In Jumpsuits, I Trust

Not all jumpsuits are created equal.

JUMPSUIT | MULES | CLUTCH | NECKLACES c/o LULU*S

I’ve learned many things throughout my love affair with this particular type of clothing; They tend to be rather man repelling, people are often confused as to how and why they’re worn to more formal events, and most importantly, the majority of the populous that doesn’t quite have a handle on how you’re able to go to the bathroom in less than 30 minutes. Practice makes perfect, friends.

A romper is not a jumpsuit is not a pantsuit. When I think romper, I think of a fun, casual cover-up you’re sporting at a post-beach day drinking event. And when I think of a pantsuit, my mind immediately goes to Hillary Clinton. Not quite the sartorial inspiration I look to when outfit planning for a formal rehearsal dinner. That leaves us with jumpsuits. Ahh, jumpsuits. From overalls to silk, I am telling you, it’s a rare occasion when a jumpsuit is not appropriate. Don’t believe me? Challenge accepted.

You best friend’s baby shower.

A backyard BBQ.

A family function.

Your own rehearsal dinner.

A first date. Yes, a first date.

Because you can’t get enough of that palm print.

Beachin’.

Girls’ night.

Weekend shopping.

Fashion Week.

Your cousin’s wedding.

A black tie wedding. Or this swooshy one.

The Kennedy Center/ a rehearsal dinner / formal Christmas party/ a Tuesday.

You get the point.

We’ve done the dress thing. And truth be told, sometimes they can be a little boring. Spice up your life with a jumpsuit that takes less than five minutes to style because HELLO, one article of clothing!! Want to be anywhere else than that family wedding? I bring you with good times via jumpsuit. Would rather be watching football and eating guac than heading out to that baby shower? Put your troubles aside and hop into that cute AF jumpsuit. Rethinking that Tinder date? Get that jumpsuit on and add an extra chunky necklace to get you through the first round of drinks.

Godspeed, sisters. In jumpsuits, I hope you shall trust.

I’m embarking on a 9 hour road trip this afternoon… After an 8 hour work day. I don’t really wanna talk about it. I DO, however, want your suggestions for Podcasts. I’ve already downloaded Criminal, Stuff You Should Know, and Stuff Your Mom Never Told You.

My best purchase from the Nordstrom sale? Probably this jacket but since I’m looking ahead to a week of travel, these brushes turned out to be a bangin’ idea.

The second best travel idea? This travel toothbrush. I want one in every color. Practical.

After 3.5 years of blogging, I decided my bed no longer made for a proper workspace. I spent less than $100 on this white Parsons desk and couldn’t love it more. It also comes in black.

Finding your distressed denim not distressed enough to your liking? Welcome to my life. Use this guide to tear things up a little more. You will not be disappointed.

In the market for a new mascara? This is the stuff dreams are made of. It’s the only drugstore mascara I’ve found that keeps the curling wand curl.

Fall is almost upon us (yesssss) and you know what that means! Well, it means lots of things but most importantly, it means it’s time to stock up on kohl liner. This is the best I’ve been able to find. Can I get a shout out to all these killer drugstore products!?

Into that marble contact cover I have on my laptop? Now you can get your own for $25 bucks.

Calling all working women! Check out WWD’s 10 commandments.

I found Matt Bellassai over the interwebs and my Wednesdays will never be the same. The way he elaborates on Why Kids are the Absolute Worst will always have a special place in my heart.

 

Prone to cracking your phone screen? Aren’t we all? I’ve had my iPhone 6 Plus for a little over 2 weeks now and I’ve already cracked the screen. Thank Zeus for this screen protector – the plexiglass screen cracks so your actual screen doesn’t. It’s $35 and comes with a lifetime warranty. It took them two business days to ship me a new one when mine cracked. I love you, 2015. For iPhone 6 Plus | iPhone 6

Sometimes you come across a maxi dress that you know has the power to change your life.

Loft Stripe Halter Maxi Dress District Sparkle Meaghan Moynahan

Especially if you can go braless in it.

LOFT MAXI DRESS
 // similar | PARKER THATCH TOTE c/o | SHOEDAZZLE HEELS // similar | MADEWELL BAR STUDS and BRACELETS 

But when that dress is $98, those dreams of picnics at Gravelly Point and Instagram shots of you twirling in that perfect summer dress are crushed. They’re crushed hard.

The savvy shopper that you are, you mark it in your favorites bar and play the waiting game. You hunt it like a jaguar hunts its prey; Lying in wait ’till you get that email in the middle of the day: LOFT 40% OFF SALE. The time is now. You buy the dress. It’s even more magical in person and all of your dreams come true. The end.

Interested in partaking in your own sartorial happily ever after? The dress is still on sale. Get it before it’s gone.
