What happens when you combine two ridiculous things into one amazingly ridiculous thing? This outfit. Culottes + Overalls is a combination I had no idea I would be so into until JustFab sent me these schnazzy things. I planned my outfit for the next day, bebopped to work and...got rained on the whole walk home. That's why I'm taking today's outfit photos standing in my dining room instead of in a more hip blogger spot - because the world needed to see another grown woman in *essentially* a playsuit and I refused to deny them this.
I just can't with the 90's (temps, not the era. all hail overalls!) any more, so when I got dressed this morning I just NEEDED SOMETHING. So I added a vest. I wouldn't normally wear a long vest with some culottes, but I've gone crazy. Something in my head has snapped, and now I just wear whatever pops into my head because FASHION. I'm even wearing Spanx so it all hangs properly, because I'm an ADULT. FALL. UGGS. BUZZWORDS.
An adult who uses A LOT OF CAPS LOCK OKAY??? I'm actually not sure I brought a full brain back from Vegas, but I did bring some nice presents for myself from Neiman Marcus. Now enjoy this extremely odd outfit that I actually really enjoyed wearing today, even if it kind of looks like a muumuu. I'm just embracing the 90 year old inside of me.
The case for all black is as follows: it looks good, takes 0% effort to match, and sometimes, it tricks people into thinking you're wearing one piece. When rompers first came into style, I paired a black tank tucked into black shorts and put a belt over the waist, and people complimented me on my "romper" all evening. Add in the magic of culottes that sometimes look like a midi skirt, and BOOM. My blog is all smoke and mirrors.
