What DO I Wear: The Yellow Romper

“For me, my favorite trends of summer are lots of color, wedges, rompers and bright lipstick.” ~ Janel Parrish

Shopping For Rompers

I have mentioned before about my albite first world struggles, but you would think as a vertically challenged woman, I would have no problems finding a romper that fits. Alas rompers apparently hate me for no darn reason and I have much better luck with a good ol’ jumpsuit ironically. While I might have to cut a foot off, they at least cover my derriere.70E34143-733F-4A43-BFBA-A3E76F5190E8

For whatever reason, rompers are always way, way, way, to short. To the point everyone is seeing a little to much if you know what I mean. If I am short, wouldn’t they be to long? You would think, but apparently logic was not made when it came to the romper thus I have shied away from them,


I also admit I am not wholly comfortable in them. I have skater thighs and anything cut short or tight, makes me squirm and reach for a blanket to shelter under. We ALL have our trouble spots. and my skater thighs are mine. I am coming to terms and attempting to embrace them, but it has taken twenty-nine LOOOONGGGG years in doing so. Life is a work in progress peeps.


The Romper

I found this Romper at a boutique in Burlington, Vermont. It was SO far outside my comfort zone; color wise, pattern, and the fact that it was a romper and I would be showing leg. Yikes!

//Romper: Ecco// Duster: Anthropologie //Necklace: SeaMilligan Designs //Bracelet: BCBG //Flip-flops: Aldo //Sunnies:Ray-Ban

But, I also loved it because it WAS outside my comfort zone! I know, I know What? I am a Gemini after all! Which means I am confusing and contradictory AF.

My friends convinced me to try it on, and I kinda sorta fell in love with it. But I was still unsure. You know when you want to love something, but you can’t because you have never worn it? That was the internal battle I was going between. I swear rompers confuse the logic right out of me.


I loved how it wasn’t skin tight, but flowy at the leg, almost looking like a dress. I loved the colorful pattern and the silky material. It ties at the neck and has a deep V making it a great choice for a night out. I was still nervous about it being short, but my friends assured me I wasn’t;t giving anyone a show. Thank the lord for honest friends!


Styling it

I sound like a broken record, but like most everything in my closet, this romper is very versatile. I have worn it to go clubbing, as well as to walk around the Harbor Islands in Boston.

For this look, I went for a more casual OOTD, pairing the romper with a long white duster and my blush flip-flops. I went all out with the bling, wearing my staples, but also adding a SeaMilligan Design necklace that is quite colorful, matching the vibrant palette in the brightly neon romper.


Whether it is pairing it with flip-flops or my blush stilettos, I love this romper and I have been rocking it quite a bit this summer. Fashion is about feeling comfortable while at the same time pushing boundaries. You never want to stay stagnate, and while I am all about being comfortable, sometimes pushing past those walls can lead to the most surprising, but equally rewarding results. It might have taken years, but I am so happy I bought this.


What do you think of this look? DO you wear rompers?
