I sincerely love that I’ll be turning 30 this year. I’m going to be 30 flirty and thriving! Also it means that trends that cycled in and out like 5-6 years ago are cycling back in! One trend I’ve been noticing for fall is overalls.

I fully support this trend. Unfortunately there is NO WAY I’m participating in it. Overalls simply do not look good with GIGANTIC boobs, or any extra weight at all really.

Luckily last time this trend kind of cycled in I was thin enough to enjoy it! Oh you want to see pictures?! OK! They’re from when I backpacked China after graduating from college.

Here I am with my bag all packed ready to head to the airport.

And here I am blending in with the locals! Obviously I didn’t pack a hairdryer?

Haha, I bet I still have those somewhere! If you’re like, a size 4 come and grab them! You’ll just have to go digging in my shed for them…

Are you gonna rock the overalls? My sister was telling me that overalls were going to be her post-birth staple (she’s due in 3 weeks!). I tried to tell her that I really don’t think they’re going to go well with her nursing boobs, but I’ve been wrong before. Usually not about boobs though.

Either way, check out my tips and see if you agree.


Love you all!

    I can’t do overalls either. Big hips, wonder thighs, nursing boobs. On second thought…

  2. I’m thinking we could start a nursing boob/overall revolution. Just think of the easy access!

  3. i wanted to rock the overalls, but yeah, the boob thing made it look like a hot mess. it is such a shame for nursing mamas, because as emily said, such easy access.

  4. I’m so glad you posted this, because I’ve been hanging on to my high school overalls for, like, 15 years! 😉

    PS–What a cutie pie you were! You look like you were 14!

    I’m really thinking the trend will work. I have HUGE boobs , but I dare to rock a lot of things they say us Chesty Morgans and Boobie McGees shouldn’t wear, and I look great in them. So I’m going to try this trend and see if it works out. I’m eyeing a floral one on the Asos website in the curve section. And a gray cotton one. Let’s see how it works out

  6. I love the overalls!! I just bought a pair a couple of months ago after searching for two years. First time I’ve been grateful for little boobs! :o)

  7. Yeah, you’re right…. all those models have NO boobs.

    I was just thinking about overalls the other day. Wondering when they would come back around. They were my fav in college whenI was pregnant with my first (15 yrs ago) and post preg too. Wish I hadn’t gotten rid of them!
