How to style overalls

Overalls are something I haven’t really considered adding to my wardrobe. Along with jumpsuits, it takes me forever to find the right one [since one piece items are not the most versatile]. When I came across these black denim overalls, I was a little skeptical thinking I might look ridiculous. Once I put them on they were so comfortable.

Some things to consider if you’re buying overalls:

— Do you want a lighter / medium denim? Great, go get ’em.

— If you’re worried about standard denim looking to casual, opt for a dark denim like gray or black.

— Worried about fit? There are all kinds of styles from skinny, boot cut, cropped, flared, shorts and loose boyfriend fit. No matter your body type, I’m sure you’ll be able to set your heart on one!

I styled my overalls with pumps, a military inspired cardigan, striped top and chic top knot. The pumps add an instant dressed up feel and the cardigan adds some contrast vs. wearing the overalls alone [which I’m probably going to ease into the more I wear them].

Fall sweater trends

Now that sweater weather is afoot, I’m sharing some of my favorite sweater styles from one of my favorite retailers SheIn

  • The off the shoulder trend that was a major hit this year is continuing into the chilly weather which I love.
  • It’s hard to wear sweaters sometimes and not feel frumpy, so lace detail can add a feminine touch to your cozy look.
  • When the weather isn’t chilly enough for a thick jacket, but you need something to keep you warm, a sweater jacket is the perfect wardrobe staple.

Chic athleisure

The track pant trend is a big one for fall, as well as the cut out shoulder look. I combined the two for an athletic and chic style. Pumps give a more polished feel, but you can easily style this with sneakers or sandals. The transition from summer to fall is my favorite time of the year and this look is the epitome of what I love to wear because of the marvelous weather. How do you transition into fall?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

It’s here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is up and running and you can snag some great fall items at a discounted price.

Even though my budget right now isn’t allowing for me to shop, I hope some of you will be able to put some of these beauties in your closet!

1) You know that sweater you live in every fall? This is it. You can style it with leggings, denim, pants, a skirt, and use it as a great layering piece with a shirt because the neckline is so wide.

2) A good pair of suede pumps are key for fall. I love these specifically because the heel height isn’t too high. I don’t know about you guys, but 3″ is all I can handle nowadays 😉 My favorite color are the olive because it’s such a versatile color. The stud detail on the back of the shoes is also a nice touch.

3) I have yet to pull the trigger on a pair of boyfriend jeans, but this fall might be the year I get a pair! The raw cuffed edge of these Rag & Bone jeans [and the color] are what sold me on keeping my eye on them for a future purchase!

4) Vests, vests, vests. I cannot get enough of them. This season I would love to add one to my collection that acts more like a coat. You can layer suede and leather jackets under it and big chunky sweaters. You can even wear it as a dress if your heart desires!

5) Speaking of jackets, this faux leather one speaks for itself [that price tho – can’t beat it]

6) Last but not least, the bootie. This is the second style of shoe I have most in my closet because they can go through all seasons, are comfortable, and all around perfect.
