Taking Overalls From Day to Night

Just when we thought overalls were merely a bad memory from our childhood, they began popping up all over the place as an up-and-coming trend. While the idea of strapping yourself into a pair now sounds completely terrifying, I'm here to tell you that it doesn't have to be. When I came across a pair of medium-wash distressed overalls during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I decided to jump right in a give them a try. Take a look at how I took one pair of overalls from day to night...

Day

Overalls: Nordstrom | Tee: Target (old) | Shoes: Forever 21 | Jacket: Target (old) Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: InPink | Bracelet: Alissa Michelle

Night

Overalls: Nordstrom | Blouse: LOFT | Heels: 2 Lips | Necklace: ILY Couture (similar) | Watch: Akribos XXIV

I wore the casual day look for a Saturday of running errands. It was a tad chilly so I threw on a jacket, pulled my hair back and off I went with my fun mix of leopard and camo. Later that night, Jarrod and I had dinner reservations at our favorite downtown restaurant, Weber Grill, so I paired my comfy overalls with a dressy white blouse, a crystal statement necklace and leopard print pumps - hence, look two. I got so many compliments at dinner - and was totally loving my fashion-forward look even if I was a little uncomfortable at first. So, if there's a trend you think you can't pull off, I say go for it and give it a try!

  2. I'm remember these the first time round. I;ve only ever seen them though dressed down for daytime. They look amazing for night time! I love the leopard heels!
