As I was chatting to my BFF recently at our regular Friday morning coffee date, I realised we were both wearing ballet flats, skinny jeans, striped tops and fitted cardigans. The ubiquitous Mum Uniform!
Mum Uniform | What I Wore
- Mum Uniform Ballets – Burberry flats thrifted from Red Cross Rozelle
- Mum Uniform Skinny Jeans – NYDJ Janice jeggings purchased at Nordstrom’s in the US last year
- Mum Uniform Striped Top – Black and blue striped ruched Country Road top
- Mum Uniform Cardigan – Brown Sugar* Moto wool knit cardigan jacket, gifted when I was working with Brown Sugar
I’ve accessorised with a pretty hairpin from Forever 21 (allegedly opening in Australia soon), classic Rayban Wayfarers, edgy onyx earrings from Juel, the classic Mimco Sportivo Timepeace my mother gave me for my Big Four Oh My Gods, and gorgeous arm party semi precious and pearl bracelets from the recent Red Phoenix Emporium Easter Instagram clearance sale. It was a total eggstravaganza.
The stand out star of my outfit is the absolutely stunning Lauren Clutch* by Jessica Bratich. Studded rock chic fabulousness with a handy wrist strap. Not only edgily stylish on the outside, it is clever on the inside too.
The front flap opens to reveal a small section lined in vibrant aqua satin with open and zipped pockets. However, the front flap conceals an internal pocket, also lined with the colourful satin, all held together with concealed magnets.
As my phone case is magnetised, I find it keeps sticking to my clutch – that’s kinda cool for a girl like me who tends to lose the odd thing. Like my keys, my phone, my mind … you know the drill.
