Rosé All Day: The Elevated Romper

Rosé All Day: The Elevated Romper

SO! This past Saturday was glorrrriiiiousss!!! The temperature soared to 31C…and I took advantage. I am completely solar powered, and I pretty much came to life. I woke up, got dressed, grabbed my girls and headed downtown to the nearest pretty patio (well, at 3pm – I’m not a lush).

A few weeks ago, I cleaned up at Marshalls Canada. Like I mentioned before, my summer wardrobe needed some help, so off I went in the search of dresses and rompers, and maybe a pair of kick-ass shoes. While I didn’t score any shoes, I did buy every cute romper they had and an awesome little dress (more on that later).

This little romper though. Wow – what a crowd pleaser. On the way to meet Alyssa in the Courtyard in downtown Ottawa, I was stopped several times by admirers wanting to know where I got it. “Marshalls!” I cheerfully explained to one lady as I diplomatically shooed her hands away from the ruffles at the legs. These pictures don’t do it justice, really. It’s the softest shade of rosé – those great blush pink rosés from France that are so good, dry and refreshing, you thank God for the French with each sip.

The pale pink fabric also has a fine silver thread running through it which gleams in the light too. Sigh – the details are just too good! From the dainty ruffles to the beautiful back detail (I’m so sorry I didn’t get a shot), this little romper is special. My favourite feature is the shoulder detail. Spaghetti straps hold up this little number, crisscrossing and tying prettily at the back. The sleeves sit beautifully on the arms highlighting your shoulders. This truly is the most feminine little outfit I’ve purchased in a long time.

I sat on a patio that day with my girlfriends, soaking up the sun, catching up and laughing until we cried. We sipped rosé and enjoyed the fantastic late spring weather that is so synonymous with the Ottawa valley.

I’ll be reaching for this pretty little outfit a lot this summer. The linen fabric is comfortable, light and airy, and its pretty details are perfect for any occasion – my favourite being spending a hot, sunny day with friends.

      Awww! Thanks, Tanvi! I’ve been running a lot so the legs are coming along. This romper is made of the softest linen. I’ll admit, I feel like I’m wearing a nighty when I wear this!

    I remember you said a great romper was coming. This is so cute with the hem details. And what a nice color, especially since Saturday was National Rosé Day!

      WHOA!!! How did I not know Saturday was National Rosé Day!!??? What a coincidence! LOL! Thanks for your kind comments. I don’t get too excited about clothes, but I pumped my fist when I found this at Marshall’s! LOL!

    Stunning look! You surely have the legs to wear an outfit like that, I’m not too sure it would look as good on me (also cause I don’t usually look good in rosé. Great little detail with the silver line and ruffles and I loooove the shoes and the necklace too!

      Thank you, Tine!! Too kind! I know rompers aren’t for everyone but they are surprisingly wearable. The colour is “pinker” in real life too so I’m thinking it’s a little easier to wear for fair-skinned people. Thanks for your kind comments!

    Omg what an awesome outfit! I find marshals is a bit of a hit or miss though.

    I loove that light rose pink color. The cold shoulder also makes this romper look prettier!
