Hello lovelies! It’s me, Sophie aka The Chic Flamingo, writing a blog post about fashion! It feels like a million years since I’ve sat down and wrote about an outfit, but I’m here today to share this ensemble I really love and a little bit about it.
I’m about to be a super broke fashion student here in about 8 weeks, and I think that’s a little crazy to think about. As much as I’d love to drop a few thousand dollars on a brand new wardrobe, it’s a pretty unrealistic wish. Shopping my closet as been a necessity for me to create new looks, and along the way I’ve been finding forgotten gems in giveaway piles as well. That’s where this denim overall skirt comes in.
I bought this gem from Old Navy (similar here) back before my sophomore year in high school for a 5SOS concert. If I had to guess, I’m sure I wore it less than five times before I shoved it to the back of my closet, only to be taken out when doing some spring cleaning, and thrown into a garbage sack bound for Goodwill.
The other day when I took that garbage sack out to drop it off at Goodwill, I rummaged through it to double check and see if I really wanted to get rid of everything in it. When I found the overalls, I about died because I couldn’t believe I was actually going to get rid of them!
I’ve paired my black overall skirt with a tube top I purchased from Shein. I saw this style of top all over Instagram, and figured I’d go outside my comfort zone and try it out. I’m pretty sure I bought it for $5, so it was a good deal. My shoes were bought from Marshalls last summer, but I’ve linked a similar pair here. An outfit isn’t complete without a little pink in my opinion, so of course I’m carrying a pink crossbody. The super sassy shades are from Marshalls and are by the brand Quay.
