Romper & Shoes: c/o Blush Destin
As I turn my closet over into summer mode I am on the HUNT for some serious summer clothes. About this time of year I always find myself saying things like, “time to get my summer clothes out” or “gosh, I really need some summer clothes.” I understand that this doesn’t register and probably never will register with the men in my life- from my husband to my Dad… they will never fully understand how important it is to buy new clothes with each season and update my closet. And for the record, I should have turned my closet over about two months ago haha! I wasn’t expecting such an intense heat index as I am used to snow in May being from Colorado. Regardless, it’s safe to say that I can probably send all of my fleece jackets and sweaters back to Colorado, forever. In the meantime, I am focusing on stocking my closet with airy rompers and dresses like this one!
Although I usually stray away from the strapless or off-the-shoulder structure, I decided to give it a go and I was so pleasantly surprised by this romper in particular. In that past, I feel like strapless tops, rompers and dresses constantly fall. Furthermore, the off-the-shoulder trend is SO cute but all I’ve ever gotten from that is the inability to move my arms without suddenly wearing a turtle neck… you all know what I am talking about! With this romper however, the elastic is tight at the top diminishing the chances of it falling. Furthermore, it accomplishes the off-the-shoulder look but you simply slip your arms in from the top as opposed to the sleeves being connected by the elastic. This allows for full arm movement without the romper moving one bit. I am definitely obsessed and love the flowy, relaxed feel that is accomplished by the floral print and flounce detailing. We are headed to Dallas next week for a wedding and I am very excited! I already plan on packing this little number to wear during the day. I think it’s just perfect for some day shopping, lunch, and walking the dogs (of course they are coming along!) while remaining cool in the Texas climate.
Finally, I am so happy to let you all know that I’ve teamed up with one of my favorite locally owned boutiques, Blush Destin, to bring you on-trend looks throughout the summer.
