Yes, what I happen to like personally is also super trendy right now. I also think it is important to revisit your personal style roots from time to time. Overalls remind me WAY too much of high school — I used to wear my hot pink pager clipped into the front pocket of my overalls, with a smart little crop top. This time around, I just did not think this trend was for me.

But I found myself thinking about overalls more than I care to admit. And I thought, okay, if not full-on overalls, maybe short overalls will work? To avoid a major cash investment, I bought a cute retro pair on Poshmark for less that $20, new with tags. My favorite parts are the snaps and the little patch pockets.

Post-purchase, these short overalls sat in my closet for 2 months. Totally unheard of, if you know me. For the life of me, I could not figure out how to wear them and NOT look juvenile.

Then, right before I fell asleep the other night, I had a fashion epiphany:

“Go Edgy”

The result is some kind of edgy-grunge-with-a-dash-of-boho look that I could not be more obsessed with. It’s kind of weird, and I dig it.
