the jumpsuit

TWELFTH AVENUE TWELFTH AVENUE TWELFTH AVENUE TWELFTH AVENUEJumpsuit: BCBG (similar). Jacket: Leith (40% off). Flats: Anyi Lu (similar). Backpack: Perlina (super old, but similar here).

Yes, this is my third outfit post in a row wearing this jacket, but never before have I worn it around my elbows. See? Versatility. The real star of this one-woman, one-audience-member fashion show is my BCBG silk overalls jumpsuit, which has been a closet mainstay for nearly half a decade, patiently awaiting its occasional appearances at the likes of Mexican getaways, summer concerts, and most recently, lunch on NE Alberta Street. In case you need some convincing, one look at the jumpsuit section of Shopbop is enough to prove that the glamorized onesie is enjoying its time in the summer sun.

In terms of bag-wear, the ladies Olsen have once again turned our eyes toward baby backpacks with their labels Elizabeth and James and The Row, albeit at a much steeper price and much greater luxury than their 90’s counterparts. This Perlina backpack, with its supple black leather and deceptive roominess, will always remain a favorite, and when it teams up with the jumpsuit, I swear…fireworks.
