Rompers for Summer

August 3, 2016

One of my favorite things to wear during the summer is a romper.

It is SO hot in Dallas that I literally break a sweat if I’m outside for more than 5 minutes at a time.  Seriously, it feels like you’re walking into an oven when you walk outside.

Wearing a romper, especially a comfy one with an open back (like these two!), helps keep me just a little bit cooler.  Plus, they are so easy to throw on and seriously cut down on the time it takes to get ready.  The only con, as every girl knows, is that you have to get totally naked when you’re going to the bathroom.  It’s not so bad if you’re at your house, a friend’s house, or a nice place, but when you’re at a hole-in-the-wall bar that looks like the floor hasn’t been mopped in YEARS it’s a totally different story.  That’s just a minor detail in the scheme of things though.  Simply put, rompers are the shit and you’ll be seeing quite a few of them over the next few weeks if you follow me on instagram.

These two are up first.  This white lace romper is so cute.  The open back detail is my favorite part, it’s so pretty.  It would be so cute for a bachelorette beach day (mind is always on this wedding ha!) or a day date or just to run errands.  OR for an Olympics-themed party.  SIDE BAR: I am SO excited for the Olympics to start!! I love watching gymnastics, it’s my absolute favorite.  My old coach is GABBY DOUGLAS’s coach so it’s been really cool to follow her training going into her second Olympics and see pictures and videos of my old gym and see my old coaches on TV.  I hope she does well.  I’m also excited to watch Michael Phelps’ comeback.  What are y’all most excited to watch?!

This red/orange romper is so comfortable.  It’s not the most flattering romper I’ve ever worn, but the comfort factor trumps that for me.  This is going to sound so weird (and I said this to Angie Garcia when she was doing her magic behind the camera), but I feel like a little toddler wearing a playsuit when I’m wearing this romper.  And I don’t mean that in a bad way! I think I feel like that because the romper is pretty shapeless so there isn’t really any fabric right next to my body and nothing is tight. The open back is a really fun detail, and so is the color.  I was immediately drawn to it when I saw it in the store, it’s so vibrant and fresh.

I’d have to say that these are two of the greatest rompers for summer.  More pics and shopable links to everything below!

    I am obsessed with that white romper on you! I love to pair a romper with heels for a #legsfordays night out look that feels more playful than a bodycon dress and more dressed up than jeans. I’m with you on the undressing to pee though…it’s not always ideal /:
