Okay. Okay. Finally.
Finally, I found a romper that wasn't too short or cheeky for my body frame. I have seen so many adorable styles in stores, magazines and on blogs, but every one I tried on in the past made me tear up when I looked in the mirror. I had all but give up until the day I wasn't even looking.
I was at Nordstrom last week to shop their Anniversary Sale (see my top picks here) and found this Topshop floral romper on crazy sale. At first I thought it was a dress. I was so close to putting it back on the rack when I realized it was actually a romper. I am so thankful a little voice inside my head shoved me into the fitting room. What?! This little number can actually disguise itself as a dress? Sign me up.

SHOP THE LOOK
I really stopped into Nordstrom for their annual sale, but because it is still so crazy, blazing hot here in Texas, I passed on a few in-store Fall purchases and opted for a piece I can throw on during the day, wear to the pool over my swimsuit and most importantly pack for our California adventures next week.
I swear, this is the MOST comfortable and lightweight piece of clothing I have purchased in a really long time. Between us, I feel like I am not wearing anything at all. It's that GOOD. It also gets triple points for not wrinkling, having a pom-pom trim and less than $25. Oh, and not being booty short.
In case you are wondering about the sizing; I am wearing a medium because that was the only size left. I think I could have gotten away with a small in my upper and middle areas, but being 5'7", I think the smaller size would have been too short.
Don't forget the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends August 4th. There are plenty of Fall pieces to grab early or go ahead and live in the Summer season and score some crazy good deals. Happy shopping!
