Anatomy of an Outfit: The Romper

July 29, 2010






I bought this romper the week I decided to quit my job and go freelance. This article of clothing epitomized the fantasy I had built for future career in working for myself – unfussy and carefree. Little did I know that this linen romper would require ironing – which is an appropriate metaphor for what freelancing is actually like.

I’m a huge fan of layering in the fall and winter – so in the summer I feel naked without accessories. This sweet head piece I picked up is perfect for dressing up the most basic of outfits.

Linen Romper: Aeropostale (of all places…)
Hair piece: Urban Outfitters ($5 clearance)
Braided Belt: American Apparel
Shoes: Target
