To Be or Not to Be: The Romper

I'm too sexy for my two-piece.

The Romper is like the food in my eight grade cafeteria. . .I didn’t know if I should be blatantly scared of it, or if I was so hungry I just wanted to run a train over it and forgive and forget.  Put it this way, the romper doesn’t look so good in my mind or in front of me at Target, but after a while I find these weird cravings to have one. To let one present itself in my busy closet. To slip one on in a dressing room. To wear it, to embrace it.

It’s an odd thing that’s happening, this romper love. But I’m getting more and more used to it. And like the surprise meal at the caf, I’m actually warming up to the idea. Granted it’s mid-summer and like noon time in the cafeteria, I’m hungry for some fresh produce style. (Sorry about all of the food references, I guess I’m getting hungry).

I saw ceiling eyes Audrina Patridge sporting a floral, black romper in U.S. Weekly the other day, and she looked great. Jessica Simpson was sporting one with a jean button up and she looked great. Luckily for me, they both have big boobies and can still pull off a romper? More of the reason to buy one.

But then I have my doubts. Rompers look like something a toddler would wear, and would have buttons in the crotch area so they can easily change their diaper.  I feel like they would be uncomfortable and (frontal) wedgie-tastical. I know my mother probably wore them in the 70’s but are they just a trend? The minute I purchase one, will harem pants be in again?  How will I pee at the bar? Will I have to dutifully unassemble the entire outfit to take a leak?

All of these (really pointless) questions and so little answers. But I can see it now…a floral romper with a leather jacket….OR…a struggle fest in the bathroom and a hungry frontal region….

    Haha “how will I pee at the bar?” I have yet to get onboard with the romper trend myself but I have a feeling I might before the summer is over. Saves time of having to pick out a top and bottom.

    I feel the same way about this damn romper. I saw some celebs in US Weekly rocking the holy mother out of it, but I’m terrified of it. I feel if I buy one and really plan on wearing it, there will need to be vodka involved.

    Um, same. I just read in Cosmo it is the number #1 outfit guys like to see on a women. Somehow, I’m having a difficult time believing that. (unless there is vodka involved) haha
