For all you lovers of the bib overall, bibfessor, has rallied a movement around the world, declaring today, November 20th, the very first International Overalls Day!
In honor of this glorious day, I thought I’d show you that I am still sporting my oldest, rattiest, paint splattered overalls. I just cannot give them up. They are so easy to throw on, could not be more comfortable, and at this point, are truly broken in.
You can see, I have yet to fix my broken buckles and misshapen hardware. Maybe today in honor of International Overalls Day, I will treat my overalls to some new hardware! As you may recall, I did purchase some new overalls earlier this year, but I must admit, I’ve worn them rarely. The material is soft and they come with some great features like removable knee pads and lots of pockets, but they are just not broken in enough to feel really comfortable. They also shrunk a lot in the length when I washed them, so now will have to remedy that. For now, I keep throwing them in the wash every time I do laundry, in hopes that some day I can add them to my rotation.
Whether you paint, garden, farm or just love living in your overalls, I wish all my overall brother and sisters out there a very happy International Overalls Day!
Oh btw, these pictures were taken in my own kitchen. The stencil used on the wall is from the Stencil Library, Sticky Weed.
