I've wanted to take photos with this old, abandoned bus station for awhile now, but was having a hell of a time finding something to wear with the setting. When I pulled this 70's inspired romper from my closet on Friday morning, I knew I had a winner.
I never thought in a million years I'd be wearing a romper. First of all, rompers are not forgiving in fit which means they usually don't work for those of us with the curves. Also, they can sometimes look a bit immature. You know, like a onesie for adults. However, when I saw this little chambray number in my local Anthro, I couldn't resist giving it a try. I've been obsessed with all things 70's since I was a teenager. In fact, it's always been a dream of mine to rock a denim jumpsuit. Yep, that's me, a big dreamer. Anyway, I didn't have high hopes when I brought this back to the fitting room with me, so I was pleasantly surprised when it fit and looked decent. Being the big dreamer that I am, I also have high standards. It fits - check! It looks decent - check! I'll take it!
Since it's a halter top, the plan was to go without a bra, but things didn't go as planned. The girls were in their proper place at first, but once I started moving around, getting ready and such, they had a mind of their own and were in places they ought not be. Naughty girls! It was obvious that they needed to be contained, so a strapless bra was in order. Next, I needed to cover up some skin to make it work appropriate. This lightweight, pointelle cardigan I purchased a couple of years ago from Old Navy did the trick. Old Navy came through in the shoe department, as well. I picked up these cute wedges recently for $20. After all, what's a denim jumpsuit without a cute pair of wedges? I finished things off by adding some color with a necklace from The Limited.
I was really digging this outfit and felt very groovy in it all day. It was everything I dreamed it would be. Now, on to my next dream...a polyester leisure suit. Just kidding!
