STYLE GUIDE | THE FALL ROMPER

 

HOW TO TRANSITION THE ROMPER LOOK FOR COOLER WEATHER


As the weather gets a little cooler for the fall season, but not quite cool enough for thicker sweaters, I’ve decided to find a happy medium by pairing this romper with a maxi cardigan, booties, and a hat.  It still stays pretty warm here in Florida during this time of year and you can never tell what the weather will be like in a week or two…

We have had a few small cold fronts come through which allow the temps to get into the 70’s and cut out the humidity, it’s especially nice in the evenings!  I like to call this “The Big Tease” because it usually doesn’t last very long and we are back up to the 80’s almost 90’s again with the humidity in full swing and my hair getting frizzier by the second! Usually, by the end of October, it starts to calm down so it’s enjoyable to frolic outside again.

I’m absolutely obsessed with the maxi cardigans a.k.a. dusters that are out right now, I’ve loved this look for years!  I am especially partial to this super thin one I’m sporting in the photos.  Unfortunately, they have sold out online but I’ve linked a similar version for you here for under $20 dollars.  The best part of this trend is that it allows me to look fall-ish without sweating to death during the mid-day heat.

If you’re wondering about the romper I’m wearing, you can find it here in taupe.  I purchased the black version over the summer and wore it with some lace-up sandals.  My initial thought process when purchasing it was how easy it would be to transition it into my fall wardrobe based on the colors it came in.  I also like the way the front is a little drapey in the chest and it has adjustable straps.  I personally find it harder to find rompers that fit due to this.  The fabric is 100% viscose gauze crepe so beware it will shrink even if you hand wash it with cold water and do not put in the dryer, I repeat DO NOT PUT IN THE DRYER!  I usually go a size up knowing this or sometimes I cross my fingers and hope I can stretch it out a little while it’s still wet and lay it flat to dry.  Also, if you’re wondering what my lip color is it’s Iconic and I’ve posted it here.

The hat pictured has become a new favorite of mine and I’m sure you will see me sporting it quite a bit over the next few month on my Instagram (@thecottageboundblog).  You can find it at Gigi Pip a new store I found online and the owner, Ginger Parrish is super cute!  She is a hat lover as well and let me tell you the quality of her hats are amazing!  

I’m wearing a black pair of vintage Jeffrey Campbell booties in the photo but I think you could get away with any black bootie, lace-up or even peep-toe.  I’ve listed some of the similar products to my outfit below for your style inspiration.

  • Instagram would “succ” if it weren’t for you! Seriously guys, I mean it! I’m so thankful for you and your kind words, patience, and support! Thank you so much for following, liking, commenting, and interacting with my stories! Allowing me to get to know you as well as getting to know a little more about myself too if I’m honest! Thank you for being there, keeping me alive much like these succulents and helping me grow! Doing this is a learning process, but if it weren’t for you, I would have never found my true passion as a creator and for that I will forever be thankful! ❤️❤️❤️ .

  • I’ve been on a straw, raffia, and rattan binge here lately. I love the raw textures and natural colors. They also double as a pretty accessory lying around as home decor. What are your thoughts on this trend? 
Also, this cute jump suit was a steal under $30 and it comes in black!

  • Another lovely Farmer’s Market pic from this weekend! They have seriously upped their game on presentation and I really wanted that cool planter for my herbs! No I didn’t buy it (props only), but wouldn’t mind finding/buying one similar and stashing it in my office/craft room for 3 years before I actually put it to use... 😂 #vintagefinds #hoarder #guilty
