Colorful Romper

Some days I feel super sassy, other days I feel refined and sophisticated. Then there are days I want to curl up in bed and eat chocolate. More often than not, those are usually the same days I’m scheduled for a blog photoshoot. So what do you wear when you’re hot, bloated, and you don’t want anything hugging your belly? My dear you wear a romper. A bright colorful romper to be exact!

After doing some digging I’ve discovered that I only have three posts on this here blog in shorts. You heard me, just three. All you shorts lovers out there, cut me some slack because I’ve only added them to my wardrobe recently. For two years I’ve been actively trying to incorporate shorts into the rotation. This romper has to count right?

This beautiful baby was found on another successful trip to Marshall’s. Although it’s pretty colorful, the bright coral caught my eye. It’s one of my favorite colors to wear in summer. The halter neckline was also appealing since I have few pieces that let me show off my shoulders. One trip to the fitting room and I was sold. The super silky lining feels amazing against the skin. The romper is tiered, making the waistline defined without being too tight. Considering these photos were shot during my period, I seriously appreciated that.

A romper is a great way to ease shorts into any wardrobe. They tend to be less restricting and more forgiving in the abdomen. The beautiful print reminds me of a tropical paradise. Extremely comfortable and affordable at just $16! What say you? Have you added any rompers to your wardrobe? Let me know in the comments below.

Ruffled Jumper

Is it just me or was July was a blur? I spent the first two weeks of July trapped in an arm sling. Not the sexiest accessory during a Heatwave. The last two were devoted to full time mom duties since baby girl is on summer break. Now August is here and I have plenty of summer looks in my closet that haven’t seen sunlight. Thankfully, Philly weather tends to be hot and humid until October so I’ll get to wear them all. Starting with this ruffle jumper.

I originally purchased this for my honeymoon last year. It never made the cut but I was pleasantly surprised when I realized it still fit. I love the Hawaiian vibe of the floral pattern. The sleeves are long and loose and the deep v neckline adds a little drama. Finally, the ruffles along the hip add an unexpected feminine touch.

I instantly felt like I was on vacation when I wore this jumper. I rarely wear shorts so this one piece was perfect. Considering I was bloated and tired the day of the shoot I’m super happy with the final look. I kept my footwear simple with a pair of black sandal wedges. A small cross-body bag completes the entire ensemble.

When the weather is brutally hot, easy breezy is the way to go!
