I Was Born To Wear Dungarees

32 Comments

^^ Dungarees were my favorite clothes when I was a little girl and they still are now! Did you know that the history of dungarees goes back to the 17th century? Long time ago, people knew what's right & comfy, hm? The type of a fabric that the first dungarees came from, was called "dungri" and it was made in India. It was later exported to the United Kingdom as work clothes. Who knew it's going to become a fashionable thing one day!? Now, in 21st century, we are bringing it back to life, after the big boom in 80's and 90' when our parents were rocking it! Green lights for dungarees! Always and forever! I was not even planning on shopping (I swear!) when I went to TJ Maxx to just check out what's new as I often do. But when I saw this pair of dungarees in my size for just $9.99, I couldn't just let it go. Later I found them on the original Hollister website for much more and they don't even sell them anymore. 

Dungarees - Hollister, white top - Styles For Less, red hand bag - Sinsay, heart necklace - Claire's, sunnies - Giant Vintage, shoes - a gift from my friend Aja - it's a traditional pair of Czech shoes (hipster-ish type - lol).

I love TJ Maxx almost as much as thrift stores now. Ha! I really like the summer-ish, aztec boho pattern and I love wearing it with either just a plain white top or another solid color shirt. Dungarees, to me, are just such a comfortable, nice & stylish piece to wear! I'm glad they are still "in" and come in different styles every season. Do you personally like dungarees? For what occasion do you wear them? I decided for this outfit on a lazy Saturday afternoon when I went for a lunch and to the mall.

You lucky girl-only for 10$? They look amazing and the print on it is so cute. I fell in love. I have a pair of dungarees but they're denim shorts and I wear them all the time. Great outfit and the pictures are amazing. Great post.
