I Swore I’d Never: Frilly & Floral Jill Stuart Jumper

Do I have a thing for jumpsuits? If you were to sneak into my closet and rifle through my clothes, you would think not. But here’s my secret: I love them, but own only one. I’m pretty sure it’s the simplicity of the outfit: one piece and you’re out the door. It also falls solidly(…)
