Spring Trends: Overall Dresses & Mules

Two trend trains I have hopped on board with this spring are overall dresses and mules (slides). I saw this white denim overall dress at Forever21 and had to scoop it up, I like that it’s a play on last season’s overall shorts, and I love the copper buttons down the middle. I also picked up this olive green (one of my favorite colors to wear) bodysuit! It is the first body suit that I have ever purchased, and I like that it has long sleeves, and it’s very functional for pairing with any sort of overalls so that your shirt doesn’t ride up! I completed this look with a shoe you will see me wearing all spring (and another trend alert): mules! I love the pearl detailing on these ones, and they are so comfortable and easy to wear. So happy that spring is finally here and I can wear these fun spring pieces!

How do you feel about overall dresses and mules?

Grown-up Overalls

Overalls. Dungarees. Most of us wore them as kids. I know that I used to love wearing them to play in ball pit birthday parties! I hadn’t worn them in about 15 years though, and it felt great to be back in them. This pair is a “grown up” pair- short shorts with distressed denim (more for fashion than function). I paired my overalls with a black tank, and a favorite pair of beaded espadrille flats I bought at the end of last summer. The colorful beading and zebra print are so fun! I also paired this look with a favorite pair of retro round tortoise-shell sunglasses, and a new simple choker (trend alert!) that I bought from a street vendor. I love the gold dangly from the middle of the choker, it adds an unexpected detail. Even though it’s September, it has still been pretty warm and humid in NYC. I have been feeling very “downtown” and edgy lately!
