Enough with the rompers.



The other day I went to the mall on a quest for sundresses. What else does a sane Florida girl wear these sweltering days, anyway? In store after store, I gleefully reached for what looked like pretty patterned frocks and flowy skirts only to discover…

The romper.

Yes, yes. I read fashion magazines, too. I know that stars from Blake Lively to Beyonce have been pulling off the toddler-ish duds for months. I've seen the spreads showcasing different accessories and shoes to pair with the odd little jumpsuits. And FINE. I tried one on. 


Don’t get me wrong. I’ve seen girls out there rockin’ the romp, gliding by in their wedges and long necklaces as if it’s the most natural thing in the world. Great. But what about the rest of us that don’t possess the magical torso-leg ratio that makes infant-wear look chic?

( << Yikes. Sorry Jessica Simps)

How can we possibly pull off a look that was designed for the not yet potty-trained?And speaking of pulling it off, what are we supposed to do in the ladies room? Get completely undressed just for a bathroom break?

Enough already. Bring back the sundresses before I throw a temper tantrum.
