So today’s post is kind of fun and cheesy all at the same time because my boyfriend/photographer/best friend, Paris is crashing this post! Plus I’m introducing a new section of my blog (I’m not sure if Paris knows this is going to be a thing now… Surprise!): His & Hers.
Paris and I have been together for an embarrassingly long time – let’s just say since high school. And before we were going “steady” we were besties so we have always been big parts of each others lives. Since we spend so much time together, our style has always somewhat complimented each other — which is not always a good thing (we both have made our fair share of fashion no-nos), but funny to think back on none the less. Honestly, I think my fashion don’ts are way more embarrassing than any of his, but there are a few high school dance couple costumes that should never see the light of day again — oh high school…
Despite our previous and perhaps questionable choices, today we made the right one with BucketFeet – a cool, art inspired shoe brand that we can’t stop wearing. Not only are their shoes so dang comfortable (they have these awesome massaging polka dots in them that I’m obsessed with) but they are also crazy cute. I love the paint splatter pattern of my shoes and the simple yet statement print on Paris’s that look great with almost everything.
So today’s post features my second go-around with the overall all (first was here). Learning that wearing them is super easy and fun, definitely a trend I would recommend trying. As I told you before, I opted for a skinny fit opposed to the boyfriend cut that most people (and bloggers) have been wearing, in order to keep myself from looking like a child. Overall (ha) the overall trend is really easy and effortless trend to try out this spring, and with some of the super cheap overall options out there at Urban Outfitters and Macy’s you can test it out without breaking the bank!
Everyone is wearing the Current Elliot Ranch Hand Overalls (lighter wash here and here) which look AMAZING on tall-skinny-modelesque types… which I am not – short girls rule! They are also $350 dollars, which is a little steep for me to try a trend – I like to try to stick to under $75 when trig out a trend that may not translate into other seasons! With overalls it’s really important to dress for your body type. I love a good boyfriend Jean, but since I walk the line between curvy and petite all while being five foot nothing, BF jeans do NOTHING for my body! I can still get away with carefully wearing them (last seen here), but when It came to overalls, I had to go with a skinny jean! The skinny shape helped actually give me a figure and kept me from looking like a toddler (well, I hope!)
I have a fun announcement (drum roll please) I am now a fashion contributor for Jet Magazine Online – hooray! I talk all about overalls and other spring trends in my latest article:9 Spring Trends You Should Try! You can check it out here, I would love to know what you think! Oh and what about overalls in general? Is this a trend to love or to leave? Style sound off, ready – GO!
