Rompin’ Around


Romper: Aqua // Shoes: Schutz // Bra: Cosabella // Belt: Linea Pelle // Handcuff Bracelet: Jewelmint // Lipstick: NARS "Funny Face"

There are two things I hardly ever wear: rompers and anything peplum. It isn’t that I don’t like the look, it’s because my torso is so long that as soon as I pull it up, it is insta-uncomfort. So, when I find a jumpsuit/romper that fits me right…it’s like I have to have it…have to, because there must be some sort of cosmic reasoning behind it right?

Love this one from Aqua, not only because it fits me right but also because with the sleeves and the deep V in the front, it’s the perfect cut for accessorizing. I chose to forgo the front snap for a little Cosabella exposure and added my double wrap Linea Pelle belt for a color mix-up. Important thing about belting a romper, placement is key. A lot of these one-piecers have an elastic waistband so you can slip right in (which is why fit is important despite the ease of the look) the belt should cover that seam otherwise you might have a big sloppy mess. Un-Chic. I finished the look with my favorite new shoes because, as it happens, I am a fringe animal and also a pop of lip by NARS. Button me up a little and I am safe for the workplace.
