

    I haven’t owned a bodysuit in quite some time, but I can see your point. They do make certain looks, look better. I think I need to get one! (or two)

    • July 5, 2016 / 2:50 pm

      Or three lol, bodysuits definitely make outfits better

  15. July 5, 2016 / 1:27 pm

    That blue and white stripped swimsuit is just to die for! I love the selection you have chosen! H x

    • July 5, 2016 / 2:49 pm

      Thanks so much, I am in love with it too

    • July 5, 2016 / 2:49 pm

      That’s true

  16. July 5, 2016 / 11:20 am

    First of all..you look great! I really think you can pull off anything when you have a good sense of style and the self-confidence to match it. 🙂 I used to have bodysuits..maybe it’s time to try this look again 🙂

    • July 5, 2016 / 2:49 pm

      Thanks so much Jane, I really appreciate that

  17. July 5, 2016 / 10:19 am

    I used to wear bodysuits all the time in my teens, memories of the poppers coming open all the time irritating me ha x

    • July 5, 2016 / 11:06 am

      Hahaha I remember that when I was young but now they are better I think

  18. July 5, 2016 / 8:31 am

  27. July 4, 2016 / 10:29 pm

    I love how bodysuits sit smoothly under other clothing, but I have to admit the fuss of going to the toilet puts me right off haha!

    • July 5, 2016 / 9:36 am

      Hahaha I think they used to put me off because of the loo but now I am embracing them even more lol

  30. July 4, 2016 / 8:33 pm

    • July 4, 2016 / 8:46 pm

      Hahahaha same here

  31. July 4, 2016 / 8:33 pm

    I haven’t worn mine in a while, but I love wearing them with skirts – don’t have to worry about tucking my top in!

    • July 4, 2016 / 8:45 pm

      Exactly my feelings too

  32. July 4, 2016 / 8:08 pm

    I absolutely love them, but after 2 children, it would just be a good look on me! Haha.
    They really suit you though

    • July 4, 2016 / 8:45 pm

      Hahahaha thanks so much

  33. July 4, 2016 / 7:41 pm

    I used to wear them when I was about 16 and loved them, then I had kids and just haven’t since, I didn’t even know you could still buy them! 🙂

    • July 4, 2016 / 8:44 pm

      Hahaha yes you still can and they are still awesome

    I feel like I am getting ready to date myself, but I remember back in the early 90s when body suites were the thing to wear and you could find all kinds with different colors and style. I am glad to see that they are making a come back.

    • July 4, 2016 / 8:44 pm

      Hahahaha I am glad to hear that and thanks

  35. July 4, 2016 / 6:43 pm

    I have to admit I’ve never been brave enough to wear a bodysuit – they take my back to my childhood though as my best friend back then loved them. x

    • July 4, 2016 / 8:43 pm

      Awe I know when fashion conjures up memories

  36. July 4, 2016 / 4:50 pm

    I’ve never worn a bodysuit because any time I try one on they’ve just not been flattering on me. Looks great on you though x

    • July 4, 2016 / 8:43 pm

      Thanks

  37. July 4, 2016 / 2:40 pm

    I wore them first time around and loved them, but haven’t tried them recently. Like your stripy one.

    • July 4, 2016 / 8:48 pm

      Thanks love, I love them too and can’t get enough

  38. July 4, 2016 / 12:11 pm

    I used to love wearing bodysuits. Don’t know why I stopped! Love your inspired outfits, especially the blue/white striped one. That would be perfect with shorts and cute sandals in the warm climate where I live.

    • July 4, 2016 / 12:36 pm

      Thanks Ellen, I also didn’t know why I stopped but now I am relearning and reloving them
