#StyleStalking: Overalls With Alexandra

Outfit details: Washable Silk Overalls from Go Silk, Topshop Crop Top, Zara Leather Booties (super great alternative here),  Illia Clutch, Ray-Ban Sunglasses

I introduce to you ladies and gentlemen, the chicest New Yorker I know, Alexandra Rodrigues. Alex and I grew up together and shared the same love obsession for fashion at a very young age. It's true that we once snuck an issue of Vogue into our Business Law class to catch up on the latest catwalk trends instead of paying attention to the mid-term exam overview. Rebels? No. Just two teens dying to make their way to New York City to live amongst the most fashionable people in the world. 

I always admired Alex for her ability to take low budget pieces and style them into an ultra couture-looking ensemble. Every time I see her it looks like she has stepped out of a magazine. I'm always completely shocked when she tells me a few of her pieces are from Forever21. She styles them so well, you would never know. 

What I love the most about this outfit is the silk material of the overalls and chunky ankle booties. Overalls usually tend to look very boxy and stiff. The lightweight fabric helps to soften the look and the classic ankle booties perfectly finish off this laid-back combo. 

So what do you think, will you experiment with overalls for fall? Hope this outfit convinced you! Click on the below Mavatar button to shop some more lightweight overall alternatives hand-selected by Alex and I.

P.S. In case you were wondering, here's some insight on the #stylestalking series: Since a young age I have been obsessing over the art of style. I enjoy watching how other men and women put their outfits together. When I see a perfectly styled outfit, I get a super excited feeling and the urge to tell that person I love them...and their outfit. It usually puts me in a really awkward situation after approaching complete strangers, but I don't mind. Which is why I am introducing my #stylestalking series. I want to share my favorite styles straight from the streets of New York (or any other city for that matter) from real women and men. A good outfit should never go unnoticed.
