In summary:
It’s not very easy to go to the bathroom in shortalls. I mean, there are no buttons in
the crotch area for easy access like a onesie. Let’s just say, next time, 4 cups of coffee will
not be ingested prior to putting on this number. Something to consider when purchasing
and wearing overalls, rompers and jumpsuits. I didn’t get the memo, but consider this yours.
However, if there was ever a fashion sacrifice to be made, I can at least stand by this one.

The shortalls are an Ann Taylor piece from the early 90′s (per the Vintage Fashion Guild, label
archival site) that I bought last month. Had no idea how to style it, except that at $3 it was
a must, especially because of the color. You all know how nutty I am about coral. I was last
seen wearing this bright hue for a day at the Zoo! The criss-cross detail in the back is what
had me at “Hello”. Isn’t it great?

This was a challenging look to style, so I open the discussion up to you. How should I wear
the shortalls again and would you sport this look for work/meeting? Hope your week is shaping
up to be a productive one. Mine is busy as all get-out!

just a hint of Nautical!

Son - C - Backyard - Picking Up Shoes
When C started picking up my shoes, saying, “Come, Mommy. Ready to Go!” I knew it was
time to stop with the outfit photos. For an outing at the park, I changed into braided
metallic flat sandals
and threw on a tan cardi (see previous posts).
