Dress-Ups: Mummy Style


Sometimes when I'm having a cruddy day, I dress up. It makes things better. If I feel rad - I feel less sad. I feel INVINCIBLE! (SHAZAM!)

Today I cracked out one of my favourite vintage frocks, some heels, and a coral cardi.

Really, you can't go wrong when you play dress-ups, the only thing you have to please is your imagination.

My imagination was well pleased with this outfit.

Of course, boxes and ugly carpet are optional.

I am just learning this dress up thing. I know I am a late bloomer, but must say I totally agree with you. There is something about changing your mood with hotness, and wow you have that going on. Love the coral. Coral rocks!

Enjoy invincible! x

i'm all for dressing up! who says just because we're mums that we're doomed to yoga pants and 'practical' clothing items. LOVE your dress, love the shoes, the splash of color with your cardi--and, i especially love the street style pose.....i was just reading a refinery 29 article about what your street style pose says about you....if i remember right, yours says that you're spontaneous and fun....xo

I love vintage pleated dresses but cant wear them myself (i have no waist) I upscaled you to see the exact design of the dress and your toenails are divine! Gotta update from smoky brown..... Ive just eaten 4 mint slices so dont feel like playing. You, on the other hand, are GORGEOUS incase no one has told you today, x

Michelle said...

You look gorgeous Lexi! And your hair is looking great too!

Aw Lex you look so purdy in this pic. Loving your hair. Makes me want to cut mine off again, but then I remind myself it's flat and shit and won't look like that.

PS. I'm reading Tove Jansson's short stories again. Love it. I'm not going to go into the hatred I feel towards Eat Pray Vomit. It's strong. I'm relieved you stopped reading. Phew.
