It's Friday dolls!!! The weekend has finally arrived! What do you have planned? I'll be working most of it but definitely making some time to hit the Lake Mary's Farmer's Market tomorrow morning before heading into my shift at S&T! Then of course it's Sunday Funday with the Super Bowl! I love the Super Bowl, it's the perfect excuse to eat some really bad food while watching all the fun commercials ;) lol
Well onto one of my favorite trends that I personally have about 10 of, is the romper! Definitely a trend to try if you haven't!
HISTORY OF THE ROMPER:
- Rompers began as children’s clothing and resembles such kid clothing such as overalls, jumpers, and as my man likes to call them, onesies ;) lol
- The earliest advertisement for rompers was in this issue of the New York Times
from 1904. The ad called rompers “pinafore-like garments” with the skirt
portion gathered into shorts for comfort. Described as easy to play in and often
made of cotton or other washable material, rompers were the go-to play
clothes of the 20th century.
- Rompers continued to be popular into the ’20s, as much for stylish
young women as for children. With its one-piece design, the romper was a
chic alternative to a blouse and full skirt and could be dressed up or
down, depending on the fabric.
- In the ’70s, the romper’s leggy cousin, the jumpsuit, was a wardrobe
staple for anyone with disco on the brain. Since then, jumpsuits have
gone in and out of fashion, recently being revived with 70's feel.
- These days, the romper is back in a big way, with designers
featuring rompers on the runway and retailers experimenting with
patterns, tailored and relaxed silhouettes, and eye-catching details.
It’s likely you have one in your own closet right now.

you're worried about looking lanky.

Average body type -
Finding the perfect romper all boils down to fit.
You should have enough room in the stomach and

proportional to your size
