If you were to go to my parents’ home, you’d see a picture of me and two of my sisters in matching denim overalls and red tee shirts, posing by a pond. We had fishing poles, pigtails… the works. It’s the cutesiest little photo you ever did see, but it marked the end of overalls for this gal, or so I thought.
Maybe it’s because I grew up à la compagne and associated overalls with all things rural. Or maybe it’s because oh-so-adorable photo of the six-year-old, overall-clad Casey will forever be engrained in my memory.
For whatever reason, I was pretty confident in saying that I’d never don a pair overalls again until just a few months ago. One day as I was scrolling through Instagram, I saw a picture of one of my favorite fashionista’s wearing overalls. She looked cool and comfy and not at all country.
Hmmm, I thought. I might need to reconsider my overall aversion.
And reconsider I did. As a matter of fact, I reconsider enough to add three pairs of overalls to my wish list: one long pair, one short pair, and a dress pair!
I recently ran across this fun pair of overalls that I just couldn’t say no to. I love how the non-traditional suspender-like straps add a little bit of character to an otherwise basic pair of dungarees.
