t is no secret that I am under 5'7. Standing tall and proud at 5'3 there's a lot of things that I sometimes feel uncomfortable wearing especially before I started blogging. There's this stigma that if you're under a certain height you can't rock fashion probably designed for those 5'8 and up girls. I look up to bloggers like Olivia Rink who has completely shattered that stereotype, saying it's okay for us short girls to look cute in anything as well. That is what ultimately inspired me to write this blog post on the fabulous overalls because I've heard so many ladies, 5'7 and under, saying that it doesn't fit them right. I am going to be listing some of my favorite overalls and where you can buy them!
Overalls are so stinking cute and have been around for quite some time. I think my fourth-grade first-day picture has me in two ponytails and some overalls on. I think the beauty of fashion is that it's timeless and a lot of trends end up repeating themselves. I have seen so many overalls on different blogs and websites and I'm not going to lie, super excited for it!
I love overall dresses like the one I wore for my best friend's bachelorette. I got this cutie from Forever 21 and I'm not going to lie was so scared to try it on. Not only am I short but I have wider hips, more so than normal people, my mom likes to call them my child-bearing hips. My hips are so wide that sometimes it makes items of clothing fit pretty snug only around my hip area. What I love about this overall dress is that there are buttons you can use to keep it fastened or loosened (especially after you down a couple of chicken nuggets). It also isn't too loose at the top which I have found a lot of overall dresses are. Denim is always so fun to wear so I was so excited to find this denim overall dress that I simply adored. I am wearing a size small and it's honestly true to size. I know Forever 21 can sometimes be weird with their sizing but I found this one to be quite accurate. Here are some of my favorite overall dresses linked below. The first being the one I bought from Forever 21.
The OG Overalls
Some people are so afraid to wear overalls because they think there's this stigma of it being too country or off-putting. Of course, I never want to force people out of their comfort zone but I love them and there they're so cute. Personally, I love a pair of colorful overalls pairing them with a cropped top and some cute white gym shoes. This is perfect for our spring weather because it is cute and girly but can keep you warm in that 50 and 60-degree weather.
I love them because you can put your hair up in a messy bun or ponytail and add a cute colorful scarf to the mix getting you ready for the day! Below are some of my favorite colorful overalls and the links to where to buy them.
Remember, no matter how you choose to wear your overalls be yourself. Do what makes you happy and comfortable and add your own bit of sparkle to it. Don't let silly things like your height, or body shape, deter you from being authentically yourself. I hope my top overall picks helped you get in the springtime mood! Goodness knows we're all ready for it to come. Happy Friday lovelies until next time!
