23 Aug Turning Heads #linkup- Wearing a Romper Over 40
Here we are, nearly the end of August. Hard to believe, as it seems I was just at the beach! Today I styled a rust printed romper from HM by wearing a crisp, white fitted blazer, a unique suede statement necklace from Zara, and my favorite gladiator sandals. Just the name of the garment, “Romper” connotes a memory of childhood for me, with the TV program, ” Romper Room”. This show was from 1953 ( before my time) to 1994, and created basically a real kindergarten, with students saying the ‘Pledge of Allegiance” and then going into the classroom.
Lets just say, for the sake of the clothing, and today’s trends it is a “romper”. I loved this print, a rust and white interesting print I wanted to wear. Thinking of it as just an attached tank top to shorts, it served me well, when putting together this look. Why not? I added a white blazer ( HM) to give it more of a stream lined look, and a look that creates a “built in cami” and shorts. I added a little bit of height with the wedges that are about 1 inch in height, giving it a more dressed look than a pair of sneakers. I also added a cognac Rebecca Minkoff bag and a rosewood watch by Jord for added complimentary color.
