While my style is very classic and feminine, I do love trying new trends. One trend I am really loving is the overlay romper. You may remember a bold striped one I wore previously. This dusty blue overlay lace romper has the same silhouette but is so whimsy and feminine. One aspect I really like about this it is how you can dress it up or down. In the same weekend, I wore this overlay lace romper to brunch with a straw hat. Then later to a night out with Johnny and friends at the new rooftop beer garden in downtown Norfolk. It’s definitely a very versatile piece and the dusty blue is a beautiful color.

Fitwise, I didn’t have any problems. Here, I am wearing a size small. I’m pretty brazen and actually didn’t even tape down the plunging neckline since I have a very small chest. However, ladies who are more well-endowed will want to use fashion tape to secure in place. Lengthwise, this dress was a dash long for me. I’m 5’3 even with 5-inch heels there were about two inches on the floor. I actually used some fashion tape to do a quick hem job. If you are petite and love this dress, I recommend taking it to a tailor and have them alter it from the waistline. This means they will cut the fabric from the top instead of the bottom, which hasĀ a beautiful scallop hem.

This overlay lace romper is also available in yellow and white, which would be perfect for brides! Plus, there is a romper version without the long skirt available in both this dusty blue and blush.
