Today I’m sharing a bit of a miracle with you… After about 18 months of searching I’ve finally found some dungarees that fit me *high five*!
The problem I have when looking for all-in-ones is that I’m taller than average. I’m 5’10 so being a lanky sort doesn’t really help when searching for dungarees.
As you know, I’m also a bit of a fusspot too and there has been other “tall” dungarees that I’ve spotted, but they’ve either had an unflattering pinafore/bib part, or been too clown like or the wrong, flimsy kind of fabric.
You see I’m no rake so I need to accommodate and flatter my curves too.
Now this outfit, and especially these dungarees, will be getting worn a lot. I love the fact you can dress them up or down.
I’m wearing them here with a red blouse, which can be daywear but it’s probably something I’d personally wear in the evening (or a lunch date with the Mr, which is exactly what we were doing) with a necklace underneath the collar. Both the blouse and the dungarees are from Long Tall Sally and I am pleased not to feel like an orangutan in this blouse- the sleeves are actually long enough for a change!And as for the dungarees I’ve even had to ROLL THEM UP!!
I’m really still in shock about this, they are technically too long… This has never happened to me. I’m able to have turn ups which is a look I would’ve gone for anyway, but the turn ups aren’t around my calves.
It’s safe to say I’m impressed with these dungarees. The fabric is sturdy but with a small amount of give and the body is long enough so I can sit down without feeling uncomfortable (you know what I mean, right!?). The straps are adjustable and they are black, whats not to love?
