A Time For Overalls

I just ordered a pair of overalls.  I feel like I am confessing.   I am completely aware of how unflattering pants are on me, let alone overalls.  My one asset is my waist and they completely hide that.  But I couldn't help it, I just really want a pair.  I think they are cute, not to mention fully functional for mamas.  I considered ordering from Freddies of Pinewood (can't try on a pair first) or having some made by NudeeDudee (really was leaning this way but I'd rather have a dress made and hope to soon), so in the end Dickies won out.  I also ordered this great pair of PF Flyers.  Dorothea Lange was the inspiration for my stay at home mama uniform this season.  Goodbye cotton housedresses, see you in the spring-but don't worry I'll still step out with you occasionally.

  1. I think it would be totally cute to have an overall dress that flairs at the bottom insinuating the waist. Just wish I could sew haha! I bet they are cute though :)

  2. whaaa I did a long reply and then it lost it! Ok long story short, yes there are totally times they are needed! I'm setting up a stall at an event today, I know me and the rest of the normally beautifully dressed stall holders will be in jeans or overalls!

  3. I think overalls are a must have for all mamas. You'll look super cute wearing them this season. I can't wait to get my hands on a pair of overalls as well.

  6. I like the idea of the stay-at-home-mama uniform. Now you've got me thinking about the metamorphosis of my own uniform :-)

  7. Oh wow they are super cute, you have done a very good job. I have to wear overalls for work but they are not the vintage variety ;-( how much better I would feel if I could wear these to work. Love the pictures to, you really have that classic look.
