Much like C.S. Lewis’s conversion to Christianity (“When we set out I did not believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and when we reached the zoo I did.”), I became an instant convert to the idea of a jumpsuit a couple of months ago. I blame J. Crew, as I do for many things in my life:


Yes, I know they’re very fashion-y. Yes, I know they’re not the most practical thing to wear and actually use the restroom in. But much like C.S. Lewis, I accept their fallacies wholeheartedly.

An indie designer released a knit version recently that is promised to be both fast and comfy, and I really think I may need to try it out.



Thus endeth the parable of the jumpsuit. May Bernina have mercy upon us.
