Alta’rd State: Striped off the Shoulder Jumpsuit

 

This jumper, though! If you have been following me, you know that I am pretty romper obsessed (you can check out how I styled a floral romper here). But, until recently, I had never tried a jumpsuit. I don’t know why. It’s pretty much the same thing. Right?! I came across this striped off the shoulder jumpsuit at Altar’d State and couldn’t believe how much I loved it.

It is pretty long, which is one reason I was so thrilled about it (I’m 5’7″ FYI). Sometimes, rompers or jumpers are too short in the torso and don’t fit right (tall girls, you know my struggle). But this one is incredibly comfortable and the pant legs even reach the floor!

Insert victory dance.

I decided to just wear sandals with this jumpsuit so I didn’t lose that pant length with heals. I love the gold color and have been wearing them with a lot. However, this would look really cute and put together with wedges. And if you are a little shorter, you would definitely pull it off great (plus it would keep the jumper from dragging too much on the ground).

Like I said, I found this at Altar’d State and you can find the exact one linked above (I’m linking similar ones below). It is perfect for summer and such a fun look to play around with. And seriously so easy to wear. The tie around the waist cinches and breaks up the jumpsuit, adding some shape. And since it is off the shoulder and pretty open, it looks great with a bold statement necklace.

Happy weekend!

I had a lot of fun shooting these pictures–despite the incredibly hot weather! (My hair was not made for these kinds of days.) I shared a Lily Pulitzer fringe skirt look a few posts back that you can check out. I’m still riding that wave and sharing this LP demi dress.

I’m such a pink girl, so this dress was “add to cart” at first sight. One of my favorite parts is? the sweetheart neckline–it is such a flattering style on any figure. This dress is much more of a structured/fitted look as opposed to your typical summer sway dress. It makes it great for special occasions–weddings, nights out, vacations, a grad, and so on.

A convertible strap also comes with the dress. You can see it in the slide at the end.? It adds more detail and is great if you don’t want to go strapless. If you do use the strap, I would suggest skipping a necklace and just accessorizing with statement earrings or bracelets instead.

You can also pair it with a structured jacket for cooler nights (or if you’re trapped inside AC). I would be careful with anything too lose or “flimsy” though since it will dress down the look, and mixing the styles will look sloppy.

Also, I linked some similar shoes as well as a pair of heels from NY & Co that I adore. As far as accessories go, I choose gold because this pink + gold color combo is hands down my fave (not to mention these colors bring out your summer tan). You can find the exact earrings and necklace down below as well. I’ll let you in on a little secret–Kohl’s and Target!

Don’t mind me, just being one of the boys. Mk? Mk. Sometimes I love to dress up and other days my mood demands denim and a ball cap. It’s a balancing act really. (It also makes packing for trips a bit of a challenge.) But, I am loving the look and feel of these distressed boyfriend jeans.

American eagle has the most comfortable jeans in my opinion. The tomgirl style (their boyfriend jean equivalent) I’m wearing is no exception. They have a lot of extra room for when you want something more relaxed and not as tight or restraining. And I love the distressed look on this style because it just adds to the laid back feeling.

This tank is under $7. Actually, I grabbed it and tried it on just because I wanted to try on a pair of overalls and needed something to finish the look. However, I ended up walking away with this tank instead because I love how it fits. It is super easy to wear and no fuss. I wasn’t able to link it at the end, so here is the must-have slim tank if you want to check that out. A loose v-neck or pull-over would also be a perfect go-to for these jeans.

Also, quick note, I love these flops. They are Lauren Conrad, and come in a lot of colors! I wore them a couple posts back with shorts and a peplum tank. I consider them my “fancy” flip-flops. You can go ahead and laugh now, but they are under $10 and are great for running out the door. They are even cute with a sundress–especially the gold pair!

Finally, this watch was from NY & Co a while back, but I still linked a silver colored watch below that I love (maybe even more) and similar hoops as well. This cap is from Altar’d State. It is one of my new favorite stores–and seriously smells sooo good! You can view the Oh My Stars ball cap here.?I also added another cap down below that is super cute (and cheaper!).

(I try my best to link everything at the end and in one place, but sometimes I’m not able to. In that case I will just link them directly in my text.)
