rompers + jumpsuits for every occasion

** UPDATED FOR FALL **

I have an aggressive obsession of rompers and jumpsuits.

I love, love, love being able to have my outfit be one-piece, but also enjoy the beauty of being able to sit-down, cross my legs, walk in the wind, etc., without the fear of my seamless panties making their international debut. I also have a weird thing about dresses + kind of hate wearing them, but I still love something that's one-piece. 

If you don’t understand this feeling, idk what to tell you, but you probs shouldn’t continue reading.

BUT if you’re still here, hi.

I’m glad we’re on the same page. I have really long legs + a short torso, and so traditionally, I hated jumpsuits + rompers because they were always, like, synched at the waist in a super weird way and grrrr. Recently, though, brands have started shifting towards more structured looks that are straight through the torso + give little petite — but long-legged — girls in this world hope. 

WHICH IS WHY I’M WRITING TODAY.

My obsession is strong, so, so, very strong. I really believe that there is a jumpsuit + romper out there for EVERYONE and for every single occasion. You can dress is up for a wedding or a club. Add a blazer to a jumpsuit and BAM, work wear. Slap some fuckin' plastic gems to your face, braid you hair + WHAM-O, festival look. Like, do you see what I mean? They're so versatile + I literally spend an embarrassing amount of time bookmarking all of them that I want. #TheStruggle

SO, I’ve compiled a HUGE collection of jumpsuits + rompers that you can wear for literally ANY occasion. They’re all affordable,all amazing + I can bet you anything that I will be doing a "I wore a jumpsuit/romper everyday for a month" post ASAP. But, honestly, though.

Oh, and btw: The romper I'm wearing in this post was from OLD NAVY. I'm wearing an XS + it's like $17 right now

Off-the-shoulder + one-shoulder

Shop ALLLLL the rompers + jumsuits

I'm all about that functional, chic + easy style. I hate feeling cramped, squeezed or {the worst} boxy. I select pieces that are versatile + I stick to a pretty neutral palette.

So on Saturday, I did the same when I found myself walking PAST the new H Street Whole Foods and into The Apollo. There, custom-skirt brand, Zophia, held a fashion show for Betsy Cohen's latest line of CEO skirts. Oh, and it was called Power To The She, where all of the proceeds benefitted Mission: Launch, Inc., which is great.

Style-wise, I felt the need to have a business casual vibe to my outfit, without coming off overly corporate. 

{Mission: Launch is a non-profit started in DC with the mission of help women re-entering the real world after being in prison. They're seriously an INCREDIBLE program + I urge you to take two mins to go read about them here.}

I paired my favorite, favorite workwear shirt {note the subtle bell sleeves} with black pants that had the most subtle alligator skin look/feel to them. Honestly, I need to go shoe shopping, so I just threw on an old pair of block heels and headed out the door. Naturally. 

Accessories-wise, I wore a maroon choker {tied the back of my neck for a more minimal look} + added gold hardware. I loved trying out my #DWPetite watch, too. I've never been a fan of the mesh watch strap, but lately it's fit into my more polished style a lot. 

And the sunnies? Well, I kind of totally skimped on my eye makeup, so it was an easy work around. Psst: it didn't hurt, either, to have some boss ladies by my side.

Weekends are my time to catch up on emails, dive into my blog and run  a l l  the errands. Whether I'm dropping my the Smithsonian's to see a new exhibit or having a coffee date with friends, I always make sure that I'm in an outfit that balances my fave street styles + comfort. Plus, my wardrobe is like 90% neutrals, so I usually stick to black jeans, black block heel booties + a top. Other weekend essentials? My popsocket, a simple choker, coffee + a good lippy (fave lately? this one from e.l.f.
