What I wore today: 02/26/2013 (Rainy Day)

Rainy Day outfit: Holding Horse overalls from Anthropologie, heather gray t-shirt, hunter green rain boots

Recently, I asked Ryan, "What would you think if I started wearing overalls?" I'm glad he was game because I'd already set my heart on this pair that we'd just gotten in at work (not that objections from him would have stopped me).

This pair is special. I love their soft denim, drawstring waist, and eyelet-inlay detailing.

It's cold and rainy right now, so I have to pair them with boots, but, as soon as we get a sunny spring day, I'm going to wear them rolled up to my ankles with no shirt underneath.

I know that overalls are not everyone's cup of tea, and that's part of what I love about them. Neon, flatforms, high-low hems (or mullet skirts as people who dislike them are fond of calling them), and other controversial items tend to get my attention, and then, after a while, my love.

What can I say? Anything that's different is going to have a certain amount of appeal. That's the evolution of fashion. Trends swing one way and then another, and the most exciting things are the ones that push the envelope. 

So, how do you feel about overalls?

  2. Overalls have been a staple item throughout my life. There is a kind of strange yet appealing pattern in the book "Sweatshop Paris". Your pair is a bit of a different take and thought provoking for me as I have been such a traditionalist with mine.

  3. Hey, really random question but do you by chance know if there's anywhere to find another pair of these? I've searched everywhere and even on ebay, I can't find a pair in my size.
