During our first year of dating J went home to Alabama for a week spent at the lake. His buddy’s uncle was wearing overalls all week and swore by them. When J returned home he couldn’t stop looking at overalls online. I was so confused – was he joking or being serious? I seriously couldn’t tell until a package arrived and he did indeed order a pair of overalls for himself. I couldn’t help but laugh! He hardly wears them, pulling them out for a few “special” occasions like big Auburn games or road trips. It’s definitely more of a joke than anything, but he made sure that I too had my very own pair of overalls!
That Christmas J gifted me these. (I got other presents too, don’t worry! 😉 ) They stayed in the back of my closet for a good while but turns out overalls are pretty darn comfortable… and dare I say, stylish!? I’ve noticed quite a few popping up in Spring arrivals online like these cherry blossom printed ones and these floral embroidered pair – how cute?! I love the bows instead of buckles! There are so many styles, cuts, colors so there’s definitely a pair out there for everyone! I have a feeling I’ll pull my overalls out more often than I thought… I’m even considering these shorts or dress styles to add to the collection!
I am having a major love affair with high waisted denim right now. Major!
I have ordered quite a few to try, and J laughed at me every time I asked “what about these?” Jeans are one of those things that are SO hit or miss and can be such a huge heartbreak. I actually avoided denim shopping for months and months but then I found these jeans from Old Navy and loved the high waisted style so much that I was on a hunt for more. The jeans I’m wearing are J.Crew which scared me since I don’t always like their denim. I originally saw on another blogger and loved how they looked. I read some reviews, listened and ordered a size down, and although the fit is different looking on me than the blogger I found them off of, I was in the market for a more boyfriend, relaxed fit and I couldn’t pass up the button fly detail. I’ve worn them dressed up and super casual and I love the way both looks worked so easily yet taken a little further because of the style. The material is super soft so if you are looking for a structured jean these aren’t for you, but if you want a comfy jeans snatch them up! And, they come in white, so I’m debating those for a spring jean purchase but for now, happy Friday! Can’t wait to go home and be a blue jean baby this weekend in these.
C’s Note: After snapping these pictures we went to Espita Mezcaleria. They’re known for their Mezcal cocktails & I totally recommend going if you haven’t! The Chicilo Mole was incredible! Beef Short Rib, served over a mole of Avocado Leaf, Tomatillo, Guajillo, Beef Stock with Heirloom Corn Tortillas… hello! And if you go before 7pm they have great happy hour specials including half price their weekly featured Mezcal!
