Confession #1: When Erica
first sent over her romper for the last Swap & Style
, I was stressing out super hard about how to style it. It sounds silly to admit because our Style & Swaps are supposed to be fun and exciting, but I was a nervous wreck with this piece. To be honest, I struggled a lot with how to wear it because I was super self-conscious about the fit and length of the shorts in proportion to my legs.
Confession #2: Because of #1, I originally styled the romper differently with a knee-length skirt over the shorts. The proportions of the romper were fine, but I was too self-conscious about taking photos in a standalone romper, so I tried the romper 2 ways as options for the post.
Decided to dig these photos up out of the outfit backlog to share my silly story about being intimidated by a romper. I know, I know. It’s so ridiculous now that I’ve written down the thought process that went behind the whole romper ordeal, but this is what happened when I let my nerves get the best of me. It’s funny to look back on all of this now because the romper Erica sent is one of my favourite recent outfits!
romper (work as a top): Forever 21 (swapped from Erica’s closet)
accordion skirt: c/o AngelEye London
tote bag: Moorea Seal
sandals: Franco Sarto (exact, via onlineShoes.com)
“meow” necklace: c/o Snake and Fawn
Romper talk aside, I wanted to quickly talk about this “meow” necklace from Snake and Fawn
. I’m a little (ok, a lot
!) obsessed with cats and will usualy substitute the word “meow” into random everyday conversations. For example, I could be talking about a song that I just heard on a radio and attempt to sing it. If I don’t know the words, I replace the lyrics with “meow meow meow” and sing that along to the tune. Ridiculous? Yes, very. When I was offered a premade necklace from S+F, I immediately gravitated to the “meow” necklace!
I love the idea of the uniquely handwritten necklaces offered by Snake and Fawn. All of them are in the style of the inspiration, or you can request a custom necklace formed from your own handwriting! Pretty neat, eh? All of the necklaces can also be made with vintage deadstock chain (mine came on a beautiful, blackened gold chain) for that one-of-a-kind special look.
If you’re looking for a unique, everyday piece, I highly recommend checking S+F out! I’m currently debating getting a custom made necklace from my own
chicken scratch handwriting.
Random: here’s a silly outtake from when the wind decided to pick up:
HAPPY SUNDAY! ♥
