#AEOSTYLE Challenge: Shortalls

We made the iconic throwback shortalls cool again this summer. Shortalls are the perfect piece for music festivals, a cover-up from beach to street or just hanging out.

We asked two bloggers, Marsa from The DayLee Journal and Ashley from Twenties Girl Style to style our Denim Shortall. The girls each styled the piece a completely different way, so you have inspiration for both warmer summer days and cooler spring nights.

Meet Marsa:
The DayLee Journal is a lifestyle blog about my day to day happenings.It started right after I got married, as a way for us to keep family and friends updated with our new life together, but soon after, the blog began to take a turn. Instead of just cheesy photos of the hubs and I, I started documenting my daily outfits from time to time. And thus, The DayLee Journal was born: a lifestyle blog with doses of personal style.

Marsa styled our Denim Shortall for a casual day out.

What Inspired Marsa’s Look:
I want to talk about these Shortalls! They’re comin’ back! Besides the fact that they’re obviously super cute, they’re also amazingly comfortable. Denim and oxblood are one of my favorite combos, so I wore these with a simple white tee, threw on the slouchy oxblood cardigan for some basic layering and topped it off with a wide brim hat. Simple, but a favorite for a casual day out.

Meet Ashley:
I am a clothes hoarder and fashion obsessed, a book worm and an elementary teacher. I created Twenties Girl Style as a personal style diary to showcase (you guessed it) my personal style. Although I am a twenty-something, Twenties Girl Style isn’t just about being in your twenties, but rather embracing your style, no matter the trend. It’s about being trendy, care free and effortless, so no matter your age, you can definitely be a twenties girl!

We can’t get enough of Ashley’s boho look with our Denim Shortall.

What Inspired Ashley’s Look:
I am obsessed with overalls/shortalls at the moment! Since receiving the Denim Shortall, I have worn them at least 10 different ways and I love how versatile they are. One of my favorite ways to wear these is with a more feminine flowy blouse and heeled booties. I love the laid back feel of the overalls but by adding this sheer off-the-shoulder top, it gives it a girly feel perfect for date night or a music festival! Every girl needs a pair of shortalls in her closet!
