Dear god, I think I may have finally lost the plot.
So I'm perusing the DM sidebar of shame that's a crime in itself with a cup of tea after the school run and I come across the horrors of Liz Jones in a pair of dungarees and a cowboy hat when I catch myself quite liking the idea of a pair for the summer
I think they could look quite nice with a fitted white t shirt
I have a guilty penchant for dungarees . But I don't think they will ever be stylish!
I had a pair in dark blue chunky cord when I was 21 and working in a car parts factory. I used to wear them with a tight little t-shirt and my hair in plaits it absolutely worked at that age and in that situation and I stand by that!
I also love dungarees (apart from when i was pg) and bought a similar pair a couple of years ago which i wear at the wend (if i know i wont be seeing anyone special!) also with white tshirt and messy hair.
I'm not sure why dungarees fascinate me so much actually!
I'm also doing the basket dance with dungarees. I would love to know how you get on, Freddie. I think dungarees are having a fashion moment again- there's a few articles about it and its a progression from the playsuit. I think they have to have taped ankles though to look really of the moment as opposed to Fergie in the 80s! Anyway I am not sure as I am size 14 and curvy...
I have been secretly longing to recreate this look, but I too am thunderous of thigh, and somehow I don't think I'd look quite as polished as the lovely Tiffany as I tottered through the school run in the sort of full-on monsoon we have been experiencing lately
I quite like Tiffany's look! In my head, that's what I'll look like, although I'm several years longer in the tooth and spend my time refereeing fights between my 7 and 11 year olds, walking the dog and helping at school - I suspect I'm going to look ridiculous
Am now on the hunt for a slightly more fitted pair, less baggy in the bum and more tapered in the leg
