Blogger Collaboration: Not Over Overalls


(Left to Right)

I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally share this post with you all.  Thanks to #ChicChat, a fashion chat group on Twitter, I have joined forces with these very talented bloggers to bring you a great outfit to inspire you.  Not only is this my first ever collaboration, but it is also the first time I have used myself as the model. I have wanted to do this for a while now, but I have never been 100% sure I was ready.  This week I stepped out my comfort zone and tried something new for you and I couldn’t be happier with the results!  But enough about that and back to the task at hand, this fabulous post.  It all happened one night during #ChicChat last month.  These lovely ladies and myself started a conversation about fashion trends that you either love or hate.  We decided then and there to collaborate on a story by taking a trend, in this case overalls, that we were on the fence about, and create our own outfit to show of how we’d wear it.  Will it turn us into believers or will we never speak of it again?   When I think of overalls, an image of me from when I was eight years old pops into my head.  I used to wear them all the time with a tee shirt and my hair in braided pigtails.  However, now that I am an adult, I am not sure that they fit my current style.   Could I find a way to style overalls and still look like a grown up?  The hardest part was finding the perfect pair, but once I did, the rest fell into place.   The key to styling overalls is to make sure the fit is flattering, you pair it with a feminine top like lace or stripes, and accessorize it with a structured bag and sleek gold jewelry.  It has been a fun collaboration, and it’s great to see how each of us chose to create a chic outfit. Take a look at how each one of us styled our overalls and find the perfect way that you can wear this trend.

The verdict is in.  Overalls are playful, comfortable, and a trend I could see myself wearing in the future.  I had a blast collaborating with these ladies and hope you enjoyed it too!   Head over to their blogs to see how they took on this challenge:  Stephanie at A Sparkle Factor | Rachel at The Rachel Ross | Diane at Style Context
