Classic in a Jumpsuit and the Sunday Showcase


Hello friends! Once again I'm joining some blog friends in the Sunday Showcase Feature. Due to our family move from Georgia to Florida I missed last month's feature - and I truly did miss it. Also, I can't say enough how much I appreciate this blog community. I could barely keep up my IG, never mind maintain the blog, but you beauties stuck around and supported me and I'm so GRATEFUL!
In fact, if not for the push of this collaboration, I'm not sure I'd be posting outfit pictures yet. I haven't felt like myself. We've been so busy getting here and then unpacking that I let myself go. My hair needs coloring and it's crazy in this humidity. Crazy every day! My brows are out of control, I'm eating poorly and I am not consistently exercising. You know what else?? (Since I'm on this pitiful vent-fest.) After walking almost 5 miles the other day and then walking around barefoot  on tile floors, I did something to my foot!

BUT, I'm here, right? Halleluia, I'm here. And!!! I'm excited to tell you that I've finished the full story on our move!! Just as soon as I get the final edits complete, I'll be sharing those sweet details with you, but until then let's talk some fashion - finally.

I actually went shopping for a new jumpsuit to feature in this month's showcase. In addition to Kellyann and Ada, we also have the lovely Stephanie from Glamorous and Geeky joining us. Kellyann and Stephanie, I need help with my crazy Florida hair! wink!


Now let's get to this jumpsuit. My shopping adventure happened to be on tax free weekend - and it was a Saturday, but I was determined. With Target nearby, I decided to start there since I've seen a few posts by Andrea at Living on Cloud Nine featuring cute jumpsuits. Thanks Andrea!


I searched the racks and found one. One single jumpsuit. It was cute but slightly too big. The fitting room attendant seemed friendly, so I asked her if she could help me locate more. After a quick search in the computer, she found that the Super Target nearby had some smalls in their store. Guess where I went?

I drove through the crazy traffic, found parking and weaved through the racks of clothing and crowds to find this one jumpsuit.

I found another helpful attendant and explained what I was looking for.

"Do you know what brand it's by?"

Ugh. Gosh, I didn't think to look.

We began to walk through the women's department. Nothing.

"Maybe it was Xhilaration?" 

She looked on her phone. Nothing.

I had to pull out my phone and call the other store. I couldn't remember the name of the girl who helped me and I was doing a poor job of describing her. Thankfully the employee on the other end of the phone was helpful and the fitting room attendant showed up in the background.

"It was A New Day". 

"Oh, yeah. A New Day. That was it!" 

I hung up the phone and once again sought out the employee to return to our search. We found the jumpsuits in 2 minutes! Lesson learned. Save about 20 to 30 minutes of your time by snapping a picture of the tag with the brand and item number.

Sheeesh!



There you have it. I found a classic jumpsuit, with pockets for only $15.00 cash and 2 hours of precious time. lol!

This jumpsuit is available online for $20. Check it out here. Reminder...I tend to be a medium at Target but I think I could have gone for an extra small in this. You can see how I clipped the straps on mine in the back with a jewelry accessory for a better fit. After that it was super comfortable.




The shoes happen to be from Target as well but they are from a few years back. You've seen this hat many times here on the blog, as well as this bracelet and Necklace from Premier Designs. They are classics as well!

Well, I can't wait to see your outfits my friends and it feel so good to play in fashion for an evening again!!

Link up, link up, link up!

  3. I am so so glad that A) you found the perfect jumpsuit for a steal B) you are back to blogging an outfit - and what a fantastic one it is and C) you are settling down at your new home in Florida. I currently have a striped jumpsuit sitting on a Target shopping cart too. I am glad you found THE ONE for you. It is modern and classic and I love how you styled it, like I mentioned in today's blog post. Most of my outfit is also by Target and my jumpsuit is from "A New Day" too. Your sandals and hat are so so cute, Chrissy!

    P.S. How fun - I didn't realize - that all my 3 other co-hosts today live in Florida!

    1. Thank you! I pretty much live in hats here. Guess it's a good thing I was given a few trucker hats before I moved further south!

  7. Super cute, Chrissy! I swear this story sounded like one of my own. HA! Oh the things we do...like a dog on a bone. (have you heard that saying😳) Love your hat too. I need to find a jumpsuit myself. I'd like one for the holidays, but then you need a jacket and yada-yada-yada. I guess we'll see if I find one I can't live without. Happy hump day! XO
