The Problem with Rompers





Happy Thursday everyone! Only one more day until the weekend! I know that mine is going to be super busy: catching up on some school work mostly. However, tomorrow night I am going to be showing off some thrifted wonderfullness in my school's Eating Disorder Awareness fashion show!

About 7 million women and 1 million men struggle with an eating disorder every year. Although I have never had an ED, like many young women, I have had my own personal issues with food and weight in the past.

Therefore, I am excited to have the opportunity to really get the word out on my campus about the damaging effects of eating disorders, while having a fun fashion show! For more information about eating disorders, click here.

Look how beautiful it was outside today! :) 

On a more lighter note, I love this romper. I bought it at one of my favorite thrift stores, where every Monday all clothing is half off. Unfortunately, I was not there on a Monday. However, it was a Saturday, so I decided to try things on, "hide them", take the risk, and come back Monday morning. Then I found this! 90's Express. It makes feel like Topanga Lawrence. I had to buy it. I couldn't risk it being gone on 1/2 price day.

The only annoying thing is that it is a romper. With a zipper in the back. What were these people thinking?   I can't rush to the bathroom in this dress; I'll just leave it at that.

However, I think the cuteness is definitely worth it. :)






Romper- Thrifted (Express brand)
Tights- ??? I have had them forever.
Boots- Thrifted 
Jacket- Thrifted
Purse- Thrifted 
Locket- Gift from elementary school; yeah, I have had this necklace for a long time. 


<3 P.S. You should all check out my friend M.'s new blog Parasols Please. She is adorable, and I can't wait to see what all she posts! :)
