When I first tried the cropped jumpsuit style on I LOVED IT, but thought it was definitely one of those that could only be worn with heels…and that made me second guess whether I should even bother buying one. Ya know what I mean? You love how awesome something looks on in the dressing room, but then it dawns on you that it doesn’t make sense out in your real life. Yehhh. The frequency with which I wear heels is ummm…not very frequently. At least, not during the week when I’m running around.
I did end up bringing one home, though. I was still skeptical and kept it in the shopping bag with the receipt for probably a week…until I finally got around to giving it another go. This time I threw my white sneakers on, as a kind of last ditch effort to justify keeping it…and okay, HELLO. I see you! The cropped jumpsuit instantly became more wearable for everyday with the kids. I hung that baby right up in my closet, all ready to be worn and enjoyed now through the Fall…and I’ve already worn it a handful of times.
YESSSSS. *high fives*
jumpsuit: BP. Stripe Wide Leg Jumpsuit – sold out. I swear it was just in stock. grrrrr. I looked around and found some other similar styles that can also be worn with sneakers, booties or hey…the ultra trendy slip-on mule.
Check-out that first one. Very similar to my own…
shades: BP. 55mm Round Sunglasses – favorite pair of sunglasses. I have them in this color and black.
Look at these sneaks…
That Ash brand! Really cool styles that are considerably cheaper than Golden Goose. I’m intrigued.
necklace: ‘Carrie’ necklace – the only necklace I wear on a regular basis.
bag: Rebecca Minkoff Julian, navy – it’s no secret how much we love this backpack around here
Cropped Jumpsuit Styled for Fall
I wanted to see if a cropped jumpsuit can work with a layer and booties (because a transitional piece is even more worth spending money on)…and YEP. It works for me!
jumpsuit: BP. Stripe Wide Leg Jumpsuit – Again, currently sold out but I’ll keep you guys posted on any restock. See similar options I also love right here:
sweater: BP. Lightweight Rib Stitch Cardigan – the ultimate Fall basic to have…can throw it over anything.
shoes: Lucky Brand Kaiya Pointy Toe Bootie (TTS, Grey Nubuck color) – I dig the almost western vibe of these…and I’ll be wearing with the jumpsuit, shorts, dresses and jeans.
So…does anyone else know where Summer went?
