the two piece life.
recently, i had some interesting conversations about the romper from a male perspective. while i think they are a fun summer piece, i agree on the non-practical-ness of it, especially when you have to use the restroom. compared to jumpsuits, rompers tend to fit weird. so... enter the two piece.
as you may know, color is not my go-to. for years i've seen so many GFs wear Lilly Pulitzer and it always looks good on them. me... not so much. until i found this! this is actually my first LP piece, or should i say two piece? ha. either way, i am a fan of the two piece life. like a romper, it takes the guessing out of which top or bottom to wear. in addition the material of this two piece is made of scuba, which is one of my favorite materials. the key is tasteful. a tasteful two piece is one that has a high-waisted bottom (um, hello this one has a cute ruffle detail on the shorts!) to show just a tiny bit of midriff. also, the likelihood of a two piece fitting better than a one piece is much much higher and way more practical.
side happenings: met with the coolest chicks/brand last week @everlane which produces ethical clothing. they have an awesome slogan: know your factories. know your costs. always ask why. i cannot wait to work with them! the Nordstrom sale is still going strong, check out my latest post of tips & picks. as always, thanks for stopping by!
