True Story: My husband absolutely hates it when I wear denim overalls (sorry honey!), but I absolutely love ’em. Since marriage is all about compromise, I try to keep my overall-wearing to a minimum… for the most part. In any case, I was doing some serious spring cleaning over the weekend (I’m about ~80% with my wardrobe switch, woohoo!), and this was the perfect outfit to toss on for a quick break to grab some grub in our neighborhood.

I scooped up this pair from Uniqlo for my trip to Alaska a while back, so they’ve been worn in to that perfect softness that denim gets after repeated wearing. I’m on the lookout for a new pair of denim overalls to break-in (preferably in black, olive or dark rinse), so I’ve included a roundup of my favorite contenders just in case any of your are on the hunt for some yourself.

While I do enjoy experimenting with my style, I always find myself coming back to classics, slightly preppy looks – like this simple schoolgirl-inspired contrast-collar dress and tailored wool coat. I recently had to head out of town unexpectedly with only 30 minutes to pack. With no time to spare, I reached for the easy, no-fail pieces in my closet like this dress and it’s grey counterpart. Now that I think about it, I probably have 5-6 versions of this outfit in different colors and sleeve lengths… and that suits me just fine. To keep the look from being boring, I added red lips (on my face and on my dress, lol!) for an unexpected touch of color.

And what about you – do you have a favorite fallback or style that you come back to again and again?
