that time i finally thrifted some overalls

 back in college, i had the best pair of overalls. red gingham, shorted ones. i'd stick tights under them, and wear them to the library where i worked. one pocket held my ipod so i could jam while shelving books, another held my snack. everyone gave me weird looks when i strolled across campus in them, and more than one joke was made at their expense. it was fantastic. 

and then when we moved something horrible, something unspeakable, happened to the red gingham shorteralls: they were lost. since then, i've scoured the thrift shops to find some kind of replacement, with little luck. and then last week, this little pair was lurking in the little boy's section, waiting to rock my world. and obviously robbie loves them…cuz these majorly sexy, ten-pocket bad boys turn any street pigeon into a luscious swan. right? harharhar. 

 a note on sizing: i'm 5'5, and these are a little boy's size m (10/12). they are short, and have to be rolled. if you're shorter than me (or about my size but more evenly portioned -- i'm all legs), a size m is probably the way to go. if you're taller, try a l/xl, or keep scouring the women's section. ; )

  2. I love it! I have also been scouring to find some overalls...A little throwback to 5th grade when I had a pair in every shade. Those were the days.....

  3. i can't believe these fit you so well! how tall are you? i always thought you were about my height, but i never thought little boys' overalls would be an option for me. (now little boys' blazers, i'm all about.) hm...i may just have to give them a try!

  7. So cute! I used to hate when my mom dressed me in overalls, so I haven't worn them since I was little. But they're on trend right now, maybe I should try and thrift some!!
