Wore it to work on Thursday, you guys.  And it was awesome.

Thursday was the perfect confluence of jumpsuit-inducing events:  I slept late (read:  did not go to the gym; read:  did not have to pack my clothes in advance; read: had the ability to experiment in the morning); I didn't have any big meetings during the day; and I was feeling like crap from working five 70-hour weeks in a row and needed a little pampering.

Pampering in the form of a one-piece polyester hug.

I'm not really sure what I expected when I wore this to the office.  I felt like I was looking over my shoulder to see if security would come take me away.  "Ma'am, we're going to need you to come with us.  You know why."

But no, no issues.  Nobody* even looked twice.  And wow, was it comfy.  It's no secret I like work clothes that fit like pajamas, and boy did these fit the bill.

*  Except one of my office friends, who told me I looked "seventies fabulous**," and two of my other coworkers who were like, "nice jumpsuit!"

** My mom*** was excited to hear I was wearing a jumpsuit, noting that she had two of them in the actual seventies.

In fact, I liked it so much that I MAY HAVE POSSIBLY worn it on Friday too.  (I was in the DC office Thursday, the NY office Friday.)  The second time, I didn't even bother with a jumpsuit-hiding cardigan, I just strutted around in my full jumpsuited glory.  Strutted right past the chairman of the firm who was wandering the hallways.

No sir, your eyes do not deceive you.  After all, isn't a jumpsuit just another kind of suit?  Really?  Semantically?

*** Speaking of moms, my only awkward moment was walking by the "Mamma Mia" theater:

My jumpsuit was different, though.  Totally different.

Also, I almost wore it Saturday.  But I stopped myself.  Mamma mia.

I hope you all had great weekends!  What did you do?  And don't you wish you'd been wearing a jumpsuit while doing it?  (PS:  peeing was not that hard.)


PPS:  A reader asked me last week why I don't mention which links are affiliate links.  I don't have any reason for not disclosing such a thing --- I figured the link paths were obvious so in-line disclosure was not really needed, but I don't mind adding disclaimers to make affiliate linkage more overt.  I'd love to hear your thoughts on how you expect responsible blogs to handle affiliate linking.  A line at the bottom of the blog post?  A parenthetical after each link?  A short explanation in the blog sidebar?

Incidentally, what are your thoughts on affiliate links?  As a reader, I don't mind them where they add to the content (e.g., "here's what I'm wearing, and here's the same thing or something similar if you like it" -- that's a helpful resource to me as a reader and I don't mind if a blogger may get compensation for making the effort to track those links down).  I personally don't like it where bloggers just dump a bunch of affiliate links in a post with seemingly no other purpose than to drum up revenue.  A wishlist post now and again is fine by me, but too much of that and I start turning off.

So, anyway, thoughts?
