the morning after: overalls or overkill

The other day around 3AM, after finishing up a paper, I might have been a lot little delusional and began online shopping. As I might have mentioned before, the zara sale has been killing it lately and taking my wallet along for the ride. In my lapse of sanity, this floral overall type thing caught my eye for whatever reason.

For the most part, I can't get behind the whole overalls trend. Maybe cause my earliest memory with overalls is my mom trying to convince me that they were "cool" cause the cartoon Sabrina the teenage witch wore em. Besides for that, they aren't exactly good at hiding belly bulges, in fact, they're more likely to accentuate those bad boys. But like many things I'm exposed to in the blogosphere, my initial resistance has been chipped away and I'm almost at the point of acceptance. In contrast, I actually haven't seen many people wearing overalls in real life. Seems to be one of those internet condensed trends, or maybe I'm just not in the company of "hip" people. Funny how this works: see many people wearing it on the internet= want to wear, see many people in real life (or really at college) wearing it= do not want to wear.

While waiting for it to arrive in the mail I made 3 outfits to see how I could actually wear said overalls, even though there's a 70% chance they will be returned...

overalls take 1
overalls take 3
overalls take 2


  1. Oooh, I love overalls. And I'm not exactly the skinny girl. It's all about how you style them. I'm pretty sure you can rock them. Go on, try it.

  2. I love the third one! Great

  3. Isn't it crazy how seeing overalls everywhere can change your attitude? I was seriously in the same frame of mind. All I could think was: "Seriously? Overalls are coming back? What is this world coming to?"
    But now I'm seriously considering getting a pair of them!

  4. oh no sleep deprived online shopping, it could have been worse, at least you have some good styling ideas! ive had the same experience with the overall trend, residual 90s ideas that are putting me off, kinda making me feel old that they are coming back in fashion. good luck, you might always be surprised when they arrive

  5. HAha I know exactly how you feel, I am buying and returning so much with all these discounts! I adore the outfits you created though, you should definitely keep the overalls!

  6. I WISH I could rock overalls :) And I love that you were online shopping at 3am...hey, after completing a paper you probably deserved it!

  7. It's nice shopping at 2 AM! To see beautiful things and to get what we really wish! I liked the floral overall! I used to return some things in the past, now I don't :) it's true, I also don't see many people wearing overalls on the streets... but they look nice!

  8. oh my golly. i need that floral overall. great find.


  9. i can definitely see why you bought those overalls. love all three styling ideas, it looks really nice with the denim in 3rd set! actually surprised that i've resisted buying any kind of overalls so far, maybe i have winter to thank for that..

  10. The outfits are marvelous! Don't return any of them. I know how online shopping can be, sometimes I do it at the worst times! Lately my wallet has been getting a chip off thanks to camera equipment, but it's worth it!

  11. I loved Sabrina The Teenage Witch! I watched it religiously haha! The TGIF line up was the best! I totally hear you on these trends...I haven't seen people in "real life" wear overalls either (and maybe I don't hang out with hip stylish people either lolll). Can't wait to see you wear your Zara floral overalls!

  12. well, to be honest I don't quite dig overalls (of course I had some when I was a little girl). though I must admit that floral one is pretty nice actually and I'm curious about the fact how you will wear it in real life ;)
