Not sure if it’s because there was little Valentines Day action going on around my neighborhood (although moseyman did leave amazing surprise love ball pastries for me in the fridge), or the fact that it suddenly turned all summer on me, but I’m in the mood for pink. Pink cheeks, pink jumpsuits, pink socks, just give it to me.
My pixie market pics from the new arrivals batch… I think I need this romper.
A commenter on my recent romper post brought it to my attention that one of the rompers in the roundup is already sold out. I went back to Topshop to check this out and ended up seeing another romper that I just couldn’t ignore. After quietly slipping it into my online shopping basket, I continued to browse around until I ended up creating a slightly dangerous consumption. Dangerous, because I’m only working part time right now… Anyway, here is my Topshop “wishlist,” and yes, sorry folks, the Topshop romper from my 3.0 roundup is sold out.
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).
Lately, I’ve been looking around, not for clothing, but for clothing inspiration. Since I’m jobless, I’ve been banging around on my sewing machine, creating a few key pieces for my own spring/summer wardrobe. Today I checked back on a shop I always liked, called Jumelle and was happy to come across their new “spring in bloom” selections. Here are my faves (I love that crazy belt and the casual, slingy shape of the marble romper).
So this weekend called for another breather from city life. This time we chose to drive a few hours north to a beautiful nature reserve. We brought the dog with us as usual, but were told once we got there that she wasn’t allowed to come on the trails with us. Feeling terrible about leaving her stuck in the car, we didn’t linger too long while we were there. But guilt aside, this was one of my favorite field trips we’ve taken so far. It wasn’t that the reserve was huge and empty of people, it was actually quite small and fairly populated. It was the weather that played a huge part in this great day. Dark clouds hovered over powerful sun rays which made for a dramatic back drop. Then after the clouds eventually burst, the colors were fantastic! Like after every great storm, the greens were greener, the yellows were yellower, etc… The highlight of the trip though, which turned us into a couple of gross camera happy tourists, was the herd of wild water buffalo, just roaming about oh 50 feet away. So… this week’s trip picks theme is “nature tourist nerd caught in rain storm.”

As more and more spring flowers are popping up, so are the ever so popular rompers. So, I thought it was time for a new romper roundup. As opposed to my original romper roundup, I made sure this time to add a few more affordables to the mix. Here is romper roundup 2.0.

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!
