Who Knew I Was a Romper Gal?

Forever 21 Earrings and Romper, Payless Sandals

I’ve worn this romper many times since I featured it in this post and I’ve always forgotten to take pictures of me wearing it, but not this time!  For so long, I thought a romper would look horrible on me, but then I saw this patterned beauty in Forever 21 and I decided to try it on.  Then I realized, rompers are so me- easy breezy, comfortable, yet still chic!

Also, the apartment-hunting saga continues!  The first application we put on an apartment fell through because it was already rented; however, yesterday, we put in an application for an apartment that I like even better than the first one.  I think this might be our last chance to get a place by September 1st, so I really hope it works out.  Thank you for all the good vibes you’ve been sending my way! :D

    Beautiful, love it so much, definitely one of your best outfits. I love rompers too, just discovered that right at the end of last summer. Good luck with the apartment. I have just started searching for one too even though it might not be until well into next year.

    I love rompers, in fact I have this one in the red! It is one of my faves! Also, to answer your question, the H&M wedges are from this season but they were hard to find. I saw them on a mannequin first and the cashier told me that the shoes they have on the mannequins they don’t always carry. It didn’t make sense to me but I finally found them awhile later!
