ode to overalls




Overalls: Vintage Lee (love this pair); Shirt: Everlane; Shoes: Christian Louboutin; Wallet: Proenza Schouler; Sunglasses: Coach; Necklaces: Jennifer Zeuner; Rings: Alexa Leigh, Katie Dean, The One I Love NYC; Watch: Michael Kors; iPhone case: Nicole Miller

I bought this pair of overalls over my first summer here in San Francisco (almost 4 or so years ago now). Oddly enough, I remember buying them for a few paint projects I had in the works, never fully intending to wear them out save for an occasional coffee run, paint splatters and all. 

Flash forward over the years, and I've managed to dress them up in ways I don't think overalls were ever intended to be worn (some good and some not so good). Admittedly, I have to say this is the part of fashion and trends in general that I can see why people deem it all too fickle (um, ya, that neon lucite clutch of mine is still sitting in my closet, gathering dust). But sometimes when the trend is a comfortable, broken-in boyfriend denim one-piece that harkens back to elementary school days, well I'm sold. Doesn't hurt that I always have something to paint in either.

  1. LOVE the overalls trend! 90s fashion is really making a comeback :) I found a pair at ZARA that I absolutely love and can't wait to wear.

  9. While I like rompers, I've never been one for overalls. You made these look very cute. I have a feeling the heels may have something to do with it! :-)

  17. Those are really great! I love the length and how they are almost like a wide leg, but not quite. Quite perfect. Love how you wear them with black pumps too!
