Romper Room-y?

There are several things about the whole romper trend that seem to be screaming "DON'T DO IT!!" into my thirty-something ears. First off, I last wore one when I was seven (this seems to put them in the same category as knee-high socks and shirts with cats on them). Secondly, my disproportionately long torso may not lend itself well to the fit (read: camel toe) and then there's the disturbing reality that I will likely have to get completely naked when going to the bathroom at a public place.

Despite what I would typically and logically conclude as three strikes, I am still feeling an overwhelming desire to own one in a shade of citrus and wear it while sipping cocktails at the Parker in Palm Springs. That said, here are a few of my faves and some accompanying goodies:

  1. Go for it Jess, I still don't have the cojones, though I do have a secret desire to own one as well, I just don't know if I have the confidence to rock it at the park right along with the cute 4 year olds ;p
