Last Saturday was a great day. The weather was finally cooperating – no rain, no clouds, just total sunshine. The hubs was running the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend Half-Marathon (with no training, may I add), so we decided to take it easy that day…on a patio.
We headed down to Nordstrom to sit on the Bazille terrace. We had a great lunch, I sipped on sauvignon blanc while he hydrated with water. We discussed our upcoming trip to Spain (so excited) and made strategic plans for the race the following day. Frankly, I was totally relaxed. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the day.
I’ve been editing my summer wardrobe which needed a little help. A few years ago, I invested in a ton of boyfriend tees and high-waisted jean shorts. Well, when I say “invested”, I took about $100 and bought as much as I could at fast fashion stores. Sigh. Nothing wore well except for the boyfriend tees which I splurged on (I needed to stretch the budget for those).
While in New York, I invested in a kick-ass pair of Rag & Bone Justine Jean Shorts (really short, really high-waisted and really awesome). I also headed to Marshall’s and bought every single romper I could get my hands on including the one featured in this post.
I know a lot of people have a love hate relationship with rompers and jumpsuits. While super cute and on trend, they are annoying to put on and take off (especially if you have to pee really bad – sorry), and if you have a long torso, they launch you into “Camel Toe Territory”.
This one I scored from Marshall’s is perfect. It’s made of a soft linen, the dusty blue and white stripes are super pretty, and I love the shoulder detail. Best of all, it’s off-the-shoulder, so you can whip it on and off in a pinch. Let’s not forget the pretty frills at the bum and tie-waist detail. Amazingly flattering.
I wore this on Saturday out and about and coupled with the French Crisp ice cream The Darling Hubs treated me to, it kept me smiling all day.
