Fashion (Turn to the left)

Being a yummy mummy takes work. Now spring is upon us I am up making extra effort to update my look for the new season. These are my current fashion highlights:-

fashion bubble

1) Today I am wearing a hat. It looks suspiciously like a baby wipe, but my stylist insists it is a hat, and as I know very little about whats hot in the world of millinery who am I to argue. Did I mention my stylist is 19 months old?!?  The mood this headwear creates is both modern, and clean. It is so fetching I am planning a catwalk launch for the full ‘Wet Wipe’ collection.

2) The ‘IT’ bag has been replaced by the ‘Full Of Shit’ bag. At last count containing- 2 half eaten crackers, some bubbles, tissues, something sticky and unidentifiable, several small plastic toys, a stirring stick from Costa that wasn’t allowed to go in the bin, a clean nappy, a dirty nappy, a broken eyeliner, an empty purse because children steal ALL your disposable income and a lip balm with sand stuck to it.

3) Dirty. I am a dirty girl. That sounds like something Rhianna would sing. But I doubt she would mean it in the smeared with snot, cake, marmite and general grime way that I do. Grime. Apparently that’s a musical movement. I am old, for me it is something Kim and Aggy try to wipe off. They would need a lot of lemon juice solution to get my clothes clean.

4) ‘Ill-Fitting’ is the keyword this spring. I am neither big enough for my maternity wardrobe, nor small enough for my pre-Syd clothes. He is 18 months, the baby weight excuse is wearing thin. Unlike me.

5) Dated or not. Thank god the grunge look is apparently back in fashion. I am still wearing Doc Martens, scruffy tees and holey, over sized jumpers from the first time. Find your look and stick with it, once at least every 5 years you will be totally hip as the fashion wheel revolves back around to your stop.

How are you preparing for the new season?

    Ha ha, this did make me laugh! I have written a post (waiting for the unveiling on Friday) all about how I am sooo not hip…as reminded continually by my daughters *sigh*

      Ah, the view of yourself through the eyes of a teenaged daughter is never kind!

    How could you post that without a picture for guidance! My 10yo has prepared me for the new season with green face glitter, sapphire eye shadow, magenta lip gloss and orange powder. I definitely stand out from the crowd at the corner Co-Op.
