Firstly I would like to apologize for being MIA for so long. I was having a very good time chilling at Disneyland and post that I caught a bug so now am still recovering from sickness. But I miss blogging a lot so here today while having Coffee I just couldn’t resist and had to switch on my laptop and start writing.
I am a dress person, be it a short,midi or maxi the first clothing choice that comes to my mind while going out is a dress. I am very comfortable wearing dresses and comfort is the first thing I look for while dressing up. But this summer when I had a travelling plan which included going to 2 adventure parks I hit a bit of snag. My sister immediately packed her Jeans and T shirts for those 3 days as that’s her to go outfit. I pondered a lot and decided that I wanna experiment outside the range of jeans and shorts this time so while out for shopping I picked one jumpsuit and a play suit.
At first I was skeptical about wearing one because I am more on the line of Audrey style dresses so wasn’t sure if I would be able to carry it and also be comfortable at the same time. But to my surprise on a scale of 1-10 my comfort level was 11 and my Style Meter was 12. Also no matter what size you are it simply looks killer on you.
Now to the point as to why they are our best friend’s and most to go outfits. I am a nature person and also I like to take a lot of breaks while walking which means that I can feel like lying on the grass or sitting on the pavement at any point of time and this time I didn’t even have to take care of fluttering or pulling down.
Second are those rides in adventure parks where they make you go full 360 degrees on a roller-coaster, in that moment I wanted to experience the sheer thrill and the adrenaline coursing through my body than worrying about any wardrobe malfunction.
Thirdly it solved my question of what to wear on a surprise date. My boyfriend being the sporty type has a lot of adventure dates on his mind. As I remember my first surprise date was an utter fiasco as I turned up wearing a dress thinking it’s a candle light dinner which turned out to be para-sailing. On my second date which was surprise too I wore a jeans and a casual t shirt to be safe but ended up looking oh so very casual,so instead of enjoying the hike I was too perplexed about my appearance. Now I can look good and also be sporty and ready for all those surprises with a huge smile on my face.
Jumpsuits and Play-suits are trendsetting too. Personally I like to set my own trends but for those who are very cautious and like to wear something which is worn by the population this covers your problem too.
Now to answering the myth. Jumpsuits don’t look feminine. This is the most absurd thing I have ever heard. All the jumpsuits which I have seen are in patterns which have flowers, mesh, net and embroidery which when I last checked were still in the feminine category. My style is very feminine and personally I feel jumpsuits are a mixture of feminine style + rebellious fashion and that is why I fell in love with them instantly (I love Rebel 😛 ) . So all my rebellious girlies out there this is the best for you.
A friend of mine very recently asked me how to style your jumpsuit? Is there any specific footwear or accessory which goes best with it? For that I will say what I always advice people on style, accessorize your look with whatever you feel comfortable in. Because maybe what I have worn might seem hideous to you. Always style yourself according to your likes and not according to what the world wants to see you as. Be Original and comfortable and people will actually start following you and copying your looks.
I am going to put up two pictures one in a Jumpsuit and one in a Play-Suit for reference.
So I paired my Floral Play-suit with Checkered Slip-on’s,sling bag, heart shaped sunglasses and an animal print hair band.
You can go for stilettos or wedges as your footwear, I chose slip-on’s as there was a lot walking for me that day.
A tote or a hobo will look great with a play-suit but I chose a sling since I wanted to carry less weight but hey all my essentials( sunglasses,lipstick,compact,wet tissues,passport,hair brush and wallet) were well accommodated in it, so that was great too.
One little tip I would like to give about Sunglasses is that no matter which outfit you wear choose your eye-gear according to your face size. I wanted to add little spunk so I chose the heart shaped Sunglasses.
The belt is an add-on. Its from my another dress which I just experimented with and the look was Viola.
Lastly the hairband was an addition because of a really bad hair day plus experimentation of using two parallel prints at the same time i.e : Animal Print and Floral.
Black Jumpsuit with light net and embroidery
Not carrying a bag since it was not allowed in the adventure rides.
I am wearing black basic Hawaiian Sandals with Gold straps (Gold because they match with my sun glass stick) as they are among my most favorite to-go flats (yes I call them flats as I am more of a stiletto person) . Couldn’t wear slip-on’s as the height of the jumpsuit is little longer and I wouldn’t be able to walk freely.
I am obsessed with Oversize Sunglasses so I chose them but you can also wear Black Ray bans as the sex appeal would be the same in both.
The floral Hairband is to add a little feminine touch and summery feel. A low ponytail along with the hairband looks classy too.
I like to highlight only one feature for a normal day make-up and since I love dark lipsticks those get preference always . In all my pictures I am just wearing a compact (Mac Studio Fix NC 42) and Bobbi Brown Lip Colour ( Red 10 ).
I had so much fun writing and I hope you enjoy while reading it as well.
Sending loads of love and light.
Stay Blessed and Keep Shining!!!
