overalls part 2.

Well I did jump on the bandwagon earlier this year and purchase a pair of overalls.  And I would like to admit that I love them.  Yep, there I said it.  Hmmmmm, now my eyes have narrowed in on this faux leather version.  It remains to be seen if I will also take the plunge on these.  But while I'm at it, I also added in a few accessories that would be perfect additions to this outfit.

festival fashion.

I find so much fashion inspiration just walking around and checking out other girl's "street style".  One of my ultimate fave spots to find stylish outfits is at festivals.  I swear, everyone kicks it up a notch as they go and watch their favorite bands on a sunny summer afternoon.  Here are some looks that I'm loving at the moment.

fashion inspiration.

Some weeks I just keep reaching for the same thing in my closet day after day (yep, I'm talking about you white maxi dress).  So yesterday I started scouring the web for some new fashion inspiration and these gems caught my eye.  Jean on jean, aka the canadian tuxedo...thoughts?  Well I wore a similar version of this last night and actually kind of liked it.  And an all black ensemble during the summer?  If you pair some chic black shorts with a loose top, I'm all about it.

fashion rules.

I couldn't agree more with this quote.  I like to experiment with fashion.  Why not?  I once worked in a showroom for an amazing furniture manufacturer.  It was a modern furniture company and they were fine with us dressing a little more fashion forward.  One day I wore a super ruffly dress in a bright color (with a blazer) and one of my fave clients came in.  He said to me "wow, that's quite the dress.  It kind of looks like something my daughter would wear to school...on wacky wednesday...she's in kindergarten".  I laughed out loud.  While my co-workers seemed to look on in horror, I was smiling from ear to ear.  I liked the fact that I was dressing a bit crazy, dressing just the way I wanted.  So I completely agree, "forget the rules, if you like it, wear it"!



seeing double.

I have a confession to make, I have purchased two of the very same item of clothing.  Ekkkkk!  It's a very rare occurrence, but I have found a few dresses that I fell in love with and decided I needed the exact same one in a different color.  I already own this lovely in blush, but I'm kind of thinking I might need to invest in tea or mint too.  And I know that they call this a "slip dress", but it's definitely more of a tunic on me.  I love love love it!
