I’ve always wanted some overall shorts and I finally convinced myself to buy some! It was tempting to go for the boyfriend-jeans-style of overalls as well, but I figured I would get more use out of these with summer coming in full force.
I am so happy with them in every aspect (comfort, length, adjustability, and look). I always have trouble when it comes to one pieces (swimsuits, rompers, maxi skirts) because I have insanely long legs and no torso whatsoever. I always have the clothes too short on my legs, too long on my torso, or just too baggy and uncomfortable. The great thing about these overalls is that I was able to adjust the straps to a suitable length from my shoulders to my legs, without feeling squished in or drowned. Finally!
With spring flowers blooming, the temperature hitting the 80’s every day, and my SUPER BUSY summer life, I’ve been trying to just catch my breath since I got home. I’ve had every single day planned out for me, and although that means I am being productive in some aspect of my life or making money, it also means I haven’t got to enjoy my time off school as much as I’d like to.
Today just felt like a great time to sit on my porch, read a good book, and put on a cute outfit–and that time will come but hasn’t yet. My day has consisted of running, working, and filling out paper work for my recent acceptance of in-state tuition (HAHA loans, debt, and money out of my pocket!). I have finally just sat down to write this before I leave again tonight for another commitment (albeit a fun one!).
I honestly love being a 90’s kid and wish I could have experienced more of it, and more of any time before the 2000’s. I had overalls all growing up and in 8th grade, but haven’t worn any since and I forgot how awesome they are. I matched it with a striped shirt and pair of converse and I was good to go. Its a super versatile piece as well in that I can wear it with a sweater, to concerts, or just to lounge in in an old t-shirt and my Birkenstocks.
If I wanted to make it even more 90’s, I would add in my ruffled socks and possibly some high top black converse (once I get some). Otherwise, maybe a choker or a turtle neck. It doesn’t even have to be 90’s era at all–it could just be overalls in the present day and age however I decide to wear them.
Until next time 90’s babies✌🏻
