Suspenders and overalls have never really been on my “must have” radar for fashion. When I see them, I think of farmers, ‘70s game show hosts, and power players like stockbrokers. No offense to any of these groups. But even when I was pregnant, I denied the urge to break out a giant pair of men’s overalls to keep my bloated belly contained. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. The time my husband came down the stairs wearing suspenders with his dress shirt, I quietly saved him by sending him back upstairs for a belt instead.
As it turns out, overalls and suspenders can be cool. And, in the case of this adorable little footie overall, they can even keep someone warm. Italy’s Album di Famiglia has created the perfect blend of cozy cotton and can’t-stop-touching-it-soft angora for a light but toasty warm baby overall. The go-with-anything gray color is a little winter cloud of cuteness. As your little one settles his or her tiny toes into the footies, delicate suspender-like straps keep even the wiggliest of babies in an envelope of warmth.
The next time you settle in front of nighttime TV for a good dose of “Let’s Make a Deal,” or when you buy a carton of eggs or stash away some cash for the little one’s college future, think of it this way…now you’re involved in something fun, something tasty, something good, and apparently something fashionable.
