I'm sorry about the inconsistent blogging but my life has been super crazy as of late! I recently got a new job! I'm super excited and start in early September. I will be working on some Affordable Care Act stuff with a major hospital system in the Greater Boston area. It's a welcomed change from what I'm doing now which is more policy-based. Also, my son is starting Kindergarten in the Fall and I am freaking out! He doesn't do well in large group settings and he has been placed in a classroom with about 23+ kids. I've already had several meetings to devise his Individual Educational Plan and am not really pleased with the recommendations the school system has made with regards to his plan. I can't help but think about the parents who do not know how to navigate the system and are essentially forced to go along with a plan that may not be right for their child. That won't be me though. The entire school system will know who I am when all is said and done!
So what inspired this outfit was the lack of clothing options. Our washing machine is broken and I've been forced to seriously dig through my closet for practical pieces. We are getting a new washing machine in a couple days but it's Lord-of-the-Flies-type chaos in my house right now! I purchased this jumpsuit from Macy's over a year ago and could never figure out how to wear it since to me, it looked plain. After much rifling through my stuff, I decided to throw on a bright pink sash I got from Marshall's. The material of the jumpsuit is very clingy and has a slight sheen to it. Shiny fabrics seem to accentuate everything so admittedly, I was a bit wary to put it on.
Here is the jumpsuit on a model:
Here it is on me:
Jumpsuit: Macy's (sold out)
Sash (originally a scarf): Marshall's
Shoes: Old Navy
Bug necklace: ASOS
Turqoise necklace: Urban Outfitters
Zig Zag Cuff: ASOS
Lippy: Dear Diary by MAC
If I had a do-over, I'd probably wear heels instead of flats (my flats are looking a bit worn...womp, womp) and would have added a clutch. I love the fact this jumpsuit has pockets! I also appreciate the tapered leg because in my opinion, wide leg jumpsuits do not look as sleek and sexy.
And to close, I'm including a pic of Jessie from Toy Story because my daughter Ava sked me to! ;-)
