Got a couple new obsessions…
I caught the first one at Trader Joe’s, and I warn you — their Red Pepper Spread with Eggplant and Garlic is highly infectious/addictive.
Oh, man. So good, and it’s only 15 calories per tablespoon! Tablespoon — those are the big ones.
I’ve been spreading it on almost everything edible, from flour tortilla wraps filled with hummus, avocado, shredded carrots, lettuce and diced tomatoes, to veggies and grilled fish. It also makes a great dip.
And then there are rompers…
No, wait — I don’t mean with the spread. I mean, I’ve also been obsessed with rompers. And the spread. Two different things.
Okay, why didn’t I start wearing these things years ago? I found this one here on zappos.com, the Becca Jumper by designer Alejandra Sky.
I’d never heard of the line before, but their stuff gets good reviews, and I liked the look of the piece, so I took the plunge.
And I’m so glad I did!
I brought it with me to Kauai and probably wore it more than anything else (except my red camp shirt). Even since I’ve been back, it’s all I’ve wanted to wear.
Ready to romp? If you are, here’s when/where my current romper crush/fashion romp began…
For me and my 5-foot-1-inch frame, it’s neither too long nor short, and I think it’s just loose enough. When I wear it, I don’t feel over-exposed.
Then there’s the print…which has been making me very hungry for pineapple, LOL! I’ve probably eaten five since last month.
As a matter of fact, maybe that’s what happened to the sleeves — I accidentally ate them! But seriously, this has been my very first sleeveless romper, and it won’t be my last. Very comfortable, especially this time of year.
With rompers, you take care of your entire outfit with a single piece. I love that. No worrying about coordinating a top with pants.
Oh, and this one even has pockets. Two in the front and two in the back.
Best of all, the drawstring waist has a little bit of stretch to it, giving me breathing room around the middle.
Sometimes, like if there’s a cool breeze wherever I’m going (or strong air conditioning), I’ll wear it with a scarf, but usually not if it’s hot.

Do you do rompers? Why or why not?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. You deserve a pat on the back. You made it over the hump.
What have you been up to tonight? I was craving pineapple earlier (yup, I was wearing this romper), so I picked up some fresh slices from TJ’s, and now I’ve just been catching up on Game of Thrones. I’m like three episodes behind.
