If someone would have told me I would have a cropped jumpsuit a year ago I probably would say they were crazy. Although I dabble in trends, I rarely go for ones that are extreme. This chambray cropped jumpsuit however was a piece I was strangely attracted to.
I first showed this exact jumpsuit at the end of my Spring 2016 Trend: Lightweight Denim post and wanted to try it ever since. Then I got a chance to try it on during my last vacation in April and previewed it in my Plus Size Try On Haul video on YouTube. And let me tell you, I love this jumper!
Being short in stature, I was not wanting my legs to look like little stubs so I opted for a heeled bootie. I think as far as this jumpsuit is concerned, I will always wear some kind of heel with it. Perhaps it is the comfort of the wide leg, or perhaps it is the shear “you really shouldn’t be wearing that” factor that makes me like this piece so much.
What I love the most about this is that it is a blank canvas for any of my statement necklaces, scarves, or printed jackets/cardigans. This time around I layered it with a watercolor geometric print scarf with tassels that I previewed in my Jewelry & Accessories Haul video. I have worn it several times, but have never shown it on the blog. And speaking of scarves, are you wearing yours? This is the perfect time to remind you of the DFMC Scarf Challenge that I announced in my How to Wear a Scarf post.
So I am ready for my happy dance moment here in my cropped jumpsuit. This guy is going to be worn so many times this spring and summer.
