Monochromes - Again

Jumpsuits and Playsuits

"What you wear is such an expression of who you are"- Diane Kruger

I have a confession to make. Make that two confessions. I'm sorry, there is not one play suit in this post. I needed to make the title rhyme. Sorry.
Secondly, I cannot stand jumpsuits. I hate them. But, there's a reason. A pretty solid one which is actually a story that climaxes somewhere around me being pressed and unable to find a toilet in enough time to step out of the contraption that is a jumpsuit. I peed myself! Honestly, i'm still traumatized from the episode.
Other than that, I think jumpsuits are really beautiful and the fact that the one piece makes a complete outfit is all the more endearing. Like a dress, it's one and done!
However, it is important to be careful to style the jumpsuit properly. It can go from fancy to tacky in one breath. So, here are a few tips to keep in mind when styling this really tricky outfit;

1, 2, Ways To Style Your White Button-down Shirt

"Fashion is not necessarily about labels or brands. It's about something else that comes from within you" - Ralph Lauren

It is chic through all seasons, for all ages and it works for about just every event.
For the first look, I tucked my white button-down shirt into an Ankara pencil, midi length skirt for a tailored appeal.
This simple ensemble can work for the office on a Monday or a Friday as the case may be.

A Relaunch and a Birthday Post

It is safe to say that at some point, every blogger has had to apologize for being MIA. In fact, it is a rite of passage. Yes? Yes!
So, here is my apology, laced with a promise to not go away for so long again. Well, at least not for a year.
