Wednesday Wardrobe – The Petite Professor: Rompers & Jumpsuits

By Steph's Scribe @stephverni
Wednesday Wardrobe – The Petite Professor: Rompers & JumpsuitsSo maybe this romper does harken back to Orioles Orange (PMS 1655, a number I will never forget as the former director of publishing for the ballclub), but I love it. It’s by Victoria Beckham for Target and the cute scalloped top is flattering along with the romper being all one color. It’s a quality piece and it’s fun. A tan might help a little. 🙂

***

Jumpers and Rompers are HOT this year.

Why?

Because…

  • They are easy and breezy.
  • They are one piece, and a one-piece item (same color top and bottom) does not break the visual line of clothing, therefore making you look taller and often more slender.
  • They are comfortable.
  • They can be dressed up or down.
  • They are a great alternative to a skirt, dress, or pants.
  • They look elegant without trying very hard.

If you haven’t tried one yet, you may want to do so. You can find them everywhere, from Marshall’s to Anthropologie and Banana Republic (pictured below). You can spend very little or spend a fortune.

The two rompers I am wearing in today’s post were quite affordable. The orange one shown above I got last year, and is by Victoria Beckham made exclusively for Target. The other floral one below is from Marshall’s. This year, I bought a black romper with an open back, which I’ll save for a later post.

Even someone like me, who is petite (5’1″ with short, muscular legs), can wear this type of clothing. In high school, I was called “thunder thighs.” I’ve always had strong, muscular legs, and I tried not to let those words bother me. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been self-conscious of my legs ever since those days in high school, but with age comes wisdom, and now I don’t really care if my legs are “thunder thighs.” I’m not going to try to hide them all the time. I’ve learned to accept myself the way I am.

I’m still on the hunt for a jumpsuit, so let me know if you find one you love.

The lesson is always the same with dressing ourselves. We don’t have to have bodies like the models below, but that doesn’t mean we can’t love clothing and try to buy things that suit our frames.

We are too hard on ourselves.

Love yourself and be good to yourself.
