My Style: Keeping My Cool in Overalls

Sharing is caring!

Okay. Overalls… Bear with me. I giggle as I write this, because this was such a kick out of the box for me… Do you remember when I did this post about finding plus size overalls? Well, I had the pleasure of testing out a pair from Addition Elle and let me tell you… this was a playful feat. So when the weather reached over 100 in SoCal (the IE specifically) I knew I had to pull these babies out and make this work.

So, I received these short overalls that I included in that roundup, and while I had ideas in my head, it was hot and I needed to chill. My first inclination was to put on a bikini top and chill around the house, but yeahhh… NO. LOL. SO I did the next best thing and rocked out in this ASOS Crop top and my overalls.

Being that my hair was still straightened, I swooped this hair to the side, threw on my new UBER fave AVON lippie in Deep Orchid with my Urban Decay Eye Liner and popped on these Dollhouse wedges and this is what I came up with:

Rocking out in these overalls- OH MY they are comfy! They have this stretch with great memory (meaning I did not have saggy booty at the end of the day) and the sizing was quite true! I am a size 16 ish and these rocked perfect in the size.The Curvy Fashionista in Addition Elle Plus Size Overalls

In addition to the size, I did like the length. They did not cut me awkwardly and I appreciated that! If I wanted, I could roll them down for a frayed look or I could roll them higher if life ever called for that action. Hahaha…

Would I rock these again? Of course, throughout the summer, more casually I will. It definitely is an item that pushes me out of my comfort zone, but I can tell you, I HAD SO MUCH FUN DOING IT. I mean, when you push yourself out of your own way, rocking something before you say no, you learn so much about yourself and interestingly enough, these overalls did that.

Well… do not laugh, but here are a few thoughts:

I knew I liked my legs, but in these short overalls, I realized that I definitely do like them (so a reinforced action)

I felt silly, but felt okay feeling silly. I laughed and even took one shoulder off, taking it wayyyyy back to the Cross colors days. (do YOU remember that?)

I can get set in my ways or have gotten a bit more conservative about other parts of my body. All that SIDE crop top skin? It was both uncomfortable, BUT liberating! After seeing a picture of my side, I didn’t feel all that self-conscious about it… I do have my limits and while I will probably not show that much, it was a part of me that I have embraced.

The image of being or dressing too “young” I need to get over. For some reason, I am going through this “I am too old for that” thought and I have found myself shying away from playing around with things. I suppose I need to take my own medicine here: Don’t knock it till you rock it
