Overexpose describes an event where the image (or part of it) has received more light than is required for optimal exposure.  Overexposure can be extreme (blown out) or minimal (which can be fixed in software adjustments).

Reviewing your histogram will enable you to see right away if an image is overexposed. This is the opposite of underexposure (too dark).
