Hi everyone and Happy Monday!

Today I want to discuss the "art of the jumpsuit" as a perfect Spring transition piece. Not only is it incredibly cool (in both forms of the word), but it is also an effortless piece that transcends seasons. I am a self-proclaimed jumpsuit fanatic so when I came across this little gem, it was a no-brainer. I love the 70's feel you get from the oversized floral print and the wide legs of this jumpsuit, which is perfect for an "almost-spring" day OR, if you aren't living in a climate where it already feels like Summer -- thank you 85 degrees -- then this would be perfect with a lightweight cape or blazer for work or a night out.

When styling a jumpsuit like this that makes a huge statement all by itself, it's important to keep the rest of the look streamlined and clean with minimal accessories. Of course, I live for a pop of color with a bold lip, but you could also experiement with a bright shoe or clutch. No matter which path you choose, the jumpsuit will forever be catalogued in the open archives of "things that always work. literally always."
