Like I said, overalls again real soon. If I could wear them every day, and sleep in them too, I would. I ended up with this gingham + overall pairing on accident one morning because I couldn't find my red striped tee and I was running late for work. I decided my chambray may not be the right color to do a denim-on-denim look with these overalls, so I grabbed my navy gingham and headed to the mirror for a look-see. At first, I feared they looked too farmer chic, so I added the heels to dress it all up a notch. I think staying in the same color family with the blues and purple helped the heels make more sense. Had it not been for the 30x30, I might have grabbed a pop-of-color flat instead.

Turns out, this is one of my favorite ways to wear my overalls now, which is great because I'm a big fan of gingham and I'm always on the lookout for more.

On another note, I've been linking to BonLook lately in my outfit credits because I get questions all the time about where my glasses are from. It looks like they don't carry my particular pair anymore, but I had such a fantastic experience with them that I want to rep all their glasses anyway. I related news, I fell asleep on mine this week. Yes, you read that right, not in them, as if I were wearing them, but on them. I managed to take them off before my afternoon nap, but I only got as far as tossing them down by my legs. Four hours later and my frames are totally smushed flat. I woke up in a tizzy, totally horrified at what I'd done. Luckily, these babies bent (carefully!) right back into place, good as new. Thank goodness. So, durable and cute. BonLook, you have my heart.


  1. I actually just bought a pair of glasses from BonLook yesterday because I love the frames you have! Thank you for letting the readers know where you got them from!

  2. stop being so cute. how do you look so cute in these overalls? seriously help me.

  3. You have me considering going into an American Eagle (for the first time in at least a year, more like two or three) and trying to scout out a pair of overalls. Also, this outfit is the cutest. I love the purple and gingham, and it's totally unexpected!


  4. unfortunately, i think the overalls might have just been an online exclusive. i hope they are in stores though!

  5. i'm so excited that you bought some! can't wait to see pics of the frames you chose!

  6. Cute, real cute! Adding the pop of colour with the shoes just does the whole outfit a nice little bit of colour justice.
