Put your hand-up if your jammies and loungewear (you know, the gear you schlep around the house in, praying that no one drops by for an unexpected visit) are paper-thin t-shirts from high school and hole-y sweat pants that are probably from the same era. Now put your other hand up if you work from home and those same t-shirts and sweat pants are on regular rotation and at four-o-clock you basically still look like you just dragged yourself outta bed. I’m with ya (like VERY much with ya…ahem), but I have good news – adult rompers are a thing!! I mean, I’m sure that’s no surprise to most of you; they’ve kinda been all over the place for the past year or two, but the rompers I’ma tell you about are not those slinky, backless little numbers meant for girls who have places to go past 8 pm on a Friday night, these little babies are basically next level jammies (that you can leave the house in – hellllo).
Meet Smash + Tess
I found Smash + Tess on Instagram (surprise!) and after ordering the Saturday Romper (which doesn’t look like it’s available anymore) and wearing it every.single.day for a week, I ordered the Getaway Romper so I could do laundry. You guys. These rompers are amazzzzzzzing! They are SUPER soft and the fit is perfect (i.e. not too tight in the spots where tight is not so hot, but also not loose and droopy either). And they have pockets!! And even though the company’s website describes them as pyjamas, when you put them on, you feel a heck of a lot more like a confident, put-together, productive member of society, than you do when you’re bumming around in your hubby’s old t-shirt.
I was gonna save this post for a few weeks, but I got an e-mail from Smash + Tess the other day, announcing their #rompsohard giveaway, so I figured I’d publish it now (…and hope for some brownie points)! You can win any item from their fall collection, which drops in early September, by posting a pic on social media and tagging them. I caught some pics of the collection on their Instagram story a few weeks ago and win or not, another romper is definitely in my future (don’t judge…).
