Buckles? Ain’t nobody got time for that! Heels? Don’t even. Let’s face it – times have changed and on-point fashion has moved down the list of priorities. While we may not be on our “A Game” anymore, we have definitely figured out how to be on our “B+ Game” with a few mummiforms that can get us through any parenting situation!
1.The Mum bun
For the other 364 non-salon days of the year.
When the only opportunity for exercise you will get is running as fast as you can away from the day care at drop off.
3. Knee length shift dress
Because carbs have been the hero of the dish for the past 4 meals.
4. Stripy top and denim bottoms
Sometimes accidentally matching the kids.
5. Plain black top
From conference to canteen, or boardroom to ball pit in under 60 seconds.
6. Maxi dress and thongs
When you’re trying to keep it classy but your legs are hairy and bending down to put proper shoes on is in the too hard basket.
7. $4 Kmart t-shirt
Because after a few weeks, the cost per wear is in negative, totally justifying that expensive pram you’ve been eyeing off.
8. Colourful scarf
No-one will ever guess you wore that mummiform yesterday.
9. Knee length shorts and flowy top
The middle might jiggle but look, freshly shaved legs!
10. Puffy vest
Baby weight? What baby weight? PLUS – arms must be as unrestricted as possible because for most of the day they will need to carry a child, 4 toys, a handbag and a scooter. Probably simultaneously.
11. White top and pattern stretchy pants
When you wake up, change out of your pyjamas and put on “day” pyjamas which fortunately are deemed by society as acceptable enough to leave the house in except you have to wear a bra dagnammit.
12. Drapey Cardi
Add to any of the aforementioned mummiforms to instantly create the illusion of a whole new winter wardrobe.
