Not exactly the most flattering analogy, right?? But fashion and style are truly a little like that…we’ll see a new silhouette, or fabric treatment, or colour story on someone (or a few someones) and suddenly, we have to have it, too!!
Take this overall/romper combination from American Eagle Outfitters; both were trends that I wasn’t going to follow…and yet, here I am!!
The fact that this was essentially a two-for-the-price-of-one piece – which means I’m giving up less closet real estate for what might be a short-lived love affair! – and a steal at only $25…seriously, what did I have to lose?! Not to mention that it happened to be in my favourite shade of green!!
My soft suede Nine West heels were perfect for elevating the casual feel of the shortalls just a little; and I actually managed a few hours of shopping (including groceries!) while wearing them!! It’s like the training wheels are coming off!! 😀
If nothing else, this hybrid romper will make the perfect cover-up for beach season…but how do you think I did with today’s more street-appropriate look, dear readers?? Did the proverbial monkey steer me in the right direction??
