She leaned up against the big oak tree by the fence with her hands in the pockets of her overalls. The sun was beating down hard on the corn field, making mirages from which the faraway tractor came in and out of focus. There was nothing to do in all this heat. So she stayed in the shade to wait for cooler days, when she could go running wild up and down the rows with her bare feet.

i held the overalls in my arms, my possession every single one had been taken, stole, from right in front of me. I had no choice. This way the only thing i owned. He even took my heart.

Overalls, the typical getup of hillbillies around the world. These extended trousers commonly made of denim are rather out of fashion. Unfortunately. I would become a hillbilly just to wear overalls with no outside judgement.

It was covering me, suffocating my freedom. I could feel it sucking up to my body as the sun burned mercilessly. All of those around me, sufferin the same fate knew, what they symbolized. The overalls of labor.

She wore overall that summer
Caked and clogged with mud
Out at the pasture and deep in her heart
She wore overalls
To protect her
They gave her the ability to risk getting dirty
And reap the reward
Life and love above all

don’t waste your time with explanations people only here what they want to hear at same time , look over the moment when you will see behind then you will understand who does like you just being yourself :) , feel yourself and fly til you will see the bright side and smell the right path you did choose

Overalls were big in a part of my family. Uncle Charley always wore them. Ralph S., soo. My dad had a pair for doing heavy work. I often saw Grandpa Dude in them.

I wore them with one strap undone so I could look more like him when we went out searching for rocks under cover of night. You never batted an eye, you never flicked a snarky grin when I chose to be more masculine in the faded pink tutu you placed me in. And now that I’m me and you are you, I feel more like the child you needed.

There is an apple on the top of the fence.
Balancing for now, it tends to fall on the right-hand side. The other way lies madness, you once said.
You were wrong (but only the history books will know that).

When I was a kid I used to wear this one pair of overalls that had cherries all over them. I absolutely loved them. They were so cute and I wish I could still wear them today. I still see them in the stores but I’m not sure if I would look stuck in the past if I did wear them. Anyways, they remind me of my childhood a lot. And that makes me happy.

i went riding in my blue overalls with you. We were bike riding at the speed of sound, you in your cowboy hat and leather combat boots. We stopped by the lake and ran to the water, while we stumbled to take off our clothes to go into the water.

Overalls, overall what? Overall I know why I don’t know why you’re leaving me. I don’t know why that you think we’re over all this. I don’t know why you think it’s okay to leave me over all we’ve been through together. Overall I don’t know why, but I can’t live without you.
By Jamie on 07.08.2012
I’ve never liked the look of overalls. Perhaps because they suggest grunt work and lack of imagination. Perhaps they reveal a hidden snobbery in my life. However to put them on once in a while is fun like dress up was when I was little.
By DMC URL on 07.08.2012
i hate wearing over alls they are for lazy rednecks like my sister. and theyare always blue. and they ussually smell bad and are hand me downs.
By langdonl on 07.08.2012
what is overalls? is it the ugly looking one-piece kind of thing? I dont like it if thats the case. Only 13year old female bloggers waer those, and i think it might be because the get paid to wear them

Hands leave dirt-dust patterns across blue denim– chalk on navy chalkboard. He teaches in a deep, booming drawl and the children remember long afternoons sitting on the hay, ruby strawberries, and wise epithets.
By Hannah on 07.08.2012
I like my patched up overalls from 15 years ago. They’re faded and dirty and tight in the hips a little bit. But they make my heart feel comfy and I wish things were the same here as they are when I’m wearing my overalls. They’re all I have left from when he was here.
By Courtney on 07.08.2012

She stood in the middle of the corn field like she did on most days around this time. There’s something about a sunset being surrounded by so much green. She reached into the pocket of her overalls to pull out the squealing, squirming, snow white mouse and held it up towards the sun, so its head protected her eyes from the harmful sun.
By Katy W on 07.08.2012
I sort of like overalls. I probably could never wear them. I’d look stupid. But they’re sort of nice, I think. Why are they associated with farmers?
By rushtail on 07.08.2012
She thought she was too old to wear overalls, but there she was at the age of 12 wearing them. It was a hot New Orleans summer day. Too muggy to go outside and play, but she had a strong desire to climb a tree. Overalls were perfect for that.
By KaliAdia on 07.08.2012
Overalls are a most interesting clothing item. First of all, even the composition of the word is so remarkably simple and understandable. Plus, it’s a item that ranges across wardrobes of people from varying backgrounds – from dependable workman clothes to the cute little denim number on a Tokyo girl walking down Harajuku.

Most people associate Oklahoma with overalls and farmers, heat and country-twang. But from what Kate is telling me, Oklahoma hasn’t been known for that in years, and Tulsa hasn’t been known for the overalls in decades.
Eric wasn’t lying when he said it was a war zone.
My eyes are wide as I am huddled underneath a fallen beam in a decaying building. Voices, sirens, and guns echo in the cool morning air. My jacket isn’t enough to warm me as I shiver against Kate’s side. “Where is he?” Brook angrily hisses. “He should have been back by now. He might have been caught.”
“He’ll come,” Kate whispers. “Eric’s better then that.”
Nervously, I twitched by their side, my breath growing labored. “Why are we here?”
“To help you recall your bloody memory,” Brook hisses, “hush up, now.”
Suddenly, a hand is on my arm, turning me to face a pair of bright blue eyes. “We came for him,” Eric whispers.

Overalls. Childhood. The two are the same. Whether cut-offs or full-length, picture-perfect memories in those denim overalls.
By thetopshelf on 07.08.2012
Overalls are some kind of clothing. I don’t know all the names for articles of clothing. I probably should learn them sometime. Just compile a list of them and google them to find images, you know? That’s how us nerdy people learn stuff. Normal people just absorb these things like osmosis: clothing names, brand names, car names. Nerd people need to have these things laid in front of them, like a periodic table.

I haven’t worn overalls since I was a little kid. People tend to think it’s the uniform of Arkansas, though. Turns out we’re NOT all barefoot, pregnant, and wearing overalls. Who’da thunk?
By Heather on 07.08.2012
john deere, blue, striped, trains, grandpa, jordyn, barefoot, farmers, tractors, compound word, they go over your body, long pants, shorts, buttons, hooks, fasteners
By Felicity on 07.08.2012
i like overalls….actually..I really hate them. WHy? Bc I have to wear them at work and it’s hot as hell in those things. They do keep you clean, but overall.. they suck! See what I did there?
By fren on 07.08.2012
My sister wears blue jean overalls with one side unbuttoned. Pants rolled up unevenly and sparkly flats. On top she wears a white peasant shirt. This is how I remember her from middle school. She had braces then.
By mieko URL on 07.08.2012
it’is funny cz its OVER and ALL but it doesnt really cover everything
Barney slept with an old woman with it
^that was because he took it as a challenge
It isnt easily worn in India
It’s best in blue and in denim
By Anna on 07.08.2012
i wear overalls only when i am doing some cleaning work like cleaning the garage or the car. the overalls protect me from getting dirty. i have many types of overalls.
By Pras on 07.08.2012
what i wore in third grade. my best friend kelly had a pair with vegetables on them and i thought she was the coolest. when i see them i think of farmers in a field and country songs. wish i could pull them off. soft blue jean material. hard to pee in.
By courtney on 07.08.2012
I used to love overalls when I was a kid. I wanted to wear them every day. They are so comfy, yet individually. I like to think that I am unique, but when I was little, I just wanted to live my life.
By Rebecca on 07.08.2012
worn by people who work in industries such as factory work, mechanics, builders, plumbers, doctors etc to protect their clothing
