2018 Cute Spring & Summer Rompers that we Need-Now // Sophia Ann Boutique

Needing a few new cute Spring and Summer Rompers? Look no further. I just have to talk about this gorgeous new romper from my clothing boutique, Sophia Ann Boutique! www.sophiaann.com

We all know that I’m personally obsessed with Rompers- and for a good reason! Not only are there so many different ways to wear them, you can dress them up or down with minimal effort for a day to night look.

SHOP: ROMPER // SIMILAR CARDIGAN (Under $20) // BAG // FLOPPY HAT

Rompers are extremely easy to wear- if I’m having “one of those days” where I just don’t feel like putting a full-on outfit together (mama’s, I know you know exactly what I’m talking about!) rompers and dresses are my go-to! They truly are closet staples!

This specific romper is classy and chic, is lined and has a gorgeous button-down v-neck detailing that I’m obsessed with! (It’s all about those details, ladies!) Woven light teal polyester fabric parades down a fitted, button down v-neck top bodice that flows down into adorable, relaxed, and breezy shorts. The long, flowy sleeves have elasticized cuffs and this romper is extremely flattering on all body types!

For a chic-and-effortless day look I’ll be pairing this specific romper with a flirty wedge ($32)- the cardigan, floppy hat, and bag that I linked above for you, and my favorite layering necklaces from Stella & Dot (I’ll post them below!)

1. Stella & Dot | Kari Layered Necklace (Also Available in Silver)

This necklace is an accessories wardrobe staple because it’s delicate and versatile to complement any look. It features a shiny gold (or silver) hammered pendant and arc that’s suspended from two delicate chains. You can wear them together as one cohesive look or they come apart so that you can wear each strand separately!

• Shiny Gold (or Silver) Finish
• 18″ 33″ with 2″ Extender
• Lobster Clasp Closure

I’ll be adding another layer to the Kari Necklace with:

2. Stella & Dot | Signature Engravable Disc Necklace (Also Available in Silver and Rose Gold)

These personalized beauties are a great gift for yourself or someone that you love! You can personalize with initials, name, dates, geographic coordinates, and more. I personally have my marriage monogram engraved on mine- and all engraving is complementary!

• 16″ length with 2″ extender.
• 23 mm round disc.
• Gold-plated brass. (Also Silver and Rose Gold)
• Pouch included

Just because Monday’s are boring doesn’t mean your outfit has to be!
