The jumpsuit is fundamentally a utilitarian garment. In seeking to elevate it to couture one might pair it with lighthearted nearly frivolous accessories. The juxtaposition of workman like substructure and impractical garnish creates the tension that makes the outfit. I have always loved the dungarees but I never really thought about the jumpsuit until I came across this denim example, last fall. I love the idea of the jumpsuit because it makes getting dressed so effortless. This particular jumpsuit has a funtional aesthetic; to take the look from casual to dressy I paired it with booties and a bold necklace, and since I didn’t have the right belt to break up the look I decided to tie a scarf around my waist instead. I have a feeling this item is going to be part of my wardrobe for a long time.
During our last visit to San Antonio, Texas. We stopped by Two Brothers Barbecue Market for some good ‘ol Texas barbecue. We chose this particular joint because it boasted classic Texas pit barbecue. The restaurant is family friendly, and miles away from mainstream San Antonio. We wanted to avoid the tourist traps and find authentic local food, and we managed to do just that. The diner has a rustic feel with live oak trees indoors and out. Once inside ordering was easy, with so much to choose from we finally settled on beef brisket, chopped beef, sausage, creamed corn, and peachy beans. The food was moist, and tender, smokey and delicious. My verdict, Perfecto!
New York City is one of the most populous industrial cities in the world, and, to be quite honest, it is not the prettiest. It doesn’t have the romance of Venice or Paris—no canals or afternoon strolls along the Seine. But when it snows, New York is beautiful. A blanket of white covers the city and what you get is a wintery tapestry.
The day after however, is something else: salt, melting ice, muddy streets and cars churning up black slush make getting around quite messy. On drab winter days I often feel the urge to stay indoors. When I finally throw away the covers, I brew myself a cup of coffee and add a pop of color to beat the blues. I especially love Mac’s Ruby Woo, and this yellow sweater is a ray of sunshine cutting through the gray.
These days any outfit casual enough to run around with Tiger (without the boots, of course) yet stylish enough for date night or girls night out is a keeper. Thanks, Seyi, for the outfit shots!
