Vintage Floral Jumpsuit


Earlier in the month I attended the annual garden party fundraiser for the Belle Isle Conservancy, located at one of my favorite spots on Belle Isle - the conservatory gardens and greenhouse. The purpose of the event was to raise money for projects to benefit the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory, an amazingly beautiful place in the warmer weather, but my favorite secret hideaway once the winter months come.

In my opinion, garden parties should be fun and full of whimsy, so when deciding on what to wear, I knew I wanted my outfit to mimic that tone. And nothing says fun and whimsical like a vintage, floral, wide leg, cropped, jumpsuit.

Let's be honest. This jumpsuit is a little ridiculous. It reminds me of the curtains in my grandma's house that she's had since the 60s. Maybe that's partly why I love this. Maybe it's also because I love a good bargain and this jumpsuit was purchased in a vintage bundle at an estate sale where I got 5 pieces for twenty dollars (check out the skirt I scored from the same bundle here). But mainly, I love this ridiculous piece of clothing because it's whimsically unique. And that's exactly the type of outfit to wear to a garden party.
