Hello and welcome to Dressed for My Day! I’m so glad you’ve stopped in for a little style inspiration. Since so many of you seemed to enjoy my Old Navy try-on session last week, I decided to style an ON utility romper today. I’m loving the “utility” trend, and I especially like it in a romper or jumpsuit. Let’s see how I styled this ecru utility romper from Old Navy for summer.
It’s taken me a while to get on board with jumpsuits and rompers. The truth is, while I’ve shown several here on the blog in the past three summers, this is the first summer I’ve actually worn one. Ha! Now you know. But I think I’ve hit my stride with utility jumpers and rompers. Unlike so many of the flimsier ones (which are absolutely darling!), these don’t reveal all my lumps and bumps, ahem. They’re a little more forgiving.
In fact, as I’m writing this post, I’m wearing my Outerknown S.E.A. Suit, which is a full length green utility jumper. It is so comfortable! You’ll see it again in tomorrow’s How I Really Dressed for My Day post, but I also showed it here.
I also like that utility jumpers and rompers just kind of beg to be worn more casually. I don’t feel the need to wear heels or dress it up. I did plan to share this ecru utility romper with sandals, too. But I guess I forgot. Anyhow, you can absolutely imagine that it would look great with sandals, too. But I do think the utility romper is oh so perfect with my leather sneakers (more economical option).
I kept my accessories very minimal with this ecru utility romper. Despite the fact that the romper is in a soft neutral, I think there’s plenty going on with it. So there’s no need to overdo the accessories.
I just wore my bold gold hoop earrings, a simple gold bracelet (similar) and my Nordgreen Infinity watch with a gold mesh band. I didn’t bother with a necklace and opted for that pared back look instead. I carried my canvas crossbody camera bag because it has that same utilitarian vibe as the ecru utility romper. Unfortunately, my bag is sold out, but they still have the leather versions. Oh, and they’re nicely marked down.
This ecru utility romper fits really nicely, true to size. I’m wearing a regular medium. Remember, I’m 5’8″ with fairly even proportions. So while I don’t have a long torso in comparison to the rest of my body, my torso is still fairly long just because of my height. But this ON ecru utility romper fits just fine in the crotch. So there’s that!
I also appreciate that this romper has buttons from the waist up, but also has a zipper placket below the waist. And of course there’s the operational tie waist band that allows you to cinch it a little snugger, which I like.
The utility romper also comes in a mustard yellow, an orange red, black and an army green. And sizes range from extra small to extra extra large, and include petite and tall categories. I just think this utility romper is a real winner all around because the price is sweet, too. It’s less than $50 and you’ll get 25% off through today only.
Alright, let’s go ahead and address the elephant in the room. What about going to the restroom??? Well, yeah. You do have to take it down, ladies. There is no trap door. Ha! But I’m only in the restroom for minutes of my day. For other jumpsuits and rompers I’ve not felt the desire to sacrifice those few minutes of comfort. But for this one (and my Outerknown S.E.A. Suit), I do.
But wait! There’s more. If you just really don’t like the idea of being so…um, exposed… while using the facilities, I suggest you consider wearing a small camisole or tee with it. That way, when you, um, do your thing, you’re no more exposed than normal. I suggest either one of these from Banana Republic (40% off) or this half camisole from Amazon.
Jumpsuits and rompers continue to trend. And this is one trend that has taken me a while to embrace. But I’m totally on board with this utility romper.
I’d love to hear from you today. Especially let me know if you have any questions about anything I’ve shown you here. Thank you so much for stopping in. I hope you have a lovely day!

Blessed for My Day
King David and the Israelites rejoiced with dancing and music and shouts of victory when they brought the ark of the covenant back into Jerusalem. They were enthusiastic not because they were bringing a religious relic back to the tabernacle, but because they knew the presence of God would rest above the ark. They were excited to have God’s very presence with them once again. They recalled all the ways God had blessed them through the years when He was present with them, guiding their ancestors out of slavery, through the wilderness and into the promised land.
Today, if you are a believer and follower of Christ, you have the presence of God living within you. Does that excite you? I admit to taking the presence of God for granted at times. But today let’s remember all the benefits of Christ in us. He guides us, frees us, protects us, reminds us of the words of Christ. He counsels us and prays for us when we cannot come up with the words. And He convicts us of sin, renews a right spirit within us and transforms us into the image of Christ. Wow! Maybe we should dance with joy!
So David and the elders of Israel and the commanders of thousands went to bring up the ark of the covenant of the Lord from the house of Obed-edom with rejoicing. And because God helped the Levites who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the Lord, they sacrificed seven bulls and seven rams. David was clothed with a robe of fine linen, as also were all the Levites who were carrying the ark, and the singers and Chenaniah the leader of the music of the singers. And David wore a linen ephod. So all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the Lord with shouting, to the sound of the horn, trumpets, and cymbals, and made loud music on harps and lyres. ~ 1 Chronicles 15:25-28
