Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is wondering if this Loft black jumpsuit is a Hit or a Miss

Yay! My favorite time of the week is here!!! It is Wednesday, so that means that the week is half over, and the weekend will soon be here. AND, it also means that it is time for my Hit or Miss post. I am showing an outfit each Wednesday and asking for your input. Is the outfit a HIT, or is it a MISS? Plus, would you wear the outfit or parts of the outfit?

If you’ve followed me for very long, you will know that hats aren’t my friend. I’m not sure why I don’t look great in hats, maybe it is because my hair is so thick. I would love to be able to wear baseball-style hats, they look adorable in summer months with a pair of shorts, a tee, and sneakers. My head is also large (insert Joe’s eye roll here), so a lot of hats won’t even fit my head. So, that is why I have chosen a raffia fedora for my Hit or Miss post.

Before we get to the fedora, let’s start with Tie Waist Cap Sleeve Black Jumpsuit. There are several things that I love about this jumpsuit, but one thing that I dislike. First off, the jumpsuit is very comfortable, and I find the v-neck and cap sleeves to be flattering. The jumpsuit comes with a tie-belt, but I have it tied in the back because the jumpsuit is too big for me. I love that this jumpsuit has pockets, and I think the wider legs make my waist look smaller since it is cinched. HOWEVER, this exact jumpsuit is completely sold out, so I can’t reorder in a smaller size. I found several similar ones and I’ll link them below.

Now for the Fedora and all of my accessories. I’ve mentioned (I’m sure you’re sick of hearing it) that I have a vacation planned for April, and I need a good hat to keep the sun out of my eyes and off of my face. I have a HUGE sun hat that is great for when you are walking about, going out to eat, etc., but I wanted one that was smaller also. This Raffia Fedora is super cute, I love the size and the contrasting black band. I’m wearing the M/L, and it fits my big ole head great. Lol!

I bought the Raffia Stretch Belt years ago from Loft, but it is no longer available. I ordered a 4-pack of belts for Amazon that are great, they just have a round buckle instead of the square one. This 4-pack is great since it has a black, and a multi-colored belt as well as two different colors of brown.

The raffia earrings are also old, I can’t even remember where I bought them. I bought a 4-pack of straw earrings to take with me on my vacation. They are lightweight and a little smaller than this pair, and one even has tassels. The long coin-style necklace is an old one from Chicos that is no longer on their website, but the Adeline Link Necklace and the Gold Vermeil Cross necklace are both still available.

The straw clutch is an old one that was a gift from Rodan + Fields when they sent me on a trip to Los Cabo. I recently ordered a similar clutch to take with me on vacation. I’ll be taking the similar clutch with me because I can carry it as a clutch, a wristlet, or use it as a crossbody.

I wore this same denim jacket yesterday, and I warned you that you would be seeing a lot of it. Lol! A denim jacket is so versatile, and it is an essential item that everyone needs in their wardrobe. If you would like for me to do a Spring Essentials post, be sure to comment or email me to let me know. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I thought that the denim jacket by Wrangler would be stiff and thick, and I wanted something for fashion, not roping cattle. The jacket ended up being one of my favorite denim jackets ever! It has some stretch to it, it’s lightweight and unlined, and I love the fit and style. I am wearing a large and it fits great.

Here is the back view of the jacket. You can see the seams and the tabs at the hem for adjusting the fit if needed.

You can see that the jumpsuit has pockets, and you can also see the tie belt hanging down in the back. I was too lazy to take it off since the jumpsuit was too big and I was sending it back. Lol! This isn’t a great photo of my raffia wedge shoes, but these espadrilles are great for Spring and Summer. These sandals run TTS, and they have a 1 1/2″ platform, so be aware of that. I don’t want anyone twisting an ankle and hurting themselves. I’ll link to some lower espadrilles below if you don’t want to try a platform shoe.
