When I was seven I had a favorite romper. It was green terry cloth with white trim and I pretty much lived in it all summer - a summer that ironically also included viewings of Romper Room. I always watched so intently at the end of the show, hoping that Lisa would be one of the names the host called out from the Magic Mirror. (And if you can remember this show, we can totally hang out together in the Old People Who Watched Obscure Children's TV Club.)
But since becoming an adult, my affinity for rompers has diminished, much like my love of cheesy children's television shows. That is, until rompers came onto the fashion scene last year and my interest was piqued. Because really, who doesn't want to wear the equivalent of an adult onesie? It's basically one step away from pajamas in the comfort department, so naturally I was game to try this trend.
It took some time to find a style that worked with my long torso and offered sufficient butt cheek coverage when I'd raise my arms (a quality that really shouldn't be overlooked in post-40 fashion, right?!) but I did find a cute option at Ross last spring (they always seem to quite a few rompers in the dress section) and ended up wearing it lots and loving it. That was enough motivation to find a new romper for summer 2016, and this one from Target is my newest closet addition. It's got an adjustable drawstring waist, loose drapey top and sufficient inseam to cover the nether regions, all making it incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. And I love the idea of one-piece outfits that require very little thought. Which is probably why getting into pjs is my favorite part of the day, duh.)
I'll sign off with the famous words Romper, stomper, bomper boo. Tell me, tell me, tell me, do. Magic Mirror, tell me today, did all my friends have fun at play? (You'll have to fill in your name in the comments and I'll totally read them while gazing into my Magic Mirror, I promise!) Have a wonderful Wednesday!
