Love my Marimekko x Uniqlo dress. I actually have 3 different prints. I would buy them all if they made more! It’s the right length for someone 5’ tall and comes almost to the ankle. The flared design hides weird body shapes and I absolutely want pockets in every single thing I wear.
I rotate my bags pretty often but this yellow Longchamp is going to stay for a couple more weeks. For the foreseeable future, it holds everything I need – keys, wallet, phone, makeup pouch, spare diaper, wipes and snacks for my kid…
I do at least 2 loads of laundry a week. Most times more. There are only 3 of us living in this house! I try to minimize the number of items I personally need washing by wearing them more than once – like jeans. I wear them at least 2-3 times before I toss them in the wash. In my teens, I could live and sleep in them for up to a week.
No lies here – this pair has been worn 3 times this week. I think they’re “still fresh”. They go in the wash immediately if it has been raining or if I’ve gone somewhere unsanitary though.
My black and white top is Marimekko x Uniqlo and I love my Dr Martens purple strappy platforms.
We chose to send Alastair to a school almost 20miles away from where we live so I have to leave by 7:15am to get there in time.
My everyday scarf of the moment is from Kate Spade and that’s my Mum-bag – a customized Kipling that fits all kind of junk including a nappy and a floor mat for Alastair because most places have no facilities for toileting a quadriplegic who can’t fit on a baby change table.
I own a large number of black t-shirts with the logo of different bands (mostly rock bands I grew up with). They’re comfy and comforting. There’s a lot of nostalgia that comes along with that.
On the day I wore this, Tom dressed Alastair in a Metallica sweatshirt and Levi’s for school. Enter Sandman is my hearing-impaired 7 year-old’s favourite song at the moment. He loves all iterations – the actual song, the music video, YouTube covers by little kids etc. I would love to know what the synthesized version of this song sounds through his cochlear implant because he doesn’t hear like we do.
So band t-shirts and jeans is an ongoing mother and son sartorial choice. In my opinion, it’s like our uniform!
I love my Rebecca Minkoff fluffy brown jacket with the asymmetrical zipper here. You could do the entire rocker ensemble with a moto jacket of some kind but it’s a cold day. 5degC! Soft and fluffy is the way to go – especially when you’re leaving the for school at 7:15am…
