HELLO I MADE A FAUX ROMPER. Nothing says Chicago Summer 2017 like formal rompers – check that: formal off-the-shoulder rompers – and I, for one, am so tired of looking at them that I went and made myself a pretend romper with straps that constantly fall off of my shoulders. It’s more of a playsuit, if we’re being specific – a very tightly boned playsuit – just perfect for those super casual days when I don’t need a full range of motion nor do I mind fully exposing myself. I wore the shorts on vacation, and my Mother-in-Law declared them to be the shortest shorts she’d ever seen.
Okay, yes maybe.
I love the effortlessness of a tiny one-piece for summer, but we all know how actually very full of effort they are in practice, so I made two pieces. I’ll do what I want.
Always accidentally getting my feet chopped off in these photos.
A better jawline, please.
Matching plaids like a mother.
I can also throw this all in the washer and dryer. Take that, silky rompers of Chicago. GOODBYE.
