What’s My Age Again?

If I remember correctly, it was about 4 years ago that rompers for the non-toddler set started getting popular. At any rate, it was 4 years ago that I decided to give the trend a shot. It was a couple months before my 25th birthday and I remember thinking, “Well, Sarah, you’re not getting any younger. If you’re going to wear a onesie, you should do it before you turn 25.” I felt like there should be some kind of age limit on rompers, and I wasn’t sure exactly what it should be, but 24 seemed OK.

After I turned 25, I did wear my romper a couple more times, which I rationalized with the fact that I’m petite and therefore automatically seem younger than I am. That romper ended up shrinking length-wise (which as you can imagine is NOT comfortable) so I went romper-less for a couple years after turning 26. That was also when I started law school, so I was starting to feel too mature for them anyway.

But then the summer before I turned 28 (a year ago), it seemed like rompers got more momentum and they started popping up in stores like Loft. Well, Loft is for adults, right? I might not be able to pull off the rompers at Urban Outfitters anymore, but Loft is another story. So I decided that “grownup” rompers were still totally fine for anyone under 30. So I bought it, and I’ve worn it 3 times over the past year (here, here, and here).

Well, now I’m coming up on birthday #29, and I’ve bought yet another romper. And it’s entirely likely I will wear it (or that other romper, or another one that I haven’t even bought yet) for multiple years. But I won’t even have to keep pushing back the romper age limit because I just won’t count any higher than 29. See how that works? If there’s one thing that law school taught me, it’s how to rationalize pretty much anything.

It seems like every year, the first day of fall is still hot and the first day of spring is still cold. Makes it hard to get excited about the change of seasons. So you can imagine my excitement yesterday when I opened the door to my balcony to find sunshine and a chill in the air!

I said “screw you” to grocery shopping and homework (OK, fine, I did both those things later in the day) and went downtown to enjoy the beautiful first day of fall with my other half. And because the first day of fall actually felt like fall, I went “fall out!” (get it? like all out? but fall? lame? OK.) New sweater! New felt hat! New dark lipstick! All these things have been waiting anxiously for their debut.

They got pretty much the best debut possible. The Sunday Funday rundown: a Starbucks run (for a pumpkin spice latte, of course), a long walk along the canal where we actually stopped to look at some of the memorials, and a scrumptious cajun dinner during which we tried to decide who looked better in my hat. I didn’t win, but it’s my hat and my blog and I get to wear it. So there.

Happy fall!

The Shirtdress Conundrum

Voila! –  my first shirtdress. I feel this is a good time to start an important philosophical discussion: why is a shirtdress called a shirtdress? Doesn’t every dress have some kind of shirt attached to it? Otherwise it would be a skirt.

Deep stuff, I know. Who knew a simple piece of clothing could be so existential?

You know what I’ve always loved about this skirt? I put it on and I’m automatically rocking mixed prints (which I love). So what do I do? I put yet another print on top. Because I’m always trying to out-do myself. I mean, as you can see below, this is not my first rodeo with this skirt. But never have I worn a printed top. Now I can say I have. Checking that off the bucket list. Next on the list: find an excuse to wear a fascinator. Because they are awesome.
