Elbow Blues


I just loved having the chance to borrow this romper from Hannah! The pattern is vaguely floral in a strange/pretty and abstract way, and the fabric is light and silky. It even has a really pretty keyhole back (which I ~conveniently didn't get a detailed photo of, but you can kind of see it in the side photo below). I wore it with dark blue tights, a beret, a big 'ol bow belt, and little black ankle boots. It's one of the items I wish I didn't have to give back (probably why it took me a while to return it...shh...), but I did. Promise.

I hope another girl borrows it sometime because I'd love to see how/what they'd layer it with for winter.

Outfit Details:
Blue and green hazy floral romper (French Connection UK; swap from Hannah)
Oversized black velvet bow belt (Melissa Velia
Gray knit beret (Forever 21)
Dark blue tights (Forever 21)
Black high-heeled booties (Charlotte Russe)


Here's how Hannah styled it:
Hannah of The Braided Bandit

Haha, we are so opposite in these photos! I'm all blue and winter-y, and Hannah is all golden and warm looking. I love that she channeled a 1950's pin-up girl for her outfit. The flower pin, high-heeled sandals, and fancy up-do dressed it up and made it look retro and glam.

How would you wear it?

  1. I'm getting REALLY into colored sheer tights lately. I think they can really add to an outfit. Love the romper!

  2. I really like how differently you two styled it. The blue on blue is so fun and then Hannah- who you are right is definitely channelling a pin-up girl. She looks so cute too!

  4. Aww Erica I love it! The bow belt and the shoes dress it up so prettily! It is really funny how different the colors are in both of ours! I love that you have such a beautiful indoor place to take pictures too.
    Have a great weekend!

  11. Those boots! I love them, they were the perfect addition to this romper-as was the bow belt! You look darling, and your lipstick is a wonderful shade.

  15. You both wore it so well! I'm glad I saw this now, it isn't quite warm enough for Rompers but with tights I think it'll work! (:
