I actually had several other pieces/ideas picked out for this challenge – until late last week when I discovered that the high today was going to be about 85. As of this morning the high is actually going to be 95. In May. In freaking Omaha! What the heck?! Normally it should be right around late 60s-70s. Sigh. At least it’s going to cool off later this week and drop back to the normal range (and even slightly cooler than that).
This is actually a romper. An elastic sleeveless topped romper. Not only do I despise the top with a fiery passion, I hate rompers with a fiery passion! And no fat girl should wear a romper alone, especially this one. Trust me it does not look pretty!
But I bought it for three reasons:
- It’s easy to throw over a swimsuit in a hotel or at the lake. I’ve worn it that way several times now.
- The floral “shorts” are cute, comfortable and feel great on – I just have to wear a shirt over the top.
- It was $4 on clearance.
I actually should find a different white button down to pair with this if I ever wear it again – its just too long. I had to hitch up the bottom a bit, hence the belt securing and covering the rolled shirt bottom.
Short-sleeved White button down tunic: Lane Bryant (Jan 2011)
Black floral elastic romper: Target (August 2010)
Black Double Buckle Belt: Torrid (Jan 2011)
Pink floral flip flops: Payless (April 2011)
Multi-chain dangle earrings: Target (Oct 2007)
And since this challenge *is* florals I decided to forgo finding another shoe and instead turned to my brand new flip flops. Who doesn’t need more floral in their life?
