To Romp Or Not To Romp

Now get your mind out of the gutter, girls...I'm talking about the trendy little outfit that is known as the romper. And has anyone else noticed that they are EVERYWHERE these days? I've decided that the romper is to Summer 2010 what the maxi dress was to Summer 2009. So naturally, in a moment of shopping splendor, I bit the bullet and purchased this linen number last night at Arden B.

I wish you could have seen the internal conflict I was having with myself - I'm sure my face was all contorted in my thinking expression, because I'm standing in the store surrounded by girls who are a good five years younger than me and I'm having the following conversation in my head:

"I know this is going to be completely out of fashion by this time next year but it's only $50 and it's black which is naturally slimming and man, it would be so cute with my cowboy boots (especially for tomorrow night at CMA Fest) which are exactly the same shade as the skinny belt so yes, I need this, if only to have the perfect outfit for this one night and a new staple for this one summer..."

And so, I purchased it. Don't act surprised. You knew it was going to happen.

And, to follow yet another trend in the fashion industry, I went ahead and got this fabulous straw fedora. Because I feel a teensy bit like a celebrity when I put it on. Just being honest.

And with rationale flying out the window, I moseyed on down the mall and got these too...

OK, just kidding about that last part. If only I had $500 bucks lying around to get a pair of Frye boots bedazzled in rhinestones. Maybe one day.

And honey, if you're reading this, I'm sorry for just giving you heart failure. Of COURSE I will discuss all purchases over $200 with you. Or hide them until I bust them out at just the right moment, wondering how on earth you forgot I had them...

Happy Friday, y'all!


  1. Love your purchases! My fedora makes me feel like a celebrity too :) Oh and it's perfect for bad hair days which seem to be happening a lot now that Summer humidity is here. Have a great weekend!

  2. God I love fedoras!!!! But i've never bought one because I didn't know if I could pull it off or not!

  3. not gonna lie.. I got a little jealous about the boots then bummed you didn't really get them,ha!

  4. oh you're just going to look so stinkin' cute. i, unfortunatly, can only wear the puffy high waisted jumpers as the ever expanding belly doesntsomuch accomodate the "belted" look :)

    and i did almost freak out when i saw the boots. my first thought was "hot DAMN that girl must have a nice little paycheck" :) oh to have the money to buy them. wouldn't that be nice. happy weekend darling!!!

  5. And in the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that those lovely boots are retailing at $700, and not $500, as previously thought. So if anyone wants to purchase them in a size 7 and let me borrow them, feel free. :)

  6. OK, I keep seeing these all over the place too and you know what? I think of YOU every time I see them. I think of YOU in cowboy boots with them, so this post is freaking me out a little. I think it was the shortie get-away dress you wore that makes me think of you. I LOVE this ensemble. Sadly, T30SB does not wear shorts so this look is not an option! I have the ugliest legs (for reals, no lie).

  7. I haven't taken the romper plunge, but I fully expect to here in the near future.

    And those boots. TDF.

  8. Love the rompers! But I think they look silly on me since I'm short (5'2"). Maybe it's cause I'm just trying on cheap ones...
