In all honesty, I can’t really decide whether this blouse makes me feel more like a pirate or an 18th century French soldier.. But regardless of the inspiration behind the design one thing is certain – I love this shirt. Since purchasing it I have realized that if I don’t feel at least 1% ridiculous when getting dressed in the morning, I probably don’t love the outfit as much as I could. I feel best about my outfits when I’m a little bit out of my comfort zone, and the enormous sleeves on this shirt do just the trick!

As unsensible as leather on leather in the middle of June sounds, it’s actually something I’ve been considering a lot lately. There’s something about leather that makes everybody feel cool, or free, and I can only help but feel that summer also makes us feel this way. If we overlap the two, who knows how many people would be confidently **swaggering** around right now. In addition to these thoughts, consider the massive upswing of suede styles currently in stores. People are willing to put themselves into trendy(ish) suede to summer fashion – why not our ever-in-style leather?

Again, I must emphasize my complete insanity for even suggesting leather in this season, but these are just some thoughts I’ve been exploring. When the weather is even somewhat forgiving this summer, you can rest assured that I’ll probably be melting somewhere dressed head to toe in leather.

Of course summer style is a great way to explore different ways to wear shorts, dresses, and skirts (because let’s face it, we have no choice). But when it’s 100+ degrees out, I personally would rather do anything but attempt to put myself together under such uncomfortable circumstances. So when I’m faced with these situations, I have my go to – jeans and a tank. A basic outfit, I know. But sometimes when you have no other choice, you’ve got to embrace the simplicity and go for some “minimalism” to mask your rightful outfit laziness.

The title “Green Thumb” seemed like the most appropriate way to summarize this series of photos. While it ties together the perfect olive color of my overalls and the complete farmer’s vibe going on, it is also the last phrase anybody should associate with me. Simply put, my thumbs are anything but green. But a girl can dream and dress up, right?

In all seriousness, this is a big day for me because I never thought I’d be able to wear overalls. Being blunt, I just don’t have the <<<twig-like>>> body shape you need most of the time to make them work. But alas I’ve finally found the perfect pair to reverse all of these beliefs. It took a while, but I’ve found my soulmate overalls and I’m never letting them go.
