overalls 4 lyfe

I bought these overalls from Glassons under the pretence of needing a costume for a 90s themed party. But let’s be honest, I just really really really wanted a pair of proper overalls after wearing my denim overall dress to death. I’ve been loving kicking around in these overalls on weekends. I even wore them out one Saturday night to dinner teamed with a leather jacket. Cue “oh no she di’ints”. Oh yes, yes I did. I hereby pledge my allegiance to the school of overalls.

Overalls: Glassons (similar here and here)
Shoes: The Horse (similar colour here and similar style here
T-shirt: probably Dotti, I cut the itchy tags off long ago
Scent: I’m not really wearing it but if it was the 90s it would have been Tommy Girl haha




The Horse have introduced a citrus patent version of these “Beverly” shoes for summer and I’m so tempted by them. It’s okay to have the same shoe in different colours, right?

  1. Totally okay to double up on shoes. I Had a 90's lunch the other day, out came the overalls, surprisingly they fit, they are now never going back to the back of my closet!

    I love overalls too! Maybe not the trousers version on me, but I can't get enough of my shorts overalls and I've been eyeing pinafores for weeks..! You should check on goldenponies as well, she has similar leather oxfords in any color you want!

      Love a good denim pinafore – they're perfect for summer. I'm also on the hunt for short overalls too. Will definitely check out goldenponies. Thanks for the tip!

      I am addicted to them! Dreading when summer hits and I'll have to shelve them but I'm sure a pair of short overalls will take their place haha

    You look awesome, I love them! I remember trying on overalls excitedly when they came on a couple of years ago and feeling so upset when I looked terrible in them haha. I haven't gone near overalls since, maybe it's time to try them again.

      I tried on quite a few pairs before I settled on these ones. Some of them were just blah so I think it's just about finding the right cut and design. I like that these ones are fairly fitted through the leg so they're just that bit sleeker and more grown up than the baggy overalls I used to wear as a kid.

    I think they're great! We call the dungarees here, not actually sure why though as "overalls" has it all covered. They look top notch

    when you have felt the joy and ability to breathe all the way down wearing overalls, nothing can keep you away from wearing them more or less all the time, they are simply the best thing to wear, myself wearing them every day for business, leisure, parties etc. overall greetings from Niels
