Hello Tuesday and hello to my second favorite piece of clothing for the summer. You can read about my first favorite here. Duh Duh Duhhhh THE ROMPER! I place the romper in my summer favorites category along with maxi dresses because they are:
1. Only one piece of clothing you can throw on with a pair of sandals, wedges or heels and look like you are attempting to look put together. Let’s face it, as a mom I am the last person to get dresses because I am busy getting everyone else ready. There is no mixing and matching of skirts and tops, shorts and tops, jeans and tops etc. One and Done.
2. It is different. What I mean by different is, everyone wears jeans, shorts or a sundress to a party or dinner. A romper stands out!
Here is my ONE problem with rompers that I personally have and that I hear from people all the time. “They are always too short in the rise and make me look like I have camel toe.” Yes, whew I said it!!!! No one wants to be pulling on their clothes all night. I am a HUGE believer that if something does not fit properly, do not buy it. Unless you pay to have it tailored, or have it from somewhere similar to https://shopatalma.com/collections/jumpsuits-rompers it will never fit. In the case of a short romper, you cannot alter the length of the rise. If the rise is too short it will pull up and feel like you have a permanent wedgie.
So, in my need to please all my romper wearers with long torsos and to just find one for myself, I went on a romper hunt. Most of these rompers have a 3-4″ inseam and a longer torso length. I am very tall (5’9/5’10”) so if they can fit this daddy long legs of a torso, they will probably fit yours!
Pardon the I just went running hair do and the toddler rolling around on the floor. I tried the top romper and bottom romper on at Loft and loved them both. I felt like the top romper gave me a bit more of a defined waist and I liked the V cut neckline. The bottom romper was very comfortable and could easily be dressed up or down. Both of these rompers are on sale too!
Blue Romper– I bought this one and will be wearing it for Memorial Day. I will do a separate blog post just for this romper because I am utterly in love with it. Vibrant blue,, soft flutter sleeves and light weight fabric make this romper a true gem for the summer and fall months.
