Oh What a Beautiful Morning..

IMG_0581

How do you get dressed in the morning?

 

I have to listen to the ten o’clock news the night before to hear what the weather will be otherwise my wardrobe obligingly falls apart.

 

It didn’t happen last night.  I was on the phone to a friend till gone midnight..

 

And today is a tough sartorial challenge: School drop off, run back home – write this (failed: Internet crashed. Typical,) out on bike to Art class (new venture: love it), back on bike to pilates class (another new venture: Finding muscles I never knew existed…at least I think they’re muscles..), school pick-up and a mum’s night out mashed with Book Club (yep. double booked..) The evening can wait, but now? first thought: Lycra running leggings with birks plus loose tee plus open denim shirt with rolled sleeves, possibly a large scarf depending on weather (damn 10 o’clock news).  Except I can’t find the leggings in the mountainous piles of washing and time ‘n’ school gates wait for no man.  Even the kids are dressed before me. Nearest equivalent? A pair of drawstring brushed cotton navy pyjama trousers…roll the legs up, roll down the waist and I’m sure they’ll look boho something…accessorise neatly with all the inner reserves of chutzpah available on a thursday morning, add a pair of dark sunnies ‘n’ walk the walk ..

 

Do you think it matters they’re actually the husband’s pjs??

Laters, Kate x

    Looking forward to know more about your new artistic venture. And nice to know you do Pilates too, next time in my pain I will think of you. About dressing: I improvise every morning but it is easy here, no kids, the office is at the other side of the corridor… But still: I dress properly, don´t think I spend my freelance hours in jogging trousers.

    Haha, nice post! I wake up at 05:30 and the first thing I do is check the weather on the phone, because at that time you can’t see anything outside and then decide accordingly. If indecisive, like the weather I reach for a pair of jeans and a nice top. The office isn’t very corporate, plus by the time I get to work the weather has changed about a billion times. very nice that you’re on new ventures, if only the day had more hours. I’m sure you will have styled the husband’s pjs so beautifully that no one will be able to tell not only that they are the husband’s but that they’re actually pjs. xxx

    I keep telling myself I want to try Pilates. I need something to mix up my current workout regimen.

    The dark sunglasses will allow you mystery and everyone envies the “Mysterious Woman” looking sexy in her boy friends’s trous…ahem, PJ’s. Perhaps she was able to squeeze in a little morning joy. Hah!

    I love that you went out in PJs I bet you rocked the look. If I could I would live in my PJs.

    My idea of checking the weather to see what to wear is looking out the window in the morning! I dress based on how I feel not the weather.
    I can try a few outfits on some mornings if I’m not feeling the look.

    Maybe I will try PJs next!

    I feel your pain – I check the weather forecast at night too so I can look out my clothes for the next day. If I don’t, then I’m always late for work. Bet you looked fab though xx

    How on earth do you fit it all in?! I guess being fabulous is just one of many art forms you’ve mastered Kate! Jx
