overalls: american eagle, shirt: forever 21, plaid button down: nautica men's, shoes: converse, lipstick: chanel
Even with pictures of girls in overalls spattered all over the fashion week street style feeds, overalls are still more "19th century adolescent boys playing along the Mississippi" than "popular spring summer 2014 trend." With my men's plaid shirt and converse, I think I probably fit better into the first category. But it's cool cause I have no problem admitting that I take sartorial inspiration from immature, little boys. Nbd.
I posted a bunch of shortall (which is still weird for me to say, or rather type) options a few posts ago. While I didn't try all of them on, these AE ones were perfect for me! My major problem when trying overalls in the past were that they were just too tight on the legs and midsection. While I can fully embrace the idea that all shapes and sizes are beautiful, it's harder to apply the same ideology to myself. Consequently I am pretty self conscious with emphasizing my midsection. These overalls may not be as flattering as say... a swishy maxi dress, they definitely do forgive more when compared to other shortalls. So even though I'm shorter than 5 foot 9 and heavier than 110 pounds, I too could wear some overalls.
