Buckle-up again – Overalls

In the same series with the suspenders let’s continue buckle-up with “overalls” or “bib and brace overalls” or “dungarees” as various names for the same beautiful piece of clothes. To make it easy I will call it overalls.

If in the 1700s when they were created the main purpose was a uniform for the working staff later they became a fashion statement in the 60′ -70′ as emblematic for hippies and college students.

I was a senior in high school when I bought my first blue jeans overalls and I was so proud. I went home and after my mom told me that I looked exactly like a railroad mechanic in heels, my dearest father called me “My modern farmer girl” and we went out for lunch only the two of us.

If my first overalls were a little baggy made from tough jeans the second one was very fitted- slim fit, white, made from soft type of denim, the next one was a shortall dark washed stretch-denim and so on. In that year I bought a lot of them in different style and colors. I found them very easy to wear and with a little bit of patience the same overalls can be part of a casual outfit or a classy one, change only the accessories and the attitude 🙂

Strangely I was never a fan of dress overalls, I found them too childish or too mature.

I don’t know why but with years I gave up my passion for them until last week when I fell in love again 🙂 As I’m not as thin as I was few years ago I decided not to go for a slim fit one and I chose a relaxed one.

Here is my new jeans overalls, with a regular top, a messy pony tail and of course high heels for a casual look.

– the low quality of the pictures is due to my excitement to put it on later that day when it was almost sunset 🙂
