it's romptastic!

My son and I both decided to wear rompers to the park the other day. It was romptastic! Seriously, we were the cutest kids at the park. My friend Jenae, who is awesome times ten, took these photographs. You can check her blog out here.

I have to tell you, I am SO EXCITED about this jumpsuit (because it is a jumpsuit really, not a romper, I just like to say "romptastic"). I am "SO EXCITED" because I got this romptastic jumpsuit at V.V. for SEVEN dollars. Oh how delightfully happy does this make me! Because I was so ready to bite the the jumpsuit bullet and purchase one of these lovelies from Saks online:

Under.Ligne by Doo.Ri
Jersey Jumpsuit
Sale $110.05

Ella Moss
Ginger Drop Print Jumpsuit
Sale $91.80

The only problem was, I couldn't decide which one! So now my decision has been made for me! Because hey, 7 dollars is a pretty penny less than one hundred dollars! Also, I seriously like my jumpsuit better than any of these except perhaps the two Ali Ro one's (they're romptastic times ten).

And I still may get the Ella Moss one; because it IS actually a romper, and it is definitely romptastic! But it sure is nice to get something so "on trend" for a decent price; because it may not be on trend for much longer! That said, I love this look and will probably end up wearing it far after the trend has passed. Because really, who cares?

Also, it's CANADA DAY so I have to go now and get my celebration on!

  16. You look so darn cute in that jumpsuit! I'm also loving the Milly jumpsuit, it looks great with the belt. If only I could pull those off. Also, I'm a little weirded out about going to the restroom in a hurry in one of those, lol.

  17. Your son is gorgeous! Looks lots like you I think.

    Good work on the jumpsuit! I have two now, and aren't they great to wear! You look ultra sophis in yours.

    I love a jumpsuit and I think yours is even better than those posh numbers. Great result.
    Oh yeah, and can I mention again how fantastic your new hair is?

    Oh, and little man is adorable as always. Give him some nibbles from his Auntie.

  21. it's so much more gratifying when you find the exact thing you're looking for and it's waaay less than the big labels. you both look adorable. and both your smiles match :-)


With two children and a tendency to procrastinate, I don't often return comments. But I do appreciate them! So thank you!
