Comfy Style: In Praise of the Jumpsuit!

Spring 2014 is ripe with trends; the crop top, the midi, cool pastels, mesh trim, and the jumpsuit. I’ve seen a few curvy girls rock the crop top, but I am still skeptical about how good it would look on me (I am quite busty, and I don’t think I need MORE attention paid to that area). However, I do love the look of a slinky jumpsuit – it’s so late 70s Studio 54 chic.

Being the thrifty fashionista I am, I like to try a new trend on the cheap just in case I don’t like it. Luckily, Macy’s was having a sale on plus size wear, and I snagged this NY Collection black jumpsuit! It’s slinky, comfy, machine washable, and my favorite attribute: POCKETS!

I also got some FANTASTIC deals from Fashion to Figure, a store that caters to the curvy woman (sizes 12-26). Amazingly, I got a dress, faux leather jacket, and jewelry ALL for under $50! Here’s the earrings and Egyptian style necklace I ordered!

Complete the look with these studded heels from Just Fab, and I’m ready to go dancing!

On a completely different note, unfortunately my University of Michigan Wolverines didn’t win the Big 10 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship. Even more unfortunate, my husband’s Michigan State Spartans won (boo!!). Fort those of you unfamiliar, these two schools are BIG rivals. It’s always exciting to watch them “go at it!”

Well….there’s always the NCAA Tournament to look forward to! My alma mater, the University of Florida Gators are a #1 seed and the SEC Conference Champions! GO GATORS!!!!

Who loves watching March Madness? Who do you root for?
