OOTD + 1 Item/3 Looks; Denim Overalls

The last time I had owned overalls was a while back when I was in my late teens, so when I purchased some denim ones from TEMT, it took me a few weeks before I actually ventured out in them.

A couple of days ago I wore them out to catch up with a friend/walk my dogs by pairing them with sneakers and a cat tee. Really simple, easy, and fun; just as they should be.

Grilled Bird Sandwich @ Once Upon A Time

My friend and I spent hours at my local cafe, munching away on sandwiches, fries, and scones, while sipping Apple Ice Tea (something new!) and green tea. I also tried my hand at an adult colouring in book which seems to be a trending activity at the moment. It is meant to help in relieving stress and keep us calm and zen. Quite enjoyable despite taking a couple of hours to finish one drawing.

This cafe is only new, maybe a month or two old. I stumbled upon it by chance around my neighbourhood, and found out it had only opened the previous week! Since then, I have been back at least once a week, whether it be for takeaway coffee or a sit-down brunch on a lazy weekend. Not only are the ingredients fresh, they have quite a few super foods on the menu; from chia seed pudding to quinoa rye toast. I found their Super Green Omelette to be extremely salty, but apart from that... not a lot of negative feedback - especially when their Kiwi Apple and Blueberry Smoothies are mouthwateringly good!

After wearing the overalls out once, I was pretty sure I would be getting a lot of use out of them this Spring/Summer so decided to come up with a few different ways to style them.

ZARA ivory sheer top knit / ZARA black suede zigzag heels / OROTON red clutch

LOOK 1; Dressy Casual
I suppose overalls, especially denim, are primarily a casual piece. However, with the help of a few accessories, I wanted to create a way to wear them out on a fun night while still maintaining the playful edge. Red is bold. Red is sexy. So how else to dress the look up with this vampy colour and sheer shoulders.

KOOKAI violet crop tee / Sportsgirl b&w stripe jacket / HILFIGER watch / ZARA gold sandals / House of Harlow necklace / OROTON blush clutch crossbody bag

LOOK 2; Fun Date
Of course a crop top has to come into play when overalls are involved. I'm one for colour most of the time, so these pops of girly pinks/purples would be great for a date and warmer weather.

Sportsgirl baseball tee / Converse white chucks / HILFIGER watch / sass & bide black leather stud backpack / DKNY Golden Delicious fragrance

LOOK 3; Red, White, & Blue
The age old red, white and blue combo. Can it ever do any wrong. Such classic colours and combination, that it's just effortless now. Added my backpack and chucks to enhance the youthful fun vibe. I realised all my fragrances are extremely feminine and girly, but I managed to find one which fits this outfit to a tee. Wafts of subtle fruitiness from the perfume will up the freshness and vibrancy making it perfect for Summer.

  25. Overalls are so cute - I always have trouble finding ones that fit my torso or legs right though. I'd love to get a pair of full length, overall pants!

    My favorite outfit is probably Dressy Casual, though I love the sandals you paired in Fun Date. I would have loved to see pictures of them on! (:
