Styling Shortalls

Bringing back the overalls mom style! I would normally call these denim overall shorts but they have a new name shortalls. Maybe that’s just what we are calling the adult version not to confuse them with the ones we all wore as children. The same problems still arise wearing them however, like trying not to get the long shoulder buckle from falling in the toilet while unhooking to use the bathroom. Having the buckle either not stay hooked or the total opposite and can’t get it to unhook when you do need to take them off. They are great for not showing off your butt crack when bending over but also you are likely to stand up from the bend over with a major wedge.

Don’t let any of these things discourage you from rocking some overalls as an adult.

Here are some ways I’ve worn them

This one is called the tomboy, it’s a great way to reminisce your childhood years of looking cute while playing baseball with the neighborhood boys. 🙂

The next look is the farmer mom. I feel like I should be picking strawberries with the kiddos while rocking this look… of course that requires a lot of bending over so use the kids as cover while picking all those wedges.

This is the layered look, I would wear this look when I know I’m going to be hanging out in the air conditioning most of the day but ready for the summer heat with the sleeveless tee underneath.

I wanted to come up with a more dressy way to wear overalls but I couldn’t they are overalls for crying out loud! When they aren’t on trend the only people that continue to wear them are hillbillies, farmers and children so with that it’s obvious they aren’t meant to be worn during a more classy situation. Hey! But if you can come up with a fancy way to rock some shortalls let me know in the comments! I’m all for giving it a go!

Styling Olive Pants

I’ll be the first to admit I’m bad at mix and matching my clothes. I buy a certain top to go with a certain pair of pants, skirt, or shorts. You know what happens to a blogger who always needs something new to post when I don’t mix and match? Let’s just say the bank account takes a pretty big hit.

So I’m going to change that and force myself to mix and match, my bank account and husband will be thankful. 😉

I recently bought these cute olive colored pants and of course the first thing I think to pair them with is a stripe shirt because well it’s me! I actually bought both this tee and pants in the same order. This tee is super cute and lightweight without being see through. One thing I do recommend with a lower v-neck you should wear a bralette underneath. That way when your baby pulls at your shirt or you are bending over to pick up a kid, toy, laundry (you get the idea) you aren’t showing off the ladies. Instead you are showing off a fashionable barlette. I recommend one like this.

The next look I added a camo shirt but didn’t want it to be too edgy or matchy matchy with all the green so I broke it up with a feminine pink cardigan.

Another way, and probably my favorite and will be the most worn way, was pairing it with a plain graphic tee and this bright red tennis shoes! I love the way it all looks together.

Adding a classic button up Gingham top makes you look a little more done up even when you are rocking the converse too!

Last but not least, dressing up the pants with a little leopard print heel would be perfect for a date night! If only I got a date night every once in a while! 🙁

Well there you have it! A few looks I was able to put together with olive pants!

I hope you like the post and find inspiration. I know it gives me inspiration and ideas when I put together a blog post like this one, so I will continue to make more mix and match posts!
