Hi there!

As Winter slowly draws to a close I love finding ways to incorporate a Spring look with layers so I’m still season-appropriate for winter. One trend I have been wanting to style lately is the overall look. 

These overalls (a steal on sale currently at Topshop!!) are with a skirt which is so fun and flirty, and the black velvet with little flowers allows it to be worn in different seasons plus the flowers are looking forward to spring. Because I was in the Catskills last weekend going to a meditation retreat, I photographed this with the winter landscape as the contrast with my bright Zara turtleneck added a fun pop of color to the snowy landscape. I finished the look with black leggings and my new black buckled moto boots I found at a little boutique while in Paris recently. These boots can be found on so many sites and in so many stores right now, they are right on trend! I even witnessed my fave (she’s also Brazilian) fashion blogger sporting Givenchy identical ones on her way to Paris Fashion week yesterday! I was also carrying my large Chanel vintage tote I have been using nonstop lately.

There are so many fun ways to sport overalls, and the key is to have fun with it. You can’t go wrong!

Xo,
