We have had some extra warm weather as of late, and i love to see the sun out! It really affects my mood, and feels quite good on my muscles. Have you been shopping for summer? I had this floral jumpsuit from Zara for about 6 months, as I bought it doing a rare Zara sale for a whopping $25 last year. ! I had been watching it for quite a while, but never clicked on buy. Finally, with nothing left but a few smalls, and at that price, I bought it and have been waiting to wear it with excitement!
If you’re interested, dear readers, there is a SALE going on right now at Zara. I have purchased a few dresses and a blouse for a steal.
Jumpsuits have been more popular in the fashion scene over the past several years. I own but only one more, in black, and do enjoy the style as it makes dressing very easy! I wanted to wear this before it got too warm here in Charlotte. Another blogger, Cherie, of Style Nudge, has the same jumpsuit and when I saw how beautiful it was on her, it solidified my decision!
I have also worn a shorts romper in this post, Wearing a Romper Over 40, which I will style later in the summer as well.
This jumpsuit, with the steel-blue color with touches of tan, yellow gold, red and green were so eye-catching, i actually missed getting the top with the same print. Nevertheless, I thought to take it out now, and style it with my Andre Assous gold adorned espadrilles.
Since I am tall, 5 foot 9, that is where my apprehension for jumpsuits came in. I needed a jumpsuit long enough because, let’s face it, no one wants a wedgie! You know the feeling, if the length on a jumpsuit is too short, you get the feeling of those undies riding up!
The shorter wide leg style suited me, as i wasn’t then worried about the length being too short. I added my neutral necklace for some sparkle, and my vintage earrings in sea green, amongst my favorites bought at a thrift store in Charleston. The white bag provided a clean, fresh summery look without the need for more color.
The humidity was very high that day, as you can tell by my hair! That is always the tricky part in the summer with blogging. I think that is why I am going with ponytails, buns and chignons. If you have long hair, do you wear it up mostly in the summertime?
The one thing I do love about jumpsuits is the one and done factor, much like a dress. We all know the trials and tribulations and being that I have the bladder of a small infant, I just have to “go with the flow”…. ( sorry, pun intended!)

Are you a jumpsuit fan? What style of jumpsuit do you prefer ( wide leg, tapered, shorts/jumper, straight leg, cropped)?
