It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the jumpsuit. They are like dresses in the sense that you don’t have to think about that top you’ll where with what bottom. You’re instantly dressed with a jumpsuit. I love them because other than the sheer fact that I can be really lazy, I’m usually running late. So honestly, the less I have to worry about throwing on as I run out the door, the better.
I am so in love with this utility jumpsuit from Madewell. Wide leg pants can tend to make me look squatty but thankfully that’s not the case with the legs here (at least I don’t think so). I had this in my cart for a day or so because of said wide leg concern, but after reading a bunch of reviews, I ordered it. So many of the reviews mentioned this utility jumpsuit being super flattering, and this was coming from women of all different sizes. I can’t agree more with these ladies. I am so happy I bought this. Utility jumpsuits can sometimes lean a little too Top Gun rather than represent a legitimate clothing item. This is cut slim enough around the torso and the drawstring waist cinches at just the right spot. Even Matt, who’s usually not the biggest fan of jumpsuits, liked this one.
For reference, I’m typically a size 4 but I went with a size 2 in this. So I’d say it runs just a tad big. It did give a little after wearing in for a bit so I’m glad I went with the size 2. This isn’t pure white, which I love because it provides more of a vintage, worn-in feel. If you’re worried about spilling on it, then you can also get this exact jumpsuit in a beautiful olive or burgundy.
In the spirit of keeping the utility jumpsuit a little more tomboy, I stuck to flat sandals rather than a block heel or anything like that. I got these black slides by ATP Atelier maybe 1 or 2 years ago in New York City and they are full leather and still look brand new. They are totally worth the investment. Even though they’re unique they are still pretty timeless and go with a lot. Whenever is gets warm I feel the undying need to add a bandana to everything – so I did that here. I assure you this will not be the last bandana you see on me, so you’d better get used to it now.
I used to hate mixing brown and black because I thought it didn’t match, but it definitely does. If you don’t believe me, go into your closet and try it. I think the trick is to keep the brown lighter, like the shade of this cross body bag, and you’ll be fine.
Here’s to more jumpsuits and more bandanas!
