Mum Mode: Real mums wear sweats

Some days when it’s super cold and dark out, you just do your colourful best to keep warm, then get your offspring off to school.

It’s like “yes it’s going to be a sweatshirt, sweat pants and sneakers” kind of day. BUT make it fun!

Top from Adidas. Cosy fleece-lined trousers are The North Face. Sneakers are Reebok. And that bright blue bag that holds all kinds of mum crap – Marc by Marc Jacob’s.

Mum Mode: Jeans & Laundry

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.
