Callout: Black denim overalls, lace-up sandals, and a baker boy cap

BloIt finally happened, dear readers…I heard and heeded the irresistible call of the overall!! 😁

This one-piece-wonder was part of the haul I recently brought home from our friendly neighbourhood Lucky Brand outlet store; and while black denim might not exactly be an expected sartorial choice for a smokin’ hot August afternoon, I wasn’t about to wait until our temperatures dropped to debut it!!

Can you honestly blame me?!  That combination of flattering fitted silhouette and funky stepped hemline has “wear me now!” written all over it…but maybe the very best summertime feature??  Unlike the average overall, this one is absolutely doable without the need for anything – not even a tank top or tee – underneath!!  Of course the option to layer is there once we Vancouverites do start feeling a chill in the air (although personally, I’m still far from ready to be thinking about autumn’s inevitable arrival)!!

What I am thinking about is how these new denim overalls of mine prove once again “where there’s a will, there’s a way” when it comes to making a fashion trend your own.  If you’ve been admiring a particular look but have given up believing it’s possible to make it work for you, I say try and try (and try!) again!!  I can’t remember how many different versions of overalls I’d considered before I struck gold with this pair; certainly more than enough to (almost) convince me that they maybe weren’t meant to be my thing.

So what’s the lesson to be learned today??  Determination pays off for fearless fashionistas!!  Keep up the callouts for those trends you love until you find the perfect fit…and when you do, I hope you’ll take a moment to share a little story of your success!!

    Monika, I just bought a pair very similar to these!! Mine are skinny all the way though. Over here, we call them dungarees which is such a fun name. I wonder where it came from?!
    You look gorgeous in yours. Mine, however, have to wait for the weather to get cooler. It’s still way too hot to wear anything like this here in the Algarve!

    I have never been a fan of overalls, but these are getting my attention. What a great cut they have and such interesting details. (I am so craving a pair of jeans for fall with those stepped hemlines). It’s far more flattering and not the least bit bumpkin-ish than what one expects overalls to be. In short, they are just so you! Not sure I could wear these in a NY summer though. I avoid most denim this time of year. I’d also worry that they wouldn’t cover my boobs. I’d have to wait until it was cool enough to wear denim and layer something under it before I could consider these.
