 overalls: american eagle, shirt: forever 21, plaid button down: nautica men's, shoes: converse, lipstick: chanel in Gabrielle

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.

  1. I like your styles, I believe it's easier to communicate if you dress like this, I will probably feel relaxed. I don't feel comfortable being with people dress so fancy!

  2. Mili I think overalls will probably always be around as they are classics and your shorter styled overalls with those converses are actually very cute! XOXO, Elif

  4. As my favourite Christina Aguilera says " we are beautiful, no matter what they say". I really think that every girl have a chance to look wonderful, no matter what size or height they are. Сharismatic personality and positive attitude to life is definitely the most important thing, to my mind:)
    Anyway, you look really great and original in that effortless attire, it must be really comfy:)
    Have a good day, dear!

  8. I just can't get on board with the overalls thing. I just... I don't ever want to feel THAT nostalgic. You can rock them though!

  12. I love the overall trend! I don't like that it's a trend, though. Does that make sense? You look really good on those (: I'm still trying to find myself a pair!

  14. So good. I think they look awesome on you. Fashion/style is all about personalizing to suit you and your style/body type. I'm on the petite side so certain things will never look flattering on me but, if I can make it work like you I know I'll be in the good. =)

  15. Ahh...this look is just so awesome. I wish I could rock overalls like you do. I mean, so perfectly styled with the plaid shirt around your waist and the converse! I think I need to start taking some fashion tips from immature little boys too;)!

  20. Course you can wear overalls! You look great, the plaid flannel breaks up the overalls just perfectly.
