moving day




Shirt: Proenza Schouler (similar style here); Overalls: Lee (similar style here); Hat: Topshop (similar style here); Necklace: Dannijo; Shoes: Carvela; Sunglasses: Karen Walker & a random pair from a concert festival (similar style here)

Considering my closet has been somewhat in shambles since moving, I've been living in these overalls on the weekends. While I'll always be a sucker for more polished looks (like this outfit) there's a fun challenge in dressing up overalls. Granted, for most of this particular day of loading and unloading furniture, I wore my trusty Rodarte shirt, flats and a SF Giants cap -- but come dinner time, I swapped out a few key pieces to feel a bit more pulled together. Confession: I may have taken a tip or two from this gal (but what else is new?).

  5. Although I don't think I will ever embrace overalls as anything but awful for anyone but little kids, the rest of your ensemble is pretty fantastic! As always, your accessorizing is spot-on.

  29. Um yeah, OF COURSE you pulled off overalls! I don't think I can anymore (though, I gotta say I majorly rocked them with neon sports bras as a kid in the '90s lol), but I super love the look on you. It's so "moving chic"!

  42. I loooove this look Krystal - I just got some Asos overalls and wore them at LFW in a similar way, cuffed, with heels and a beanie - great minds think alike ;)
