A Bodysuit Goes a Long Way

So I have a confession. I love bodysuits. It’s basically my uniform anytime I’m going out to meet friends for drinks or to day party the day away. I have this one off the shoulder black leotard that I practically wear once a week. Good thing I bought two. The best thing about a great leotard or bodysuit is that it doubles as underwear. Yes, that’s the secret my friends. I hate washing clothes and the way I know it’s time to do laundry is when I run out of underwear. Which always seems to happen like clockwork every 3 weeks. [Note to self — buy more underwear]. Usually being the lazy person I can be when it comes to laundry, I just go out and buy more underwear but alas I’m trying to be more of a responsible adult these days. So now on those days when I have nothing left, I just throw on 1 of the 8 bodysuits I have and call it a day. Two birds, one stone.

GET THE LOOK


I practically lived for American Apparels’ leotards. So sad they went outta business because they were literally the best for basics. So before they shuttered their doors I bought 1 black long sleeve turtleneck leotard, one black short sleeve and long sleeve round neck leotard, one burgundy and one nude leotard and then I purchased this one from Shopbop as well. They are all basic cotton material but this leotard from Zara is my first foray into the elevated leotard and now I’m HOOKED. I’ve got my eye on this silky number and this off the shoulder button up one as well. I’m pretty sure by summer I will be knees deep in bodysuits and I ain’t complaining. They are so perfect oh and ASOS has a whole collection of them from long sleeve to sleeveless! You don’t have to worry about ironing them. They look great with mom jeans and high waisted wide legged denim (which I’ve also been collecting, check out my Try-On Haul Video). And then there’s that whole not needing to wash underwear bit too. I’m gonna be in them for the rest of the year so just get used to it. You probably won’t even know (but I’ll be sure to call your attention to it cause that’s just the kinda girl I am). Oh and one time for these micro mini bags. I really love a colorful small bag, especially when it’s the perfect shade of green.

Go forth and bodysuit it up beloveds before the rest of the world catches on.

      Yeah I know but its just not the same and they definitely don’t offer all the same things they did before.

    I love a good bodysuit and the one you have on looks vintage! I like how you paired the sassy mules with the outfit.
