a little romper never hurt nobody










Romper: Gambita Kira romper by Yumi Kim (c/o)  |  Necklace: J.Crew (similar) |  Bracelets: Anthropologie, J.Crew, Sorrelli (c/o)  |  Bag: Michael by Michael KORS (similar)  |  Wedges: DVF

For those who know me well, it’s no secret that I can’t resist a good romper. It’s a one and done, comfortable & chic solution in my opinion and I just love ’em. They’re petite friendly, which can be hard to come by as well.

When Caroline at Gambita first reached out to me, I thought my pint sized prayers had been answered. Gambita is a petite friendly site full of bright prints and fitted silhouettes that cater towards the petite body type. I’ve come to appreciate those who understand that every measurement or size depends on who is taking them. There’s a reason why I make friends with my tailor… I see him way too often. I quickly learned right out of college that it was worth it to customize my clothes to fit me personally. The best thing about Gambita is that it aims to do that for you – eliminating the need for your tailor. I love that they’re empowering other petites to shop in a savvy way and helping us find cute pieces that fit well.

This romper is mayyybe one of my favorite things that I’ve ever put on. The fit is perfect (not too short or long) and I love a good sleeve/shorts combination. The bright colors really pop and make this a statement piece that you could transition into fall with a forest green or navy cardigan and boots. All in all, I’m a huge fan of the piece and Caroline + Gambita for making my petite dreams come true!
