Happy Tuesday! Let’s talk overalls: the denim bib that I love to love. I was actually curious recently about the general opinion on overalls outside of the microcosm of overall worshipers that I am a part of. Like guys, for instance, what do they think when a girl wears overalls? I asked a few of my guy friends for their honest opinions and not surprisingly they said that overalls were a no go. A few of them said that a girl in overalls might be considered cool because it shows the girl wearing them is different and unique but still she would have to be a unicorn to catch their attention beyond that. A few other opinions aligned on the fact that overalls are ok for daytime wear but never ever should they be worn at night or – gasp – on a date.
This obviously made me want to wear my overalls out at night and on tons of dates, because, what kind of rule is that, right? These reactions, although expected, were still a little bit funny to me since when I wear my overalls I generally get a lot of positive commentary on them. The more I think of it, the more I am certain overalls (especially those that are not skin tight) are strictly girl-cute. But hey, since I’ve long ago come to terms with the fact that 90% of the time I dress for girls rather than guys this makes sense. Overalls are just a part of the girl-cute club. But still, if you see me out, at night, on a date – wearing overalls, you know why.
Happy Tuesday, happy almost MDW, and happy almost SUMMER!
