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.
Mini dress - op shopped
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
Shoes - hand me downs
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.
Skirt - gifted by the sweet Nelly who also has Vintage Wishes
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.
