One Romper to Wear to Ten Outings

524813_in_xl

Rompers, like dresses, have a certain easiness to them in that they are a complete outfit. As much as I like to play dress up, there are days where I prefer to keep things simple. I like this particular romper because it’s chambray and I’ve had a long-standing committed relationship with chambray (one I suspect is for life), it’s casual, but can be dressed up and it has great details, like the drawstrings in the front and back. When choosing a pricier item, I always think about the uses and years I will have a particular item. Here are 10 different occasions I would wear this to.

  1. An afternoon picnic date
  2. Brunch with girlfriends
  3. Weekend errands-running
  4. A day at the farmers’ market
  5. A BBQ gathering
  6. A casual birthday party
  7. A music festival
  8. On a bike ride
  9. A movie outing
  10. Stepping out for ice cream

Do you like rompers? Do you wear them for only specific events or places?

Adding More Green to My Wardrobe

Much like my home, green is not a dominant color in my wardrobe. I think it’s a great color, but the only green items I’ve really ever purchased were an army green (jacket) and this gorgeous Indian sari inspired wrap skirt that I’ve had for a while now and still love. (Oh, and I once bought a beautiful green silk blouse in Paris.) However, I’d like to add more green to my wardrobe. I’ve done some online shopping for inspiration. Here are some of my favorite finds. Do you have any colors you gravitate towards? Does green play a prominent role in your wardrobe?
