Actually I should just rename this post ‘What I Wear…All The Time’.
I quite like seeing my favourite bloggers and what they wear. I feel like I get to know the person better when I see photos of them and it’s great to ‘meet’ the person who is usually behind the camera.
So this is me in my Mummy uniform – jeans,a simple top, and flats.I couldn’t even tell you the last time I wore heels.
You can probably tell from the look on my face that I’m not overly comfortable in front of the camera. And I’m squinting from a quick burst of sun that came out during my little photo shoot this morning.
The outfit – an oversized tee from Seed Femme, three-quarter jeans from Esprit and Converse runners.That is the sort of thing you’ll find me in most days – super practical and easy while running about after the kids. I don’t wear much jewellery – just small white gold and diamond studs, my engagement and wedding rings, and an eternity ring on my right hand which was from my parents for my 21st birthday.
My hair usually gets shoved back in a bun and ignored. It is getting quite long at the moment, down past my shoulders. I am tempted to do a Miley Cyrus and go for the big chop, but I’m scared! If I cut it short I also have to go to the hairdresser more often that once every six months! My hair is really thick too, so I always have to get the hairdresser to thin it out.
I never wear make up unless I’m going out somewhere. I just cleanse, tone and moisturise each morning. Most days I also put on sunscreen – I was diagnosed with a small skin cancer just after Anna was born and that is not an experience I wish to revisit.
You can see in the picture at the top (and more clearly in the bio pic in my sidebar) that I have a large pigmentation mark under my left eye. It appeared during my pregnancy with Anna, got even bigger during my pregnancy with Lucy and hasn’t gone away. It’s like a tattoo – my girls have branded me! Not to mention the stretch marks across my tummy…
So that’s me! What about you – do you have a Mummy uniform? Do you hate being in front of the camera? Did your pregnancies leave marks?
