Outfit of The Day: A Romper in Real Life On Someone Over 40

Here I am (well into my 40’s) and I still love rompers as much today as I did when I was a little girl. Good thing they have grown up too. I have already posted tips on how to ensure a romper is age appropriate, but the major takeaway is to be certain the shorts are long enough (if you have to ask what that means, you need to read my post!). I love rompers because they are simple to style, comfortable and not as fussy as dresses. Believe it or not, this one (which is one of my absolute favorites) is from Old Navy, as are my sandals! Actually I have been turning to Old Navy a lot these days – more on that in a later post. By the way, link to everything I am wearing are down at the bottom of this post.

Celebrity Style Steal: Eva Longoria Plays It Cool In A Crisp White Blazer

Eva Longoria takes an easy romper and gives it a chic update with a blazer and pumps. A romper is so easy to wear in the summer. You don’t have to worry about matching and it is a versatile piece you can dress up or down. Try this black and white polka dot romper by Madewell. The romper by itself has a casual, playful vibe (read our recent post “How to wear a romper when you’re over 40”) but to give it a cleaner and more dressed up look pair it with this AQUA longline white blazer.
