romper roundup 3.0

It’s time again, for our monthly romper roundup. There are so many fantastic jumpsuits out there that I’ve decided to continue updating the romper roundups until summer actually begins! This time I’ve collected a mix of affordables and inspirables. If you’re into sewing, perhaps some of the non-affordables will inspire you to create one of your own. I recently finished constructing (or fumbling over) a summer onesie for myself, and as soon as I can get my hands on a new, working camera, I’ll post pics of it. In the meantime, check out these fantastic new additions. (For more romper roundup coverage, go here).

Shopping on Bird, Topshop, Urban, Pixiemarket and Net-A-Porter.

Romper Roundup

In my search for the perfect short jumper, my lazy self conjured up an image of a one-piece that I could throw on almost daily without much effort involved. It would be a my-hair-has-just-been-frizzly-blow-dried romper, as well a morning-after brunch romper. In other words, a chameleon onesie. I know I set myself up with somewhat high expectations, and this is probably why I don’t actually have a large wardrobe. But personality disorder aside and lasso in hand, I rounded up some grade A rompers. I seem to have found a different romper for each occasion but alas, not THE romper for every occasion. At least not one within my wallet’s reach. But oh, these are pretty!

baby wardrobe essentials

As a tribute to my amazing sister, who is currently in labor on the other side of the world, not even knowing whether a boy or a girl will pop out, I dedicate this post to baby fashion. One company, of which I always thought had the most amazing kid’s clothes, is Oilily. Back when I was a true color fiend, I would revel in their bright furry kid’s jackets and strange ear-flapped hats. Created in the 60’s, Oilily’s fearless use of color and mixed patterns, paired with an artistic-bohemian aura, makes for a perfect statement to dress your baby in. Poops and spit-ups couldn’t even make an Oilily baby dress look bad. My only complaint is that their badly built flash site causes intense navigation frustration. A site which is much easier to navigate through though, and holds Oilily garb as well as many other original baby collections (such as City Threads, Mini Fine and Kids Ink) is Tuttibella. If I could afford to buy all this sweetness for my sister’s new bundle, this is the baby wardrobe I would create:

All these pieces can be found at Tuttibella.

UPDATE: It’s a girl 🙂
