Dungarees. *shiver*

Why am I going here? I mean apart from a cool pink pair I had when I was a kid I have not returned to this – not flattering for you at ALL – item of clothing, well…apart from a VERY misjudged pair when I was heavily pregnant, but your brain is not your own during that time so I take no responsibility for that.

However, I saw this picture…


Kate Bosworth, looking hot. So I thought, hang on, maybe she’s on to something. Immediately the internet search began for a cool pair of dungarees…not as easy as you might think my friends. It was a long process to find these 7 babies coming your way and actually I am only full on in love with one of them, but, options.

First up, ASOS



Flared dark ones are €65.75 and ripped €49.30. The dark ones are interesting, I like the pockets and the colour but the halter neck business freaks me out a little. The ripped ones are cool enough but more hanging out at home while doing jigsaws with a 4 year old. NOT my favourite thing to do and NOT the vibe I’m going for. But, never fear there’s more…

Next up is Pull & Bear and these come in at £35.99 online

Again cute but homely or holiday-ey (ahem) but not hot.

Then there’s Zara, ah Zara


Who always deliver, but EVEN this time, I’m not 100% happy with what they have on offer for my diehard denim search. These ones are €49.95.

Before I reveal my pick and what I will be purchasing to do the Kate thing. Check out these black numbers…for a change up

£48 @ Topshop (all these stg prices are from online so different slightly in shops) and


£29.99 @ H&M.

I like whats going on here actually, but I must stick to my project and get the blue denim. So here it is my final choice…

Marks & Spencers! the winner! the eye of the tiger! the hot tamli! the…you get the picture

CUTE, right? and ONLY €36, I am pure impressed.

So, to finish off my look I am going for a plain white vest in Penneys, you know the ones, they are like €2.50-€3, lovely.

The bag I reckon has to be this because it is awesome.

Nice. €19.18 @ Warehouse for ASOS. Nearly done.

Now the shoes….a slight conundrum here. Wedges or flats. I say flats, dungarees demand it. Go for these ones

They are the shit. And very versatile for other outfits. Oh yeah, I’m always thinking ahead. €49.95 @ Zara

Or you could get these ones…

And there you are, I am dungarees-a-go-go.

Move over Kate.
