Def: styling a band tee, cropped linen overalls, denim jacket, and studded platform heels

I’m wearing a couple of pieces today that I’d been coveting for absolute ages, dear readers; any guesses what they might be??

If you’re aware that Def Leppard is my all-time favourite 80’s band, then telling you my Lucky Brand graphic tee is one of them certainly won’t be any great surprise!!  My challenge with t-shirts – with any top, really – is that I’m ridiculously fussy about everything from the fabric to the neckline to the length of the sleeves.  I can always find a new pair of denims to love (spoiler alert, there’ll yet again be some jeans debuting on the blog in the very near future!) but tops are a completely different story.  I could never settle on merely any old Def Leppard tee; it had to be the “perfect” one.  And woohoo…I finally found it!!

The second piece??  These super-cute cropped overalls…which I found just last Friday at Forever 21.  My regular visitors will know by now what a huge fan I am of this fast-fashion retailer – and no, they haven’t paid me to say that.  Sure, there’s a whole lot of teenybopper stuff to wade through; but if you have a bit of patience, facing down those overstuffed racks can often reward you with some real treasures.

A linen-blend iteration like this might be considered a “modified” take on the overall trend…but it’s going to be so ideal when summer officially arrives and the weather (hopefully!) really heats up.  For this end-of-May afternoon I layered my beloved, pearl-embellished denim jacket overtop to counteract the slight chill that’s still in air…especially when you’re cruising around in a convertible!! 😉

And obviously I had to include a pair of edgy heels to compliment the vibe of my rock band tee, am I right?!  These Vince Camuto beauties have seen a number of spring/summer seasons already…and I sincerely doubt this will be their last!!

And as always … whenever I read your posts and see your looks … I just wanna go shopping with you!!! 80’s rock?! You know you’re singing my tune, right? And I totally agree about F21 … lots of hidden treasures for a deal if you’re willing to look.
