There is one thing I love without a doubt: a jumpsuit. I can’t deny it. I may still be wearing them as a grandmama with a sagging bum and all. It’s just the way it is, because…me & them. I’ve been wearing jumpsuits since high school, through college, early married life and now kids. We have a long history together.
I’ve been appreciating them even more now as a mama, because they’re simple. They take away the need to pair a shirt with bottoms, so HEY. Cool! One less thing to think about. Also, with Fall not being exactly sooo Fall-ish around here (yes, I have boo-hooed about this before…), this kind of easy, comfortable outfit serves an incredibly noble purpose: it tricks my originally Northern self into feeling like I’m totally taking advantage of Fall style, without me having to sweat my derriere off.
All hail the jumpsuit.
Another thing I like…a lot…is a light jacket. It brings an element of cool to an outfit…and come on…layering is just FUN. It’s still a bit too warm/hot here to really wear it (unless I’m inside), but I don’t care. I bring it along anyways, just in case it gets ever so slightly cooler. What’s that? Did it just dip to the low 80’s? Jacket on. I’ll be doing Fall right, South Carolina. I don’t care what you say!
Now, it’s up to you if you’d like to try styling your jumpsuit with a boring, nude nursing bra. I especially like mine peeking out around my underarms, ever so slightly. Sex appeal. How I do.
earrings – Nickel & Suede. Size M. The color I’m wearing doesn’t appear to be available right now. However, I’d wear the Olive Suede Earrings or the Signature Silver Leather Earrings with this outfit. Ya’ll, these are amazing earrings. I barely noticed that I was wearing them, but I felt so pretty with them on! They are worth it. I now have four pairs, soo…more Fall outfits inspired by N + S coming soon.

romper – Michael’s Stars Tank Jumpsuit– awesome. I ordered it in my usual size (Small) and it fits great. I would say, if you’re tall and don’t like the crop look…maybe a bit too short for you. I like it though…even being on the tall side.
jacket – Treasure & Bond, no longer available. This KUT from the Kloth denim jacket looks very similar. It may fit a bit smaller though, so I’d order a size up.
booties – DV, from last year. Their new ‘Gracie’ wedge bootie looks almost identical. The only difference, that I can see, is the top…it curves down a bit in the back, where mine is straight across. I really love mine. They have a substantial heel, but I never feel like I’m going to topple over wearing them…and have never once gotten a blister.
bag – Big Budda, from two years ago. I just found Sole Society’s ‘Camilla’ cross body. It’s very Rebecca Minkoff-esque, yeh? The price, too. Can’t beat it. Also, the name…HELLO. Amazing name. haha.
By the way, I didn’t love the shades I wore with all of this. I just grabbed them on the way out of the house, because the round, awesome ones I just bought a couple of months ago died. They got smashed by a hulk baby. Yeh, so that’s why I only buy cheap sunglasses.
Cheers to proper Fall weather for you!
