Romping Around

(First off, I just want to say how annoying it is when you accidentally publish a post before you're ready. I do it more often than I'd like to say. Sorry)

I don't know if I can pull off the romper look. Last summer I said "no way"! I was anti-romper. I worried it would make me look too short, or like a little kid. But after seeing Emily on The Bachelor this season make it look breezy and oh-so-cute I decided not to write it off just yet. I think it's about finding the right fit and cut and a print that's not to garish or loud. Here is how she wore it. I think her accessories add just the right touch!
A pale lilac sleevless sweater/scarf softens the look. A simple gold chain is all the jewelry she needs. In the evening she dressed it up with a blazer with cuffed sleeves. I loved how she paired it with tall espadrille wedges and yet it doesn't look too short to me! I think what I like about this romper is that it almost looks like separates. I don't like when they are too fitted and tight. This looks loose and effortless.

Here is a look I've put together that I think is a pretty close comparison:
