Fashion Friday- 4th of July Romper

Fashion Friday- 4th of July Romper

Happy Fashion Friday!

This week has been a whirlwind, unpacking for Switzerland and then repacking to go to Orlando.  I’m actually left yesterday and am already here.  I went back out of town so quickly because my future Sister-in-law Erica’s wedding shower is tomorrow.  She grew up in the neighborhood next to my Brother and I, so the shower is back home.  I was just going to go for the shower, but then I found out my good friend Susanna was speaking at BlogHer in Orlando the same weekend AND had an extra free ticket.  It seemed like too good of a coincidence, so I decided to do both.

I’ll be posting the conference on Instagram stories, so make sure to follow along.  I think it’s going to be another week until I can find time to post more Switzerland stuff.  Thanks for your patience. 🙂  Hopefully it will be worth the wait.

Believe it or not, the long 4th of July weekend is actually next weekend!  It will be the first weekend I’ll be home in well over a month, so I am planning to relax and spend some much needed time just enjoying life at home and Asheville.

I do love finding a festive new outfit for the holiday though.  I walked into Target the other day and this adorable romper was calling my name.  I thought it was a great play on a 4th of July outfit, without being too obvious.  It’s also understated enough that you could easily wear it for the rest of the summer.

The top is made of a fun smocked fabric that is comfortable to wear. I like the way it is slightly more fitted.  I find it more flattering than some of the super blousy ones.

The shorts are slightly longer in the back, which makes them also easier to wear.

The mismatched, yet still matching patterns are perfect for each other.

This very wearable romper also comes in a pretty yellow color and is less than $25!  You can’t beat that.

For sizing reference, I sized up to get a little more coverage. 🙂

    You always find so many different varieties of clothes. I’ve never worn a romper, but you look very beautiful in it. 🙂 And I hope you have a wonderful time at the BlogHer Conference. You are a proficient traveler.

  4. The rompers are so cute but hit or miss with me. I am different size on the top and bottom which is tricky

    Super adorable, but I don’t think I could ever do a romper because I have to pee so much. TMI, but it’s the truth!

    Very nice and fun looking.
    Glad you made it back safely.
    I hope you enjoy the wedding shower and festivities
    in Orlando. I bet you’ll enjoy being back home ( smile ).
    I say home meaning your home growing up because in many
    ways that will always feel like home.
