of all of the trends to come back in recent years, the one i’ve waffled with the most is the return of my 7th grade uniform -denim overalls. after trying on a pair at madewell in preparation for my first insider event, i definitely felt nostalgic for my mid-90’s self (minus the bangs and bad skin). but in assessing my current lifestyle, i knew a pair of overalls would just sit in my closet 80% of the time. and therefore, i did the adult thing and practiced some shopping restraint.
and then something magical happened. in the midst of my recent closet purge, i remembered an item that i had purchased (ironically, also from madewell) last spring (of 2014) – a linen jumpsuit that definitely gave off an “overall” vibe. quickly i began dreaming of ways to incorporate it into my fall wardrobe rotation. and just like that, kendi (of kendi everyday) featured a post on styling her new pair of overalls and i had all the inspiration i needed.
bottom line? when in doubt, add stripes.
that should probably be stitched on a pillow somewhere.
