An ode to dungarees

I hadn't laid my eyes on you since I was 6-years-old,
and after all these years, I wondered if I could be so bold,
to press 'proceed to checkout' on that Topshop site,
and at 2am while procrastinating, I thought I just might.

Breton stripe, lace crop tops and white tees,
I thought of all the things I could pair with thee,
Summertime frolics, drunken nights that were reckless,
All the possibilities, well, they were endless.

Comfort and effortless style, you're the whole deal,
And perfect for when I wake up late to meet friends for a meal.
You are perfect for occasions of all kinds,
Constantly making up new combinations in my mind.

But it wasn't enough, I started trying on more versions of you,
And before I knew it, I had bought another you in a different hue.
You're perfect in every form, and even as a skirt,
I'd forgotten about other clothes, what even is a shirt?

From babysitting to bars, from day to night,
I couldn't stop buckling up those straps, try as I might.
Long, short, denim, black,
I've fallen in love with you, and I can't go back.
