Bell-Bottom Overalls and Gingham Blouses
Tie the Ribbon from Your “Wrap Blouse” Around Your Overalls!
Happy Monday everyone! Chapman has two more weeks until spring break, and I could not be more excited! I want to give you a little recap of my weekend before I talk about this look because it was probably one of the best and more busy weekends I have had in a while. Friday, we threw a little surprise birthday breakfast for Lex, one of my roomies, and made her pink pancakes and got her some yummy donuts! At night, I went to Disney with my cousin and it literally started down-pouring on us after we rode one ride HAHA, but I have to say that Disney looks incredibly beautiful in the rain. On Saturday, I went to my sister’s stuttering convention that she hosts every year at Chapman called Friends West. If you know someone who stutters, let me know so I can give them info on the upcoming 3 day convention – it truly is one of the most inspiring events you will ever attend. At night, I went to GPHI date party with my good friend Dana and we dressed up as Beyonce and Nicki – the ultimate dynamic duo. Sunday was my fave part of the weekend because the FOG exec (the fashion club on campus) got to go up to Palm Springs to do a shoot for the vintage denim jacket company, TARA IN THE NIGHT! We are working on a look book for the company as our first exec project. Follow the FOG insta @thefog.cu to get more updates on when meetings are and to read weekly blogger spotlights. Now, let’s talk about this “overalls” look!
Who wants to bring bell-bottoms back?! Well, I think that wearing them in “overalls” form is the perfect idea! I recently purchased these bell-bottom overalls at TJ-Maxx for only 13$! Honestly, if you can find overalls for less than 30$, I am requiring you to purchase them to add to your closet repertoire hahah. I did this shoot in Pioneertown a little while back, so I thought that throwing in some gingham prints to go with the “western” aesthetic would be fun! I got this wrap top from Forever 21 and when I was playing around with this look, I decided that tying the bow on top of the body of the overalls would add an eccentric feel to the outfit. Shoes wise, I had to pull out the black suede platforms [Forever 21] because the bell-bottom + platform combo helps to lengthen your legs – well, at least it does in my opinion hahah.
I hope you enjoyed reading about this western bell-bottoms look! If you are on spring break, happy vacation! If yours is coming up, happy almost break!
