Let’s talk rompers. They’re the elephant in the room as far as my wardrobe goes. They just do not seem to find their home in my closet no matter how hard I have tried. As lovely as it sounds to seemingly feel like I’m flaunting a dress sans the need to worry about properly crossing my legs (so lady-like, eh?), I have been struggling to get on board.
You really have to have a special figure to rock a romper. By that, I mean your torso is so-called “average” length. If you are anything like me flaunting an exceptionally long torso and stubby legs, you’ll know what I mean. I am pretty decently tall, standing in at 5’ 5”. However, I must have my denim hemmed or invest in a petite or short pair of jeans. In other words, flaunting a romper is generally a no-go because it pulls a little too far in all the wrong places. No. Thank. You.
I am all about feeling confident in what I wear. This stems from a combination of fit + aesthetic. Generally, if something is a little too tight around my tooshy it doesn’t quite meet my standards. We all have our quirks and that is simply mine. If I am not feeling comfortable on the outside it drastically effects my mentality. Already notably shy, this girl has to strut a statement making outfit on the daily to take a step outside my comfort zone. You know, look good feel good? Exactly.
I recently ordered this romper from the Nordstrom sale. I loved it [still *swooning* over the back], K loved it. However, it just was not the perfect fit. I am not a quitter though and I ended up ordering this stunner from Revolve. It is the ultimate combination of comfort + design and I secretly had my fingers + my toes crossed because it screams feminine chic. Basically, it is all my favorites: bows, lace, and neutrals, wrapped up in the most gorgeous piece.
My prayers were answered and this romper fit flawlessly. I am wearing a small for reference! I wore it to a few meetings and an event at Beauty Brands for their Lash Bash Kick-Off Event last Saturday at the Plaza and received such a confidence-boosting load of compliments. If you know me at all, you know I am a sucker for compliments and they are undoubtedly one of the ways to my heart (that and a little bows + lace, of course 😉 ).
P.S. A few more deats on the Beauty Brands Lash Bash: $10.99 mascaras. 60% off. Need I say more? This is one of my favorites and I just ordered this mascara to try! The sale runs through September 19th.
Have a perfect day,
