The fit is amazing and I adore the side slits; which are a great way to show off your shoes. These pants are on sale for a…

The Jumpsuit

Every 5 years or so jumpsuits become the must have item to wear. Each time they make a comeback with modern details to help keep them on trend. Jumpsuits are really chic and always a pleasant and unexpected twist to any look. Lately, I’ve been trying to build my style Rolodex to encompass fab styles other than the quintessential sundress for summer. The jumpsuit has been a great addition to my bag of tricks.
