Never thought it’d get this cold in Southern California and I love being able to layer my outfits. This is probably the rainiest winter I’ve experienced since I moved to the US about 10 years ago. But everything is green and we love it! I know that isn’t the case for those further north of us and it has gotten pretty bad.
Coat from RRejina Pyo, DKNY hoodie dress, Longchamp bag and Jeffrey Campbell shoes.
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…
I’m loving this new H&M striped jersey top that I got recently. Literally wearing it a lot because it’s so versatile! So soft, so stretchy and so affordable! I recommend it to anyone who asks! I mean USD12.99, come on!
Also, these are my reading glasses. Completely useless for anything else and I get a headache when I try to walk around in them. I spend half the time peering out of the top when I’m wearing them. I also have a pair of driving glasses for long distance. I like them enough but I’m getting bifocals next. 2 pairs of glasses are just one too many.
