Overall Bliss

Ever since starting my upholstery business five years ago, I have found myself gravitating towards overalls for my workday wardrobe = doesn’t matter the shade nor the length, if you have overalls in your brick and mortar shop or your online boutique, chances are I have contemplated buying them . . .

SO, of course I was a “Sucker – Party of One” when I ran across this particular pair of overalls from Free People with its unique deep-V and flared-capri bottoms; quickly AFTER I had already fell in love with them [however] I discovered that not any ole top would work with these denim beauties :/

I needed either a baby tee with a vocal point directly in the middle of the chest [still hunting for that btw] OR a shirt that had a fun interesting repeat = ENTER the Cheers Blouse by Cabi! This champagne-colored sheer piece with its ombré dot pattern was exactly what this style-crazed gal was looking for!

I LOVE how it adds a downright playful vibe to this somewhat old-school feeling number while it’s poly chiffon fabric ALSO helps me stay cool when wearing fall-inspired outfits in San Diego‘s lingering Summer weather [yes, I’m talking about you, soon-to-be Santa Anas!] classic button front is just a bonus!

Then you add some dark frames, these cute velvet loafers [also by Cabi!] and a vintage radio-looking clutch and you’ve got yourself an outfit that screams with a triple-threat of character, autumn, and back-to-school AND it all started with just a pair of overalls!

Like it or don’t, I haven’t been this into overalls since my high school days ;) when I would rock a dark Quicksilver pair with a subtle flared leg and my favorite tye-dyed tee [think Laney Boggs from She’s All That] I just adore how they fit to my body AND how I feel with them on. Don’t knock’em until you try them!
