After I recently discovered my love of the jumpsuit, I have been stumbling upon so many jumpsuit gems! This Anthro find was no exception. I’m going to keep this short and sweet. I’m totally jazzed in a jumpsuit- again!
Jumpsuit: Corey Lynn Calter for Anthropologie ($17 marked down from $170)
Shoes: Sam Edelman via Nordstrom Rack ($50 marked down from $90)
Black ring: Tory Burch via Nordstrom Rack ($10 marked down from $100)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) As I mentioned in my last jumpsuit post, jumpsuits are a little tricky on the fitting, if you ask me. I’ve had some trouble finding a jumpsuit that fits perfectly right off the hanger. When you think about it, though, it’s really no surprise. A jumpsuit is a top and a bottom in one piece, assuming that we all are one size on top and bottom! Don’t be discouraged if you’re having the same issue! I found that a little basic tailoring goes a long way. I “pulled in” the top of this jumpsuit by sewing the top in a little smaller under each arm. Five minutes, needle and thread, and you’ve got a perfectly fitting piece!
2) Wow, I’m super late on the matte nail trend, huh?! Nails are not my forte though, readers, as you all know! Anywho, I received the Essie “matte” top coat as a gift from my cousin- and I’m a huge fan! It makes any color a “matte” color. However, I’ve found that the matte top coats work best on colors that are “flat” meaning no metallic, sheen, or glitter in them. Below you can see how I recently used a tooth pick (for the nail art on my thumb) and a matte top coat for a fun spring manicure.
Anyone else have jumpsuit tips? I hope everyone is having a good week thus far! Happy mid-week and thanks for stopping by!

Fierce girl! I love this jumpsuit on you👌 I’m so happy to see you’re still loving the jumpsuit trend!
I usually have a hard time finding the perfect fit too that because I’m short waisted with long legs…but I did stumble upon a brand called Splendid and they seem to have a better cuts when it comes to jumpsuits. I’ve only had to do very minor tailoring to them.
Ooo good tip Jackie! Thanks!!!! Xo
The windswept photo is everything!
I just now realized why I am so intensely interested in your blog, Melissa, besides really liking YOU. I am studying fashion so that when it comes to my next Life, I will just KNOW what to wear, how to wear it, and where to buy!!! Wow, you are looking glam!!! Love, Amy ❤
Amy this is perfect!!! Because I have no green thumb! I’m learning from you!!!! Maybe I’ll grow a huge garden in my next life ❤ xo
GRIN!!! So we learn from each other! As you say, this IS perfect!! LOL ❤
I love a good jumpsuit but have stayed away from them because I am vertically challenged! You look fabulous in this double color suit though..Love the addition of the hat and belt, makes the outfit perfect! And can we talk about the awesome blue nails? I have not tried matte nails yet..i am definitely more of a shine/glossy kinda girl as far as nails are concerned, but not the sparkling kind though…
I know!! I was so slow on the uptake with the matte- but I ended up enjoying it!! And btw I’m not tall either…just always in big shoes lol 🙂
Beautiful pics, nice outfit ! Love the blue nails ❤
Beautiful! And it doesn’t even look like a jumpsuit given the color blocking. Gorgeous shots xo
