A Summer Seersucker Jumpsuit & Why I Share My Personal Style // @missmollymoon

Summer is in full swing here in the south…and I’m not a big fan of shorts. I KNOW. For some reason, I would rather wear jeans than shorts. Even in the summer. When I saw this cute little seersucker jumpsuit, I snatched it up immediately as a hot weather alternative to putting on jeans. And if you follow along on Instagram, you know that I’m not quite sure about it yet. It’s so comfortable and a perfect piece for the hot summer weather…but I’ve got to be honest, I’m just not sure that I like how it looks on me. But, when I posted it on Instagram, you lovely people’s feedback told me to go for it, so here it is.

Isn’t that just the way things go? We can all be so hard on ourselves! I know that I’m extremely hard on myself when it comes to body image, but knowing doesn’t stop me finding something negative about the way that I look. It’s the worst habit, and something I struggle with most days when I get dressed. But when I decided to start sharing style posts, I chose to do it because I wanted to share from the perspective of someone who isn’t built to wear a lot of the “trendy” stuff.

Blogging wasn’t around when I was in middle school & high school, but when you’re young you want to be able to wear what’s “in” and it’s a struggle as a young girl to understand that everyone can’t do that. I was never built for what was “in” and I remember how frustrating that was to shop in the women’s section as a teen. I have always been very athletic, but it took me a long time to accept that I would never be a girl that could wear anything I wanted.

Of course, now that I’m in my late twenties, I have developed a style that feels like it’s really me. I love that my body is strong and I love that I am athletic. I’m grateful for the muscles that I built playing softball for 16 years, tennis & soccer through college, doing yoga, and so many other things. I also still get frustrated in dressing rooms when something that I really want to love just doesn’t work for my body. I know I’ll always be that way, and I’ll continue to share things that I’m unsure about in my style posts. Because sometimes we’re too hard on ourselves.

  • Girl, I’m with you. I’ve had days where I just completely second guess this whole “outfit” blogging thing that we do. Is it weird? Will people think I’m just self-centered? They’ve all crossed my mind. But then I go out and someone will say, “Girl I love what I saw on your Instagram today!” or “Can you tell me where you got that top that you put on the blog last week?” That’s when I know it’s all worth it!! Just stick with what makes you happy 😉

    • Right? I looked at these photos when I edited them and just thought…WHAT am I doing?! But I decided to do it anyway. We got this!

  • This jumpsuit is the cutest thing on you! I struggle with this too. I used to be relatively skinny throughout high school and college and as soon as I graduated, it seems like I gained weight over night so sometimes I’m still struggling to find what works best on my new body type. You’re a beautiful girl and I love your style so keep it up 🙂

  • Joscelyn | Wifemamafoodie

    Such a cute jumpsuit!! I’m a sucker for stripes too! I love how you could dress it up or wear it casually..those are the perfect outfits to me!

  • Ashley Zeal

  • seersucker is so perfect for summer. love this look and jumpsuit!

  • Anna Hubbard

    Cool jumpsuit – you DEFINITELY rock it!

  • I love this jumpsuit on you and I absolutely love your post. You’re honesty is so relatable and refreshing. I struggled/still struggle with my body image and I know what you mean about not having the body to wear ‘trendy’ clothes. Over the years I’ve learned that at the end of the day, being skinny and wearing trendy clothes won’t make you any happier. I dieted HARD and even had liposuction and I still find myself sitting on my closet floor crying because I get so frustrated. It’s all about a strong mindset which you definitely have. I could learn a lot from you! Thanks for sharing <3

    Michelle | She’s Not So Basic

    • Thanks SO much! And you’re so right–we’ve all got to be happy with ourselves. But, I still get frustrated and can’t stand trying on a lot of clothes. I’m definitely trying to love my body type more and be less hard on myself 🙂

  • I’ve been looking for a jumpsuit like this! So cute on you. I can definitely relate to you and why you blog. I’ve never had a thin body type and definitely can’t wear a lot of things most bloggers wear. It’s frustrating but also nice to stand out

    • I totally agree–I love seeing different body types in the blogging world!

  • Sarah Tripp

    That’s the perfect jumpsuit for summer! Love your chic bag, too

  • Amanda Nicole Hughes

    It looks great on you! Love me some seer sucker.

  • I really love this jumpsuit! I’ve actually been looking for one like this for a while. I think it’s so pretty on you!

  • thesophiadiaries

    This is an amazing post and thanks for sharing! Couldn’t agree with what you said more <3

  • In serious agreement! Loving this look on you too, gf!

  • I personally love the jumpsuit on you – it looks so effortless & chic!

    I can understand that feeling on the opposite end lol. Even now I struggle finding womens clothes that fit me because I have no hips and am so petite. I think everyone has times that they get frustrated when something you want doesn’t fit right! I love though that everyone is unique and we all get to showcase our own styles!!

    • Yes! We can all be hard on ourselves, but we’re all unique and that’s a great thing!

  • I feel like I’m too short for jumpers. I’ll have to try one out and see. This one is cute.

  • I have this same jumpsuit and absolutely love it!

  • Naomi Trevino

    You go girl! Strong is beautiful. We all have our things we wish we could change but we are different for a good reason. You look beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

  • Alisha Taneja

    Wow ! You look so amaziing 🙂

  • I think that it why I really did not embrace fashion into I got older because was frustrated with the lack stylish and quality clothing for plus size woman. I learn not to be hard on my body.

  • Carly Ned

  • OMG I have the same jumpsuit! Old Navy?!

  • That jumpsuit is seriously the cutest!

  • Elly Leavitt
