Today we are sporting two of my favorite things: stripes and jumpsuits! A couple of years ago, you would have never heard those two words come out of my mouth in a positive way, but you could say I'm more open-minded these days. If you've been following along on my journey for the past couple of years, you will have probably noticed that I blossomed from this girl who only wore form-fitting, black clothing to a woman who will try just about anything—and in any color. I'm really glad my style has evolved to be more adventurous, but I am still trying to push my boundaries even more. On days where I am not doing blog things, you could find my style to be a little more reserved and monochromatic, sort of like the old days. However, as fall approaches, I am planning looks for every single day of the week, and I don't want any boring outfits making the cut.

This look from Fashion Nova Curve is definitely on my fall list as it's the perfect transitional outfit for the in-between weather us Chicagoans are about to experience. I created this ensemble around this Floristic Journey Kimono because I loved the stripes and the color combination. I wasn't exactly sure what I would wear under it—because it is so versatile—and after thinking I was going to wear a dress, I zeroed in on this Avalon Jogger Jumpsuit, and determined it was perfect. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the ankles on the jumpsuit and I guess I still don't know if I love that detail, but I think it works. I was worried about the ankles making me look shorter than I was, but I don't really see it being that big of an issue! I can't wait to paid the Floristic Journey Kimono and the Avalon Jogger Jumpsuit with more looks, respectively. Y'all know I love versatile pieces! If you adore this look, you can get it for 15% off with the code "NATCITY" when you shop Fashion Nova!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 3X in the Floristic Journey Kimono, which is one size larger than my usual size, and it fits perfectly. I sized up in the kimono because I wasn't sure if the arms would be tight or not. I could have ordered a 2X, as I feel that it runs pretty true to size! I am wearing a size 2X in the Avalon Jogger Jumpsuit, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly!
