^this little guy enjoying + experiencing everything for the first time is so magical. It makes every little thing a big grand adventure.

It’s official, I’ve hopped on the overall train + I am never turning back! Initially when these little overalls arrived I had my doubts. I put them on + immediately felt like my elementary school self again, so they just hung in my closet for the last week + each time I’d go in there, stare at them + walk out again completely befuddled by how/when to wear them. Until today. Today it was the perfect spring Sunday with nothing planned but a lazy little funday with the fam. I pulled them out, tossed them on over a cream fitted henley T, threw on a sun hat + a favorite pair of smoking flats + off we went. And guys, they could not have been more perfect! We went from brunch to strolling the local shops, to playground + ice-cream + these were best denim decision I’d made in a long time. I cannot tell you how many people stopped me + told me they loved my overalls! My little fashion loving heart was so happy to hear this.

I feel like it took me so long to get on board because I needed the perfect pair, this pair, to come around. These are super fitted all the way to the top of the waist, giving them an updated, grown up + sexier vibe than those elementary school ones. They also have an on-trend raw edge + hit at the ankle so no hemming needed (yay! short girl problems). They run TTS (I am wearing XS + typically a 25 in most bottoms) + have a nice stretch to them while not losing their shape. They feel great on. No problems going on the slide with my little guy or strolling through town 😉 I paired them with a simple tee for a nice family day of fun but in my mind’s eye I can see these being worn with a flirty off the shoulder top + some espadrilles for a fun filled girls night or even day date with the hubs. 😉 I did manage to score mine on sale from shopbop during their recent promo so I also linked some other budget friendly versions I love as well.

So maybe my mom was onto something all those years ago when she stuck me into some overalls + let me run wild as a kid. Wishing you all a happy Monday. Xo, Jules.
