trying the trend: overalls

Well, I finally bit the trend bullet just as I imagine the trend is leaving the trend station and found some reasonably priced overalls during a recent 40% off sale but I'm not sure I'm totally sold. I like them more than I thought I would but they are definitely not something I reach for every day. Maybe I need to look into overall shorts? Or it seems like a lot of the cool kids have wandered over into flare-alls territory (which, admittedly, I did try these but they were way too short and not in a cute cropped flare way, at all) so maybe I should follow suit. Or maybe I can just let my curiosity curl up and die. I think that would be fine too. 

The first thing Sebastian said when he saw me dressed in my overalls was, "oh, why are you dressed like a Minion?" and then Theo walked in and asked why I was wearing one of Bosco's outfits so it's safe to say that my kids are big BIG fans. 

Anyway, I'm glad I tried because that's the whole point of the series. I'm thinking I might be daring and go the denim skirt route next (why why WHY did I get rid of my college collection?) or maybe go extra wild with boots and a dress? Time well tell. It always does

And now I'm off to muck some stalls and then return my outfit to its rightful Minion. 

adios.

  5. I'm regretting getting rid of my long duster sweater from high school! How are we old enough to have trends from high school coming back? As an aside I'm banking on the grunge look coming back when my girls hit middle school so they will want to be properly covered at all times and we won't have to fight over appropriate attire.

  9. I laughed out loud at the minion reference! I had a similar experience while wearing overalls like the flare ones you linked to. I saw Shana on The Mom Edit rocking the flare overalls, I thought I really needed to try them. I found a pair online at the Gap. I wore them while we were traveling to on a family vacation. I got a lot of attention while wearing them, more than I am used to and more than I am comfortable with. The attention was to either extreme of 1.) you are rocking those things ( literally, had a clerk at the gas station yell that to me as I was walking out of the store) or 2. the other extreme of weird looks and comments that didnt exactly scream approval. So, I dont know what to do with them. I liked them, but I dont want that much attention, good or bad. I think that this winter I might be a cardigan over them, and then my rear wont show as much and maybe I can then rock them in secret internally, but not as much to the world :) BTW, Grace I think you are rocking your overalls and should keep them. Sometimes, the littles are not the best fashion critics. Thanks!

  11. Hahaha - love Theo's response. And I'll bet he was just so serious about it, making it all so perplexing on both sides. Goodness that 'speak your mind' trait of kids is a little heartbreaking sometimes.

  12. That hair length is perfect for you! I'm too short for overalls. Do you use Like to Know It for your shopping posts?
