So sorry I missed Friday’s post. My niece Makaila was over for 3 days and we got busy! So, today I am sharing how to wear a summer romper over 50 and I’m also including my niece in on the fun!
Photoshoot with My Niece
Let me introduce you to my 8-year-old niece Makaila, in case you missed a previous post with her in it. We styled Karina Dresses together in this post-Mommy, Aunt and Me- Karina Dresses.
My niece has thick, beachy blonde hair, has a feistiness about her, and loves music and fashion. I think I may have memorized the lyrics to many of the “Hamilton” songs without going to the show because she plays the music so often, and it’s growing on me! I will take that over the pop divas she listens to!
She was quite excited to do photoshoots with me this week, and we had fun together. Although unplanned, we both had kind of tribal prints on that day, her in a black and cream jumpsuit from Target, and me in a rust tribal jumper from H&M I bought about 3 or 4 years ago.
Here were are at what I’ve dubbed “Turtle Bay”, although that day we saw a crane, turtles and a snake in the water!
Romper at 51
You know me and accessories, we are good friends and we decided to do some print mixing with my rust seashell neck scarf and the print of my jumper. I could have double tied the scarf to fit more like a choker without the extra material hanging, but I liked this way as well. Its a change from a necklace and it was cooler this day. I know a neck scarf isn’t the most comfortable thing to wear in 95-degree temps, but the breeze was blowing and Mother Nature gave us a break at 82 degrees that day.
I also added my favorite new chocolate brown woven belt, which adds more depth of color and also accentuates my waist. My favorite gold espadrilles were picked from the mountain of shoes I have in my closet, and the bronze cuff was a nice finish.
These are just details that can make an outfit more dressy or elegant. Take away the belt, scarf and bracelet, and add a thin gold necklace with some converse sneakers and you have a casual look. If you aren’t crazy about your arms, you can add a jean jacket. If the jean jacket is too hot or not your thing, try adding a plain, thin white tee under the jumper.
The length on the shorts is fine and you can also find rompers with a longer inseam if you don’t want to bare as much leg.
In the evening, or if you go to a restaurant or movie theatre, try pairing it without the belt, and add a blazer. I have worn this romper with a white fitted blazer, and some wedges or espadrilles, and it is a fun, dressed up look that keeps you cool in those temps. Why DO they crank the air in restaurants?
I look at a romper in terms of it being like a cami and shorts, but one piece. If you would wear a cami and shorts, you can wear a romper. And “age-Schmage” it doesn’t matter as long as you love what you are wearing and feel confident!
Both my belt and my bag have been worn frequently this summer.
