Comeback Kids

Happy Memorial Day all! I hope you had a blessed day with those you love remembering the great sacrifice of all who have laid down their lives for our country, those who currently serve, & all their families. I just wanted to squeeze in one last fashion post for May before the craziness of June sets in…& the Romance & Purity celebration, & Grace’s (“Grace’s Garden Walk”) Nancy Drew reading event, & so many other exciting summery things! Please check back tomorrow for the kickoff of Bess’ Bag’s first ever, all month-long celebration: Romance & Purity month! And don’t worry more fashion posts are still to come, too!
Love you all!

-Comeback Kids-

Cartoons on Saturday, lemonade stands, imaginary friends, Barbies, tree houses, & meals that came with toys…ah, the good old days of childhood. Most likely during those days you wore a romper or a pair of overalls (or both=) at least once. Well, my friend, they’re back!

It was indeed a surprise to many to see the overalls & rompers (jumpsuits/playsuits – they have many aliases=) out on major spring runways such as Ralph Lauren (pictured here), & a myriad of other top designers this season. So, go don some nostalgic childhood garb…I think I hear a teeter-totter calling somewhere…

...My Way

What I've Donned:

Capri Overalls - No Boundaries - thrift store (They still had the original tags on 'em!)
Gray Peasant Top - (Relativity) - thrift store
Vintage-Looking Lace Trim Blouse (worn underneath gray top) - Quizz - thrift store
Cat Pin & Bracelets - ? - yard sale
Slight Gladiator Sandal - Montego Bay Club - Payless

TIP: If you have a buttoned top that is styled without any buttons higher up, & leaves your chest too exposed, try pinning the shirt together in place of buttons with a vintage pin.

FYI: It's hard to find a modest & affordable romper!
