Lets chat about rompers. Ever since seeing Gwyneth in this romper on Goop I have wanted a romper.
Then I saw her in this DVF romper which made me really want it. Sadly, this little DVF number is out of my price range and from 2011. So unless it shows up on Ebay for cheap this one ain’t happening.
I was in Forever 21 the other day doing a quick walk thru and I spotted a romper for cheap, $14 to be exact. I tried it on and actually quite liked it. I have never owned a romper or thought myself to be cool enough to sport a romper. I am not going to wear this out clubbing (not that I ever go clubbing anymore) but I thought it was cute for running errands and for the pool/ beach. Rompers are kind of weird and going to the bathroom may be pain, but I think it is a fun casual look. For $14 I figured if it was only used a beach cover up, no big deal. But it keeps haunting me that maybe Rompers are stupid and I am too old to sport this look. Here is the question is 30+ too old to wear a romper? Be honest.
I have seen Kourtney Kardashian and Jessica Alba sporting cute rompers and they both are moms and over 30, which leads me to believe maybe I can rock this look without looking like I am trying to be 21.
Thoughts? Is a romper best left for a 20 something? Or can a mom rock it for casual wear?
I could not find my romper online at F21 but I did find this super cute one:
Now on to my next random thought, Popsicles. I never bought the Zoku, the pop maker from Williams-Sonoma, I just wasn’t sure I wanted to spend the money ( I can be cheap about some things). Well my mom found me one at Homegoods for $6.99! It works perfectly. I made extra juice from my juicer this week, froze it and shocker, Sterling ate the whole Popsicle. Yep, he ate spinach and kale. I was a happy mom since he normally never touches the green stuff.
I made two different pops:
1) kale, spinach, apple, lime and cucumber
2) orange and carrot
The next day he requested two pops “orange and green”
Popsicle maker = genius way to get your kids to eat veggies.
And for the grown-ups, I see these Margarita and Strawberry Peach Vodka Pops being made in the near future. Who said Popsicles are just for kids?
