Now, here's the thing. I've owned this "romper" for probably two years now. I've never worn it prior to this day. Why, you ask? I have a love/hate relationship with rompers. (By the way, I HATE the word romper. It sounds like something you would wear as a toddler.) I have found quite a number of adorable, vintage rompers at the thrift store but none of them ever seem to fit me as I swear I have the world's longest torso. I had the same problem shopping for leotards for my ballet classes years ago. Nothing is ever long enough for me and is therefore completely unwearable due to discomfort and unflattering business going on.
This is the first romper that has come close to being comfortable... though I'm still not sure if I am completely on board with it yet. I really like the plaid and the color, though, so I keep giving it a try. Well, this is my first actual attempt. What do you think? Also, I think this is the shortest thing I have ever shown myself wearing on this blog. Yay for nobbley knees? :)
Two of my latest favorites from the shoe box full of jewelry I inherited from my grandma - These two vintage pins. Again, as I've said before, I don't ever remember her wearing these nor can I imagine her wearing anything like these but I supposed she probably owned them or wore them during the years they were popular... which was some time either before me or before I would remember what she wore anyway. Never the less, I always like the idea that she held onto them for a reason - maybe they were a sweet little gift from my grandpa or maybe she wore them to something and had a memorable time? Who knows. They're adorable any way you slice it.
Also fun? Having a great time hanging out with my boyfriend in Detroit. We packed a picnic lunch and strolled the RiverWalk.
That's my boyfriend giving me a mini Michigan history lesson while checking out this sign. He's into things like that. :)
I hope you guys had a great week last week!
