Distressed Dungarees

Overalls. Love them or hate them, they are making a comeback and I’m personally a huge fan. I vividly remember the Winnie The Pooh dungarees (a British-coined term) I lived in as a young tot and I say with total honesty that if someone recreated them for me I would rock that look like it was 1998. This is certainly a more “grown up” (whatever that means) manifestation, and I tried to keep it fresh and unique by pairing them with a polka dot button down that I adore from UNIQLO. I’ve noticed a lot of people have been pairing overalls with stripes, so if that is more your speed it’s also pretty easy to pull off. There is also the option of no shirt, which I have seen trending, but personally I think that’s a dangerously precarious option. Wikipedia (one of my favorite go-to sources) makes reference to “Shortalls” and “Skirtalls.” I’ve never heard an article of clothing referred to by those terms in my life, but it’s a pretty swell way of being more specific for other overall options. So what say you about the repeat trend- yea or nay?

This weekend I had the opportunity to attend my first event as a new member of the Junior League of Washington. They told us the attire was to be “summer casual” and I always stick with the thought process that it is better to be a bit over-dressed than to walk in and feel like an idiot because you are visibly too casual (unless that is your MO, then go ahead and rock that). So this is the look I came up with, and it fit in quite smashingly.

It’s been about a hundred years since I posted a blog post. I blame this on work and LSAT studying, vacations, etc. Basically things have been pretty crazy. However, I wanted to give this glance of my first trip to NYC! The city was amazing, and I definitely fell in love. This is almost sure to be my future home. Everyone knows that New York is known for high fashion, and with this last week of NYFW taking place, based on all of the amazing videos and photos I have seen, fashion packed a pretty strong punch. It was so exciting to see the lines that are being put off, some of my personal favorites include the jewel-encrusted designs by Tory Burch and the fun and crazy Steve Madden line partnered with The Blonde Salad (one of my personal favorite bloggers!) I will be going back in just a few weeks and will be sure to have lots more fun and beautiful fashion to share.
