Over All


Farmers really had it together before any of us.  Once the domain of farmers and factory workers, overalls have made a fashionable comeback once again.  I've never seen overalls look sexier. Do you remember wearing them as a kid?  I loved watching the Walton's in theirs and my kids wore them too. They were so cool back then and I love that they are back!




Overall (cheesy pun intended) you have to be a little confident in a fashion sense to wear them. Skinny jeans are great, but sometimes you just want to breathe. I was elated to find vintage boyfriend overalls, torn and ripped and I paired them with a hippie fringe bag from 9th & Elm, handmade and independent designs for a cool boho vibe.  Which, btw, how cool is this bag? It's handmade and it's the only accessory you will need to make a statement with a simple outfit.

For a night out, I love the tapered overalls with a touch of leather for an edgy twist.

Check out how these lovely ladies make their overalls look chic and effortless.
