Combinations to Try: The Blazer Romper

We all say that we can't wait for the weather to get nice so that we can spend more time outside. This weekend, I actually practiced what I preached by truly enjoying the long spot of great weather that we've had here in the Bay Area lately. I'm talking a high of 75, low of 51 with no rain in sight. So we continued the hubs' birthday celebration by playing a fun game of archery tag with some friends. What is archery tag, you ask? Well, it's a combination of archery and dodge ball that's played outside at a park. Instead of shooting at a bulls-eye, you're shooting your arrow at the opposing team in order to eliminate them from the game. But like dodge ball, all the arrows are in the center of the playing field, so teams must run toward each other to gather their arrows and then run back behind the safety of barriers. Then, of course, you try to hit members of the other team -- bow and arrow style -- without getting hit yourself. This game incorporates face gear and non-lethal arrows so it's all in good fun, especially if none of your friends are assholes. :)

To the look: is it a blazer? Is it a romper? Let's go with a bit of both. You get the classic blazer details -- the suit jacket cut -- with a mix of the one-piece leisure look of a romper (aka: the adult onesie). The romper gives you the fun spring vibe while the blazer adds some edge. Style tip: if you want to try this look out in the fall, switch out the booties for a pair of knee-high boots. Are you into this style combination? Also, I started watching Friday Night Lights on Hulu. I'm on season 3. I know it started (and ended) a million years ago. If any of you have seen it, let me know your thoughts.

  1. Oh it's perfect with the heels - kinda refined, but definitely fun. Archery tag sounds awesome - it reminds me of the initial scramble for weapons in "Hunger Games" lol.

  9. A suit romper is a new take for sure - it's really cute, but I can't imagine getting out of a long sleeve romper is an easy feat!

  14. First of all: I'm crazy about this look. The blazer romper is totally sexy and conservative simultaneously. Best of both worlds! I love the colors on you as well. Secondly: archery tag sounds so interesting! I bet my fiancé would love something like that. Me on the other hand? I'm not athletic at all, and running for two seconds has me winded haha. I'd be on the sidelines taking photos!
