black romper linen

Summer is upon us. After months and months of getting imprisoned in our own homes, we’re finally planning holidays, beach escapes, and poolside parties. The sun is out and so are the summer dresses aimed at beating the heat. Summer staples like breezy sundresses and short skirts will be making appearances in abundance but there are many other cute styles that could get you through the warm-weather in style. 

One of them is rompers. I know, I know. A black romper is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think about summer outfits. But if you’re aiming to look cool and effortless, a romper will pleasantly surprise you. Plus when you have all those picnics and mojitos waiting for you, who’s got the time to put together multiple-piece outfits? Throw on a romper and you’re ready to roll.

For my day out, I went with this black romper made of 100% linen. Even though the color is black, the 100% linen material makes it super breathable and even cooling. The romper features two flap pockets on the chest and a regular one on each side. You may not get to use the front ones but it’s reassuring, even joyful to know your dress has so many pockets. The waist-cinching tie lets you have that smart and sleek look. It has a band collar and delicate cap sleeves which bring a dressed up casual feel to it. All in all, I’ll choose this comfy romper over other redundant styles any day. 

I paired this piece with Alexandre Birman Clarita Mixed Jelly Flat Sandals. You can pair it with sneakers or wedges too but I found these sandals much more comfier and appropriate to the resort-style look I was aiming for. If you have been following me for a while, you’d know that Alexandre Birman is my one of my go-to for comfy shoes. 

These cute sandals feature a single T-bar strap and a tiny bow detailing on the crossover strap at mid-vamp. The jelly lining on the flat rubber sole is super smooth but doesn’t let your feet slip. The buckle-fastening ankle closure might be tedious for some but I don’t mind it. I can already see myself getting their money’s worth throughout the season.

I also added a fun accessory to this look – a beachy fedora hat made of seagrass. The hat has frayed edges and lets a little sunlight in on the sides which could help you produce some pretty cool photos too. 

Now all I need to find is a resort nestled in a tropical paradise and have my fill of summer fun. I can’t wait to style more warm-weather staples for you.
