Buttons Up

Hello, beautiful! Happy Friday! I hope your week has been super productive. I'm not going to lie to you I am super pumped about the long weekend. If you have been following along you know that I am an assistant buyer for Chadwicks of Boston. Not only are we wrapping up the winter/holiday 2017 season we have begun planning for spring/summer 2018 if you can believe that.

Anyway let's get to the real reason why we are here, the fashion.

Buttons up! (Haha see what I did there) Button front skirts have been a trend first seen in the fall & continuing into the warmer months. During the fall/winter we saw faux suede mini skirts with snap buttons. For the spring/summer I am seeing them in denim & other lighter fabrications. 

I actually got this skirt about 7 years ago when I stepped into my first Zara. Which was not actually in the USA but Lisbon, Portugal. This skirt has been a spring/summer staple in my wardrobe. Typing this I honestly can't even believe I've had it for that long.

Completing this look is a ruffle knit tank, braided pink belt, & sky high wedges. The tank I actually got from the boutique I once managed, Daisy Riley in Plymouth, MA. The belt I believe I also got at Zara, I have wrapped the excess belt preventing it from flopping all over the place. And the shoes I got from DSW. I particularly love this skirt because it has pockets.

Not only will you be able to find the button front treatment on skirts but on dresses as well. It is a lovely spring/summer trend. How will you be wearing it?

Well fash dolls this concludes our post. I hope that you feel inspired to try the button front trend for yourself. Till next time!

Stay Sassy & God Bless!

 

Oshkosh Called, They want their Overalls Back

Hello, beautiful! Happy Friday! I hope this week has treated you well. I have one of my bestie's weddings this weekend & I can't wait to be able to stand next to her on her big day. The same friend inspired my to buy my first pair of overalls since my childhood. My second job in high school was as a sales associate at Oshkosh B'Gosh, you know the kids clothing store? Overalls were in high demand during my time there. Now they are one of the hottest trends for adults coming in overall skirts, pants, or shorts (pictured). Keep scrolling to see more details.

I love the overall shorts. I think they are a fun spring/summer trend. Easy for the weekend or to throw on over your bathing suit when you hit the beach for the day. This particular one piece I got from Macy's online, they literally only had once size left. My friend got hers from the GAP outlet. 

For a fun yet casual look I have outfitted my overalls with a crop top, espadrille wedges, & a choker. No weekend warrior outfit is complete without a coffee in hand. In this outfit I feel like 90's grundge meets a hint of girl next door. 

Maybe this trend isn't for you or maybe you want to give it a shot but are hesitant. If that is you I would suggest maybe starting out with the overall skirt. I feel like that is a smoother transition. Like dresses or jumpsuits overalls are a great throw & go instant outfit. Life can be crazy so simplicity is our friend.

Well fash dolls that concludes today's post. I hope my overall look has given you some outfit inspo. I find that it is always refreshing to go outside our outfit comfort zone. I definitely stepped out of mine with this look. Have a great weekend.

Stay Sassy & God Bless!
