Ready to Romp

I'm pleasantly excited and surprised by today's epiphany. All summer I've been undecided on the romper. To romp or not to romp I've said to myself. Over and over again. It's quite literally consumed me. That's a lot of self consumption. The definition alone is dubious -- "a one-piece garment for children to wear at play; the lower part is shaped like bloomers". Uh huh, riiight. Which leads me to the garment itself. The only one-piece anything that feels adult-age-appropriate is a bathing suit. And maybe certain lovelies for your boudoir business, but shhh, that's your business. The romper is a national affair, and one on which I now have a firm stance. Enter my aha! moment. The only way to do this trend is to have it appear to be separates but conveniently one-piece. Instead of looking like you stepped out in your lovelies or worse, your big girl onesie, select a romper that is two-tone. I've fallen in love with this one from Marc by Marc. See ... it looks like shorts and a top. Sneaky. And the buckled strap belt pluses up the disguise. An aside, MJ did a lot of this belt this season and I'm glad to see it's made its way to this piece as well. And now I'm making my way to the cash wrap with this new-found fashion fabulousness. Are you with me? I'm ready to romp.
