It occurred to me recently that my affinity for overalls has a lot to do with my love of layering. Since adding these overalls to my closet, I've also picked up a vintage floral pinafore dress, and I've got one of those cute a-line denim overall dresses on my wishlist. I like the idea of skipping the jacket and wearing lots of pretty sleeves instead. Overalls = So many blouse options!
Because I'm predictable, I started by styling these with stripes. This was actually the exact outfit I had in mind for a pair of black overalls, all the way down to the blush heels from Loft. So, when I ordered a pair of these overalls in a 12 and they didn't quite fit, I sent them back and immediately ordered the next size in hopes that the outfit would become a reality. I'm happy to report that the size 14 was a great fit (if not a little more cropped than I'd expected). H&M, where sizes aren't real and you should try everything you think you miiiight fit into!
You're about to see a ton of these little wooden necklaces on the blog. Target had boxes of painted wooden beads on sale for one dollar, so obviously I bought them! I often feel like I don't have the exact necklace I want to wear with a particular outfit, so now I can just make one real quick when I'm getting dressed! Freaking brilliant. Target saves, y'all.
