I have been experimenting with new styles. I think because I’m buying less and buying more thoughtfully, I’ve determined that I have pretty much everything I need for a staple wardrobe. It’s the fun items– like jumpsuits– that I historically haven’t purchased. My mom rocks a jumpsuit like no one’s business and I wanted to have a couple on hand for the summer. I have tried a bunch. Every time I see one and I even remotely find it cute, I try it on. Usually, it’s a big miss. (Word to the wise, pretty much every jumpsuit looks weird on a hanger… you have to try them on to see what they actually look like!!)
I bought this black jumpsuit earlier in the summer and it’s been such a fun piece to have. I tried a few from J. Crew that did not work on my body type or simply had a weird cut. (I have two primary issues with jumpsuits: length and fit. I have a longer torso so usually can’t even put the shoulders on they’re so short on me. And some jumpsuits end up making you look like you have a very saggy butt. No thank you.)
I spotted this jumpsuit while I was searching for an outfit for a separate sponsored post. I added it to my cart on a whim and it might be one of my favorite purchases of the summer! It’s so different from what I’d usually gravitate towards, but somehow still feels very much “me.” I packed it for our Nantucket trip and wore it for one of our dinner’s out.
The straps are adjustable (so it doesn’t matter if you have a long/short/proportional torso) and the belt at the waist gives it a customizable fit. I would say that it fits pretty true to size, but if you have curvier hips or a larger butt, go up a size.
And I know I’m going to get questions about bras. If you’ve been reading for a while, I’m pretty anti-bra. I hate ’em and if I can get away without one, I will. Here I’m just wearing little petals.
