jump, jump (suit)Friday, August 23, 2013
This jumpsuit is proving to be one of those pesky pieces that you own and love and never get to wear. Since buying it a month or so ago, I've worn it only once, when I took these photos. It's not practical for biking, and I can only wear it with heels because it's so long. I'm scared that summer will sneak by and I'll only have worn it once--but I'm dreaming of pairing it with a sweater or layering it over a long sleeve blouse in winter. Breakin' all the rules, y'all.
I'll confess I struggle a bit with the slight MC Hammer-ness of the pants part of the jumpsuit.
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao was so great. I truly loved it.
I never even knew what Dahlias were until this summer--the beautiful blooms are stunning. Because I'm terribly insecure, I'll point out that that is my sweetheart's arm demonstrating the scale of the flower, and that my own arms aren't quite so mannish.
I wore this outfit on a date night to Laurelhurst Theater, which shows second run indies. We saw Mud, which was great.
