Discovering Overalls

Tights, Overalls, Denim, Chambray, Red, Stripes   

I was so stoked on yesterday. I was awaiting an early morning call to run up the ski hill that never came so I wasted away my morning lounging in bed. I always have every intention to jump up and get running with my day, but the lure of my cozy bed is always too much to let me move. I also had every intention to get outside for a (cold) run. Instead I enjoyed a a lazy morning, breakfast with my guy, and a day running about like kids at the Discovery Center.Tights, Overalls, Denim, Chambray, Red, Stripes

Today was the first in a series of free Sunday’s at our local Discovery Center, so I made sure to make a visit. Who doesn’t love free things. They just celebrated their 25th anniversary, so the front area was filled with classic experiments that they’ve had over the years. I’m just sad I missed the liquid nitrogen ice cream they had at the official celebration. Since I felt like I was going on a kids outing, I got dolled up with little kid in mind.Tights, Overalls, Denim, Chambray, Red, Stripes

I just got these overalls while on a shopping run with friends. I love going out with them because we always just go to Plato’s closet and joke around over the wonderful, and hilarious things we find there. The best part about the place is we walk out with a cool little selection of clothes, all at a very reasonable budget. Debating whether the $10 sweater is worth the price¬†always¬†feels great but¬†absurd. If you want recent fashion on¬†a¬†budget, I highly recommend it. This trip I managed to grab a few of my wishlist pieces, one of which is this Heritage denim shirt! The perfect chambray shirt has been on my wishlist for ages while I’ve had no luck locating one. Now I managed to¬†acquire¬†two in¬†one evening! Pretty much a perfect way to begin 2014.Tights, Overalls, Denim, Chambray, Red, StripesTights, Overalls, Denim, Chambray, Red, Stripes

Are there any clothes that remind you of childhood?

Overalls Are A Girls Best Friend

I must admit that I have been enthralled with overalls ever since I saw Matilda. I still think on that final montage,  with Ms. Honey (Embeth Davidtz) rollerblading around the living room. I thought her shortalls there were the epitome of cool. I wanted to be like her when I grew up. Confident, happy, and in overalls.

I was so excited when I found this pair,¬†but since that fateful day I have discovered exercise, and now they are a good bit too loose. That worked for me just fine today, since I am currently in the clutches of a terribly annoying cold. Who gets sick in the summer anyways! Most of my time lately has been pretending i’m a zombie, shuffling around the house, moaning for brains. My sinuses are so stuffed up, it feels like I could be zombified.

I can’t wrap my head around how many different names there are for overalls. I need to start keeping a list so effectively search for more, because my wardrobe certainly needs a few more of these.¬†So my hunt continues to find the perfect pair of overalls to replace these lovelies. Maybe I’ll pick up some pinafores along the way. Same idea and just as lovely.
