So I’ve had these bells for over a year now and I’ve only worn them a handful of times. I bought them at the beginning of last summer, but they were one of those things that I couldn’t figure out what to pair with them, so I didn’t really wear them that often. However, this summer I just decided to say F it, and throw on little crop tops (shocking, I know) and call it a day.

This crop top, on the other hand, I wear quite often! It’s one of my favorites to throw on with pretty much everything from bells, to skirts, to my trusty overalls! It’s comfortable and to be honest, anything I don’t have to wear a bra with gets extra gold stars in my book. Comfort is key in the summer.
Side note: this is the first time I’ve actually shown my belly button on my blog, hah. It’s become one of those body parts that I spend an unusual amount of energy trying to cover up and hide all the time. It’s become way too exhausting trying to conceal it constantly, and ya know what, I’ve had two babies. This is what my body looks like. My belly button may not be my favorite part of myself anymore, but it’s mine so whatever, here it is world! Deal with it. ;] Anyway. These bells are amazingly comfortable, AND they’re still available, AND on major sale. YAY! Go, go, go!
I never thought I would fall back in love with overalls but I found a pair last year from Hollister that fit like a glove and I’ve been wearing them non-stop ever since. Actually I was wearing them while grocery shopping a while ago and the checkout guy asked me if I was going home to do work in the yard later. Hashtag rude. Newsflash guy: overalls have come back into style and they are no longer just for yard work! Get over it.

These sneakers bring me riiiiiiight back to middle school it’s insane. I had a pair of Puma’s in every color combo you could think of but my favorites were the classic black and white. The tops were all worn off from my hacky sac days. Don’t judge me. I grew up by the beach with a bunch of hippies, that was our thing, haha. So anyway. I rediscovered Pumas into my adult years and I fell back in love. Overalls and Pumas… I seriously feel like I’m in middle school again!
Wanna know why I really actually am so all about overalls? So many options when it comes to crop tops because it covers that super awkward part of my stomach that I hate! haha, but seriously. I can wear whatever crop top I want and not have to stress over juuuust how much of my flab is actually exposed… #mommyproblems.
Overalls are a pretty stress free garment. If you find the right pair you can even dress them up. They don’t have to be plain ol’ denim anymore. I’ve seen overalls in every fabric from satin to leather these days and they all look fabulous! Also look for a pair of shorts overalls to tackle the trend but not sweat your way through summer. Sometimes I’m all about these trends making their comebacks!
