Cue internal monologue:
Oh please, oh please. Don’t let the sleeve fall in the toilet! Why is this thing so hard to get out of!? It’s like origami… I knew I shouldn’t have had that third cup of tea!
Here’s the thing about rompers: I think they’re super cute! — in theory. But they can be tricky in practice, especially — ahem! — if you’re accident-prone and have a small bladder.
But that didn’t stop me! I’d been eying this Leifsdottir Scattered Wing Romper at Anthropologie for ages and finally caved.
Isn’t it cute? The color, the snazzy print, the fluttery sleeves. Oh, and it even has pockets! — which Tabs really appreciates because I use them to carry his turkey flavored Temptations when we go for walks.
My left hand (is in my pocket)!
It’s very lazy-friendly, too, and being lazy at heart, I like not having to think about matching my pants with a shirt. With this, it’s all just there, BAM!
Since this particular romper has stylish little details like the sleeves and the print, it doesn’t need anything extra to jazz it up, but you could add a favorite pair of wedges, and maybe sunglasses or a simple ring.
But what they don’t tell ya about rompers — they’re not the easiest clothes to get off and on, especially when you, um, need to use the loo.
If I’m wearing this one when nature calls, I have to undo a snap at the front, and shimmy my way all the way out of the top half, so that it’s just kinda hanging there when I pull down the bottom part…
Awkward! Especially in public restrooms, where I’m extra paranoid about the sleeves accidentally dragging on the floor or the toilet, ewww.
And what if, for some reason, I have to book it out of a stall in a hurry?
It could happen. Did you ever see Copycat? Remember that bathroom scene? Well, this romper is not designed for quick bathroom escapes, that’s for sure.
But I still love it! Fellow short girls may also like not having to get it hemmed.
I don’t know if this particular Leifsdottir romper is still available online, but you might want to check your local Anthropologie store.
Many stores carry rompers, though, like this cute black and white one at Forever21.
Isn’t the cutout back detailing super cute? And it’s only $15.
