rompers, rompers, rompers!

The main objective for every thrifting adventure I've gone on all summer is to find the most perfect, wonderful romper I've been pining after for nearly a year and a half. It happens the same every time. I find a romper. Adorable print. Get so excited to try it on. Actually do so and it never, ever, never fits! It's heart breaking and I hate it! I'm afraid that due to my build (I'm 5'-8" and have a pretty long torso in comparison to the width of my body) the found rompers always bunch at the crotch and that's never a good thing.

My dream romper is the peach one pictured to the left, but honestly I'm not in a place where I can drop close to $60 on a piece of clothing that's staying power is quite questionable.

Do you fellow bloggers have any interest in rompers? Have you successfully found one? I'd love to know what kind of alterations, if any, were made to make it more modern. I'm looking for any kind of advice as far as rompers go.

i follow to the edge of the earth and fall off.

I know it's been a while since I've posted something, for that I am a terrible blogger and I hope you'll forgive me. The good news is that I'm back!

I'm about done with summer. The tempuratures have been feeling like they break 90 daily and the humidity makes me not want to ever move or venture outside. All this overheating is making me crave the cooler weather that calls for sweaters, scarfs, layers and everything else that comes along with fall. Not to mention Sally Jane Vintage has done a couple of posts about transitioning summer outfits to fall ones, which I think is brilliant.

Even though it was pretty hot when I wore this outfit, I coudn't say no to my brand new zebra print scarf. I paired it with a simple and light cotton v-neck and a short skirt to try make the idea of a scarf in the middle of the summer a little less insane.

What I'm Wearing:
Scarf: Chinatown.
V-neck T-shirt: UNIQLO SoHo.
Skirt: Vintage, Thrifted Charter Club.
Necklace: Forever21.
Shoes: Urban Outfitters.

What I'm Listening To:
"Weird Fishes/Arpeggi" Radiohead.
