What's particularly exciting about jumpsuits when it comes to slow and sustainable fashion? Since we're all keeping a minimal wardrobe here (read: 5 Reasons Why You Should Have a Minimal Wardrobe) we're keeping purchases at a minimum. We're keeping our material goods at a minimum. So, logically following the fact that we clearly own very little clothing now, the beauty and art of fashion lies in how to assemble your mini closet in a way that constantly keeps you stimulated. So when a piece is made to be so convertible and re-worn in so many different ways, you know you've found a major key alert.*
*While ya'll know I'm not a DJ Khaled fan, the fact that he played Qur'an while live-snapping his child's birth (leaving questions about why anyone would live snap their child's birth aside) is making me (slowly) reconsider. Because that was hella cute. I may or may not have just given a mini appreciation note. But keep this between you and I for now. Shhh.
Ethics aside (like they do in politics), why does Hoda like this jumpsuit in particular? For someone who's mind is still asleep while my eyes are blankly staring at my clothing rack (and let's be honest, probably already running late--s/o to my Persian roots that have no concept of time), I sometimes need the morning game of hurry-the-hell-up-and-put-something-on-why-did-you-think-it-was-a-good-idea-to-stay-up-all-night-again to be simplified. Aka when this jumpsuit becomes #bae -- a two-second fix that makes it look like I tried.
*Also another secret that I need you to keep between the two of us.

This one I grabbed is in Kirana print--a print that traditionally is meant to inspire bright stars and full moons--signs of tranquility and peace because God knows I need constant reminders to practice self-care and stop running around all the time.
Speaking of stopping running around (not that I'm helping my case at all right now)-- a bit of traveling is in the works! If you're in the area, come say hey!
