We’ve updated this post for 2019.
Who is crazy for fall but still living in summer temperatures? One of the things I find a challenge, but also love about visiting Colombia, is that I have to get creative with what I pack. A lot of what I pack needs to work for both warm and cold weather because we go from Bogota (cold) to other parts of the country that are warm. While I did choose very specific things to wear in Cartagena because it was like a honeymoon for us, there were other things that I brought for double duty.
Enter this jersey wrap jumpsuit. I decided to upgrade my favorite inexpensive ASOS standard to this one that has more coverage, is higher quality and can work easily for colder weather. Bonus points — it’s nursing-friendly, and you all know I’m still nursing my toddler. The fabric is so soft and it’s sooo comfortable. I kept telling my sister that it was like wearing pjs but not looking like it.
Important for mamas with soft lower bellies like me: I wear these lightweight shorts under. They are high-rise and smooth the belly out. Why shorts? I don’t like the panty lines I get with briefs. I also don’t like to wear thongs with loose soft pants. So I usually wear these shorts under jumpsuits, loose pants and dresses.
How To Wear A Black Jumpsuit Right Now…
I love black, but lately, I’ve been walking away from wearing just black. So I’ve been adding some color to my outfits through scarves, earrings and sometimes shoes. My color of choice lately is yellow-gold. I believe a little bit of color adds a nice touch and allows someone’s personality to shine through an outfit.
Wear A Black Jumpsuit Later…
I styled this knit black for Bogota’s 60-something degrees with a denim jacket, the same belt and block-heeled ankle boots. The hem cuffs make it easy to wear ankle boots with a high-shaft. I honestly think it has way more styling options for cold weather than for warmer weather. I can imagine it with a leather jacket, even a trench coat. How about a thin turtleneck under it?

Shop More Comfortable Jumpsuits
The same brand has other color and styles, the quality and feel is amazing. What I love the most about them is that they also offer everything in plus sizes. Check them out. I added some other pics from other brands, but they all have comfort, jersey fabric and pockets in common! Everything is better with pockets right?
Hoping for cooler temperatures soon! Not too cool though! How about you?
