A Jumpsuit to Suit Me

I never thought it would happen! Me, in a jumpsuit or a romper? Never! You see, I was very skeptical of the whole jumpsuit and romper trend that took the fashion world by storm this summer.  First, I didn't think they quite fit my style. Second, there's the whole issue about the inconvenience it might cause going to the bathroom! But I was wrong and this jumpsuit from Old Navy was what altered my thoughts about this trend!

It all started a couple months ago when I saw this jumpsuit on the Old Navy website. What I was drawn to was the floral print and the fabric, which is a fairly thick linen and cotton blend. I remember wishing it was a dress and not a jumpsuit but after seeing it featured on a few blogs, I started to think it was kind of cute. Well, I didn't pull the trigger to purchase it, as I just couldn't wrap my head around the idea of me in a jumpsuit. Then, last week while perusing the clearance section at Old Navy, lo and behold there was my jumpsuit! I tried it on and it fit perfectly, although there was no price tag on it. When I took it up to the register, it rang up at only $11, so I knew it was fate! While this piece is no longer available, I have linked to some other jumpsuits below that I wouldn't mind trying now that I have gotten over my jumpsuit fears!

So now that I am a jumpsuit convert, let me share a few things with you about them. First, maybe it's just this particular jumpsuit, but they are so comfy! I could truly wear this all day long, as it feels like pajamas! Also, it is very cool for the hot summer days in Los Angeles. Second, I wore this to a family get together and if you know anything about my husband's family, they (mainly my husband and father in law) like to joke about what I wear. Surprisingly, however, everyone loved this jumpsuit and I even received multiple compliments! So all around it was a big hit. Now I just have to talk my husband into getting a romp-him so we can match, although I'm sure the chances of this happening are zero!

  2. That's a beautiful jumpsuit, Katie! You look fabulous! And I love the way you styled it! The shoes, bag & necklace are perfect with it!

    Have a great week!

  4. It's so cute! I just adore the print and those yellow heels are the cutest with it! Romper or jumpsuit it all works for me!

  5. This is such a different look for you but it works fabulously! I didn't think I was a fan of rompers, but I have rapidly re-assessed as a result of your post. Such lovely colours too!

  6. I am loving the pop of contrast yellow. Perfect location too!

  7. YES!! I love you in a jumpsuit! Such a great look on you. Love your bright green bag too!
