Recently, a reader wrote to me wanting to update her 'Stay At Home Mum' style. Already quite the cute mama, she wanted to incorporate a more vintage feel into her daily wardrobe, and asked me to look to Rosie The Riviter for some inspiration. So I've put together a few options for daytime and a few for playtime.
I don't believe that mums have to live in pants or jeans. Given that small children require lots of bending and floor time though, skirts need to have lots of movement. I've included this plaid number for those days when the babysitter is on call and a sexy someone meets you for lunch. Our mystery mama is still nursing, so 'easy access' tops, that flatter a larger bust, are critical here. So to create balance, I've focused on her lovely hourglass shape. Wedge heels are a great alternative to court shoes. They give you a bit more stability and are a much more flattering choice with these longer line skirts.
Of course, you can always break out the denim for days at the park, and it wouldn't be a 'Rosie' look with out a little blue. Once again, I've focused on the waist using vests instead of belts to give this look more shape. Updating 'Rosie's' polkadot scarf, is the super cute polka dot head band. A few big curls in the fringe, and you're good to go.
After all this talk of Rosie, I chose to channel her myself today, and fixed a little scarf action for a day of housework and errands. And I think this is a super kawaii do!
