Overalls & Gingham

Earlier this week, E and I celebrated one month of marriage.  Isn't it funny how you date for years and years (almost a decade in our case) but once you get married the count starts all over again!? We've been together for almost 10 years and we went out to celebrate four weeks of something. But, no  complaints here, I'll support any excuse to have oysters and a glass of rose.  We went to a new oyster bar near our neighborhood called Muddy Waters  I'd been dying to try it for some time and Eric surprised me with reservations on Friday! 

We just got these overalls in at No. 14 and I felt like a little girl in a candy store.  I vividly remember writing this buy in the showroom and screaming (literally screaming) "OH MY GOSH- O V E R A L L S - YESSS!" Me- dramatic? Nooo - never! ;) 









I had these hanging in my closet for almost a week, trying them on with different shoes and different tops.  I couldn't get a grasp on how to make them flatter my body or how to update them from just being your basic overalls.  The turning point? I rolled the pant legs.   If you follow No. 14 on snapchat ( @No_14lville) you know how much of an emphasis I put on styling each piece of clothing to be your own.  Just rolling your sleeve, popping your collar, or adjusting one button can make a world of difference to your outfit & this little update gave me a whole new outlook on these overalls! 

I loved the idea of pairing a bodysuit under the overalls because it made the look streamlined. I also paired it with this bright lip (in color HEATWAVE) to add a pop to the outfit. Lastly, you know I just adore these gingham sandals (on sale now!) from J.Crew this summer. I am using every excuse I can to wear them before the fall weather really creeps in.

Currently Coveting: 

This year I told myself that I would invest in a pair of Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots like these, or these.  But!!! I recently just found a very similar style for much much cheaper.  These boots are currently on their way to me. I ordered the brown because I think the color is perfect for fall- I will keep you posted as to how they turn out!

Also, have you heard about all of the designer shoe sales going on?! Here are some of my favorites:
This pair of Jimmy Choos, they are the perfect fall pump.
The colors in these Givenchy pumps, these Jimmy Choo pumps & these Prada pumps are so incredible. You know I love my pastels.
I have also been loving white shoes recently and these Valentinos and these amazing Jimmy Choos  are absolutely stunning!
