We are hot and heavy in summer, here in Dallas, let me tell ya... I'm sticky and I'm inside for most of the day! Honestly the heat heavily affects what I want to wear. I usually don't wear pants in the summer, just so that my legs can breathe. That's probably why I love rompers so much!

All rompers are great, but my favorite summer ones are long sleeve! What? Yes. This Texas heat girl loves her long sleeve rompers. Here's why:

  1. Perfect for cold restaurants - One of my favorite things in the summer, is leaving a cold restaurant and walking into the warm sunshine; however, a lot of the time, I get a little chilly inside. Long sleeves keep your arms warm and your body temp comfy!
  2. Blocks sunburn - I have pale skin, so I'm more susceptible to sunburn. My shoulders get burned to a crisp if I don't wear sunscreen or cover them up. Long sleeves ensure that my shoulders don't fry to a crisp, especially on those days where I don't realize I'll be outside for a while. 
  3. Can roll up sleeves if you need to - Long sleeve rompers usually have flowy sleeves, so you can easily scrunch them up, if you get too warm.
  4. They are dressier/can be dressed up and down - Long sleeve rompers are automatically more formal than a sleeveless or strapless one. I'm not saying you'll be able to wear it to work, but you can get away with wearing them to a formal dinner by pairing it with heels or to a casual brunch, but pair it with flats or booties. Versatility is key!

Do you like long sleeve rompers? Do you wear them in the summer? 

Seroiusly, what's not to love? The one I'm wearing is from Nordstrom, under $100 and has pockets. #winning
