Your “Go-to” item??
As a young(er) lady, a night on the tiles always meant a sweet outfit. And like most women I always had a trustee reliable outfit that I could always turn to( Kookai 60’s style, striped wrap dress, gorgeous , size 10 that still sits in my wardrobe and winks at me from time to time. Would need an extra yard of material in both directions to make it even close to fitting me now, boo hoo:( )
Annyhooo, so now I’m a mummy and not “out on the tiles” any more, I still have a “go-to” outfit, admittedly its not an exciting mini dress to be wined and dined in, but it is an outfit that never fails to make me feel happy for my daily chores and that’s what’s important these days!
“Dressing up” to me has changed its meaning, I get “dressed up” to go to the supermarket or work these days as getting changed into anything other than joggers or baggy jeans and hubby’s t shirts is “dressing up”!
So my “Go To” item is my trusty reliable Denim shirt dress, it never fails me. It looks smart but casual and can be dressed up or down. I like trying different accessories with it, such as scarves, chunky jewellery, sometimes boots, or shoes, tights maybe leggings and even my trusty red converse.
What makes it even better is that I wore it to my office one day for work (I work in a predominantly male industry) I was told I looked like I had lost a lot of weight*, which as any woman I’m sure would agree, makes this outfit my winner every time!
*On a side note, the person who said this last saw me when I was heavily pregnant! So I kinda hope I do look at least 8lb 6oz slimmer as I had a whole other person growing inside me at the time! However as not many compliments come my way in this workplace, i’ve decided to take it as a nice man saying something complimentary for a change (On second thoughts, he did then go on to ask for additional time to pay his bill!! need I say more!)
