Although I think I do a pretty good of reworking what I have in my wardrobe, I have been trying to look deeper to re-hash outfits and garments that you may have seen in the past. After reading Vix's recent post the other day and seeing how she can work and rework a vintage maxi and make it look sublime each time, there is really no excuse for the rest of us right?
So with our new routines here starting last week, it now means I'm a kindy mum. It was a rather interesting experience from my mummy fashion style perspective, I ain't like everyone else's mum. It's apparent that plain shorts with plain singlets and black, oh and thongs (flip flops) are a mummy's uniform here at least for summer. I'm glad I didn't get the uniform memo because I think I would have revolted. These are just two ensembles I put together last week for kindy run and getting out and about afterwards. In my mind they aren't terribly out there, or all that different but lets just say I definitely stood out. But to heck with it I don't care what others think.
Look, if you want it's cool with me.
You might remember this handmade vintage mini dress from a style post not long back. So in comparison I thought I'd tame it down with some shorts and flats with a lot of bending and crouching on kindy run to do.
Shorts - are actually high waisted and were a Christmas gift two years ago
Large cane clutch - op shopped
Necklace and bangles - op shopped, silver bangle is an old one that was gifted to me last week
As for this outfit, black and white are not a normal or in the vicinity of a favorite color combination for me but I wanted to try clashing polka dots and stripes together.
Singlet - cheap retail buy as it's a breastfeeding singlet and I need that ease sometimes
Belt - hand me down
Dark Demin Vest - Op shopped
Wedges - Op shopped
Brooch - Op shopped
Ok so I wore a mummy singlet and it did include black, but this is still by a far cry dressed up in compassion to the other mums on kindy run. Besides I think I got the polka dots with stripes sorted alright with this outfit and combination.
