I don’t know how long its been since I’ve worn overalls. I just never thought of myself as someone who would look good in them. As some of my friends like to tell me, I sometimes have a New England mom look. Now, I don’t really know what that entails or whether that’s a really bad thing or a good thing. I guess it’s up to interpretation. My whole point is that overalls don’t quite go well with “that” whole get up.
But man, have I been missing out on a whole world of comfort. These overalls are like sweatpants on steroids. Because they still qualify as a cute outfit without people giving you the side-eye that you’re wearing something as comfortable and casual as sweatpants in public. Mind you, I have absolutely nothing against sweatpants. In fact, I have too many pairs at home and I ONLY wore sweatpants in middle school. It’s just that when you live downtown and everyone around you is dressed nicely 24/7, it’s hard to put up a brave face and wear sweats whenever you want.
When I walked out with this outfit, I felt like I was wearing pyjamas. The black is perfect because you can pair it with almost any colour shirt underneath- white, grey, tan… or if you’re more adventurous you could go with some pastels or any colour really!
The fabric is super light weight and the wide legs open up space for air to flow out and about! It’s really the perfect summer outfit! Mind you, I wore it on a very hot and humid day and I made it out alive! When I was wearing these, I felt like I could go run a marathon or do the splits…both something I’ve never done before, with the exception of the splits, but I haven’t been able to do that since I was 4 years old.
I just paired it with a pair of white shoes but there are endless possibilities! You could go with some white sneakers or sandals too!! In fact, I think tan sandals would look so cute with these!
I also brought my little brown shoulder bag along with me that day and the gold chains really dressed up the outfit! Black and gold are probably one of my favourite colour combinations so it definitely worked out well!
I was thinking that even a small backpack could look really good too or a big shoulder bag if you have a lot of stuff to carry around (like me).
That’s it for today!!!
