jumpsuit lovin'

and just like that, the work week is more than half 
over! you won't hear this girl complaining, as i am 
(already) eager to catch up on sleep, grab coffee with 
a girlfriend, and of course, work on content for le blog ;)

i feel incredibly grateful to have spent memorial day
weekend in palm springs, california. i soaked up my share
of sunshine, and the average daily temperature was 
105 degrees; staying in (or as close to) the pool as 
possible was seemingly essential, as were 
sunglasses and an oversized hat!

my friends and i stayed just outside the city
in palm desert, and if you follow along on instagram, 
you likely saw the palm trees, gorgeous sunshine and 
desert backdrop, and some of the delicious seafood, sandwiches, and
 blueberry lemonade(s) i consumed. my work clothes feels rather 
tight upon returning, but i wouldn't trade our time there
(or the extra calories consumed) for anything!
 disclosure: today i'm partnering with endless knot, a local seattle 
boutique. they graciously lent me the jumpsuit and sunglasses pictured here.

wearing my summer shorts, dresses, and hat
last weekend was a bit of a tease, especially when arriving
home -- it is more than 30 degrees cooler in seattle. while i
miss the sunshine, i am now more excited than ever for summer!

i have always enjoyed wearing (short) rompers, as they
are a fun, effortless summer option. no need to plan out
a top, bottom, and accessory, as you have a complete outfit 
with just one item. summer is all about feeling comfortable,
while looking trendy, and a romper is the perfect solution.

jumpsuit and sunglasses: c/o endless knot
blazer: thrifted (via seattle goodwill), wedges: tj maxx, 
purse: stitch fix, ring: forever 21

this flared jumpsuit is making my 'hippie chic' 
dreams come true! the vibrant print, bright colors, and 
wide leg-style reminds me of 70s fashion that has
been prominent for spring of 2016 and 2017.

 the jumpsuit is sleeveless, with a
zipper down the side (making it easy to pull on and off --
which can be problematic with some romper and jumpsuit options). 
i tried on several jackets and cardigans, but preferred to
dress up this look with a newly thrifted chambray blazer. 
the length is a bit on the long side, but paired with
open-toed, platform wedges, the length was just right!

swap the blazer for a more casual denim vest or 
jacket, and the jumpsuit can transition from day to night.
i love fun, yet versatile clothing items that can be
worn on a variety of occasions.

are you a fan of rompers and/or jumpsuits?
where have you found one that fits well?
xoxo.
