Overalls have been back for a couple of years now, and they are remaining in the fashion lime light. Have you gotten your pair yet? Well, I finally have. I have been on the search for a long time, in fact. Shopping for the perfect pair of overalls is like shopping for a bathing suit. It's hard! 

It's hard for three main reasons:

  1. Pant length
  2. Perfect butt 
  3. Torso

I have long legs, a long torso and hardly any butt, but these Target flared overalls with a flat front are SO flattering and fun. They are only $29.99, and a great way to try a trend without investing too much. 

When trying on other overalls the torso was often too short causing major camel toe (eeewww) or the butt was too baggy. Not these overalls! 

The wide leg is also a style that long legs can pull off really well. The only problem is figuring out what shoes to wear with them. Skinny jeans give you a pass for the most part on what shoe works. I'm 5'8" so a comfy 1" platform does the trick.

The silk scarf has made a bit of a comeback in the last few seasons. We've rediscovered the fashion utility of bandanas, chokers, and essentially anything else wrapped around our necks, and the silk scarf is the polished, cool girl equivalent. While creating a turtleneck effect is the go-to for most fashion girls, some don't stop there. The silk scarf has opened up a world of accessory versatility, being knotted around wrists, through belt loops, and my personal favorite, around ankles.

I love the timelessness, class, and French inspiration brought about by the neck scarf. It instantly pulls together any outfit, and makes a sleek yet creative accessory. And who doesn't want to look like an artist off duty?

Another way to incorporate this creative accessory is by tying a uniquely-patterned scarf around the wrist. If your outfit is feeling bare, this is a great way to mix things up by still avoiding the clunkiness of a bracelet.

The same outfit formula can get old after awhile, so try breaking it up by substituting your belt with a printed scarf. It adds a bohemian vibe to a very put together look, and makes your look instantly more laid back.

Ah, the ankle scarf. Plain old pants get old sometimes, and silk scarves add all sorts of flair to your bottom half. If you're looking for a way to draw attention to your fantastic shoes, tie a scarf around your ankle to draw the eye down your entire outfit and create visual balance.



I've traded in my skinnies for some flared jeans, and I forgot how good they feel. Do you remember wearing flared pants or even wide leg jeans? I know! It feels like a distant memory, but they are back in a big way and I finally bought myself a pair of Who What Wear jeans from Target

I love them because they make my legs look even long and my waist ity-bity. Oh yeah, did I mentioned they are high waist jeans that suck everything in too? Oh yeah, baby! This mama is one happy girl right now because, as I shared in a past post, my body isn't quite back to itself even though Levi turns 1 years old this coming week. AHH!

If you have long legs and a long torso, the key to wearing these jeans is to define your waist by tucking in your shirt. I don't like everything super structured, so I added my kimono (also from Target). A contrasting denim jacket would work well or simply a tank and t-shirt is always great. 

Length is always an issue when you wear flare pants. I'm going to hem these jeans because I love wearing lower heels. For now, it works with these suede wedges.  So, are you ready to get your pair of flare (see what I did there)? If you're a bit hesitant you can find them at Target on sale for $34.99. That's such a low price for a fashion experiment! Let me know if you try!

This post is for all of you ladies that never know what to wear and who stare at their closet and stress out. When I want to feel pretty and feminine but I don't have any energy to think about putting an outfit together I reach for a pleated maxi skirt and a t-shirt. That's it. End of story. You will look great and in style with that outfit. 

You can chase after your kids in this outfit, especially if you wear flats. If you didn't do your hair that day you can throw on a hat or put it up in a bun. And, you don't even need to accessorize with jewelry if you don't want to. With the minimalist trend in full force you don't even need to wear jewelry right now. Plus, this is definitely and outfit that can transition to a date night with your beaux.

Usually, I'm sporting a diaper bag these days, so I LOVE, love the new Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper clutches. It has a wipes case, changing pad and plenty of room for a onesie, some makeup, my keys and wallet. Even when I don't have Levi I take this clutch with me because it's so cute. But, seriously, any bag would do with this outfit.

If you like color in your closet I suggest this Goldie's wine color maxi skirt. It's only $39 and made in the U.S. If you are color shy, you can always opt for a black skirt and pair it with a white, black or gray t-shirt and look great too.

Top Button

You don't want to forget that top button on your oxford these days. "But I'll look like a total nerd," you say. YEP! That's the point. Looking like you're part of the geek squad is fashion forward. Whether it's a shirt dress or a typical oxford, that top button is an easy indicator as to whether you're more fashion forward than you're co-worker. DISCLAIMER - If you have a larger bust line you may want to stay away from this trend all together.
