The Conductor

Overalls are a big, yet somewhat of controversial trend for Spring. Some love it, and some hate it but I had to give it a try!

My OOTD:
Top: Zara Long Sleeve Black White Stripe Crop Top (old, similar here)
Shoes: Kate Spade Red Bow Marie Heels (old, similar here under $100)
Jewels: Tiffany Rings // Gold PavĂ© Link chain bracelet 
Everyone is wearing the Current Elliot Ranch Hand Overalls (lighter wash here and here) which look AMAZING on tall-skinny-modelesque types… which I am not - short girls rule! They are also $350 dollars, which is a little steep for me to try a trend - I like to try to stick to under $75 when trig out a trend that may not translate into other seasons! With overalls it's really important to dress for your body type. I love a good boyfriend Jean, but since I walk the line between curvy and petite all while being five foot nothing, BF jeans do NOTHING for my body! I can still get away with carefully wearing them (last seen here), but when It came to overalls, I had to go with a skinny jean! The skinny shape helped actually give me a figure and kept me from looking like a toddler (well, I hope!)
I have a fun announcement (drum roll please) I am now a fashion contributor for Jet Magazine Online - hoorayI talk all about overalls and other spring trends in my latest article: 9 Spring Trends You Should TryYou can check it out here, I would love to know what you think! Oh and what about overalls in general? Is this a trend to love or to leave? Style sound off, ready - GO!
