Inspire me.

I am wearing a pear of bootcut jeans - George, because I happened to be in Asda when my 'old' jeans were falling down (thumbs up diet)
A yellow/mustard henley (a few buttons on front) ribbed long sleeve top - again, George (grabbed same time as jeans as charity shopped 80% of my wardrobe smile)
Black nursing bra - dunno by who @ Debenhams
sage knickers with abit of greying lace - Figleaves, but need to do a replacement pant shop!

Staying at home - DH has the car for work and have a freind over for DS (5) so looking after 4 little ones smile

SO come on, what are you wearing and what are you doing?

Straight leg dark denim jeans, M and S Autograph stripe grey and navy tunic, White Company pendant, Fitflop sneakers. About to put on my navy trench to go out as pouring.

Yesterday wore really grotty old baggy cut-off trousers and ancient top to go to shops, with hair messy (but not in a good way) and of course ran into friend I haven't seen in ages, who always looks good and was fresh from the hairdresser after a great cut and blow dry!!

i love love love* the way people mention brands on these threads


TattyDevine Thu 04-Aug-11 14:25:47

I look a fright. I am wearing white linen cargos with the turn up bit with the tabs that hold the turn up in place (bite me Cod) and a sort of long line hanky hem t shirt tunic thing and Birkenstocks blush

But I don't really give a toss, I'm bogging around the house tidying and doing a bit of half arsed decorating and its hot and muggy so ner.

Kay - just like to know what people are wearing, you can usally tell the style better by the brand etc. It's anot a "ooh, look at me in me George" wink , get ideas of other shops to try, if you ee certain brands crop up time and time again you think "oh, that seems worth a look".... it relevant smile

I managed to get into town ON MY OWN this morning (its week 5 of summer hols up here, ready to shoot myself). Wearing indigo skinnies, a nude vest and a cream lacy T shirt, stone coloured peep toe flatties. Not so warm here today. VERY successful shopping trip

Littlepumpkinpie Thu 04-Aug-11 14:46:06

I am cleaning so old faded cropped navy linen bottoms from Dotty P stripy coloured tshirt from M&S . No make up or jewellry and croc flip flops £10 from tk max they are my slippers. I will be changing later to take ds to Taekwondo though into skinnies and a flowery tunic make up and jewelry on cos I feel naked without it smile

Columbia999 Thu 04-Aug-11 14:48:54

I look lush today, I am wearing a pair of black baggy leggings which are ripped down one inside leg, and a very ancient Zandra Rhodes tee shirt that I got from a catalogue about 20 years ago. Good quality though, it still looks as good as new! No bra, and Fitflops.
I will smarten up when I go out later.

howabout Thu 04-Aug-11 14:55:47

I am wearing my new enormous maternity / nursing bra in pink and cream lace, knickers from the everdiminishing pile that fit, summer dress which I can no longer reach round the back of to do buttons up and cardi over top to hide said buttons. I did brave the bath today with my Molton Brown so although I haven't got round to sorting my hair out I smell lovely.

Nagini Thu 04-Aug-11 15:01:06

I am still in pyjamas.

But I hae gone back to bed, so that is entirely appropriate attire smile

We are not inspiring much are we? grin

Thehusbandsatcricketagain Thu 04-Aug-11 15:03:14

I look scarily frightening today as it's bucketing it down & the dc are making me play games for quality time all day so am currently wearing a pair of walking shorts (so comfy),an old vest top,a battered old cardi with my quite short hair scrapped off my face with elastics & clips,just hope no one important knocks or else may have to dial 999..............& am having a wee break from dc & games as am exhausted lol

TadlowDogIncident Thu 04-Aug-11 15:03:26

Slovenly. Ancient pair of boot-cut jeans (don't even know where they came from as the label has washed out), bare feet, manky old nursing bra (I am still feeding, this isn't totally random!) and Gap T-shirt that was nice but has been stretched by DS pulling at the neckline while feeding.

I'm working at home today.

aStarInStrangeways Thu 04-Aug-11 15:05:25

Grey cropped trackie bottoms and an ancient brown Primark tshirt grin Inspiring!

Helenagrace Thu 04-Aug-11 15:28:57

Dark grey linen trousers, green vest top (would probably be called pistachio in a colour chart) and toning green round neck cardigan, buttons partly done up to disguise muffin top . Pulled together with a green necklace. silver toe post sandals, although will need to change those when I go outside as it's STILL raining.

brookeslay Thu 04-Aug-11 15:51:12
