Navy Floral Culotte Jumpsuit and Fabulous Friday Linkup.

Good evening everyone. I am posting again this Thursday night because I am co-hosting the Fabulous Friday linkup with my beautiful friend JENNIE from A Pocketful of Polka Dots - I have always loved the name of her blog. Jennie and I have collaborated together many times and just three weeks ago she co-hosted Thursday Moda with me. You can read her post today here. She is wearing the Prettiest White Blouse and Gorgeous Tan Bock Heel Sandals so check her out. Jennie's style is always on fire, just like her beautiful red hair.

For my outfit today I am showing a Navy Floral Culotte Jumpsuit from Zion - a new brand that is soon opening online, too. I love the bold big flowers here in shades of maroon, cobalt and mustard. This jumpsuit is in a light chiffon material but is completely lined so you are comfortable and don't have to worry wearing it (even to the office). The culotte pant is so in right now, especially in a midi length like this jumpsuit. The front is in a faux wrap style with a drawstring in the middle. The V-neck comes pretty high though and the romper/jumpsuit also has a v-neck in the back but since I wore this to work and dinner afterwards, I decided to put a seamless nude/light beige nylon camisole underneath. Unless you saw it from close, you couldn't even tell. Besides the wrap style, culotte pant, 3/4 sleeves, bright floral print and breezy material that is fully lined, the best part about this jumpsuit is the pockets. Love me some pockets. I paired this with simple but glowing makeup, golden-rose filigree chandelier earrings, my blush/white/crystal statement necklace and these black block-heel sandals which I purchased at Target last Spring (a year ago), but they might have these again this year. 

How do you like my new Culotte Jumpsuit?! Do you own one in a similar style and how do you style it?! Now that Easter is around the corner you can totally wear a demure dressy floral jumpsuit like this for Easter Sunday which is an unusual and fun alternative to a 'more typical' pastel or floral dress. Lastly, I do apologize about the photos indoor by my fireplace but it was cold, raining and very very windy - which has usually been the case for us Michiganders these last couple of weeks.

Now join the linkup with Jennie and I. But before you do, I wanted to share my favorite look from last week's Fabulous Friday linkup with Jennie. It belongs to YANA from A Handful of Stories. She shared a a Maxi Puffer Coat in classic black which she styled in a head to toe black outfit with a black leathery mini slip dress over a black tee, black suede OTK boots and a black dainty bow choker. Not everyone can pull it off but Yana is like a model and she can! It is the perfect street-style look. Loved it!!
