Ahh. Guys, I love being tall, but I have spent years being jealous of all of the cute rompers that my friends can seemingly just throw on and have a complete outfit with ease.
Between my long legs and even longer torso (again, not complaining, I swear!) I have never once ever tried on a romper that remotely fit me…until now. Seriously, trying them on in stores was such a discouraging experience that I started to hate it more than jean shopping (until I found these beauties!)
I fell in love with this pretty spring/summer floral romper as soon as I saw it. The flowy shape of it and the cute bow on the side were details I just couldn’t ignore…but I did hold my breath while I waited for it in the mail, trying not to get my hopes up about yet another failed romper try-on experience.
I was honestly so surprised when I tried it on and it fit that I assumed I must have had too much wine that night, and would re-visit it the next day! Clearly I had lost faith in these little garments.
Now I’ve been wearing it in total excess, to everything from Dalton’s birthday dinner to Sunday strolls around Lincoln Park! The colors are so pretty and light, and the flowy style keeps me from getting to hot while walking around on these hotter summer days.
I only wish I’d had this in the Spring! I paired it with my favorite brown block heel sandals and loved the way it pulled the look together.
Right around the same time I got the romper, I received this beautiful necklace from Grace + Hudson, a new local Chicago jewelry retailer with the prettiest pieces! I think it would be so great for wedding/bridesmaid season or even as a gift.
Grace + Hudson also donates a portion of every sale to charity, and I think her story is crazy badass. She went from being a lawyer to a jewelry designer! You can read more about her story right here.
If you happen to bump into me in Chicago between now and fall weather, there is a high chance you’ll be seeing me in this exact outfit 😉
