Lately I’ve been obsessed with jumpsuits {check out my last Thrifty Threads post} and though they can have a glam look, they’re an effortless one piece to go from travel to a night out. Something like this Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s jumpsuit is a great option. It has an elastic waistband and no buttons, so it’s easy to get in and out of and looks equally gorgeous with flats {as you’re traveling} or strappy sandals {once you reach your destination}.
