Romper Love

I bought the striped romper several years ago at Old Navy, but I never really wore it. In the past weeks, I have seen a lot of rompers on blogs, and I remembered that mine was tucked away in the back of my closet. So I decided to give it a try!

Romper 3

I decided to add a second layer by wearing my white vest. And to add a bit of color, I carried my Desigual bag. It’s light and therefore the perfect travel bag so it made it into my travel wardrobe. Plus, it’ll add just a bit of color to my mainly neutral travel outfits. 

Romper 2
Outfit details: Romper Old Navy old (I really like this vertically-striped romper), white vest old (I like this white denim vest), Desigual bag (similar), Birkenstock Gizeh sandals.

I like the romper for a casual outfit, even though it’s quite a bit shorter than what I usually wear. It’s definitely reserved for very casual outings or vacations...

Questions: Do you own a romper? If so, how do you like it?

  1. I really never considered buying a romper as an older woman---but this one is definitely perfect! And now since I've learned never to say never---I may join the crowd!
    Love the white vest over it---I could do that!

    1. Thanks, Jodie! I was definitely hesitant as evidenced by the fact that I bought the romper but then didn't wear it for a few years... But I'm glad I gave it a chance! :-)

  2. Good thing you pulled that romper out of the closet - it looks great on you! I love how you layered it with a white vest. I know for me, when I wear a romper, I am more comfortable wearing it with a second layer (maybe the extra layer gives me a boost of confidence to rock the romper!) I also love how you paired it with your white Birkies, a great summer look!

  8. I like rompers except when I have to use the lady's room, then it becomes a pain. :) Love this striped one and you styled it well with denim! I'd love to see you share this look on my Midweek Inspo Linkup!

  10. I have a love-hate relationship with rompers - although I love how easy it can be styled like your striped one!

    The 2nd installment of my festival style campaign with UK-brand BOOHOO is still live at the blog - come check it out and lemme know what you think!

    Happy Weekend!

  14. This romper suit is so cute and really suits you. Not sure why you don't show your legs off a bit more often - you have great pins!

  24. I like your striped romper - I always shy away from them - but I really like how you styled it! I might have to consider it again.
