Romper Rendezvous

3:4 sleeve v-neck floral romper

When it comes to florals, bolder is usually better in my book. I love how this floral print is based in black because it makes it that much easier to dress up for a night out! I don’t typically wear that much black in the summer months, but I always gravitate towards darker pieces when I’m getting dressed for a girls night out. Come September, I’ll probably be pairing this romper with black sandals and a darker clutch, but for a summer night on the town, I kept my shoes light and my clutch bright.

I’ve mentioned this before, but I always err on the side of over-dressed when I go out. And I don’t mean overly dressed up, I mean that in the sense of more clothes than not. I’m sure that comes as no surprise considering most of my outfits are pretty conservative when it comes to showing skin. I love to layer, I don’t like to feel overexposed, and I usually feel self conscious when things are too tight. (Have you ever seen me in a pencil skirt? NOPE.)

Considering I usually look like I’m channeling my inner librarian when I go out at night, it can definitely be a little bit disheartening if I compare my outfits to what other girls are wearing. (Remind me to tell you about the time I wore jeans and a blazer out in LA… I looked like a soccer mom amidst a sea of barely-there Herve Leger.) I mean, I wore a lace midi skirt to a 5am dance club just this past weekend, so apparently I don’t learn from my mishaps. To say that I stood out like a sore thumb among a whole lot of body-con dresses would be an understatement. But hey, I’d rather wear what I like, rather than feel like I’m wearing a costume.

Enter the romper. Sure, it makes going to the bathroom a bit of a process and you usually have to bring a friend, but luckily I’ve got a large bladder. (#tmi) A romper is always one of my go-to going-out outfits during the warmer months. This particular style is short, but I usually feel comfortable showing some leg if the style isn’t too tight. The breezy shorts, mixed with the long sleeves and deep-V-neck is just the right mix of feeling subtly sexy for me.

    I LOVE this romper! Especially since it’s based in black! And I definitely understand your going out dilemma… school starts back up soon and I’ve been trying to figure out what to buy without looking like a grandma, because body-con isn’t really my thing either!

    I love this romper especially since its black w/ floral (my inner new yorker). I know exactly how you feel when it comes to going out on the weekends. My new go-to is matching set of skirts and crop tops. I am still much more covered than others but whatever we just have to own it haha! I rather be dressed nicely than over exposed.

    Happy Wednesday (ugh can it be Friday already…)!

    I bought a Yumi Kim romper a while ago and really really loved the print and the style, but they’re not made for us taller girls 🙁 Looks super cute on you, though! Also- this is the first time I’ve stopped by your site in a couple of weeks, and I love the rebrand! Looks amazing!
