Romp Around



I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect black romper, and was beyond thrilled when I found one this weekend. One of the best perks about living here in VA is the fact that J. Crew has a call and distribution center. Each month they have an open box sale with the lowest prices you will ever see for J. Crew pieces. Which are the current or past season, too, might I add! This past weekend I went and snagged some fabulous deals, one of them being this romper. Originally $130 at Madewell, and I paid $10 at the box sale. Can you say steal?

Outfits Details: Romper – J. Crew, Baubles – Francesca’s Collections, Sun hat – Forever 21, Wedges – Dolce Vita for Target.


I fully intend on getting a strapless top or even a bandeau to cover the depth of the romper, but I could hardly wait to wear it and did not want to wait for the perfect one to show up. The necklace is one of my favorite jewelry pieces, that I hardly get to wear given its size. But the bright coral color is perfect for spring, and added just the splash of color I wanted here. I grabbed this hat literally on my way out the door, thinking it might add to the whole ensemble – and I’m glad I did. Perfect.

    Gorgeous. Can’t believe the deal on that Romper. I think the box sales could be worth a trip to VA all on it’s own.

    What a steal!!! I have never heard of these box sales, I must make sure there’s one going on the next time the bf and I go down there.

    PS I looooove rompers, but I don’t wear them :(- I owned one and the getting naked in the ladies’ totally too cumbersome for my lazy self.

    You are just so ridiculously stylish, and the necklace and big floppy hat are the perfect accessories to that romper. I’m so jealous you get to go to these J. Crew open box sales! I had no idea something like that existed.

    You look absolutely stunning in these photos! I really think the floppy hat and necklace make the outfit. They’re so chic!

    And those were the wedges you tweeted about a few weeks ago! Now I’m definitely thinking I need to get myself over to a Target and snatch up a pair. . . ๐Ÿ™‚

    Um, where do I start? First of all, so jealous of your ridiculous access to J. Crew at astronomical low prices. LOL. This romper is a WIN. The necklace is literally perfection. I’m so going to be a spokesperson for sun hats this season. Didn’t know Forever 21 had them – will be heading there immediately. You’ve made me hit my hyperbole threshold for the day with this outfit alone. Thanks, Marissa. Thanks a lot.
