an ode to dungarees – what we wore

ode to dungarees

Oh I do love a pair of dungarees. I find them so comfy and they go with absolutely anything, which means I end up wearing them lots. I always feel ‘good’ in my dungarees, plus they have the added bonus of having lots of pockets –  I’m a big fan of pockets.

I bought my first pair nearly 4 years ago whilst pregnant with Bailey; a vintage denim pair from a shop in Brighton. I altered them and made them bump friendly – I put expandable bits in at the sides, so I could wear them all the way up to full term.

Four years later and my love affair hasn’t wavered, so I decided it was time for another pair. This lovely deep indigo cotton denim pair are from Toast, and are a softer wear than some denim. I think I will be wearing them lots this summer.

Now, I have a pair to wear whilst the other dungarees get a much needed wash. Toddlers do like to wipe stuff on you. Bailey quite often looks at her little sticky, mucky hand, and then wipes it on my leg – guess that’s love for you.

      Thanks Alison 🙂

  • these are great. I used to love dungarees but haven’t owned any since I was in my teens. These look like a really nice grownup version!

      Thanks Katie 🙂 Well, there are lots about at the moment for you to choose between should you fancy trying dungarees again. They really are my favourite thing to wear 🙂

  • I’m a big fan of your dungarees Melanie! I was admiring them when we met the other day and thinking how lovely they looked – and comfy too (my most important criteria these days!). I do love a good pocket too. Will have to investigate those Toast ones – my jeans are about to give up the ghost…. xxx
