Overall Shorts Goals

I tend to fixate on things, like ice cream, travel destinations, this blog, and lately, overall denim shorts. Sitting on the sidelines I’ve been watching a parade of cuties sashay by in their usually loose-fitting versions, so I figured my foray into the world of the bibbed beauties would take a slightly different turn. Enter these stretch denim puppies which I snapped up at H&M and then paired with a Nasty Gal top and gold Superga sneaks. The fit is pretty tight, which is just about how I feel when I wear them. Needless to say the humble denim overall has come a long way from its utilitarian beginnings to its current status as a cool girl staple. Yes, I’ve got a whole lotta respect for a garment that can go from the fields of the Midwest to the streets of the Meatpacking District without missing a beat. Ok, maybe I wouldn’t wear these exact ones to till the fields, but you get the picture. Do you have yours yet?

Tulle Dress Tulle Skirt

I love a tulle skirt as much as the next (formerly or currently) Carrie Bradshaw-obsessed girl. But I don’t own one. What I do own is this amazing black and nude tulle dress by Lanvin for H&M. So I did what any self-respecting fashion-savvy girl would do and I DIY’d my way into the fluffy, flouncy skirt of my latent Sex and the City dreams. Admittedly, there was a lot of fabric to squeeze under this tiny top but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a belt can answer almost any fashion question. I paired the look, both ways, with my current fav vegan leather strappy sandals and voila! I’m ready to be splashed by dirty water unleashed by a passing city bus! Or, even better, sashay my way across a room (preferably one where there are passed hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and chic guests) with confidence and swagger. Do you own a tulle skirt? Share your pics with me! I’d love to see.

With love, Amanda
