Got an Answer?
Why would you go outside the house in clothes that you clean in? That’s just so bogan, like I get mum’s don’t have time but it literally takes 2 minutes to put on some decent clothes before leaving the house.
They’re usually loud, swear, yell at the kids in public and wear Kmart clothing.
If my son doesn’t do his hair properly or change into his nice clothes before we head out I ask him if he wants everybody thinking he’s a hobo or a bogan.
This may sound judgemental to some people but I think it’s very important to instil a sense of personal pride in your appearance and quite frankly I don’t care what anyone thinks about that.
I’m doing right by him as a latent should be.
Not wasting time to get changed
Sale clothes from Katies
Decuba has nice stuff. Nice leggings with oversized tops for gardening. Jeggings are comfortable for cleaning and gardening. Paired with a nice necklace looks nice if someone calls by.
Witchery has good staples. You said you like the uniformy type so maybe stick with black basics as the ‘uniform’ type. Think Audrey Hepburn classics. Tailored pants, nice top, different touches like a scarf instead of a belt. A good pair of sunglasses. Accessories can make the classics different everyday. Maybe two luxury handbags... one black for staple and one a popping colour or something out of the ordinary, fendi baguettes are good sized and a bit different.
All black outfit ... add huge hoop earrings and a popping lipstick
Black slacks , colourful v neck sleeveless top paired with basic earrings and black staple luxury handbag.
Quality Haircare and good basic make up you can apply in under 5 minutes make going from cleaning to changing to head out much easier. A messy bun looks far better if your hair is clean & maybe has a shiny silver clip added
I’ll take the high maintenance as a compliment, thank you.
I would love to be a stylist, would definitely have to be a side hustle as I doubt many would pay for such a luxury these days.
Oh & I was is country road this afternoon, add that to a list of a place to find good staples. Great quality and some fun quirky pieces
If you’re using bleach and digging in the garden you’re gonna have to go for trackies or cheap leggings coz they’ll get ruined. No one will see you in them. For errands my go to is jeans or jeggings and a nice casual top. Sketchers or nice shoes depending on where I’m going.
Just wear whatever makes you feel comfortable
Am out of my depth
Ok op. What is your body shape, and what do you usually wear?
Winter, I just wear jeans and a nice jumper with casual shoes... you should definitely run a brush through your hair and change before leaving the house if you've been cleaning and gardening? At bare minimum.. lol.. personally I'd have a quick shower, Takes 10 minutes.
Jeans/jeggings, shirt (short sleeved), jacket/cool cardigan, as a base, you can then add a scarf/hat/gloves/necklace when you want, can wear a wide variety of shoes with this ‘base outfit’ too taking it from super casual to more formal. Sneakers, boots, heels, wedges, thongs, slides.
