In Full Bloom

I bought this jumpsuit about a year ago when I was pregnant, but it still fits me alright. I absolutely love it, and it's one of the few jumpsuits I've ever found that actually works ok for my body type. I hate having it just collect dust in my closet, so I've been trying to think of ways to re-purpose it so I can get some use out of it (despite SF weather and despite the fact that I don't have a very packed social calendar). On a whim the other morning, I threw it on with my new vest and loved the way it looked together. I used to spend hours upon hours trying on different outfits at home, but between my schedule with 2 kids and the fact that Parker goes to sleep in our room about 7:30 every night, I don't really have even have a full 5 minutes to put something together. So when something works, I just roll with it. 

Incidentally, in my haste to get dressed, I forgot to put on underwear--no, I'm not making this up. No big deal really, except for when my zipper got stuck in the ladies' room at work and I had to have two, yes TWO of my colleagues work on zipping it up. With my bare butt partially exposed. Keep it classy, Lisa. Luckily said colleagues are  friends, too, and were good sports about the whole ordeal. 

My mother-in-law brought me this Gas Bijoux necklace straight from Paris, and it's been on heavy rotation since she gave it to me. To say that I now want everything in the collection would not be an overstatement. WARNING: DANGER. 

Thanks for reading and as always, see below for links to products. This exact H & M vest can be found here, and the jumpsuit is long sold out, but I went a little crazy linking to some great alternatives. 

Hoppy/Happy Easter!
