I’ve decided to dip my toe into the waters of fashion blogging. Yeah, yeah, I know, settle down at the back. I don’t do fashion.
But just because I don’t wear it, doesn’t mean I don’t love it. I like looking at clothes in shops, I like looking at what people are wearing – good and bad. I like to see how they’ve put an outfit together and whether or not it works. I also love reading about fashion and stuff.
I just don’t want to wear it myself – gorgeous little dresses, darling little cardigans and must-have heels have no place in my wardrobe. And as for accessories?! Life is WAY too short. So it’s Superdry jeans and hoodies for every ocassion – school run (check), meal out with husband (check), birthday lunch with family (check), evening out with colleagues (check) and school governors’ meetings (check).
So why do I want to write about fashion? Because I live out my feminine/ fashion side through my daughter, of course. If that’s really wrong, I apologise.
I’ve written a little bit about my daughter’s clothing before – this one recently and this one way back in the day (it only had six views!). My daughter has some amazing outfits – she has some lovely clothes and between us we put them together quite nicely, if I do say it myself. So I’m going to be sharing some of them every now and then.
As I took the decision right from the start not to post recognisable pictures of my children, I won’t be showing her face.
So here goes, with the first outfit…
My daughter loves skirts and she loves ballet. So you can imagine how taken she was with this skirt from M&S Autograph collection which is covered in ballet dancers! It’s a bit big for her, so it will last into next winter too.
She wore it with her red long-sleeved owl Tshirt from Gap,which is one of the most useful items in her wardrobe as it can be worn under a lot of things.
Then she just added her red school tights and her Clarks pink brogues. I know red and pink shouldn’t go together, but I think the rules are different for children and this outfit really works. It is cute and individual.
