As we get closer to the beginning of the school year, it seems like summer is drifting away fast. I’m not ready for it to be over in many ways! Even though the temps will continue to climb in Texas until about October, and I’m way past my “back to school” days, I just stop being in the summer mood once school is back in session for everyone else. So, I’m going to soak up every last bit of summer, and the clothes that go along with it, until that day comes, and that means wearing white-on-white outfits like this non-stop.
White dresses like this Vineyard Vinesnumberare okay a little further into the fall, but these little sandals will be put away until Easter for me after September 4th (sometimes, you just have to follow the rules). A breezy white dress like this will be perfect for game day with some boots until it gets cooler, then I’ll be switching over to some outfits like this game day look. The neckline is one of my favorites of all time. Does anyone else find themselves grabbing for it on the reg? I love how elegant a little spaghetti strap feels over your collar-bone, and the little ties let you adjust it to your liking.
Happy Friday! I hope y’all are soaking up the end of summer and taking advantage of every second! I’m going to do some outdoor water activities this weekend in Austin that I haven’t done yet and I’m pumped! Has anyone heard of Common’s Ford?
It’s no secret that I love dresses. My closet is stocked full of dresses of every color, style, and length, and I wear them all the time. Why? Because they’re EASY. You have a single piece of clothing and *bam* you’ve got an outfit. All you need to add are the shoes and accessories to complete it, and that’s much easier than pairing a top and a bottom to go together.
Once I started experimenting more with jumpsuits and rompers, I realized that (duh) they’re just as easy to style as dresses. However, a wide leg jumpsuit can be a little trickier, so I came up with a few tips to help you style one perfectly every time.
#1 Pick Your Shoes Based on the Length
A wide leg jumpsuit like this one with a cropped length calls for heels, where one that’s floor length might be fine with flats. Even though jumpsuits usually make the legs seem longer, a cropped length can negate that, so heels will balance it back out. I also think that if the jumpsuit is floor length, you need to pick your shoes carefully so you don’t get the high water look.
#2 Choose Your Vibe
The great thing about jumpsuits is how versatile they can be. Any item of clothing that is tailored to your body (like a good jumpsuit should be) automatically makes you look polished and put together, so they’re easy to take from day to night. In my case for this outfit, all I have to do is lose the hat and I’m ready to go to dinner. So, chose the vibe you want to go for and accessorize it based on the occasion.
#3 Keep it Simple
Jumpsuits, as versatile and effortless as they can feel, can also often look overpowering. It’s important to pick just a few accessories carefully or you’ll risk look too busy (especially if it has a print like this one). Let the jumpsuit be the main event and don’t distract from its fabulousness with too many other things going on.
