Nineties Nostalgia Chic

July 16, 2013

 Wearing: Thrifted Calvin Klein Overalls (save/spend) | Ann Taylor tee | neon bag c/o Olivia + Joy (similar) | Thrifted yellow pumps (save/spend) | H&M gold cuff bracelet | Stella & Dot renegade cluster bracelet | J.Crew leopard bangle (similar)

You guys. I thrifted these overalls for five dollars the other day and I almost died with excitement.  They are probably from someone's closet and had sat there for ten or fifteen years then they decided they didn't need these silly overalls from 1993, but boy were they wrong!  I absolutely love that the fit is a little baggy.  

I styled them with a simple white t-shirt in this outfit so that I could let the overalls and vibrant accessories take the stage.  I love taking a more tomboy-ish look into girly territory with a pair of bright heels and a giant pink brooch flower.  What do you think?  Would you ever try to style overalls?  If so, how?  I'm still racking my brain trying to figure out what I want to pair with them next!  Thank you so much for reading!

  8. We prefer jumpsuits to overalls, because nineties weren't good for fashion, like eighties ;)
