The Black Romper a.k.a My Power Suit


You know how when you’re looking for something specific you feel like you can’t find it anywhere? Then when you least expect it, it just appears?

That’s my story with this black romper. I’ve wanted one for years.

I love rompers, but since I’m tall it’s hard to find one that’s flattering. I’ve also noticed that a lot of brands make rompers out of silk, which I do not understand. When I wear silk I feel l like I’m trapped in a heat box. I also tend to spill, so 100% silk does not work for me!

I was at a Bachelorette weekend in Charleston when I found this romper in Madewell on sale for $29! They didn’t have my size so they ordered it and sent it to my house for free.

What I really like is that it’s fitted, but has a little give, which makes it comfortable. The built-in belt makes it flattering, and the cropped pant is great for my long legs. I can wear it with heels, or flats and a blazer, or gladiator sandals and a jean jacket for a warm spring night.

It’s easy. It’s classy. It’s versatile. It’s comfortable. The perfect combination for me.


PS  The exact romper from Madewell, is sold out, but they have some other great options on sale right now!
