outfit post – the summer edition

posted in: Grow Mama, Uncategorised

They are popular, these outfit posts. I get a bunch of emails after each one. An over-riding theme is cash-strapped mama’s amazed that i manage to put together these outfits on so little money. Yup, folks…second hand and vintage is where it’s at! Kinder to the wallet and the earth. It’s win, win.

This cotton jersey black and white stripe dress is by Bauhaus. Hospice charity shop. $6.
(It’s one of my favourite summer dresses this year. So soft and i like the flow of the skirt.)
Red wool cardigan by Claire Patterson. Save mart. 
Straw hat. Left behind by my sister when she moved house.
My favourite ever shoes: clogs by Lotta of Stockholm. 

 The favourite summer earrings: silver anchors from Presentz gift shop on Auckland’s Richmond Rd. $9.

 Bunny optional.

Vintage navy linen raglan sleeve top. Made by me. 
Country Road boy style shorts. $4 from Salvation Army. (They still had original tags. over $100 new. People pay that much for shorts?!)
Moccasins. $12. Trademe.

Lots of primary colours this year. Simple clothes. Comfortable clothes. Red clothes. Clothes that can go from homeschooling or the beach to a client meeting with a quick change of accessories. 
Next up in the outfit dept? Polka dots and pops of colour.

What are you enjoying wearing this season? It’s all summer dresses and togs (swimsuits) for us down south but those of you in the northern hemisphere must be all layered up?!
