Bib Overalls Then & Now

Throwback Thursdays have never really been my thing. I would be lying if I said I never took part in it, I have a hell of a time coming up with catchy Instagram captions. Just head on over to my Instagram account sensiblechaos and see for yourself, there are some doozy’s!!  Are there classes on how to be clever on Instagram? Please if there are let me know I need help, desperately.

But in honor of this Thursday activity I would like to throw it back to 1999 and that time I got my Senior Pictures taken. Don’t let the killer short hair and overly tweezed eyebrows fool you, this is really me!!



This is, in fact, photographic evidence that I do love bib overalls. I chose to cement this love in a picture forever and ever for anyone’s viewing pleasure! If you want to see the real thing just head on over to my mom’s house and take a peek in her dining room, it’s still hanging there. While you are there, ask her to make some sloppy joe’s, they are killer. She may even spoil you with homemade mac n’ cheese. What was I talking about? Right my love for bibs!!!! Had I known then what I know now I would have NEVER stopped wearing them. Why they ever went out of style, the world may never know, but I am beyond excited that they are back. Bibs allow so much more room for activities, um er, I mean eating..wait maybe that’s not it either, whatever did I mention they are awesome?!

I have been on the hunt for a pair of bibs for a while now, unfortunately said bibs in my senior picture are no longer in my possession (stupid me).

I combed the internet far and wide looking for the perfect pair of bibs. I even hit up the local Orscheln Farm and Home to see if I could “jazz” up a pair of Key’s. That didn’t work out so well, I’m not sure McCook is ready for bedazzled Key overalls yet.

After a lot of looking, and returning, and crying, I finally found The PERFECT PAIR!!! They are from   Urban Outfitters, the brand is BDG, and I am telling you to GET A PAIR! They are so incredibly comfortable and I am going to wear the crap out of them this spring and summer. If you aren’t into the distressed look, no worries they have a huge selection of overalls (even vintage Tommy Hilfiger) and I am more than confident you will find YOUR perfect pair.

I went pretty simple with completing my overall look (pun 100% intended), a simple cropped tank top from Express, and new Birkenstocks that recently joined my shoe family. Have I ever mention I have a bit of a problem when it comes to shoes? You know that show 19 Kids and Counting? Well I am like 75 and counting, just with shoes, not kids, because 75 kids would be a lot…

So I hope everyone has a fabulous day before Friday!!! I encourage you to throw it on back!!!!!!!!!! Get it, throw it on back to Thursday… uggg I just can’t with the catchy phrases.
