Out In The Sunshine: Style Tips


Besides the fact that I have been struck with a truly deep affliction, that of deep, unrequited Rupert love, it's sunny in our little corner of the world.

So today, here at PMM HQ we've decided to come at you with some style tips (not for the faint fashion hearted):

- DO dress for an activity you might like to do (even if there's not any notion of when you're going to be doing it - for days, weeks, or months). It's preferable that one of your accessories comes from a sibling's cupboard and you wearing it causes them to have a meltdown (or your mama just has to buy another to save household from spontaneously combusting)
- Swimming caps ARE a good look year round, pool side or not
- DO wear your swimming cap pulled down so that it squashes your forehead a little. This serves not only to make you look a little cranky (or neanderthal - both are HAWT), but also can serve well to age you a little - with a nice big crease across your forehead, for when (and if) you ever decide to take off the swimming cap
- When possible, DO find the swimming goggles and wear them too. Then have a hissy fit at them. Then pop them on again and go out to a cafe and check out the world through sky coloured glasses
- When Vogue Italia calls to ask for your styling prowess, DO charge them a gazillion. Style this good does not come cheap

Tiny, I love you!

And hey, the coat and cap ARE colour coordinated. That takes skill.

Thanks for the style tips, I shall run out and get Poppy a yellow swimming cap now, because she doesn't want to be too much of a conformist, mix it up a little. I will be sure to assure people she hasn't been hit by 4x2 plank when that great line appears.

Finally DO make sure you leave the cap and goggles in a really obscure location so that Mummy has to have a complete panic attack right before your next swimming lesson.

Caps and goggles rock, just ask any Italian fashionista.

Tiny the style icon, oh yeah.

She's ace! When I was a kid I insisted on wearing an ice-cream container as a hat & a terry towelling nappy as a cape. Swimming cap & goggles are WAY more fashionable that that.

Katrine said...

Bek said...

My girly loves goggles/"guggles" and wears them with equal aplomb as she "scuba dives" around the house/shops. Good to know she is in good company.

Too funny! You had me in stitches. Ellie walked around all of last Tuesday with her deflated floaty armbands over both her forearms as if she was carrying a handbag. They have funny notions in their heads don't they?

Anna said...

Can we have the "run way" to "real way" post tomorrow please, for the budget conscious among us :)

Katy said...

LOve it! Get me to the store to buy a swimming cap x

The Smurf's partial to a bit of goggle accessorising, only he refers to them as gobbles.

i nearly wet myself reading that post!! I was a frequent swimming cap wearer as a child - particularly on rainy days.
