Reader Request - Jumpsuit Obsession

Greetings Fashion Pad Readers,

I'm back from my annual family vacation and of course I'm absolutely sad about that, lol. We had a blast per usual and getting back to 'life' is always challenging once you leave a little slice of paradise. Well, actually its challenging for me every Monday but I hope to correct that because I am very thankful to be able to do what I enjoy....and get paid for it :-)

I have a reader request to share with you all from KD......

I'm in need of a jumpsuit. Can you look for one for me please?

Thanks KD for being super straight forward, lol. When looking for a trendy item, I suggest going with a 'fast fashion' site because the options are immense and the prices are low. This way you get a chance to enjoy a trendy look without investing a significant amount of funds.


Now lets take a look below at several affordable and stylish options. All of the following jumpsuits are $40 and below.


Jumpsuit Obsession - I




The thing that I love about jumpsuits (and why I believe they should be added as a staple garment), is they can be dressed up or down easily.




Jumpsuit Obsession - II




Sometimes it can be hard to gauge the pant length of a jumpsuit. If you are vertically challenged (a shorty), then I suggest you try a style with a tapered leg like the one in the middle above.





Jumpsuit Obsession - IV




I love printed jumpsuits, however a sleek black number is essential for an impromptu evening affair.





Jumpsuit Obsession - III





I hope you find an option above KD, but if not, please visit the above stores because there are plenty of jumpsuits available on their respective sites.

Outfit: Linen Blazer and Graphic Print Romper

Greetings Fashionistas,

I usually commit to the looks I come up with. However, there are two conditions that will make me just give up. First is comfort; I refuse to be uncomfortable in anything I wear. I mean, you can't enjoy fashion if you're worried about how you look or the fit is off. Second is the weather. I am a wimp in severe weather conditions. If it is cold, I can't brave the low temps without layers. I've seen women forego a jacket just to show off the straps on their halter! No way man! On the other end, if it's too hot, I cannot stand many layers. I think one garment...two at the most is all I can take before I just flat out faint, lol.




 After this photo....I realized I wasn't going to last the evening with this blazer, lol
I'm glad I don't wear any liquid/powder foundation or other stuff like that. No shade for anyone who does but it would have melted right off my face in this heat!!!!

Outfit: Striped Button Down and Faux Wrap Skirt

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I wore the look below last Sunday to church. I was a little disheveled but it was either be late to church....or miss 15 or 20 minutes trying to "look polished". I stay chasing after God so being late was not an option.




This red leather bag was the perfect pop of color. And let's not ignore my new ankle-strap heels! Nothing fancy.....but the platform makes these babies uber comfy!
 
 
 


It annoys me greatly that I took the time to iron the heck outta this skirt and it still wrinkled within 2 minutes flat! *le sigh*

Outfit: Graphic Print Jumpsuit

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!! I'm off for the next 10 days and I'm sooooooo excited! Vacation time....whoop, whoop! But first, we are celebrating my niece's sweet 16 tomorrow and I'm headed home to help with the final planning and be available for set up.  I cannot wait! This youngster is so hilarious and I thank God we can celebrate this teenage milestone!



Soooo.......last weekend I went to meet with family regarding our vacation next week and this is what I wore, LOL. Hey, don't judge me! I have to get in my clothes whenever the opportunity arises. If not, what's the point of me shopping so darn much????
 
 
 



I like the wide-legged look. A touch of red was added via my heels....although they're pretty much hidden. The jumpsuit is a little clingy so I felt self-conscience in my tummy area but oh well....these photos don't really reflect my fears so I guess it's okay.

Oufit: Sundress, Sun Hat, and Suntan


Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I'm off to a frenzied start this week with work and prepping for my vacation next week. Can you believe it's halfway through the month of July and I have only been to the beach once this summer??? I told the bf he has to do better. He knows I like to beach bum. I'm a nerd so I faithfully carry my Nook with me but I occasionally get up from my beach chair to take photos, get close to the water, and people watch, lol. I will be making up lost time beginning Monday ;-)



This sun is a beast.....I think atmospheric scientists are withholding back some serious revelations.....like the fact that there clearly is no longer an ozone layer. It's just HOT!
 
 

I went to lunch with my colleague and she laughed at my sun hat, lol. She thought I was doing the most because she had no intention of staying outdoors for longer than walking from her car to the restaurant. I told her I was going to be in the sun all next week so I needed to protect my skin for any casual outings.....but then I changed my story to the truth. I told her I wanted to look like I was headed to tea and she could just bite me, LOL.
 
 
 


Not sure when I dented the hat but it did protect me pretty well....
