Outfit of the Day: Holding On


I finally hemmed up the jumpsuit from H&M last week. I had the seamstress bring it up 3", and I still have to wear them with my 5" Danys. I find that most of their pants and dresses are not made for the 5'1" and under set. Then again I am bigger then the normal 4'11" girl. At H&M I'm a size 8, comfortably, with allowance for my hips and bust. So if I really want slacks or a dress I have to watch where the waist fits and how long everything is- if it's worth the time and money to fix it for myself.

I just couldn't pass this jumpsuit up. It fit like a dream through the shoulders, and waist. I love the graphic impression of blossoms and the flutter sleeves of course. I'm all for easy cleaning and since it's poly I can just throw it in the wash and wear. 



Ha ha, I had to crop out some of my plants. I am so embarrassed, what is the opposite of having a green thumb? Rotten? Ha ha, I either water them too much or not enough. Thank goodness cacti can take my abuse.



This is not mine :) I found this flower still holding on to summer in my mom's courtyard. Last of the season, I just love the color.

Thanks for reading and I appreciate all the lovely comments you guys leave behind.

  1. Hey Albee Lucky! I found your blog through oomph! Your seamstress did a great job on the jumpsuit. I'm the exact opposite of you...TALL! So the length is always an issue for me. HAHAHA But again you look great and that rose is an awesome color...PEACH? Very beautiful. Have a fun weekend.

  3. SassyUptownChic- Lucky duck, I can always use a little bit more of length myself :)
    I would say that the rose is peach? It was lovely to look at, but had no scent. Thanks for visiting me and checking out my blog. xo-Albee

  6. oomph- Thanks. I was thinking 70's because it is a jumpsuit after all. It also reminded me of something I would have seen on old episodes of "I Love Lucy". (Shrug)either way I adore it and feel so lucky to have scored it at H&M. xx- Albee
