Overall obsession

Denim overalls - casual - Samosa POP

Happy Thursday! I have been completely off the grid busy with some much needed family time for the past couple weeks. My parents are visiting all the way from India. (Yay!!) But, I have missed you and I have missed blogging. It’s a beautiful day in the Chicagoland area and today I am talking about a farmer favorite. Overalls may have kicked off in a big way during the spring, but the throwback style is carrying over for the colder months. I am so happy it is here to stay for fall, only now the one-piece styles are longer and ready to be layered with our favorite jackets and knits. Overall, I am obsessed.Denim overalls - casual - closeup - Samosa POP

Overalls are inherently comfortable, so I embraced the causal feel. When dressing them down, the main goal is to keep them from looking disheveled.

These leopard print wedges are a comfortable choice and align with the daytime feel.

Hot Pink

While you may find yourself already falling hard for some of fall’s hottest trends, I wouldn’t count out the high-low maxi just yet. Thought of mostly as a summer favorite, the romantic skirt, which not only frames a fabulous pair of heels but also cascades into a dramatic tail hem, has the power to be a major player in your transitional wardrobe. Typically when it comes to wearing a flowy maxi, the “rules” say to stick with a fitted top to counterbalance the skirt silhouette. But with summer officially over, a new list of rules has emerged. I say it’s time to try the complete opposite and go with something a little more loose and unexpected for fall like a soft embellished sweater.

Peplum flare

Peplums started making a comeback in 2009 (from it’s debut in the late forties and fifties). But, the revival of the trend has been apparent on the streets since September of 2011. And it’s popularity is increasing by the day. It is one of last year’s most celebrated trend. Labeled to be the most flattering trend in ages, this retro style is staying this year to give us a polished and curve complementing look. I like to channel all-out girlie style with a full skirt and a peplum blouse.
