Having a Moment: Shortalls

I’ve been calling these overalls ‘shorter-alls’ turns out I am wrong. This was a shock to me as well, as I’m never wrong about words that I make up. These overalls are technically called — and I do mean the technical term here — Shortalls. How they went from overalls to shortalls instead of SHORTERALLS is beyond me. Missed opportunity in my book. And also I’m still going to call them shorteralls.

So I tried on this pair of shorteralls at Old Navy a few weeks ago on IG stories and you guys loved them! I had SO many questions about fit, where they were from, etc. Of course, if you remember, at the time, I’d tried them on over my yoga pants and sports bra because I had Gemma with me and our time is limited in a fitting room. Mama’s got to do what mama’s got to do. It was A LOOK for sure, but I will say this outfit with my ruffle sleeve Madewell sweater is 100% better. Although if you want to rock a short pair of overalls over a sports bra and yoga pants, then you do you, girl.

You can find my Old Navy shortalls here!

I’m really trying to balance my love of Madewell these days. Lord knows I could buy the whole store if he gave me enough cash. But I’ve been trying my best to not even look at their website or go into the store, but you know how Nordstrom carries the linewelllllll. Let’s just say I just HAD to pick up this ruffle sleeve sweater, ok? I HAD TO. The situation was very nuanced and I just can’t go into details. Just know it was a dire situation that this sweater had to come home with me. 😉

Editor's Notes:

Overalls fit true to size! They are adjustable via the straps so you can make them longer like I did if you’re a bit taller! If you are over 5’9″ I’d think about sizing up just for length if you don’t want them to be shorty-shorts. The sweater fits true to size, albeit a little bit cropped! Stay true to size, though.

    Gosh, who knew Old Navy/Gap was so good at overalls? I am currently wearing a full-length pair I bought last fall! I was originally on a search for black overalls, and I bought the denim when they were out of my size in black. Later I got my hands on the black pair, but the denim turned out to be my favorite!

    Last year they were called “slouch” and the denim was a light wash, but these relaxed medium indigo ones look like the same thing. https://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=256628002&vid=1&locale=en_US&kwid=1&sem=false&sdkw=relaxed-denim-overalls-P256628&sdReferer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.gap.com%2Fproducts%2Fdenim-overalls.jsp

    They’re more classic-style overalls (no cutesy criss-cross straps). They’re also cropped, but my experience of getting tall (I’m only 5’6″) to make them full length did not work out because the torso was waaaay too long. But I love love love them. Particularly they quickly became my “game night overalls” because they are perfect for lounging with friends playing boardgames, eating popcorn, etc. Comfy in Arizona summers and cute in winter with a sweater too! And people LOVE THEM. They sold out SO fast last year — I had to wait for someone to return the black ones I think, to get my size back in stock.
