Wow. I was completely blown away to the response to last week’s inaugural Keeping It Real outfit post. Blown away.
I mean it’s a bit daunting putting up a photo of yourself in your normal gear – the stuff I get around in on a day-to-day basis. I’m not so daunted at the special occasion stuff because, like I said last week, I’ve usually done a fair bit of pre-planning for that stuff.
With my everyday outfits, I might plan or I might just throw on the first thing I see. It depends on my mood.
For this week’s Keeping It Real outfit post, I did plan. For
two three reasons:
1. I bought a new t-shirt with the groceries last week and hadn’t worn it yet so wanted to take it for an outing.
2. It was the first day back at school for my kids yesterday. In primary school EVERYONE – all 500 parents or so – walks their child/ren into the classroom, says hello to the teacher and takes embarrassing photos of their kids, who are by now wishing you’d just turn around and go home. And you would except it takes you about an hour to walk back to the car because it’s parked in the next suburb because there are NOT 500 car parks in the school grounds.
3. Oh, and did I mention … it’s STILL raining.
Here’s what I wore (just a warning … this outfit has been brought to you by the colour orange!):
Mix Apparel at Coles | NYDJ Australia | Adorne | Alterior Motif | Country Road | Napoleon Perdis DeVine Goddess Lipstick (Harmonia has been discontinued but I’m told Niki is worth a try for a sheer orange) | Benefit Cha Cha Tint
What are you wearing today? What are you up to today? If you have kids are they back at school? What do you wear for the drop off and pick up?
PS. Yesterday afternoon I blogged about my dream shoe-robes over at Justb. Come and have a look-see.
