top 4 ways to style overalls+ HP x360

Remember that Instagram teaser when I said I was styling and shooting something special with HP?! Well I'm officially partnering with them to share my style four ways in honor of the new HP x360, a laptop that can be used in four different modes- tent, tablet, stand, and laptop mode. I'm pretty obsessed with the chicness of the design and the versatility that I get from this savvy device. It has the compactness of a tablet, the usefulness of tent mode (hello rerun binges!), has a touch screen and is still a functioning laptop to boot! Inspired by the HP x360's different modes I wanted to style one of my favorite garments in 4 different ways.

Since my style is really difficult to pigeonhole into one classification and constantly evolving I wanted to showcase one special style that has grabbed ahold of my heart as of late- the overall. Overalls are  easy to style in various ways, they can be really high-fashion or casual downtown, and have the convenience factor of a no-brainer easy outfit. Since I already had several pairs stocked in a few shades and styles it made sense to share four of my favorite ways to wear them.

All denim

I generally start my day with coffee- so when I get to start the day at a coffee shop for meetings with potential clients, catching up with girlfriends, or grabbing a cup with my husband before the day begins it's a good day. This day I wanted a high-fashion, monochromatic look with a bit of glimmer in form of brooches and pins, and a sleek nude pump to elongate lines. I styled my light-denim-wash-boyfriend-overalls with a darker wash chambray, shirt and a similarly hued denim jacket for my morning coffee meeting.

Sporty casual

As much as I love my heels, this San Francisco gal needs an off-day. So on my casual dress-down days I really enjoy keeping it simple in a black and white color palette, and comfortable yet chic sneakers. With loose carefree curls, a big smile, and my HP x360 in tablet mode I can answer emails outside or in the park in my comfy-chic look.

Tomboy Chic

I'm determined to pretend it's not really winter, and that the sun peaking out means it's time to bust out my spring style looks- and this skirt overall set is really too perfect to keep hidden on a winter day. Good thing it was actually a gorgeous day in SF when I decided to put this printed polo, fedora, and high-top sneaker look with my denim romper.

Business Casual

When I need to run meetings, make an impression or feel my outfit needs a little professional oomph I don a blazer (and my HP x360). So blazer over overalls? Yes, all day, any day, it's so right on so many levels. This look is probably one of my favorites as it includes my go-to white buttonup- a classic piece with my otherwise cheeky outfit. Throw on some sculptural heels, maybe a bold lip and roll the hem up so a sliver of ankle peeks out! Perfection.
