I have to admit that overalls can be a tricky thing.  They either make you look uber cool or like an overgrown toddler.   True Story…  I wore these same overalls today on an 11 hour flight to Italy and was asked by the woman next to me if I was in college.   Now part of me.. nope scratch that.. most of me was like yassssss.. I mean who doesn’t want to be mistaken for college student when they’ve been well out of college for longer than they care to say?  But the other small part was thinking that the last time I wore these (which happens to be this photoshoot) people were stopping to compliment my look..

Okay  I’m rambling..
I say all of this to say that it’s “all in the way you wear it”..  On the plane I wore a sweatshirt (not a “chic” one might I add) and sneakers..  The day of this shoot the body suit and chic flats won..

Where the overalls, sweatshirt and sneakers made me look like I was headed to the library to study for finals… The overalls, bodysuit and flats (here) propelled me into adulthood and made me look like I was meeting a cool friend for a casual lunch in the city..

The moral of the story…A quick switch can change it all…

Adult in Overalls..

    Definitely I was in a similar scenario lots of times when I had to work and wear clothes less "chic". People talk to you differently when they think you are younger. I like how you styled this overall. Shoes, bag, scarf and top, everything is so chic!! You look really stunning!
