not your college overalls

Remember how, in college, you used to wear things that are basically horrifying when you see them now in pictures? No? Just me? 

(Also, thank you Jesus that I have to actually locate printed photos, and there's no record of that ISh on Facebook. Because I'm a fossil. #itsfine)

For me, it was a pair of Guess overalls, that I wore ALL. THE. TIME. I loved them so much, y'all. I may or may not have even worn them with one shoulder undone

The answer is yes. I'm as embarrassed as you are. 

Anyway, like much of the fashion in the late 90's, my overalls were NOT CUTE. And I made myself a solemn vow to NEVER, EVER WEAR OVERALLS AGAIN.  

A vow which I broke. Because Free People, y'all. They tricked me into buying their super cute, stretchy, and stylish overalls.  And I'm not mad about it. 

(John's mad about it though. He says to CALM DOWN, and quit taking our money, Free People.)

I love overalls for all kinds of occasions, BUT, I really love styling them for date night. So, I'm gonna share Sherri's Dressy Overalls Formula. It's very scientific and fancy. 

Overalls (duh) + an off the shoulder top + animal print heels + a fun clutch 

You may even want to consider this for a little holiday that rhymes with Schmalentines Day. Here are a few of my faves in case you wanna rock some overalls for date night too.  

Until next time,
