Guys, I tried.
I tried SO HARD.
To resist this romper.
But for the love of God, look at it.
I am only so strong.
In spite of the existence of SWIILPT, and actually partly because of it, I am always trying to curb my shopping habits and take true stock of what I own and what I love. If you've ever tried to write a style blog you've probably experienced the shopaholic/monster/hoarder side effects that can come with it. It can be a battle to keep your head on - to remember that it's about quality, not quantity.
To keep myself from buying things, I play hard to get. I first try telling myself I don't like it that much. Yeah, it's cute, but whatever, so is every other romper. When that doesn't work, I tell myself I don't need it. This is usually where it all stops, because it is ALWAYS TRUE: I do not need a romper. I do not need any more clothes.
After a few weeks, if I still catch myself thinking of it wistfully, I surrender.
My photographer. She is very talented and focused, as long as there are no squirrels around.
I'm pairng it with another love-at-first-sight, my favorite baggy jacket.
My Mom searched high and low for these shoes for me after I gave up on finding them in a size that would fit my GIANT feet - she is the nicest.
It's feeling like Chicago Summer and I'm a happy camper.
Tonight I'm going to see Josh Rouse with some of my favorite people, and I can't wait.
