Just Rompin’ Around: Zinke Intimates (Brooks Romper)

Not that you would know it, Blog Reader, but I actually have a tan in this outfit post.  Yes indeed (shock, horror) – whilst to the rest of Austin I may appear ‘English rose’* (the freckles are just about to peep through) I’m actually mildly bronzed after a few weeks in the Texan sun. Hurrah!

This outfit post shows another of my typical weekend-in-Austin styles.  I’m still finding it hard to keep cool when needing to go out and about but this Brooks Romper from Zinke intimates is great.  I wear it a lot with my high-waisted shorts from Topshop and it’s perfect for layering – I throw a cardigan or sweater over it in the evenings (if at all, it was 88 degrees again here today!)

It is available in four colours (navy, henna {mine}, black and blush) has adjustable straps and a pretty criss cross back.  Made of crepe de chine – a lightweight fabric which gives it quite an opulent look with its glossy yet subtle texture – it has a lovely luxe feel against the skin.

My friend Lindsay of the blog That Je Ne Sais Quoi (you may have seen her guest posting here on StyleOnTheCouch about lingerie) attended the Zinke sample sale in NYC last week and picked up a few gorgeous pieces for me to style:

From left to right: the XOXO Romper, cropped top and Drew Cami in black. I’m thinking of putting together a little outfit for Austin City Limits tomorrow from this set here.  A little silk, a little denim – I’ll be good to go.  Thanks Lindsay!

Have a great weekend Blog Reader! And if you’re in town for Austin City Limits, enjoy!
