R is for romper

you hated them when you were little...right? how do I feel about them now?



um. i want one. 


the best thing about rompers is layering them with different things and making them look even cuter! which means if you get the right color then you can wear them for summer AND fall.


For instance, the whole tights under the romper dealio

yeah i know...i want those boots too. 

another look with the romper I like is the blazer




but lemme guess, you have the classic problem of: 
"they look so good on a hanger, and no-so-good not on a hanger"

yeah, i've been there...trust me.  I feel like body type totally matters with these suckers.

if you have a long torso...im sure your thinking.."whhaa?" yeah thats because these things always look good on you. 
if you're petite like me then listen up: I've found that the banded waist rompers look the best. 

when you're at the store I recommend this...ONLY look at the different styles of rompers (high waisted, where the drawstring is, V or swoop neck, length of the straps) grab a bunch of different styles (even if you hate the print) then go try them on. only look at how they fit you not the overall look. This way you'll be able to tell which style looks best on you and go from there. 

it saves time so you can go stuff your face since your new romper hides that food baby of yours now.
 eh kinda...depends on the style of the romper. 
Lets call it the i-can-get-away-with-eating-anything romper style.

  9. I never realized the verstaility of rompers, the tghts underneath for winter is fantastic. the blazer look really ups the fancy. the drapey one is one I would look out for, it seems most forgiving :)
