One Piece, Two Ways || Rompers


Now that my capsule wardrobe experiment has come to an end, I’ve added a couple of new things to my closet and they all have one thing in common: they’re rompers, friends.  The easiest of all summer garb, they require minimal accessories and still look stylish, they’re lightweight and breezy making them perfect for summer.  To make them even sweeter, you can run, jump and play at the park with worrying that your flashing some poor passerby like I do sometimes when I’m wearing a dress.  Dress them up or dress them down, it’s a fool proof summer look:


On the left, is my favorite romper for evening events or dinner with friends.  (It’s from Anthropologie and you can shop all of there rompers here!)  If you have seen me around Studio City any time in the last two weeks during the day, there’s a good chance I’ve been sporting the romper on the right.  It’s my daytime fave! (It’s from Splendid and available here!)

To dress the one on the left up I went with metallic accessories.  To dress the one on the right down, I opted for really dainty jewelry and these Swedish Hasbeen clog sandals.  They’re so fun and quirky and suuuuper comfortable!  Off the subject question, would it be totally boring to be the girl that always has the white manicure?  I’m kind of obsessed.

      Did you check out our 50 Sandals under $50? Topshop had a similar pair that was really inexpensive!

  4. Are some bodies just not meant for rompers? Every time I try one on it is too short in the torso- any recommendations?

  5. Love it Jen…first one is elegant and chic…second one bohemian and cool
