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!!
