Although I’m a heel lover through and through, many of you have shared that you either don’t like or physically can’t wear heels. I want to post more outfits that are both practical and comfy, so decided to make “Shoe Swap” into a regular series! In these posts, I simply show how I’d wear one outfit with different footwear options – one of them always being a flat or lower shoe.
For this post I’m partnering with Nordstrom to share my latest finds finds, including this versatile winner of a jumpsuit! It has pockets, the crossover neckline is nursing-friendly, and the cropped length = no hemming needed on petites. Fit is TTS – I’m wearing xxs and it’s a flowy, comfortable fit and snug at the banded elastic drawstring waist. Compared to another jumpsuit I have which is dressier, this is made of a casual, stretchy knit ribbed fabric that can take you from coffee dates to the airport.
I’d dress it up with black heels and a waist belt, or throw on flats or slide sandals for running errands. I don’t own a pair, but was thinking a black platform sneaker or the same Soludos espadrilles but in black leather would be more chic for an all-black travel look!
For a jumpsuit in a less casual material, Leith pieces usually fit me in XXS and they just came out with a clean-cut jumpsuit in black or grey! I have not tried this but like the look of the neckline, seaming, and cropped wider legs, and the material is described as a medium weight crepe. Another option that I did get to try on is this Hinge jumpsuit which fit very well in XXS. It features adjustable straps which are always helpful for petites, pockets, a cropped length, and a nursing-friendly button-down front. Material on the Hinge feels like a lightweight crepe.
Nordstrom also just got my current favorite sunglasses in stock. These are a little more square than the popular Celine Audrey sunglasses, and have a more expensive look to them than the price point. The Nordstrom stock photo does not show a small white Quay logo on the lens – not sure if that’s just an outdated photo, or if their version is actually logo-free (which I would much prefer)! Also, I always get questions on my old black heels, so am excited to have found a similar similar pump in both black and blush! I have not tried these on yet so can’t speak to sizing or fit.
There’s a clasp on this jumpsuit if you want a more modest neckline (pictured above), or you can leave it open and layer a lace camisole or bralette underneath.
Thank you to Nordstrom for partnering on this post.
