Will You Be My Valentine? {The Shopping Bag Giveaway}

Ever since rompers came onto the scene a few years ago, I have loved the way that they look on everybody else but never on me. I’ve never been successful in finding one that fits me properly, not to mention I can’t get past the fact that I feel like I’m wearing an adult onesie. Lucky for me, this little number from The Shopping Bag turned all that around.

The love that I have for this romper is real; it has cast aside all my previous opinions and notions on rompers. From the thick, high-quality material to the long sleeves to the subtle sexiness of the plunging V-neck, this outfit is a far cry from the child-like rompers that I’ve refused to wear outside the dressing room.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to change up my hair and makeup from my typical daily look, so I opted for loose wavy curls and a subtle smokey eye with bronze and plum tones. I also enjoyed layering a delicate, classic rhinestone lariate necklace with a longer tassel necklace to keep the overall outfit girly but with just a subtle hint of edge. Plus, what romantic holiday wouldn’t be complete without my all-time favorite novel in clutch form? I live and die for that purse.

Lucky for all of you, The Shopping Bag is hosting a Valentine’s Day giveaway for all my sweet readers! Don’t miss out on your chance to win a $25 gift card, the Don’t Forget Knot Ring (pictured as a midi-ring in my photos above!), and a Box of Chocolate Lip Glosses Set.

The giveaway runs through this Friday, Feb. 13. Good luck!

    Thanks, girl! In the frigid Midwest temps, I had no choice but to pair this with tights. πŸ™‚ However, I am looking forward to wearing it with some strappy sandals come summer for a night out.

  2. 5.9.15

    Thanks, Caroline! Your words mean a lot. Hope you had a great weekend!

  3. 5.9.15

    You and your words are the sweetest, thank you! You know me – I'm all about keeping it classic and sophisticated no matter what the outfit. This is the first and only romper I've worn where the proportions are right on me, too. I actually found that the tights helped balance everything out!

  4. 5.9.15

    Thanks so much, Erin! I'm hoping I find a few others now that fit me correctly. πŸ™‚

  5. 5.9.15

    Thanks, girl! I've been working hard to up my curly, loose hair skills. Maybe we could find you a cute maternity romper – that probably would be the cutest thing ever!

  6. 5.9.15

    Thanks so much, girl! I'm hoping this is a good sign of things to come when I start looking for some summer rompers.

  7. 2.20.15

    Thanks, Kate! πŸ™‚

  8. 2.20.15

    Thank you!

  9. 2.20.15

    Thanks, Kari! I'm self-conscious about my thighs, too, so I pretty much wear tights whenever I can to help slim them down.

  10. 2.20.15

    Thank you! I'm so glad to finally have a romper in my closet that fits and is flattering – that's a hard thing to come by!

  11. 2.20.15

    Thank you so much!

  12. 2.20.15

    Me too! I'm glad there isn't a fashion rule anymore about not wearing the two together. πŸ™‚

  13. 2.20.15

    You are so sweet, thank you!

  14. 2.20.15

    Girl, I have the same issue! I'm glad this one finally fit me!

  15. 2.20.15

    Don't mind me – just catching up on some comments that got away from me. πŸ™‚ You're so sweet lady, thanks for your kind words!

    I LOVE rompers and I try them on all the time but haven't found one that I like on me. I'm not in love with my thighs and feel self conscious exposing them. I love that you paired this one with tights and heels. Very 40's chic of you! πŸ˜‰

    Rompers are my ultimate favorite and that one is so flattering on you! I've been obsessed with that Kate Spade bag since the first time I saw it. This whole look is gorgeous!

  24. 2.11.15

    You're totally pulling off the romper look–the soft color and fabric make it totally wearable. I love it with the necklace and that fun clutch!

    I'm the same – never liked rompers on me – but this is great on you! You look wonderful – the hair, the clutch, sooo pretty! πŸ™‚

    This is so cute! I wish I could wear rompers, I'm 5'9" and my torso is long and so are my legs and nothing ever fits! Boo! But seriously, this is super cute on you!

    Thanks, Jana! I'm always looking for an excuse to bust out that clutch. πŸ™‚

  31. 2.10.15

    Thank you!

  32. 2.10.15

    You look AMAZING! I love the way you accessorized the romper–especially with that book clutch! SO perfect. πŸ™‚

    Tights + romper = win!

  34. 2.10.15

    I'm so glad! You definitely should check this one out – it fits like a dream! I have a size Medium for reference, but I probably could've gotten away with a small. The v-neck was a bit big for me, so I actually had to safety pin it shut to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions during these photos. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!

  35. 2.10.15

    Thank you, Claire! It only seemed natural to me to pair it with tights, but I guess my inexperience with rompers shows since you and a few others commented that tights typically aren't the norm with them, even in the winter!

  36. 2.10.15

    Awe, thank you so much!

  37. 2.10.15

    You shouldn't miss it too much! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by Ada, Happy Valentine's Day!

  38. 2.10.15

    Thank you! And yes – the things we do to shoot outfit posts in the dead of winter …

  39. 2.10.15

    You're so sweet, thanks girl! Gotta have those tights this time of year.

  40. 2.10.15

    I guess I thought it only would be natural to pair this romper with tights since it's cold out and to make it a bit dressier, but I suppose that definitely is not the norm based on some comments I'm getting! Goes to show my inexperience in the ways of styling a romper. πŸ™‚

    The love I HAVE for that romper is real. I've been looking for one like it because I love the tights and romper look! All my rompers are sleeveless so won't quite work! Love this look!

  42. 2.10.15

    Love love love this romper. But what I really love is that you found a way to wear it NOW! i probably would have thought I had to put it away until April or May when the temps started warming up. But the black tights are perfect! I love this whole look! {Stopping by from The Creative Closet linkup.}

  43. 2.10.15

    You look incredible…navy is def a good look on you and you pull off the romper amazingly. love it!

    You look stunning here, your hair has me jealous πŸ˜‰ Great idea to wear tights under the romper!

  47. 2.9.15

    Oh my gosh! How did I never think to put tights on under my romper for Winter???? Genius! You look stunning! And I totally know what you mean about feeling like you are in an adult onsie. I felt that way for a long time, but there are so many cute options I just had to find the right ones.

  48. 2.9.15

    Thank YOU! You all are making my day with your kind comments. And, haha – I know, it is kind of amazing that rompers are grownup onesies. I'm all for them as long as they fit me right!

  49. 2.9.15

    Thanks, girl! I definitely think the color and sleeves sold me on this particular romper. It made it feel just a tad more grown up to my taste. πŸ™‚

  50. 2.9.15

    My goodness – all you girls are making me blush! Thanks so much, your kind words mean so much to me. Shooting in manual is a beautiful thing – these pictures were taken at 5:15 in the evening and we barely had any light left!

  51. 2.9.15

    Thanks, lady! That clutch was a birthday gift from my mom last year; never in a million years would I pay the nearly $330 price for it, though. There usually are a few during the Kate Spade surprise sales online!

  52. 2.9.15

    You are the sweetest, thanks girl!

  53. 2.9.15

    I understand what you mean! I have the opposite problem since I'm a little bit taller – the bottom portion of rompers rarely fit me right!

  54. 2.9.15

    Thank you! And, yes – you know that clutch is my prized possession.

  55. 2.9.15

    Absolutely, and this is the only one that's ever fit me correctly!

  56. 2.9.15

    You're so sweet, thank you!

  57. 2.9.15

    LOL, I know – even though I felt quite sassy in this outfit, I still couldn't get the onesie thing out of my head. πŸ™‚ Cheers to the week ahead!

  58. 2.9.15

    Thank you so much!

  59. 2.9.15

    you look amazing! love the tights with a romper too!

  60. 2.9.15

    Gorgeous girl! You look amazing and that romper is fabulous! Is it bad that my favorite part of them IS that it's like wearing an adult onesie?!? Haha hope you guys had a great weekend, too!

  61. 2.9.15

    Love it!! That romper is fabulous and it is perfect on your figure. Very flattering. Your hair and makeup are flawless too. You look stunning! I hope that you had a nice weekend too.

    This romper is stunning!! I love the colour and it fits you like a dream! I've always loved the look of "fancy" rompers on other people but since I'm tall the proportions usually don't work for me. That clutch is so amazing, this whole look is so sophisticated!

  63. 2.9.15

    That romper looks so cute on you!! And your hair is beautiful! I would love to rock a romper one day!

    Love rompers– and that one looks gorgeous on you! Such a pretty color and I love the sleeves! Also, obsessed with your book clutch!

  65. 2.9.15

    That romper is absolutely fantastic. You look so gorgeous in these pics girl the lighting, makeup, clothes……everything is perfect!

  66. 2.9.15

    You look absolutely beautiful!! Love the loose waves on you. I'm totally with you on all your previous feelings about rompers, I try and and I try but so far I've only found one that has worked on me. Love the one you are wearing, I have a feeling I won't be getting to wear any this year, so I will live vicariously through you!

  67. 2.9.15

    You look stunning! Your hair looks amazing and that romper is perfect! That clutch is awesome too. I've seen those online, but never in stores.

  68. 2.9.15

    You are gorgeous!! Love this look on you! I'm with you on the rompers – they have to fit me perfectly or else they just don't work.

    Love this! I'm not a romper-girl, either- being so short, when I put one on I feel like I really look like a small child! That color is fantastic though, and looks great with the tights!
