Despite California being a desert, it can actually get quite hot and humid in the summer (especially when there’s not much sun on a summer day)! Sometimes, it even feels like we’re living in the tropics, and it can get really hard to dress both comfortably and stylishly in the heat. This is when rompers immediately come to mind because they’re not only super chic, they’re also super easy to wear because they’re one-pieces! 😀
When I first got this overall-inspired denim romper, though, I wasn’t quite sure how to wear it because it features a bit of a lower neckline (and honestly, I’m not that “gifted” in the chest department, if you haven’t noticed… *tears*).
On a hot and humid California day, though, this one piece seems like the perfect choice because it’s made of a soft denim fabric that’s breathable in the heat (and I must admit, the short hemline makes it even more functional too) 😉 I also love how the denim makes this romper a little reminiscent of the overalls that I used to wear as a child, making it an instantly fun and youthful look.
Since the sweetheart-neckline is a bit lower than I’m comfortable with, I layered a cotton tank underneath, letting the lace show to give the whole outfit a more feminine touch.
While I can pair this romper with a lace kimono and some gladiator lace-up sandals for a more bohemian chic look, I decided to style it with more of a street-style, casual vibe by pairing it with my favorite sneakers, which makes it the perfect outfit to wear to the fair or a picnic party this Labor Day weekend.
To give even more dimension to the whole ensemble, I tied a red plaid shirt around the waist to not only accentuate my (almost non-existent) curves, but to also add some movement to the lower half of the outfit as well. I love how the flannel could keep my legs warm if it ever gets a little chilly at night, and if it really gets too cold, I can always use the plaid shirt as a cover-up as well.
