I wasn’t such a frequent joiner in-er at WW last month. The main reason for that is that sometimes I feel like a bit of a gimp, and I worry that anyone reading this might think I think I’m all that. I know I’m not, and in case you’re wondering this is what Wardrobe Wednesday means to me (from my first time joining in WW.):
..”it’s all about distilling your personal style and feeling good about yourself without feeling that you need to conform to whatever new trend has popped up this season. I think this is particularly important for Mums – because just because we may no longer work in an office and may get puked or pooped on doesn’t mean that we should have to give up style.”
Despite sometimes feeling like a gimp, I have really been enjoying WW – it’s made me think a bit about what I wear and made me look through my wardrobe and wear things in different ways – even remix some of my old office clothes into my wardrobe.
Cape Coat- Ezibuy (gift), Dress/tunic- Principals, tights and slip- I can’t remember (?), grey merino wrap – very old from Glassons, red leather gloves – redcurrent, boots – overland (gift), cuff bracelet – thrifted.
Gosh, when I write it all down I realise I am wearing a lot of different items today – well I guess that comes with layering. Layering is great in the Hawkes Bay as it can be crisp and frosty especially in the morning and evening and beautifully sunny during the day.
I also now realise that both the boots and coat are both birthday gifts (on different years) from my very generous Mum. It’s actually by birthday on Friday. A significant number … something starting in 3 and ending in 0!
The item I plan to ‘remix’ this month is the Principals dress/ tunic. I plan to go hard because I REALLY want to win this month’s awesome prize of an $80 Sailor Spy voucher!!!
And while we’re on the topic of ‘remixing’ check out this AWESOME video where a woman wore 1 dress for a whole year! – I don’t think I could pull off all of those looks, but it’s very inspiring nonetheless!
