Dressing Up Overalls

MATERNITY OVERALLS - $10, Walmart
RED TANK TOP - $5, Target
BLACK CARDIGAN - $15, Motherhood Maternity
GRAY HAT - $20, Albertus Swanepoel for Target
GRAY WEDGE BOOTIES - $7, Old Navy



Last night Pigtails ran into my room wearing a diaper, t-shirt and two flower headbands around her waist.  I was quite impressed with her "accessorizing."  It almost looked like a tutu.  Usually it's Princess Sparkles who's decked out in fanciness, but her little sister definitely has her own sense of style!

These are the $10 maternity overalls I got from Walmart. I know, a lot of people don't like overalls but for some reason I find them comfy (though not the easiest for public bathroom usages). I paired them with my $7 Old Navy wedge booties and an Albertus Swanepoel for Target hat. I wanted to link up to Silverstyle's "Trending Through The Decades: Accessories." 

Pigtails "accessorizes" her diaper with her sister's flower headbands

My ultimate accessorizer, Princess Sparkles

I always admire other bloggers for their ability to accessorize multiple bracelets and statement necklaces.  I'm not the greatest at accessorizing, it's a lot of work for me and I never feel like I quite get it right.  I need an accessory rule book that shows me which pieces I can mix and match or I should just take a page from Princess Sparkles and Pigtails and just wear everything all together!!!

I never wear more than one necklace, like you i look at bloggers who do it and think they look good, but if i tried that i would look like i couldnt decide which one to wear!

Do you think your girl's styles are similar to yours?

I like how overall look on tall people, but I've never been able to pull it off.

I adore arnold palmers. I wish there was a similar drink for the winter.

Awwww your girls are in another set of darling pictures. Little pigtails indeed =) Im a bit the same as you hun. NEVER accesorise much (except for a necklace here or there lol) and also feel that this is because they always seem so fussy haha. Looking adorable in your overalls. Do you know the sex of your new little bub?

I'm starting to think that my new fashion rule might be 'when in doubt, turn to Claire's girls for inspiration'...those two have some style!

I'm pretty sure it runs in the family, though :)

Those overalls are insanely cute! It's true that most people think of them as sloppy or gardening attire, but if you wear them right, they look adorable! And you are wearing them SO right. Those booties are gorgeous. And your girls look so cute! Pigtails is precious, and Princess Sparkles looks incredibly glamorous!
