If You Jump, I'll Jumpsuit

Up until a month ago, I've worn officially one romper in my adult life. I had two for a split second half a decade ago, but during my minimalist phase I deemed it unnecessary (okay, but it was a 90's navy and white floral print and it was so beautiful and I might need a moment of silence for it). 

 A good ol' photo from the archives of me wearing my romper while holding things I was getting rid of...including that precious other romper. I can't believe I'm saying this, but this photo feels very 2013.

I am at least glad I had the sense to keep the other one—a 25-cent find my mom picked up at a garage sale that fits me like a glove and may or may not be for a child (see picture above)—but I've never ventured out on my own to add to my collection. I've always found that comfortable bathroom experiences outweigh the cuteness of jumpsuits and rompers...until now.

I work as an Editor for an online magazine called The Good Trade that covers sustainable and ethically-made fashion, beauty, and all sorts of other lifestyle good stuff. This means that we get to take a look at some of the most beautiful and responsibly-made fashion and beauty products in the world, and I am beyond thankful for the gifts brands have shared with us. Enter: the jumpsuit. THIS jumpsuit.

This baby is one of the basics from Hackwith Design House. She's so beautiful that I find myself wearing her about once a week. She's reversible, too, but I like showing off my decency mole* too much to flip her around—but it's cute either way.

*I have a mole on my chest that never saw the light of day when I was in high school because of school uniforms and a particularly modest cross country coach. My friends and I were immature teenage girls who thought it was funny and thus was born the "decency mole" and I can't stop laughing about how stupid and wonderful that is. I can't believe I haven't told everyone about it already. See my picture below to see how far I've come in my "immodesty" 😱

Thanks to this jumpsuit, I've spent an inordinate amount of time on Thredup, ShopGoodwill, and eBay looking for more. Even though I have to get butt naked to go to the restroom, I've finally found the jumpsuit that's worth all the fuss.
