If you look at the Spring J. Crew catalogue, you’ll see that overalls are in again! Of course they glammed it up with a cute blazer and heels. I don’t know if I could pull that off, but I could pull off something a bit more casual.
Years ago I would often sport a pair of overalls with a cute little shirt and then slip on a pair of flip flops and voila! an outfit! I miss those days. I didn’t wonder if it went together or worry about much else really. That was a long time ago. Since I am a pack rat of the worst kind, I still have those overalls I wore years ago. I know, why? But now I’m wondering if I could figure out a way to bring them back. The overalls I own aren’t as fitted as the fancy J.Crew kind, but I wonder if I can do it. What if I wore these overalls WITH my new/old Birks? Is that too crazy? Would I out hippie a hippie?
1. Ho-down (the kind with square dancing, not the kind with Hos)
2. Rib eating contest
3. Grateful Dead show
I don’t see myself attending any of these events, so maybe I should put these in the Goodwill pile. If I don’t, I fear I will be on that show Hoarders, and no one wants to see that happen. Maybe people do want to see that. I mean, I mention in passing to friends that I think I might be a hoarder and old friends will chime in, “Oh yeah, dude, you will totally end up on that show. You keep everything. Yeah, you’re totally a hoarder. Totally.” I mention it only because I want them to say “Oh, you’re not that bad. You aren’t a Hoarder, just a little messy sometimes.” Whatevs people. Whatevs! I guess that’s what you get when you’re fishing for approval.
Now is the time for these overalls to go in the trash. Now! Today is a new day.
