Clothing brands come and go. Some become household names and others don’t make it as far. But if I had to name one that continues to impress, year after year, it would be Free People. I first discovered this line in Baton Rouge, LA when I was working at Rode’o Boutique. In fact, it was this FP dress that “hooked” Jonathan on our very first date! Each item is so intricately designed that they look like one-of- a-kind finds. Over the years I’ve watched the Free People brand evolve from boho tops and sweaters to a beautifully curated collection of casual, evening, active, and daytime apparel.
This jumpsuit is a quintessential Free People garment! The ornate material looks like a beautiful neck scarf. I just LOVE the vibrant colors against the contrasting tie details. The fit on the other hand is comfortable and cool – suitable for the Puerto Vallarta climate. I slipped a lace bandeau underneath the jumpsuit for moderate coverage. This rendition was perfect for a tropical evening on the town.
Free People garments are an investment but they are worth it. Simply put, they are versatile. This jumpsuit is appropriate for day time or evening wear. Two Saturdays ago, Jonathan and I went out for brunch at Le Marais Bakery (the new Castro location). I swapped the bandeau for a sleeveless turtleneck and the high heel sandals for a pair of wedges. Luckily there was enough room for my “food baby.” Our eyes were definitely too big for our stomachs’! IF you find yourself in the Castro neighborhood at brunch hour, do yourself a favor and order the avocado toast at Le Marais.
