Let's Romp

On Tuesday, I did a post on sundresses & rompers for Miss Ella. I love to see her in a romper. She looks adorable & comfy at the same time. What's not to love about that? But I'd be lying if I didn't have a double standard towards rompers on adults. I guess I've just seen it go bad too many times...

So when I walked into the LOFT on Saturday afternoon to exchange a pair of shorts, I was totally blown away to see the sweet sales lady in a romper - looking fabulous! This is what she was wearing...

Seeing her in looking so cute in the romper, inspired me. I HAD to try it on...

And then, I loved the first one so much, I tried on another one!

Now, I knew that it'd be ridiculous to purchase both. But trust me, I wanted to. I bought the first one, mainly because it's a little dressier & I can see myself wearing it out to dinner & maybe even to work. I'm quite confident that I can dress it up & down. I also ended up buying the necklace that the saleslady was wearing too, because 1) it looked perfect with the romper, 2) it reminds me of the Kendra Scott necklace I've been drooling for over a month, and 3) I had store credit, so why not?

Now let's get real... I just reread this post and I'm acting like I was totally ballsy about this whole thing. That was not the case. I texted the pictures above to several trusted fashion advisors before purchasing. If anyone of them had told me I looked ridiculous, I would've backed out. Taking fashion risks is scary stuff! What do you think? Are you bold enough to try a romper? 


  1. Oh man, I just bought my first romper and am so obsessed. SO comfy and so simple and easy to style. I'm hooked.
