THE OVERALL DRESS

Overall Dress by Ali & Kris
The last time i wore an overall dress, it had nothing to do with fashion.

In junior high school we were made to wear plain green modest overall dresses as part of our school uniform but once we became seniors we had to switch to skirts. Being a school uniform, it had to be below the knees and definitely not hip hugging tight or pencil, but loose and A-lined. "Ugh, really?" We actually called it a pinafore and we wore a white blouse with it. Ever since my junior days, i have never looked back at overall dresses until now.

Although, i thought it was really cute, I was still not convinced about this floral print overall. I just couldn't see past how really childish it might look, especially on my petite self. All i could think of was how to style it to be more grown up or mature. Styling it with the tube crop top was my first attempt to mixing the cute in it with some edgy appeal of the crop top and heels. Boy, did i fall in love.... I guess, it is okay to give that sweet kiddie side in all of us a chance.

Busola, I know what you're talking about because my grade school uniform was similar. But this is grown up chic!! Love the back.

Lubka Christova said...

You just inspired me to take out my floral overall dress and style it up. I've been thinking for a while, but wasn't sure... now I'm so gonna do it! :))
Thanks for the idea, Bu xx
