Topshop Romper

If you live in my side of the world, you will know that it’s been a really hot summer. The heat and humidity have actually been quite unbearable and on most days, it’s hard to dress up.

I thought I’d share this Topshop romper today because I think it’s a great summer party outfit. The colour is perfect for summer and the open lace back is great for the ridiculously warm temperature.

To see the full outfit details, click below.

I included it in this Recycle Boutique haul. From memory, I was in a lookout for it since I saw it in a haul/vlog from Youtuber Fleurdeforce maybe 2+ years ago. I think she tried on a darker red version but I loved the lace back.

However, the back is another story.

The green stones from the jewellery worked well with the bright orange colour of the romper and added to the summery vibe as well.

If I didn’t wear jewellery, I’d opt for a waist belt like this other Karen Walker piece of mine:

Writing this post made me think so I have a question for all of you. In summer time, do you get inspired to get dressed up more or does the heat bother you too much?

If it’s super hot, I tend to dress as casual, comfy and cool as possible because I don’t like sweating and clothes sticking to me. The coolest thing in summer would be to wear the least amount of clothes as possible but not wearing much or wearing too short/revealing things isn’t really my style.

    What a gorgeous pop of colour, love Ve this on you. I’ve always wanted to wear a romper or jumpsuit but haven’t felt confident due to my lack of height! In the summer I tend to pare it back and keep it simple but do love to get dressed up more for evening events or parties
