Hi friends and TGIF! Today I’m excited to share my favorite summer rompers with you. I love summer rompers so much that I’ve been known to wear them with panty hose in the fall/winter! Yup! They’re so easy because you just throw them on and go without worrying about what top to pair with. You can go for a dressed-up with heels or keep it casual with flats. The only challenge with summer rompers is that if you need to go to the bathroom, it gets a little tricky. But let’s not focus on the negatives now okay. Before I get into all that though, let me tell you about the time I almost got myself stolen while on a solo trip to Nassau. Ok I might be pushing it with “stolen” but I’m all about being dramatic.
Disclaimer: I was a naive travel rookie child back then and would NEVER put myself in a situation like that on purpose again.
How I almost got stolen in Nassau
Alright so during my boat tour, we stopped at the Atlantis for a couple hours. While there, I met this guy and we got talking and hit it off. He was visiting from the US also but he and his team were there for work. We talked about everything: technology, culture, travel, language and life in general. I got comfortable real quick, and boy, was I in friend zone heaven lol. Now throughout our conversation, we didn’t discuss anything inappropriate, and there was no indication from either end that we were into each other “like that”.
He was staying at the Atlantis and so he showed me around the resort until it was time for me to head back to the boat. The resort had a dance club and so we decided to meet up there later that night along with some of his co-workers. Later that night, I got dressed and caught a cab to the Atlantis to meet up as agreed. The vibe was right, the music was popping and I had a great time! I even met some other people including another female solo traveler from Jamaica (I think). All in all, it was a fun night. So far so good right?
Disclaimer (again, in case you missed it above lol): I was a naive travel rookie child back then and would NEVER put myself in a situation like that on purpose again.
Again, no inappropriate conversations happened the entire night; I didn’t even dance with him. After we had all danced to our heart’s fill, we sat in the lobby to chat for a bit since the cabs wouldn’t start coming for an hour or so. Eventually, we decided to go up and order room service while I waited for my cab. My comfort zone barometer was on extra high at this point so I didn’t even think twice (yes, stupid! See disclaimer).
We got upstairs and he stayed inside while I went out on the balcony to enjoy the breeze and view, and that’s when it got weird. Out of nowhere, he started saying some inappropriate things to me (to put it mildly) and at that point it hit me! I was in a hotel room alone with a complete stranger who could be a killer for all I knew (Sorry mum)! I picked myself up as fast as both legs could carry me and sprinted right out of that room, down the many flights of stairs (wasn’t taking chances with the elevator), and out the door! Thankfully the hotel concierge was kind enough to keep me safe until a cab arrived, and I lived to tell the story.
And now, my roundup of summer rompers
Now that you’re done judging me, perhaps I can try and redeem myself. I’ve rounded up a ton of summer rompers below. Hope you find something you like!
If you judged me for being so stupid, I understand and I forgive you lol! Do you love rompers as much as I do? Ever put yourself in a bad situation like me? Let me know in the comments below.
Thanks so much for reading, be safe out there and catch you next week!
