Romp(er) Into Summer

When I was a little girl, growing up in the seventies, rompers were a really big deal. Adults and children (of the female persuasion) could be seen enjoying summer in these super adorable one-piece items. Part short, part top, the only downside to the romper was dealing with the whole bathroom situation (you pretty much get naked every time you need to use the ladies). The romper can take you from day to night and all you have to do is change your shoes. I was so excited when they came back in style a couple of years ago, and am super happy that they are still in fashion. Here’s a look at some of my favorites on the market now.

Dolan hoodie romper $97 available at Shop Bop
Perfect for a day at the beach! I like that it has a hood because it can get windy on the water.

    My mom made me a Fushia Terry Cloth romper back in the 70’s and it was one of my favorite things to wear. Not sure I can still pull it off but maybe I’ll have to try one out!
    Love you girlie!
