Holly’s posts for her “Want of the Week” always result in some sort of impromptu online shopping binge. While it always starts out with the item that she wants, it usually ends up in me clicking the “you may also like” category at the bottom of the shopping pages (these online retailers know me too well…).
This week I ended up searching all things related to rompers. Don’t ask me how I got there from the Panache set. Regardless, searching/researching I found rompers you can wear out of the house, rompers you can dress up to become outerwear, and rompers that you really should just keep behind closed doors. Regardless, I need them all and I need them now.
I scoffed at this trend when it resurfaced a few years ago. But now, there’s no escaping it, and to be quite honest, I’m totally okay with it. Embrace the trend by pairing this loosely-chic romper with a fitted white blazer for a sharp day-time look. But surrrprise! It’s made from lycra and spandex so you are totally justified while falling asleep in it after a long day.
I still don’t know how I’d wear this, all I know is that I need to wear it. Clearly suitable as nightwear with it’s camisole styled top, the shorts complete the look with fun pleats. Even paired with a blazer, the shorts may be a bit too short for me to wear out. It’s not something I would rule out as outerwear, but definitely something to toy with.
Finally, this Journelle piece is all sorts of adorable. It has my favorite combination of black and pastel pink, very reminiscent of my days in the ballet studio. And the attached garter straps give you the opportunity to really sex it up or keep it casual.
What do you think? Are you on the romper train? Do they work with your body type? Has this post sparked a shopping spree?
