The best part about lazy summer days is, well, being lazy! That means no thinking about what you're going to wear and just go. In the past, I've thrown on a dress and a jacket for just about any occasion. But this summer everything is changing with the introduction of rompers into my wardrobe. This one-piece garment has two great things going for it because it's comfortable and stylish! As rompers are growing in popularity, we have the choice of many different styles.

Choose from a slouchy style like the ADAM Louise Romper with Cuffed Sleeves which you can easily accessorize with jeweled sandals and an armful of bangles. If you're looking for a bit of sex appeal, try the Kimchi Blue Butterscotch Romper on for size. The criss-cross back and vintage inspired look is totally appropriate for a backyard BBQ or a casual date. Need another reason to buy a romper? You don't have to worry about preserving your modesty due to the shorts!

One of the first crafty things my mom taught me to do besides darning the holes in my socks is the art of crochet. I started out with a spool of string and a crochet hook and was able to make a small doily in no time. I went on to learn knitting from a family friend, but crochet has always been my favorite crafty activity.

So this summer I was pleasantly surprised to see more than a few crocheted clothes and accessories in stores. And they're hardly like anything your grandmother would ever wear. Before, you could find some crocheted beach coverups but now you can find jewelry like the Daydream Nation Black Tears Crochet Ruffle Necklace for a different way to use the so called prim and proper technique. Another favorite of mine is the Tibi Crochet Lace Top you can use at the poolside as a coverup or wear with a nude bra for a "is she or isn't she?" look. There's also plenty of tops and shirts with some crochet trim for just a touch of the summer trend.
