Outfit Details:
Bernie Dexter red checked playsuit: eBay
Red skirt: Amazon
Kimchi Blue t-strap flats: Urban Outfitters
Pinwheel necklace: Hello Holiday

I'm usually really subpar at remixing the pieces in my closet.  I have so many statement dresses -- and so few neutral separates -- that it makes it difficult for me to wear things in several different ways.  But I do love remixing a romper with a skirt!  This romper is really cute and retro, and I can finally wear it (I bought it in a size bigger than I normally would have and then had it altered), but the length of the shorts is a little long (and unflattering) on me.  But with this red skater skirt worn over it, the problem was solved!  I also decided to use the waist tie from the romper as a little belt with a bow on the skirt to tie (hah!) it all together.

This outfit is very patriotic-looking.  But since this week has been the first stretch of really hot summer days that we've had, I thought it was only fitting that I don a truly summery ensemble.

Have a great Thursday, and stay cool!

  1. Dang girl! You always get at it 100%! Love this look on you. And I saw recently that I can "shop" your wardrobe. This...this may be a problem. Not for me. But my bank account!

  2. Really love this outfit! It's got such a pin up feel about it with the halterneck and check print :) Really cute on you!

  3. Super cute! I love the way you styled the romper with a skirt! The two look perfect together.

  4. I think a skirt with a romper is such a creative remix!

  5. That's absolutely adorable, very creative! I have the same problem with having too many dresses, and then all I feel like I can ever do to change them up is wear them with a different cardigan. I'm trying to incorporate more separates though!


  6. Very cute look!!))

  7. Genius! It looks like those two pieces were meant to be.


  8. Absolutely beautiful! I love the red and your necklace!

  9. haha, I kind of know what you mean with statement dresses like yours being hard to style in more than one way--they totally are unless it is winter and you add some tights and perhaps a jacket. But GOSH this dress is adorable, Sammi! I love that checkered pattern. You look picnic ready!

  10. oh i love this, you look so cute! anything gingham is always a winner in my book, and i love that you've worn a playsuit with a skirt, i never really wear my clothes in any way other than how they were intended (i.e. a dress as a dress, skirt as a skirt) but maybe i should branch out a little cause you've made a great little combination here!
