How to Style Shortalls

Remember when you were a little kid and your parents put you in OshKosh B’Gosh purple shortalls? (Fun fact: Did you know OshKosh B’Gosh has been making kids clothes since 1895?!) Just me? Okay, well then…

Do you ever feel like you need to buy something to go to a place, i.e. you’re going to France so you should probably buy skinny white jeans and lots of striped tops or you’re going to Austin so you should buy cowboy boots? This is how I ended up with a pair of shortalls in my closet.

I don’t know what exactly it is about Nicaragua that screamed, “You should definitely wear shortalls” but I ended up with a pair in a shopping bag a week or so before I left.

Shortalls NOT in Nicaragua.

It takes me 20 photos to not stand in 4th position from dancing ballet for 10+ years.

I’m also all about white. And neutrals in general. I have this silky Brandy Melville tank I literally always I forget I have but love when I wear it. I decided to pull it out of the old tank top drawer to take to Cincinnati.

Pittsburgh or Cincinnati?

Doesn’t Cincinnati look just like Pittsburgh? Isn’t it weird? Also, this is what I look like after a 12 mile run in the heat and not washing my hair because the humidity made it totally not worth it. Also, I had a blowout scheduled in two days. Aren’t I the worst? But hey, my hair is INSANELY healthy.

Anyway, so what should your wear with shortalls? I love crop tops, simple neutral colored tanks, bralettes and bandeaus, and swim tops. I love adding a pop of color with shoes.

Shoes for a POC (pop-of-color).

Thanks to my cousin Jaimie for being the photographer and for putting up with me always. Also Angela for being the moral support behind this frenzied photo shoot. Love you both so, so much.
