Jumping for Joy over these Jumpsuits

Home for the weekend in Spartanburg, SC and got to take pictures of my perfect best friend! Carmen loves jumpsuits, and two of the many in her closet are perfect for a dressy occasion or a casual shopping date.


This jumpsuit from Express is “fire”, if you will. Carmen wore this when she went to watch Miss South Carolina Teen and it was a standout, because everyone else was in dresses. This jumpsuit needs to be worn to a fancy evening out, it can’t be dressed down and that is OKAY. Sometimes you just need a sleek, black jumpsuit in your closet.

The cut-outs on the jumpsuit are slimming because they are all drawn to the center gold-piece, so don’t be afraid of them! Cut-outs like these are bold and tasteful.

Carmen paired her outfit with studded black Gianni Bini heels, but it could also be worn with a nude or even a gold shoe.


This favorite jumpsuit of Carmen’s comes from Urban Outfitters and is the best for outlet mall shopping and lunch dates. When it gets to be fall it will be super cuter paired with a sweater.

The material is soft and thin, so it needs a good bralette underneath. The fabric has a shine to it that adds some flare as well as the wide-leg bottoms. The bottoms and the halter style straps are a slimming characteristics of this jumpsuit.

Carmen also added a strappy brown shoe with a little heel, because like me she is on the short side, but if you’re tall a flat sandal will work perfect with this outfit!


This jumpsuit is fun and flirty. The black Express jumpsuit is sassy and in charge. No matter what your occasion, make a bold choice and go for the jumpsuit instead of dress.
