Date Night Alternative: The Romper
With Valentine's Day around the corner and local shops in a state of "in between" winter and spring, finding the perfect outfit may be tricky. So let's get creative and see what else is in your closet or on the racks; maybe you can add some great accessories like tights, shoes, or a belt to achieve that romantic look. In this case, as an alternative to the traditional dress or skirt, I thought I would try something new—a romper. Now you know I can really get into some jumpsuits, but never have I ever worn a romper until this very blog post. It's not that I was against them; I have personally tried on countless rompers without any luck. Traditionally, if you are a grown woman, the romper isn't made for you. I find that they are too short, or too tight—basically too tiny. They are made for tiny people with tiny little torsos. But finally, oh finally! I have found one that, in my opinion, is equally adorable and fits without me tugging at it every chance I get. Maude Boutique. Photography by Lauren Blair.
