I just finished the first full day of distance learning with my second grader…
…moment of silence…
OK, I’m slightly better. Now, I’m on my patio, and I can feel that late summer breeze. For the very first time in my life, I’m not ready for the cold. The falling rate of cases in NY and the outdoors have given us some sense of normalcy. Even with distance learning, my kids are out playing with our neighbors. I wonder how long that’ll last.
2 Comfy Jumpsuits To Dress Up Or Down
At this time of year, I’m usually craving sweaters, jackets, jeans. Not this year though. All I’m thinking about is comfy pieces that I can wear now and later at home. Comfortable jumpsuits have always been that for me; you can see how they were all I wore in early quarantine in this silly video I made earlier this year.
This Loveapella jersey wrap jumpsuit has been in rotation for years. I first posted about it two years ago. It’s soft, comfy, doesn’t wrinkle, has pockets, the V-neck is not plunging, and is very easy to take off for restroom trips. As for color options, you can choose green, navy, or black, and it also comes in plus-size.
I love wearing it to work from home, help kids with school, and be ready to run some errands looking good. I like to layer a lightweight jacket on top for this time of year and add a chic bag for necessities.
The lightweight fabric of this jumpsuit can show some bumps and lumps. My thighs are the area where I have them the most, and for that, I’m wearing these smoothing shorts — my new closet staple. You can wear Spanx shorts if you want body shaping; I sometimes do. But here I’m going for very light control while avoiding panty lines. Hate those!
I wasn’t looking for this jumpsuit; this jumpsuit was looking for me, haha. It got inside my shopping bag while picking up the light tan jacket above. I couldn’t say no.
“I feel like very ladylike,” I said to my husband while wearing this jumpsuit. It’s not a lie that I look young (I’m often mistaken as my kid’s babysitter) especially when I’m wearing distressed jeans and a tee. Well, this gives me the serious stylish mom vibe, and I’m here for it.
I wore it for dinner with the family and then a quick get together with friends — felt terrific the whole time. The tie belt, pockets, wide leg, and easy length make it something easy to dress up or down with just a change of shoes.
Wide-Leg Jumpsuit With Sandals vs. Mules
Sandals, mules, heels, boots. I’m imagining it with high shaft booties and a leather jacket now. The only downside is restroom trips with the back zipper. A price I’ll happily pay to look and feel like a million bucks.
You may ask, why green? If you read my last post with the coral dress, you know I like color, but I also like neutrals and avoiding black as much as possible. Olive or military green are my favorite casual neutrals for my warmer skin. It’s a replacement for grey that doesn’t do anything for my complexion.
The color difference between these two jumpsuits is that the Loveapella wrap jumpsuit is a warmer green (slightly warmer than the pictures), while the Chelsea28 has a hint of grey, making it more universally flattering.
