These overalls are a happy recent addition to my wardrobe. It feels like I’ve been seeing overalls everywhere lately, all over Pinterest and my favorite style inspo-outlets. They’ve been popping up in a multitude of styles, cuts and fabrics. But it seems my eye is always drawn back to the good old, classic denim version.
Initially, I had some mixed feelings about the idea of a grown woman wearing overalls. After all, there is a childlike appeal about them, backed up by the fact that as a kid I owned several well-worn pairs. So when I spotted these Levi’s in a thrift shop for next-to-nothing, I decided to give them a financially pain-free go. Funnily enough, once I pulled them on and hooked the clasps over my shoulders, I experienced a style deja vu: they felt exactly like I remember when I wore them as kid. There’s a playfulness and relaxed feel about them. I paired them here with some mules and this amazing BCBG trench, which I am so in love with (and will likely be featured repeatedly here on the blog).
Overall (<pun), I say yes to overalls. They are almost like an ‘outfit-to-go’. They speak for themselves, very little embellishment needed.
Hope everyone is enjoying this chilly Sunday. I plan to spend the rest of mine under the duvet. I see a major movie marathon in my immediate future, possibly accompanied by a glass of Shiraz (or two).
Happy Sunday Funday, Cheers
