But now here I am! (I used to be indecisisve, but now I’m not so sure!)
Sorry – could not resist that one. Actually I think BigMama was keen for us to share the contents of our wardrobes, especially what we “live” in every day.
I should be packing for our church weekend away, and once I had most of my clean and wearable clothes already hauled out, I decided to share with you – I promise it won’t hurt TOO much.
As you can see, I tend to live in t-shirts and jeans (did not show the jeans, but I tend to like Long & Lean from Gap (yes – we have Gap, and Disney Store and a whole lot more, but that is another blog post for another day), and I also buy jeans in Next like these and any where that does Petite/Ankle length (also known as short/stumpy – but I am not bitter)
My tshirts may be long or short sleeves, or somewhere in between. If this was winter they would mostly be black, brown, purple and …oh yes….more black. However because spring has allegedly sprung, the colours of the t-shirts are brightening up. I also like tops that are not too straight/tight – to allow for some tummy-hiding, and really like it if the top can be tied behind, and I feel this flatters my thinner bits, without over-exposing my less-thin bits.
You won’t find any round necks in my wardrobe – they are all scooped or v-neck, and frequently I do the layering thing of having white vest tops under ( I believe these may be called tank tops across the ocean). You will also rarely find skirts, and WILL NEVER find anything yellow! (I think I have a phobia to yellow clothes).
Most of my basic t-shirts come from Next, New Look, Dunnes, Primark and maybe even Marks & Spencers (Per Una). I also like Wallis or Principles, but they would tend to be a bit more co-ordinated outfits if you know what I mean!
I bought these two items in Fat Face earlier in the year while over in Bristol. I am not remotely sporty or trendy, and they probably have to hide their horror when I visit their store full of the young and the beautiful, but I like their clothes enough to risk it.
Here are some zipped hoody things which I tend to layer on top if I am cold (frequently)
As you can see, I have them in a wide range of colours – this is only a selection.
Next on to footwear – which I basically wear these are trainers from September to May
I recently bought these in anticipation of some sun – I wore an almost identical pair of these last summer (which were Skechers – these aren’t).
If it is a slighter smarter occasion than the school run or the park, I may accessorise with some jewelery.
Here are a few “dressy” items – which I rarely wear, but like to look at occasionally to remind myself there is life beyond my little one of house and kids. That some people GO OUT AFTER DARK, and allegedly WITHOUT KIDS! OK – I am exaggerating, I do get out, we have some lovely babysitters (you know who you are) but as I no longer work outside the home – my work clothes are the same as my home clothes/weekend clothes/holiday clothes.
These have been worn to more formal occasions, and the second one I wore to my 40th birthday party (which was not at all formal!)
Finally some silly shoes that hurt like crazy, stay on with a wing and a prayer – but they look good, and as long as I don’t have to actually take steps with them, they aren’t a problem….really!
So thats me and my wardrobe. Enjoy the Fashion Fiesta, and please leave a comment, and even better, come back soon.
Off to finish packing for the church weekend.
Take care until next time.
