Did we die and go to jumpsuit heaven? It sort of feels that way! If you’ve been in the mall lately then you’ve seen them: on the hangers, delicately draping down to the floor, seemingly saying “buy me.” Jumpsuits are the rage this year and I’m shouting “hallelujah!”
As a romper lover, it only makes complete sense, that I too, would favor the jumpsuit. Standing at only 5’2 I wasn’t positive I would be able to pull off the chic, effortless jumpsuit look. To my surprise, I fell in love with the look on me, which is always a plus.
I find that a wedge or block heel really enhances the look, and is perfect for a night out, a dinner, or even an upcoming bridal shower or bachelorette party. A simple sandal or flip flop can tone the outfit down for more of casual look. In the picture above, I paired a gap outlet jumpsuit, with Vince Camuto open-toed booties, for an evening out. Not only did the outfit give me height, it was also comfortable.
In the above photo, I paired a flow-y grey suit with block heel Rampage shoes for an evening dinner. The small heel kept the allure of the wide leg while adding a stylish finish.
I couldn't be happier with this popular and timeless trend. The more jumpsuits the better! Hopefully my bank account agrees!
Mum and I revisited Fort Myers Beach for our 2018 mother-daughter trip. Once again, we stayed at the Diamondhead resort, a beach front hotel with amazing views, a fantastic pool and outdoor bar, and a relaxing Spa.
One of my favorite pastimes-eating-was happily satisfied with the abundant restaurants and seafood eateries. My favorites were Doc Ford’s, Sanibel, Matanzas on the Bay, and Fresh Catch Bistro. We focused on healthy options as I am a bridesmaid in a June wedding, and didn’t want to gain any unneeded weight on my vacation. We split a shrimp cocktail every dinner, mostly said no to breads and wines (😩) and enjoyed fresh, grilled or broiled seafood with a double side of veggies.
We were sure to start every morning with a quick jog on the beach, and some strength training. By the end of the trip, my rompers were looser and I was tanner. Definitely a win! I couldn’t have asked for a better trip with the best gal, my mama!
Our little guy, Kobe, is no longer little! He’ll be one year in August and this pup is growing fast. We rescued Kobe from the SPCA in Delaware, and from the moment we laid eyes on him, this lab/pit/chow/bulldog/Brittany Spaniel mix (yes we did doggie DNA) stole our hearts.
Although this spring hasn’t been the warmest, we’ve been having all sorts of adventures with Kobe. From the Wissahickon trails to Kelly Drive and beyond. Enjoy Kobe, we’ll be here watching you grow, bubba!
