elegance ensemble, colour the world

It was such a dark, dreary day out today, not to mention cold - the last fleeting glimpses of summer are definitely over with. Looking through some past pictures, I found these: me sporting my romper (featured here) for the final time this year. I searched and searched for the perfect playsuit throughout the summer months, and I finally settled on this one, found in a cute Victoria boutique. I loved the bright colours and the scattered pattern; it also has an open back, which just sealed the deal for me - I love different, intricate backs. They add that little extra something. So here's an outfit post during the final hours of sunshine and sandal-appropriate weather - I hope it brightens your day!

Don't hang up your romper in the back of your closet just yet, because there are so many cute ways to wear it for the autumn months. Paired with leggings, a patterned scarf, and a neutral blazer is a comfortable, chic way to wear a playsuit during the day - shown perfectly by the effortless Alexa Chung. To glam up your look, Kate Moss shows that wearing a romper with black tights, a fitted black jacket and black stilettos is the perfect combination for a night on the town.

  24. Very good idea, just like you can wear tights with short..why not rompers?!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bahaha I almost commented asking you what city you live in because pretty sure it's 10 degrees out now! But, these are from summer...makes sense now ;)
    Love that romper and I agree they're a great layering piece in the Fall. Until you have to use the washroom, in which case rompers aren't practical at all!!

  26. Gahh you're so pretty! I'm super jealous! Love the print of the romper. I love wearing mine with opaque tights and over the knee boots.

    Maybe I missed all the cool boutiques in Victoria :( I shopped in Bay Centre and the shops outside. I couldn't find ANYTHING. Usually I can buy things really easily.. oh well!
