Finally Found: Jumpsuit for Pearshaped Women

A jumpsuit is one of those items I always envied on other women. Tall, thin women being able to pull off these adorable silk onesies with their sky high heels and no worries of rippling thigh issues underneath (harsh pearshape reality, yall). But about a week ago I was determined to find a jumpsuit that would fit me, and look flattering. I scoured ASOS to no avail, Nordstrom, etc., only finding options in silk that would surely not fit my thigh area, or would emphasize areas I didn’t necessarily wan’t emphasized with their slight sheen.

I stumbled across this jersey jumpsuit at Macy’s for $35 after discount, and pounced. Yes, it was jersey (not ideal) but I didn’t know what other fabric other than an uncomfortable poly-blend would look better, so I bought it. To my pleasure and surprise, it looks amazing and I feel so wonderful in it. For reference, I’m wearing a size XL and probably could have gotten away with a L but ordered big for safety.

I styled it here with a leather jacket which is how I plan to wear it most often in colder months, and with a different belt as the tie belt it comes with is removable. In reference to the garment itself, it is a wide-leg jumpsuit with a faux wrap top and snap closure at the bust for added discretion.

The suit does have pockets which create a bit of rippling, but I am thinking of getting them removed and/or sewn shut. I love that the jumpsuit has a full back and covered shoulders so us fuller-busted ladies are free to wear a supportive bra. And likewise, appreciate the higher waist for an even more flattering silhouette.

After seeing these pictures i’m more assured that next time I wear it I will slip on my SPANX Assets underneath just for some more support under the jersey fabric, but other than that, i’m so in love with this unique piece!

Crochet Hat and Column Maxi

Sole Society hat, Prada sunglasses, Gap dress (similar in pattern from Target), Seychelles sandals (this season’s)

San Francisco has been having some weird weather. It isn’t quite warm anymore but rather mid-60’s and sunny, still requiring some coverage. To deal with this i’ve been living in my maxi dresses. This old one from Gap is a long time favorite for it’s comfort and ease. Topped with this fun crochet hat and silver-toned accessories, it proved to be a great, casual outfit.

The Things I Actually Bought During the ShopBop Sale

ShopBop Fall Picks

Theory Innis Sweater  // James Jeans Hunter High Rise Straight Leg // Tibi A Line Blouse

So you know this ShopBop sale that’s happening? Well, clearly I have an issue because I can’t resist a good sale. And rather than giving you a laundry list of things i’d want to buy, I figured I would show you the stuff I actually bought. Cuz, you know, that’s helpful. Here are the basics I scooped up: a cream sweater, high rise straight leg jeans (skinnies are bugging me right now), and a black a-line shirt in silk (because if you can imagine it, I didn’t own a black shirt).

Fancy on Top, Casual on Bottom

Vintage blouse (similar), Sweet & Spark necklace, Prada sunglasses, J.Crew pixie pant (clearly a recent obsession), Hunter “Huntress” boots

One of my favorite ways to dress on a more casual day is to mix fancy and relaxed. I pair a silk blouse or nice sweater with pixie pants or stretch jeans and comfy boots. It creates some really interesting contrast and an unexpected twist. On this particular day I opted for my pixie pants (yes, I love them), and my comfy Hunter boots for ultimate comfort.

One thing that I make sure to do when opting for this mixed style is keep my hair and makeup put together. Looking more relaxed on the bottom doesn’t excuse true grunge!
