Romper Ease

Yesterday I shared with you some cocktail party outfit ideas as an alternative to the little black dress.  As I mentioned, I've really been in to wearing shorts for an evening out on the town.  They are comfortable and cool in this 100+ degree weather we are experiencing here in the Queen City.  They are so versatile, because you can style them with different accents and accessories for so many unique looks!  Another thing I'm in love with right now is the romper.  Talk about easy.  There are so many fun options in both short and long lengths.  I think it is a playful alternative to wearing a dress.  I recently snatched this number from the 75% off sale rack at one of my favorite boutiques, KK Bloom, voted Charlotte's 2012 Best Boutique by Charlotte Magazine.  Using the scarf as a headband, pearl necklace and woven clutch, I've styled it in sophisticated manner below, but last week I wore it out for dinner, paired with tough metal accessories for a  much edgier look.  One other note of interest, I am SO excited to let you know KK Bloom will be offering a  $50 Gift Card Giveaway here on the Queen City Style!  Stay Tuned!!
