Concrete Catwalk // Romping Around

April 15, 2011
you guys, i LOVE rompers (need proof? done and done.)
sorry if you’re sick of them – i know they’re nothing new, but i can’t help it!
i got this one last summer on sale at NY&Co for $7 (ridiculous!)…
it’s this super-soft brushed silk, and the color is by far one of my faves.
also, can we talk hair for a quick second?
i’m getting some more blondey-blonde put in this afternoon
(see my play-by-play hair progression here)
but beyond the color, i’ve been looking for new ideas on ways to style it…
this braided top-knot was inspired by a tutorial i saw on cup of jo
(she has posted some great ones recently)
and i also LIVE for beth’syour cheapest accessory” series.
she shares some serious hair inspiration in her how-tos, and i want to try them all!
can you think of any other great inspiration or how-tos i need to know about?
(bonus points if it comes with detailed instructions!)
send ’em my way and have a grrrrrreat weekend, loves!
romper – NY&Co
earrings – banana republic
necklace – francesca’s
bracelets & handbag – j. crew
wedges – sam edelman, tj maxx
sunnies – forever21

    not that you would ever know this by looking at my hair, but i actually love watching hair tutorials on youtube and reading hair blogs. my fave is this chick: she has entertaining video tutorials, and i love her sassy personality.

    also, glad to see you in a little romp. i think they’re so cute and i don’t want the trend to be over!

    This romper is adorable on you! I love rompers, but have not been brave enough to give it a go.

    You look fab! I’m really digging rompers but alas…all of this junk in the trunk forbids it.

    I love rompers, so keep ’em coming, lady! You’re looking gorgeous, as usual, and I am in love with those striped wedges!

    I feel like I look like a 12 year-old in rompers, but this one looks fresh and cute on you…and those WEDGES??? I tried on the same pair in this stripe and leopard last week at Nordstrom Rack and now I am sad I didn’t snatch them up then…so awesome.

    LOVE this romp! Especially the color. And seriously, look at those calf muscles! Holy cow! I actually was meaning to look at hair tutorials today (no joke) so I’ll let you know if I find any good ones. Muah!

    More blonde! I love itttt! Summer comes around and I try to go as light as I can without looking too obvious ;) I adore this blue romper and how you paired it with these patterned wedges and necklace, looking fab as usual!

    Love the outfit and looking forward to seeing the hair. Have you tried a crown braid? Basically a french bread around your head rather than down the back. It’s all up off your neck and super elegant looking.

  • Reply Amanda April 16, 2011 at 2:15 am

    I adore that romper! The color is perfect, as well as the platforms!

  • Reply Kassandra April 17, 2011 at 12:59 am

    1. That romper is to die for.
    2. I’m thinking you should do some TCC TV with how-to’s for your adorable hair styles? I could definitely use the pointers…

    i am so jealous of your romping rompers! i look hideous in them, so not made for my shape! you look fab, dear :)

  • Reply Anjela April 17, 2011 at 10:53 pm

    Lovely color on you! I envy you for being able to wear rompers this time of year (we had a mini snow storm just hours ago…didn’t stick, but it reminded us winter’s not really over)
    I think rompers are great! They’re comfier than skirts in some ways, and more fun than shorts in other ways + so light and easy to wear! What’s not to love?!

    p.s.-sorry I haven’t stopped by your gorgeous blog for a while; real life just got crazy busy all of a sudden! I loved, LOVED your ‘midi skirt’ outfit–stunning!!!
