  1. I love the last image!! The sink she's standing at is the same kind of sink that we had in our weird middle school (it was round and had no windows or walls). Heh awesome.

  2. julie, we used to have one very similar to that in a high school we would use for some of our classes. only the sprayer thing was broken on one of them and if you didn't know which one, it squirted you in the eyes. ;)

  3. I love these! I have been contemplating the work-overall look lately, but I'm afraid it'd look silly on me. Still, I find these looks so fun! :)

  4. I especially like the one where she's retrieving eggs.

  5. Really like the last pair of overall pants. If you could combine the sexy high waist with long pant legs I'd be right there for some over alls. When I was in 6th grade I'd transitioned out of my tight wearing stage, but still refused to wear jeans, so wore a different shade/material of over-alls every day. Loved them.

  6. Yes! This is the look I was going for the other day! Land Girl/factory girl chic. Awesome!

  7. Oh my goodness. I love how those women brought so much femininity to whatever they were doing. What great inspiration! Thanks for sharing it.
