Wait, so why are overalls a thing again? No one really knows the answer except maybe because 90’s grunge is back with a vengeance. At least these overalls are an updated version of the relics from a distant past. They have a slimmer fit and I think the shorts version are cuter. I’m just hoping they don’t look too “Mom Jeans” on me. You know, like the SNL skit written by Tina Fay? I can’t stand jeans that are baggy on your behind either, i.e., boyfriend jeans. I tried it with three different pairs of jeans but took them all back because I  just can’t do it. Every time I put them on and turned around to see how my booty looked in them I got sad. Bums shouldn’t look like that in jeans, okay? At least not mine.

I sort of went with the grunge look by adding opaque black tights and boots and then adding this plaid button up. Plaid is a staple for fall and winter and I’m so glad it has stuck around another year because I can wear this shirt again. I purchased it from the wonderful and all-encompassing Target last year and only wore it once. I like how the lines that form the checks are thinner and closer together, so it doesn’t look like your average, every day plaid. Plus its a slimmer fit which makes it excellent for layering, and the sequined collar adds that girly touch I can’t resist.

I felt like covering myself in turquoise accessories instead of my usual all gold or rose gold for some reason. I like how it popped against the red shirt and matched the turquoise frames on my Clubmasters.
