I’m back with a sunny new post and this time with my favourite buy from the summer. Out of all my summer pieces, my coolest and funkiest one has to be this pair of denim overalls.

I picked up this uber cool piece from Chen Chen Fashions at Church Street, Bangalore. I had been looking for a pair of dungarees/overalls for quite some time and I finally fell for this one. I think the fact that they’re not your conventional overalls is what drew me to the pair. What I also love is that it gives me the option to unbutton the suspenders and wear them as baggy denim pants as well.

The only drawback that I noticed was that these overalls aren’t very flattering to all body shapes and made my thighs look bulkier than they are. My solution to this was to wear this fitted crop top that showed a tad bit of skin. Doing so, made the whole outfit a bit more structured. This is one of my favourite tricks. While wearing loose or baggy bottoms, sometimes keeping the top a bit more fitted (or vice-versa) slims down the entire outfit.

I was once reading an article about breaking fashion rules and, mixing gold with silver accessories is one of the rules to be broken. I firmly believe mixing the two to be a strict no-no. This time I thought I’d give it a go with a gold crossbody and necklace along with a pair of silver flats. While the obsessive-compulsive side of me still doesn’t allow me to do it much, I think it manages to work with this outfit right?!

It’s Thursday and I already want to put my funky pants on and do a little happy dance. I guess it’s never too early to get your weekend mode on!
