How To Wear A Jumpsuit Anywhere

IMG_20180206_013641011-01.jpeg

As you probably know, I’m obsessed with rompers, which doesn’t always seem like a logical choice because I pee a lot, but fashion over function always. But more and more often, I have to dress like an actual adult, which means not wearing what is essentially shorts everywhere. So, I’ve been all about jumpsuits this season. In particular, Tahari ASL has been my go-to. All of their jumpsuits are beautiful, versatile, and well made.

But there is just one problem…every time I wear one, I get stopped on the street and people wont’ stop complimenting me. It’s almost annoying, but I totally understand. They really are that amazing.

Jumpsuits are great to wear instead of dresses to events, like this Sweetheart Neck Cold Shoulder Jumpsuit I wore to a party for Gretchen Christine Handbags at Impressions in West Hollywood over the weekend. It’s also available in black.

Here are a few of my fave Tahari ASL jumpsuits.

There are so many great things about the One-Shoulder Crepe Jumpsuit. The color just pops and the one shoulder look really stuns. Because there is a small strap, it also lies more comfortably than most one-shoulder pieces and flatters every body type.

The Metallic Cowl Neck Jumpsuit is another stunner. With a  slightly lower back, it’s really unique piece.

The Lace Sleeve Jumpsuit is perfect for chilly days when you need to go beyond basic. The bow at the waist is a unique touch that makes it extra special. 

Jumpsuits are also great if you need a good day to night look, like the office to happy hour. Essentially any time you being a #girlboss.

The Beaded Neck Georgette/Crepe Jumpsuit is a multi-tasker because the beading at the neck eliminates the need for a necklace. It also makes it great for travel. Wear this with the Ruffled Bell-Sleeve Peplum Jacket.

The Short Lace-Sleeve Crepe Jumpsuit is a beautiful and flattering piece that looks wonderful on it’s own or with the Lace-Trim Bi-Stretch Jacket. You can wear this blazer with so many things, even to dress up denim with a pair of sexy heels. 

The Geo-Print Matte Jersey Blouson Jumpsuit has such a fun print and flattering neckline. Combine it with a simple black blazer like the Shawl-Collar Bi-Stretch Jacket during colder months or when dressing for a more corporate environment.

I’m all about the Mykyla Longsleeve Dress. It’s comfortable and stylish, which is something that rarely happens. No shapewear! No problem! And like much of Bobeau’s clothing, it is also available in plus sizes. There are so many ways to wear this dress. You can rock it with boots or evening shoes. I love the choker neckline because it means one less thing to worry about accessorizing.

The Jude Printed Flare Sleeve Dress is another great day to night option. It’s super boho chic. It also doesn’t wrinkle easily, making it great to travel with. You can wear it on a plane and go straight to lunch or dinner without changing. If you want to add jewelry, consider a pair of statement earrings to dress it up for nighttime.

One of my fave tops is the Cold Shoulder Ruffle Sleeve Top. It can be worn with pants or a skirt and is a great layering piece. Wear it to the office with a blazer and take it off for happy hour! This top is available in five different colors and currently on sale. So, don’t feel guilty about buying more than one. In fact, you probably should!

Then there are all of the beautiful flare sleeve tops. Flare sleeves are EVERYWHERE this season. The one I’m wearing in the picture above is sold out, but if you like it, check out the Lee Flare Sleeve Blouse, the adorably preppy Flare Sleeve Dress or the Cora Ruffle Sleeve Sweater. If you like large necklaces or statement necklaces—they are the perfect accessories to balance out flare sleeves.

Here are a few more of my faves:

Kacey Knit Jumper (It’s more like a jumpsuit)

Teddy Crop Pant with Pom Pom Trim (So cute for fall!)

One Button Wrap Cardigan (Consider giving this one as a gift)

Delanie Rouched Sleeve Cardigan (Perfect for layering)

You might need good luck to win, but you won’t good luck when it comes to style with Bobeau.

 

Thank you to Bobeau for sponsoring this post.

Fab for Fall With Tahari ASL

21689230_133340413957700_8961681792633405440_n.jpg

Sometimes, I need to dress like an actual adult, which is why I love Tahari ASL. They have so many fab pieces for fall, all of which are incredibly versatile. You can wear them to work and then to happy hour (my favorite hour) afterward. These are also great to layer with, which is important with the ever-changing (read: incredibly annoying) fall weather. But don't take my word for it. Check out a few of my favorites.

How fashionista is this? Seriously, the Carmeuse Ruffled Cape Blouse is bold and so not basic. It's also burgandy and possibly other adjectives that start with b. Wear it to work. Wear it on a runway.

Keyholes are more popular than pumpkin spice right now. The Mockneck Keyhole Crepe Blouse is chic and stylish. You can wear this top for business causal or actual casual. Also, lavender is love!

The Asymmetrical Ruffle Hem Top is one of the most timeless pieces from Tahari ASL this season. It's a total classic you will wear for seasons to come. Literally, you can wear it all year round. I even wear mine with shorts on warmer fall days. But obviously, I wore it with jeans here because not everyone lives in California and obvs I already wore shorts in another picture.

I was all about floral prints over the summer (have you seen my Instagram?), but I thought when the weather turned cold, I’d have to give them up—wrong! The Ruffled Jabot Floral Print Blouse is the perfect layering piece.

The Star-Neck Jumpsuit is everything! As someone who wears rompers to business meetings (if you don’t believe me, ask anyone who has ever had a business meeting with me), sometimes I need to step it up. This jumpsuit is comfortable and versatile. Throw a jacket on (like the one below) and you have an entirely different outfit.

If I had to pick a favorite Tahari ASL piece this season it’s the Faux Fur Capelet. Seriously, how cute is this? Wear it with a dress, a jumpsuit or jeans and you automatically look like a glamorous movie star. I'm not kidding--this capelet is magical! The second you put it on you will instantly feel like the paparazzi are chasing you everywhere! 

Thank you so much to Tahari for partnering with me for this post.

F-IT Fridays: Your Weekly Dose Of Detail Therapy (Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Those 3 Days When Basically Everything Is On Sale Edition)

I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving and you're having an even happier Black Friday. I rarely shop at brick and mortar stores on Black Friday because I don't want to wake up early and save money on something I didn't want in the first place. I'm also short and fear I'll be killed in a trampling incident. I'd rather shop online and save my sanity. So, whether you are about to kick off your holiday gift shopping or just buy yourself a treat, here are some of my favorite items on sale this weekend, as well as deals I've found at some of my (and probably your) favorite stores.

Neiman Marcus Cashmere Collection Classic Long-Sleeve Cashmere Turtleneck

I love cashmere. It’s so luxurious and when it’s on sale, affordable. Turtlenecks are on every must-have list this season, so check out this fabulous sweater from Neiman Marcus. It is available in several colors as well as a plus size version. 

Bloomingdales C By Angelina Solid Cashmere Scarf

No, you cannot have too much cashmere. This C By Angelina Solid Cashmere Scarf is classic so it will compliment any style outwear. 

J. Crew Campbell Blazer in Crimson Plaid

J. Crew’s Campbell Blazer in Crimson Plaid is winter wonderfab. Wear it to dress up jeans on the weekend or to the office. Be prepared to have everyone annoy you with compliments. Oh, and everything is 40% off at J. Crew this weekend with the code HOLIDAY.

Alice and Olivia Mae Wide-Leg Pants

These Alice and Olivia wide-leg pants are a bold choice that is appropriate for many occasions from a holiday party to your office the next day (but hopefully not to both.) They're on major sale this weekend, as is nearly everything else, at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Splits59 Portia Leggings

If you didn't think activewear could be any sexier (and seriously, we all know it is), just add mesh panels. They're the cherry on top. This weekend, Splits59's Portia Leggings are 25% off (as is everything from Bandier) when you use code BF25.
