Remixing the jumper




Sunnies: Gucci | Earrings: Stella and DotScarf: J Crew Factory | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (in other colors on sale here!) | Jumpsuit: Express (option, option)  | Sandals: Sam Edelman

As you guys read this, I will be in San Antonio!! I wish I was there longer than one weekend, but it will be good to be home regardless. It's my goddaughter's 1st birthday - I missed her baby dedication a few months ago because I was home with strep and had to cancel at the last minute. Her birthday made for the perfect excuse to reschedule my trip!

You know what I realized is the perfect travel outfit? This jumpsuit. This is the same one I dressed up for a date night with the husband a few weeks ago here. All I needed was a scarf to double as a wrap in case I get cold, and otherwise, I was good to go. And if you think about it - I never ever use the restroom on the plane, so the inconvenience factor of getting dressed in and out of a jumpsuit is suddenly a non-issue. Genius, I tell ya.


Because you all seem to like the behind the scenes stuff - I also tried tying the scarf the way I did it in my infamous scarf tying video here. It made me feel like a bank robber though with this outfit, so I switched it to the more traditional way. Out of curiosity - which do you prefer? Funny how much shorter the scarf looks the more traditional tying method.

  5. Hm, you know, I agree with your decision on the traditional scarf tie for this. I think the infamous scarf tie is better for colder weather when it's part of other layers and more covered up pieces. For this I like the open, relaxed feel of the regular tie. Excellent choice, cute look altogether, and I'm impressed that you never use the bathroom on on airplane!!

    1. Thanks for the affirmation!!!
      Though I made the bad life choice of having an iced latte before we boarded so about halfway through the flight, I had to potty sooooo bad but I refused out of principle! Haha oops.

  6. Ha. The thought of the bathroom issue popped in my head right away but I also try my hardest not to use the bathroom on the plane. It is the perfect travel outfit and I like the looser scarf look.

    1. Yes, and I realized it's easier for going through security also and not having to worry about untying it and re-tying!
      Thanks!!

  7. The scarf is so cute with the jumpsuit! I also try to avoid the plane bathroom but it seems every time I fly, I immediately have to pee, haha (probably from nerves!).

    1. Hahah! I know what you mean!! And what's funny (or not funny) is the night before, I had been watching a documentary on the flight that had to land on the Hudson River. Probably not a good thing to watch before you fly!!! I was definitely extra nervy and the iced latte I also had did not help my potty case!! I still managed to hold it in tho! :)

  10. Both ways of tying the scarf give it a different feel and I like them for different reasons. The triangle shape brings in more pattern and color into the outfit while the more traditional wrap adds length.

    1. I agree about showcasing the pattern! I will have to tie it like this in the winter!

  11. I love the triangle way of tying the scarf I think but only because the other way is quite 'standard'. I love the colour of the scarf against the black.
