the romper’s older sister: jumpsuits are back, and this one solves all of my #shortgirlproblems

IMG_1899.JPG.jpegi am totally and completely obsessed with this look. i wore this to dinner at nobu miami, and it was a hit. jumpsuits are seriously on the rise in 2017, but not just any kind of jumpsuit. this spring/summer we’re seeing a ton of wide-leg pants. they are lovely on tall, slender figures and long legs — but for those of us who are vertically challenged,¬†sometimes a wide-legged pant or jumpsuit can really overwhelm a petite frame. what i love about this jumpsuit in particular (from express!) is that the stripes actually elongate the legs while concealing the midsection. the adjustable straps were a clutch move, allowing the torso to fit to perfection. this piece actually comes in petite, but i opted for the regular length because i preferred the way the pants fell when they were a bit longer. since this outfit has a high-neck i decided to wear my hair up and away from my face. kept it comfy in some slip-on mules with a chunky heel. this look is so sophisticated and springy. i was thrilled to find the perfect 2017 alternative to the ‘romper’. i’m calling it the romper’s older sister, because something about this outfit made me feel sophisticated and “grown”. would you rock this? how many of my followers are too afraid that a printed pantsuit would overwhelm their frame? i dare you to give it a try this season –¬†and tag me on instagram when you do!
