Raise your hand if you spent the majority of the 90’s running around in overalls and jumper dress. I was very much so a girly girl and skirted overalls and skort jumpers were my go two weekend wear as a child. Anything that wasn’t pants but still let me jump in mud was a huge win in my books.
Well guess what ladies, if you were anything like me than you are definitely in luck because the overall dress is making a major style comeback this summer and I’m here to tell you that it’s the best summer trend of the year!
I picked up this white denim overall dress from Zara a few weeks ago for my trip to Los Angeles. Even though I didn’t get a chance to wear it out during my vacation, it’s it’s quickly become a weekend staple of mine this summer. Since the warm weather seems to be keeping at bay this year (I mean seriously Chicago get it together, it’s June!) I’ve been pairing this overall dress with a long sleeve chambray shirt; a little twist on the traditional Canadian tuxedo.
This past Saturday I visited the Green City Farmers Market (a must do if you are visiting the city) and dressed down the overall dress by pairing it up with some white jeweled sneakers (i’m obsessed with these, they are leather so they are much easier to keep bright white than traditional white sneakers) and a monogrammed tote to bring back my farmer’s market haul.
Later that evening I met up with my friends Christine and Peggy for a movie night (we saw Ocean’s 8 and I highly recommend it!) and tapas and dressed up the same outfit with a bright pop of color in the form of my favorite mini mac crossbody handbag in poppy and my go to summer wedges. I live in these Tory Burch wedges during the warmer months of the year and I’m super bummed that they didn’t come back this season, but I did find a cute alternative at a much better price point.
So I’d love to know, are you excited about this 90’s wardrobe staple making a comeback? Are you willing to bring back the 90’s with this overall dress?
