It is largely known that I rarely jump outside my comfort zone. I have a look and I stick to that look 99% of the time. Curly hair, flared skirts, button-up shirts, sweaters, peter pan collars, and Oxford shoes are just a few notable parts of my style. Anything that varies from that I tend to stay away from.
That being said, it was a huge shock to me that I even considered adding this French Connection jumpsuit to my Le Tote closet. My petite stature and barely there legs tend to not work in one piece options or elongated silhouettes. But I got Le Tote to try pieces outside my comfort zone and they just styled it so adorably. So in my virtual closet it went and to the door it came.
Seeing it for the first time I knew I was in trouble. The material was thick, but light weight. It was extremely soft and comfortable. I was doubtful the jumpsuit would actually fit, so I held it up to me for the first test. I was expecting the pant legs to cover my feet and a bit of the floor, but they didn't! I could still see my toes! To be honest, I couldn't wait to get home and try it on. And that is exactly what I did as soon as I stepped through the door.
What surprised me most was the fit. While maybe a tad too large, nothing was sagging and the pant legs weren't dragging on the floor (which always happens). The straps actually sat on my shoulders and didn't slip off. If I traveled often, this would be my go-to piece to board a plane. The simplicity of the jumpsuit makes it effortless to wear however you like. Be girly, sultry, or work ready. Stepping out of my comfort zone may not be easy, but it is always worth it.
