I have fond memories of my overalls. I last wore them to a Michigan State tailgate. Back when sorority girls felt sexy in things like flannel shirts and overalls. (To this day, my husband likes them. Nostalgia, perhaps?)
But whatever. I loved them then, and love them still. I've been waiting (and predicted, in fact) an overall comeback…so when I saw gorgeous mom Lauren sportin' some sweet overalls, I almost tripped over my flares to stop her for a pic.
Instead of the 90's era overalls + flannel shirt combo (with work boots, naturally), Lauren updated hers with some wedges and uses a boyfriend sweater to nip in her waist.
I love it. I really, really do.
Inspired, I went home and busted my old college-era overalls out of storage. Oddly enough, I didn't look quite as tall and skinny as Lauren. (snort)
But I vow to keep trying. I mean seriously – these are SO mom friendly! For example, you can bend and pick up the kiddos without slippage! And no more muffin top! Pooch hiding! Nursing access! The potential is huge, people! HUGE!
However, like most 100%-mom-friendly finds *cough Danskos *cough*….overalls can also go very, very, very wrong.
So what about the rest of you? Is anyone else intrigued?
ps. Lauren's wearing Mavi overalls, an Old Navy cardigan and Aldo wedges.
