Overalls: The struggle to love them

Main imageOveralls have become a staple

Overalls have once again become a wardrobe staple in the closets of so many women. I remember when they first started popping up everywhere a few years back. I was not a fan of them! They reminded me of that time in my life when I wore jellies, spandex shorts, and sported a chin length bob haircut that was shaved underneath (I cringe when I think about it!). I didn’t exactly equate overalls with feeling like a woman. I felt like a woman-child, is that a thing? The styles and washes I saw were still really awful and unflattering to me. Slowly, I saw improvement and caught myself even liking a few pairs of overalls that I saw on celebs and other fashionistas, but I still didn’t really like them and definitely couldn’t see myself sporting them. Fast forward a few years to now, I’m a huge fan and think that they’re totally great! I think once I saw someone wearing a pair that I could “see” myself in was the moment of change.

I overcame my uncertainty

I embraced the overall– yay, me! Once I decided that I wanted a pair, I then had to decide on a style. I, obviously, ended up landing on black and highwaisted *shocking*! I actually found my overalls the old fashioned way, I saw a woman wearing this amazing pair of overalls and asked her where she got them from. She got them at Madewell. I think I almost instantly went there to try them on to see if they fit! I usually have a bit of difficulty with one piece items like a romper or a swimsuit. My body type is not really made for them because, even though I’m shorter, I have a long torso and a booty. This makes it pretty difficult to find things that fit because there’s just not enough material. Thankfully, overalls have adjustable straps which help someone like me out a lot! This was a pair that flattered my body shape and fit my style perfectly! The struggle to love them was over. Madewell is a great spot for quality wardrobe staples if you haven’t checked them out yet. They have a big sale on some of their overalls right now, too. Since these bad boys are highwaisted, I can wear them with all my crop tops, bralets, and bodysuits for spring and summer. Let’s just say, I don’t feel like a kid in these overalls!

Thanks for stopping by and reading! Have a lovely weekend.

    I love overalls on you! It’s so key to wear it with the white plain shirt underneath. It’s edgy and cool! Plus I like that it’s a big cozy and covers my middle – HA.

    Love this!

      Thanks Krista!! I adore white tee’s with overalls too. I guess that’s kind of evident haha. I wore them with a striped crop top over the weekend and everyone loved it (I took note). OMG you are too funny!! Love it xx

  13. Lindsay on April 25, 2016 at 5:54 pm

    I love the title of this post!! I can so relate. I LIVED in overalls when I was a kid, and I want to love that they’re back for adults. I definitely have a booty, and I fear my body will look so strange in overalls, but you look so amazing that I am tempted to try it out : )

    • Meaghan Gonzalez on April 27, 2016 at 3:06 pm

      Haha thank you Lindsay! Yes, it’s such a weird transition to trying to imagine yourself wearing them again. It may take time to find the right pair, but there is a great selection out there, so I’m sure you’ll find them. Have a great day!xx

  14. Kristin Kruse on April 25, 2016 at 6:44 pm

    Total babe!! I love these black overalls and especially love how you paired them with the flatforms. I’ve yet to find my ‘perfect’ pair and had given up but now you make me want to keep looking!

    xox,
    Kristin

    • Meaghan Gonzalez on April 27, 2016 at 3:16 pm

      Well, I’m glad I could inspire you to renew your search! Thank you for your sweet compliments, I have a weakness for flatforms and all things black haha. Have a lovely week xx

      Why thank you! That’s all my awesome photographers doing. I think the key is just finding the right ones for you. Some are definitely young looking, but there are also lots of cute ones that will work for women and make you feel great. Hope you find a pair. Have a great week Tara xx
