Jump Into It

Forever 21 romper jumpsuit

When I saw a few jumpsuits (playsuits, rompers, or whatever you want to call them) on the Forever 21 website last night, I knew it was time to pay my local F21 store a visit. It just so happened that when I entered the store, several of the sales staff were very helpful in aiding me on my quest for the trendy items. As a side note, I searched unsuccessfully for high-waisted shorts, because they did not receive any yet. After trying on about 4 different jumpsuits, I ended up buying the black cotton one pictured above as well as a black cotton halter style that had full length, wide legs. The jumpsuit pictured above looks better on, when the drawstring is tied tight and the top is bunched up for a blouson effect. For a nighttime look, I will pair it with some metallic leggings, a fun necklace, some wedges, a faux tan, and a smile. This is one of my favorite summer trends and when I saw jumpsuits all over the London retail scene, I thought it would take months to reach the States. Well it's only been a month, and I'm not complaining. Now if I could only find some corset style high-waisted jeans like the ones I tried on at Topshop...

Like I "predicted", the maxi dress is in full force. I saw many styles of printed maxi dresses at my F21 store. I think I'll pass on those. My favorite maxi dress is this gauze one I bought from Target by Patrick Robinson.
