I’ll be real with ya’ll: overalls are one of those things I see on other people and think “those are SO cute on her. why can I not do overalls?!” That is, until, I tried on this pair of denim overalls from Madewell. I’d seen them online and thought they were adorable, so I told myself “you never know until you try.” So, I ordered them, tried them on as soon as the UPS man dropped off my box, and instantly fell in LOVE!
There are a few things I love about overalls:
- They make a statement. Even though overalls are super casual, they are bold and they’re different. So, when I wear mine, (as lame as this sounds), I just feel cool – while still being really casual and comfortable.
- They have lots of pockets! When I shot these overalls with the insanely talented Angie Garcia, I had my phone in a pocket, a pair of earrings in the other, and my apple watch in another, haha! I have an obsession with pockets, so overalls work for me.
- Show some skin, but still conservative. I think if you find the right pair of overalls, they can be super flattering. This pair in particular gives you super long legs, but without having to show too much skin. Unlike short cutoff shorts, you don’t have to constantly pull them down, which I really appreciate!
Also, this red striped shirt I’m wearing underneath is the bomb. I wore it in an instagram post recently (here) with skinny ankle jeans and loved it just as much. I can’t wait to pair it with cutoff shorts this summer at the lake, or with white skinny jeans for lunch dates!
What are your thoughts on denim overalls?! Have you tried them yet? Do you love them? If you haven’t tried them out yet, I say go for it!
