Four Ways - Rompers




One of the best things about summer is wearing easy, comfy outfits. No more layers, no more worrying about the cold. A simple way to accomplish this? A romper of course! But how do you get away with wearing a romper without looking like you belong on Romper Room?
  • Since we're not quite into the hot days of summer just yet, I've paired the romper with tights. This works well for a dressier look, finished with a pair of high heeled oxfords and my favorite shrunken blazer.
  • It doesn't get any easier than this! Pair your romper with classic Chucks or Keds, throw on a pair of fun sunglasses and you're ready to go.
  • Staying just this side of too cutesy, pair the romper with a fitted cardigan and matching sandals for a girly look.
  • A day of flea market shopping in the sun? Martinis at lunch with your girl friends? Just match your romper with comfy wedge sandals and a wide brimmed hat and you're off!

Wow, you look great in all four ways. I really need a ropmer for summer!

I was planning to make one last year, in navy blue loop terry with an anchor on the backpocket. I couldn't find loop terry in that colour and that made me so mad I forgot about the whole thing.

I'm really really sorry about you cat :(

Is that blazer a brand called Farah? I picked one up from the little boys section of a thrift store here [Long Island] and I swear its the same exact thing.

Great ideas, my romper is super cutesy (lilac purple and covered in tulips!) So I'll try these out and hopefully I will get to wear that silly thing!

Thanks for your comments! I'm just taking it one day at a time right now. It gets better everyday.

Alex: No way! I checked my blazer and it is the same brand. What are the chances of that?!

love the black hat! where's it from?

Sally Jane said...

Thank you again for your comments!

Wendy: Yes, thrift stores would be a great place to look for rompers. They were really popular in the early 90's so you find a lot of them at Goodwill or Salvation Army.

Fashion Tidbits: The black hat is from Forever21 (I bought it about 2years ago).

I found a really cool white romper with embroidery at the top..but the problem is its too long and i feel like it looks like im wearing a big diaper baby thing when i roll up the bottom... Have any suggestions?

Sally Jane said...

carrie: Sounds like you found a really cute one! I've had the same problem with some of the vintage rompers that I've found. for mine I think I'm going to try hemming the legs. Just cut of a couple of inches from each leg, turn the seam under and sew. If I end up doing it to mine I'll take photos and post them, step by step.

Jeanne said...

So cute! I've been holding off on getting a romper just yet (but I'm mighty tempted!). You look darling, and your styling is awesome. I really love these four way posts!

I'm usually not a fan of rompers, but I love how you paired it with a red cardigan. Too cute!
