Que Bella: Jump!

Last Wednesday was our 15th Wedding Anniversary. Unfortunately, Husband had to leave for San Francisco early in the morning so we were unable to celebrate until he returned on Friday. We had dinner on the Riverwalk and went to see John Mulaney later that night. As soon as I tried on the Drapey Crepe Oxford Jumpsuit, I knew that I wanted to wear it for our night out.

It was pretty warm and humid that evening so the sleeveless worked well. I laughed so much in the theater that it kept me warm enough. The jumpsuit was long so I did a quick hem with double-sided Hollywood tape. I love the length and dropped it off at the tailor to get it properly hemmed. 

I chose the Shilling Bib Necklace, which I bought on a whim after seeing it styled in the store. The bracelets are the Sparrow Cuff and a C.Wonder initial cuff. The clutch is actually a wallet/cross-body from Tory Burch that I purchased during the SPRING event. The cross-body strap came in very handy when we were walking around downtown.

The shoes are Talbot’s from a few years ago. They were the worst to wear! The front of the criss-cross strap dug into the top of my toes causing blisters. Husband said the restaurant and theater were near each other when they were actually several blocks from each other. I’ll have to find another pair that are similar, since I really like them.

Despite the shoe issues, I really loved this outfit and the anniversary celebration was wonderful.

I came up with a few outfits, planned all via my Stylebook app. This first one is super casual with Gladiator Flats and a denim jacket. This is actually a great outfit for my trip next week to San Diego. Husband has a work trip and I’m tagging along. What should I do with my time during the day?

I knew I wanted to pair Leopard with this Jumpsuit as well and I already have the Lillian Wedge Sandal in Calf-Hair from J Crew. I love the turquoise-colored stone necklace to bring some unexpected color on top of the black. The Cross-body ties all the colors together.

Of course Espadrilles like the Sevilles from J Crew will work well too. I wore the Metallic Espadrilles in the fitting room and it worked. I think the Bright Citrus from last year will look great with the Jumpsuit too.

Any thoughts on how you would style the Drapey Crepe Oxford Jumpsuit? I’d love to hear them.

    That jumpsuit looks perfect on you and I love all your ideas for wearing it. Please share your fire pit too as I am considering building one at some point in time.

      Thanks Shopping Celle! I'll update soon with some fire pit photos.

    How was sizing? Not something I would normally select but it looks fab! Built a firepit 4 years ago (by hand and taking three months) but it's my favorite DIY project!

      I sized down for this jumpsuit. I thought I would take the same size as I do in pants, which is an 8 but I sized down to a size 6. I think because it's supposed to drape the extra fabric makes you have to size down.

    What size is your jumpsuit and what sizes do you typically wear? Your measurements or typical sizing for brands would help. TIA!

      Unknown…I reviewed it a few days before this post but I took a size 6 in the jumpsuit. I am a size 8/Medium in most everything I try one, especially J Crew. I really did think I would take that size in the jumpsuit. I tried one on that was similar at the Loft this weekend and also took a size 6. They are pretty roomy so sizing down is the best option.
