Fashion Friday: Vacation Romp

While I go through my 100s of vacation photos to choose the top 10, would you settle for a vacation pic for Fashion Friday?  I tried to wear something I never dared before: a romper.  I'll admit although I wish I could be trendy, I feel like such a doofus when I actually follow through.  I'm hit with these feelings where I think, "Oh God!  Everyone must be thinking:  what is that lanky boy wearing?".  I'm too tall and skinny and have no curves.

$14.99 Romper from TJ Maxx

I tried on this romper before I went on vacation and only felt a little awkward in it, so I threw it in my luggage wondering if my mind would change during our flight to Mexico.  I decided to wear it while visiting ruins.  I wouldn't be swimming that day, so a romper made sense for this type of activity.  I paired the romper with a natural toned belt, comfy walking shoes, and chandelier earrings.  Suddenly, the outfit was transformed and I was actually very surprised when I reviewed the pictures on my camera.  Not bad!  Fashion success!  And I wasn't even expecting it.

Don't you just love when and outfit comes together? - Shirley
