5 ways to wear a jumper

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Hi again friends!! I have been slacking pretty good on blogging lately and I have no real good excuse.  Life has been happening and I have not been blogging :( But I am back in action (for now) and I want to share with you the versatility I discovered with a little black jumper of mine. When I was little jumpers were all the rage! I had plaid, stripes cordory, but you really don't see them much anymore. When I got my big girl job I had buy some professional clothing but, I didn't have much money. As usual I turned to the Goodwill and I still find most of my work clothes there! This jumper "jumped" out at me because I immediately saw it's versatility. However, I took it home, wore it once and shoved it to the back of my closet (for no good reason). I recently discovered it just hanging out and all my once great visions for this garment came back to me. So, I am here to share them with you!! I hope you enjoy my 80's style jumper and the ways I have choose to modernize it!! (By the way I will be drawing this out into a few posts to build anticipation, and because there are so many darn pictures)

I really like how you put a shirt over it. I need to do that with my little black dress sometime.

Thanks Gals!! Once I started brainstorming I came up with a ton of ways to wear it. I have a blue pin stripe one I need to bust out too!
