Adult Onesie

I am a big fan of rompers. What’s not to love? Well, maybe there’s not so much to love when it’s potty break time, if ya know what I mean. But on the upside, it’s basically a grab-n-go outfit with very minimal thinking required. Literally a one-piece wonder. Recently, I decided to take one step further into the adult onesie world: a jumpsuit.

Tee Time

In the words of Jessica Simpson: The real me is a Southern girl (ok, more like a North East girl) with her Levi’s on (fine,these are not Levi’s) and an open heart (truth!). And somewhere in that song, doesn’t she talk about wearing a tee shirt? What I’m trying to say is, as much as I love putting together outfits and dressing up, I feel my bestest in oversized tee’s and jeans.

Last year, I did a post featuring one of my fave and comfiest tees. That particular outfit had two strikes against it in Dan’s eyes. 1) it was too loose ‘flowy’ and 2) ‘what’s the deal with the droopy pocket?’ He always referred to it as my drug-pocket tee. But really, what does one put in a silly little pocket like that? So when it was go-time to shoot this outfit, he rolled his eyes. Another drug pocket tee? Yes, Dan, yet another ‘too flowy’ top with a pocket that isn’t very useful. But what it lacks in functionality, it makes up in softness.  How pretty is this lavender hue?
