Working in the garden has made me contemplate the clothing item that I have never even considered an option over the age of 5…bib overalls. I have found my self saying “I’m country, but not that county” more and more these days. What has brought about this new possibility is my back/butt area falling out the back of my pants every time I bend over to pull a weed or plant a seed, I spend more time doing the pull your pants up dance than getting work done. When I come in the belt loops on the side or muddy and brown, just another sign that overall might not be out of the realm of work clothes.
I really never understood overalls, other than children and women in certain types of magazines geared towards men, does the world really need overalls? Yes, it seems we do. The part of me who lived in NY and LA, drank top shelf booze and enjoyed tasting menus, is screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Butt (get it…butt) the part of me that hangs out when I am working in the yard says yes please. I am not even sure what to do next, go to TSC and get bibs or keep fighting it, and holding on to that bit if city still left in me.
