Jumpsuits are everywhere this summer season! I have always been afraid of trying to wear a jumpsuit. I am only 5’4″ which is on the cusp of being petite. This puts me in a position where I often find petite clothing does not fit, yet regular sized clothing is too large for my short frame. When it comes to a jumpsuit, this poses a problem since petite jumpsuits do not offer enough room in the torso, and regular sized jumpsuits are too long.
I keep seeing people wearing jumpsuits; and they look so cute! This inspired me to just bite the bullet and try to make a regular sized jumpsuit work; after all, you can alter something too large, but you cannot add to something which is too short.
This floral jumpsuit for summer caught my eye; plus the price was right. I took a chance and ordered it online. Of course when it arrived, I noticed it was too long. This was an easy fix. I could either shorten it, or I could be lazy and wear it with platform espadrilles; I chose the latter.
Since I am long-waisted, and typically wear regular sizes on top, and petite on the bottom, this worked out perfectly for the jumpsuit. Apparently I CAN wear a regular size jumpsuit due to my long waist! Yay! The jersey fabric turned out to be extremely comfortable and easy to wear.
As you can tell, I am at the beach! We snapped these photos after dinner during our recent trip to Los Angeles. We enjoyed a yummy Italian dinner at Mangiamo’s in Manhattan Beach. The wind was blowing extremely hard; and it started to get a little bit chilly after dinner. Despite the cool, windy weather, my ten-year-old daughter snapped these photos for me on the beach. The lighting wasn’t optimal, but she did a great job!
If you are looking for a comfortable jumpsuit which is easy to pack in a suitcase, and stays wrinkle-free, this jumpsuit is perfect! The price is right too.
What do you think of the current jumpsuit trend? Will you be jumping on it this season?
Stay tuned! I have a recap post coming up next week which details our recent road trip to Los Angeles, and all the fun things we saw, and did!
Thanks for stopping by!
