Mom Style: Overalls

 

     Hi guys! When I decided to start my style posts for the blog, I knew I'd have to shoot these overalls eventually. Overalls became popular again, for the first time since the 90's, about a year or so ago. This pair has quite the search behind 'em. I started looking for a white pair almost immediately after I saw them in a Lucky magazine back in 2014. At this point, they were just becoming a trend, and were hard to find at a low price point, since it usually takes awhile for trends to hit "trendy" stores. They start on the runway, then magazines, then department and high end stores, and finally to "fast-fashion" stores (i.e. Forever 21, H&M). I wasn't looking to spend more than $20, which is my usual price point for very trendy items that draw my eye. I only splurge if it's a trend that I know will end up sticking around for awhile, or even turn into a classic or wardrobe staple. After about a month of research, I located this pair at Forever 21, for I think $18. They were the only pair of overalls on their entire site and it was pure luck that they were white. I had tried Old Navy, H&M, Urban Outfitters, American Eagle, Target, and basically anywhere that sold clothes. It was definitely what you'd call a quest.

     I surprisingly wear these often, and in a lot of different situations. They are awesome for working on projects around the house, running around at the park with Bailey, throwing on at the Lake House, going to the farmer's market, or dressing up for a shopping day. In one word, I'd say they're versatile.

      For how much I wear them, and for their price point, they are holding up pretty well. I haven't had any extra holes form, or buttons fall off. The white has stayed very white, as you can see, and they get comfier with every wear.

     Kristen shot these for me, and of course, we had to include Bailey...when we could pull her away from following her grandma's puppies around!

    That face. I can't.

     Definitely my most-worn flats, perfect to go with my most-worn (cough cough only) pair of overalls.
