Why am I jumping for joy?
1) It’s the long holiday weekend 2) I love my new cropped jumpsuit. I haven’t worn something like this in years, and it sure does put a spring in my step!
I was looking around in Michael Kors the other day, and I came across this. It didn’t look like much on the rack, but I was curious to try it on.
Part of me was saying don’t bother because a wide-leg cropped jumpsuit is going to make me look frumpy. This gaucho style can be tricky to wear. But the sleek, minimalist style drew me in. Wow, was I surprised? It felt really different and new, instead of the same old, same old.
See that cute zipper on the shoulder. I love anything gold, and this sporty little detail did it for me! I decided to play that up with a pretty long gold necklace with a simplistic, modern vibe. You wouldn’t want anything too busy with such a sleek outfit.
The jumpsuit has a cute belt that comes with it. I thought it looked too dull worn the usual way, so I tied it like this. If you have a beautiful wide dressy belt, you could switch it out for an evening look, and it would be great.
How do you like my bag? I know, I know, Gucci… expensive, but now and then I treat myself to something I adore. My sister has this bag in that gorgeous bright pink color, and I fell in love with it. I don’t have a lot of things that go with bright pink, so I bought a red one.
There are two sizes, small and medium. I bought the medium. I am mad about red purses. I always have one in my wardrobe.
It’s a crossbody bag, just the right size, and what I love about it is that is both casual and dressy at the same time, so I’m sure to get a lot of use out of it. Scroll down and take a look at my shoes. They’re from last year- gold Michael Kors slingback sandals. They have a low vamp and no ankle strap, which helps elongate my legs. I tried on strappy sandals, and my legs seemed short and cut up.
Interesting note: When I bought this I was talking to the salesgirl, and she said she had a gal come in and buy it for a wedding. Never thought about something like this for a wedding but I can see how it could work. This one is quite elegant.
Also a few days after I bought this I happened to see it on another gal. I had to do a double-take because this gal was so petite, it was a full-length jumpsuit on her. So I guess depending on how long your legs are, and mine are pretty long, the look will vary.
I love this look. Just goes to show you, you have to try things on because you never know!
