Rompin' Around

Who else doesn’t want summer to end? Although I kind of wilt in this 90+ degree weather we’ve been getting frequently in Portland, I love when it’s still warm well through the month of September and into the early weeks of October. Summer clothing is my favorite; I get a little melancholy when it becomes time to trade my crop tops, shorts and sandals for bulky sweaters, long pants and rain boots. But looking at the upcoming forecast, summer is sticking around for a while longer. Woo hoo!
During the warmer season, I take full advantage of breaking out silhouettes that I can’t really wear in the fall/winter. One piece in particular I’ve worn a ton this summer is this vibrant printed romper – I purchased this little number on my vacation in Hawaii back in April from a boutique in Kona. I’m always drawn to bright colors and bold prints and this romper caught my eye immediately. Rompers can be tricky for me because of my body proportions, they rarely fit me right, but I optimistically tried it on and it was a perfect fit. That’s the best feeling.
What I love about this piece is how versatile it is. I’ve worn this romper from day to night all throughout the summer – it looks adorably sporty with sneakers or casually-chic with flat sandals for all my daytime activities. Then I’ll swap my flats for a pair of platforms, throw on some jewelry, and I’m ready for a night out. It’s lightweight, loose in all the right places and so comfortable, but is also eye-catching with it’s exotic graphic and figure-flattering with a low neckline and elastic at the waistline. It’s also a perfect piece for travel. You can bet I’m bringing this with me on my next tropical vacation (location TBD, planning now lol).
