Over It All


Woven hat: Nordstrom| Earrings: HERE| Overalls: c/o HERE (size up)| White tee: Old| Red booties: Old, another option HERE

I haven't worn denim overalls in forever + a day! It wasn't because I didn't want them 😁  I've actually been on the hunt for the perfect pair for over a year now. I found a few options, but when it came down to it, for some reason or another I couldn't take the plunge. 

Admission: I purposely shied away from slimmer cuts, figuring that they would look awkward on my curvy frame. I was wrong! LOL! I snagged this pair online a week ago and I tell ya- it was the best decision I could have made! I ❤ the fit and style of this distressed pair- in fact they inspire me to be diligent about adding more denim overalls to my collection 😉

Once again the lesson is clear: Stepping outside of style norms can lead to a delightful plethora of new possibilities! There will be some hits and some misses - but the true hits are oh so worth it!

For my first go in my spanking brand new overalls, a ton of ideas rushed through my head. In fact, I almost felt overwhelmed with the options! For the sake of my sanity I opted for the minimal route, pairing them with a basic tee. But since I am not a minimalist, that didn't suffice so I added in a hat &  statement booties 😤 
I already have another idea lined up of how I'll style these on  the next go round, stay tuned Babes!!!

Until next time,
XO

  7. These are the perfect fit on you! I'm scared to try a pair myself because of my wide hips and pudgy belly. You have styled this beautifully. Thanks for sharing :)

  13. Hi Joi, I love denim overalls and currently own two pairs: blue and black.
    Like you I think we need to give things try before we say no, we can be very pleasantly surprised, like you in those overalls.

  15. How cute are you?! Love it. I've always thought the same thing about slim cut overalls, but you are showing me how wrong I was. Thanks so much for linking up with Fabulous Friday! Also, I am currently looking for co-hosts, so I hope you will consider the opportunity.
