A countdown was in full force as to when it would be deemed acceptable to break out this romper. From the moment I pulled it off the rack at Nordstrom and tried it on, I was in love. I pranced up and down the dressing room hallway, sat and chatted, and refused to take it off. I was so close to asking if I could walk out of the store with it on.
And now, I busted out my inner flower child and rocked my first romper yesterday. Not wanting to make this look extremely dated, I took a few steps in taking this one piece into a “wow” outfit.
But first, a little music to set the mood:
I prepped my hair a night before for this look. I wanted to go a little retro by parting my hair down the middle, as opposed to my normal deep side part. I did that the night before with a rat tail comb and let it dry. In the morning, I lightly straightened it, but still let there be a little bit of wave. I took the top section, and pulled it back and tied it with a clear elastic.
Because the print on this romper is so wild, I didn’t want to go overboard with the accessories. I left my normal earrings on and left off any bracelets, necklaces, or rings. I took a braided brown leather belt and wrapped it around my waist. I tied the ends once, and then twisted the ends so it would stay. This really accentuated my hips and gave the romper a little bit of flair.
Although in another post, I was shown wearing strappy leather heels, today was not the day to one, being wearing heels, or two, be wearing open toed shoes. I would normally pair this with those heels, or a pair of gladiator sandals, but I opted for my brown Steve Madden Troopa boots to keep my toes warm. It also added a bit of an edgy modern flair to this outfit.
Now, don’t be afraid to go all out with these ’60s and ’70s-inspired trends. Rock a flowered headband! Throw on a daisy print tank! Strut in a romper! Just have fun doing it!
