Summer Stripes

If you slide open my closet door, one would instantly be able to tell my obsession with jumpsuits has spiraled out of control (if it wasn’t clear on my Instagram too).  Jumpsuits are my summer go-to and I have a feeling that because of the long pants, they will be transitioned into the autumn months with a light sweater or jacket.  Not so surprisingly, today’s post is all about my current favorite jumpsuit that recently was added to my collection, so keep on scrolling to see how I style yet another jumpsuit.

If there is one store that feeds my jumpsuit obsession and in general my clothing obsession it’s Marshalls. You can find everything and anything in that store.  On my recent trip to Marshalls I somehow stumbled into the junior’s section and my eyes were immediately drawn to this striped pattern jumpsuit.  It’s crazy to think that I am starting to have more striped pattern clothing in my closet than I do floral pattern items.  I think the key to wearing stripes, well at least for me, is finding a dress, shirt, pants, or in this case a jumpsuit with a mix of different sized stripes.  The mix of larger, smaller, thicker, and thinner stripes make this jumpsuit super flattering, as well as the different shades of blue and brown.


This jumpsuit has a few hidden details like the deep neckline, the belt around the waist, and this super high slit on the leg.  Usually most jumpsuits are long enough not to show one’s selection of shoes, with the slit it allows your shoes to peek through, so of course I am wearing my new black wedges with this gorgeous gold buckle detail, also from Marshalls.  I love how this jumpsuit features blue and brown colors because you can really accessorize with either gold or silver, which brings me to my next point…jewelry.

Today’s look made me realize I really should start wearing more bracelets because my arms are looking a bit bare, but oh well, I’d rather wear more necklaces than bracelets.  Since this outfit features a low neckline, I wanted to wear a choker (obviously) but also a longer necklace.  I settled on this simple black cord choker from Forever 21, and then this silver gemstone double necklace also from Forever 21.  Who cares if it looks like I am wearing 3 necklaces, my motto is when you can’t decide on one, you might as well wear them all.

That’s a wrap on yet another style post.  Next post won’t be featuring a jumpsuit, well I can’t make any promises, you would understand if you saw my closet.  If you are like me who can’t get enough of jumpsuits, check out another one of my style posts here.  Keep the conversation going in the comments below by telling me what has been your must-have/go-to item this summer. Talk soon!

Jump (suit) Into The Week

All week I spend the days eagerly waiting for the weekend and when the weekend finally arrives, I blink and then it’s Monday again.  Anyone else feel the same way?  Well I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, I know I did by exploring Central Park and visiting new, trendy restaurants in the West Village and Soho with friends.

Ever since moving to the city, I feel like I have to be stylish 24/7 and even when I do “dress up” I’m always envious of everyone’s outfits in the city. Although, I don’t feel nearly as fashionable as everyone else in the city, whenever I am looking to amp up my fashion game, I’ve been wearing this stylish one piece featured in today’s style post on repeat.  Keep on scrolling to read all about my love for jumpsuits this summer.

So for those living under a fashion rock, a jumpsuit is pretty much a romper, but instead of shorts like a romper, a jumpsuit features pants, so basically it’s just a connecting, coordinating pant suit.  These matching one pieces are the best because you don’t have to worry about matching two pieces of clothing. I’m still in shock that my jumpsuit is from Target because it certainly looks like it’s made by a more high end brand, especially because it features a beautiful, bold floral pattern, an open back, a deep V neckline, and a fun tassel detail.  Also, as I continue to expand my jumpsuit collection, I always look for jumpsuits with a sort of cinch in waist to give it more shape and break up any bold pattern.

As I mentioned above, this jumpsuit has sort of a low neckline, so I wanted to wear a statement necklace, so my neck didn’t look so bare.  I decided on my mixed metal, spiked, short necklace from the brand Design Lab.  Since my jumpsuit is head to toe flowers, I wanted to add some edge to this look and that’s why I chose spikes.

Now that the weather is finally starting to feel like summer, I’ve abandoned long sleeve sweaters and shirts, and so now that my arms and wrists are exposed, I chose to wear a bunch of my favorite gold bangles from Forever 21 and of course my customized charm bracelet by Cosa™. Read more about my love for my Cosa™ cuff here.

For shoes, I like to wear a little heel with a jumpsuit for some extra height, so I settled on my black wedge sandals from Payless.

Lastly, to add a little extra dose of chicness to my look, I am wearing my London Fog circular sunglasses.

Well that’s all for today’s style post, folks! I hope everyone has a great start to their week. Talk to you all in my next post!
