When rompers and jumpsuits first started making a comeback a couple of years ago, I brushed off the trend thinking that I could never pull it off for a couple of reasons: I hated showing my legs (hello, creamy-never-tanned-skin!) and shorts never seemed to be my friend (hello, constant thigh ride up!). Luckily, I have moved past that line of thinking and have fully embraced jumpsuits and rompers, both of which currently reside in my current wardrobe rotation. Ever since I began to take more fashion risks, I’ve realized that the fear of a particular item not looking “good” on me was keeping me from even trying it on! In my ripe ol’ age of 28, I now realize that you won’t know if something will look “good” or not until you try it on, which is exactly what happened with this romper. I loved the print so I marched right on in to the dressing room, tried it on, and to my surprise, I absolutely loved it.
Now, I am still hesitant to show full leg because my skin doesn’t seem to tan well, which is something that I can now say that I somewhat embrace, and I do find myself tugging at the bottoms of my shorts more often than I would like to admit, but this romper seems to circumvent those issues. Not only is the print gorgeous, but the shorts themselves are very comfortable and forgiving. Also, being a tall gal, I don’t find that these shorts ride up to uncomfortable heights, which is such a relief. Most importantly, I just feel good wearing it.
Usually, it is rare to have shorts weather here in San Francisco. However, there are a handful of days a year where I can actually wear shorts and not freeze. This past weekend, I had two of those beautiful days. Score!
