Checks and dungarees

Do you ever wake up in the morning and all that you're sure of is that you want to wear a particular item of clothing, or pair of shoes, that day? I do that quite frequently - sometimes if I'm feeling tired or a bit rundown in the morning I decide that I want to wear leggings to work and then I have to build a work-appropriate outfit around a pair of leggings.  Somehow for me, spending the day in leggings provides enough comfort for me to feel able to spend the day at work (it's a bit like having a pajama day but not at home and sometimes you have to go to meetings).

The Saturday before last (got a bit behind on blog posts - oops!) I knew that the time had come when I needed to wear my new gold Nike Air Vortex trainers. The sun was out, I was heading to Dorchester for cake with the lovely Gem and I wanted to wear trainers, and maybe dungarees.  When I threw this outfit together I decided when I looked in the mirror that I probably look about 16.  Newsflash, I am 30 this year. THIRTY.  Are 30-year-olds allowed to wear dungarees? I hope on my 30th birthday someone doesn't storm my house and remove all of the items of clothing I probably should have left behind a long time ago. Age is a state of mind anyway, and since I still get IDed for alcohol about 90% of the time I'm pretty sure I'm still okay for the moment.

shirt: superdry [old] // dungarees: primark
hat: neff [old] // trainers: foot asylum, £44.99

I did wear tights of course, because even though it's pretty clear it's basically summer now, I'm not quite brave enough to show that much naked leg.  

I am in an excited mood today as we get to go and pick up Bodhi from my parents tonight; he's been holidaying over there for a week or so whilst we were away in Exeter and Tom was away on course so we've really missed him.  It's also my Dad's birthday so he'll be getting some prezzies from me AND I'll also be giving a big 'get well soon' hug to my Mum, who fell down the stairs yesterday and broke her ankle - the worst bit? They cut off her favourite trousers and a pair of her boots! Poor old Mummy!

Hope you're all having lovely Wednesdays and enjoying the sunshine (if you have some where you are!)

  1. Absolutely LOVE this outfit on you! I regularly wake up thinking 'I really just want to wear leggings today' then throw on endless outfits looking for something to team them with, and then usually spend the day feeling a little under-dressed for work, but hey ho...sometimes a girls just gotta wear leggings :)

  2. Oh no, your poor mum! Hope they've given her lots of lovely painkillers.

    ps - being the wrong side of 30 now, I can confirm that the wardrobe fairies do NOT pay you a birthday visit and steal all your age-inappropriate clothing.

  6. I LOVE THIS OUTFIT!

    And, in my humble opinion, you can wear whatever you want. If we all wore plain shit as soon as we hit thirty we'd all look really really dull! I love the fact that I dress like I'm still in my early teens! Haha.

  8. Sorry to hear about your mum! Hope she's okay!
    And I would never have guessed that you were nearly thirty. Nobody looks their age these days anyway so I wouldn't worry about it. I'm still going to be wearing a hoody and jeans until I'm a little old lady!

  9. I really want to get some dungarees, especially with me being preggers I think they would be ace! I'm 31 and when I turned 30 I had this moment when I really had to consider if I could get away with wearing a playsuit ;-)

  10. This outfit looks amazing on you - love the dungarees teamed with the check shirt. You definitely do not look 30! (but then, I guess, what does 30 look like?)

    By the way, love that you mentioned wearing leggings to work: some days I just can't face tights, and only leggings will do. I've actually been wearing leggings for about two weeks to work, but there's a board meeting tomorrow so I might have to dig out my tights *waah*

  13. SO I was thinking about this the other day, I mean I look at people and when I realise they're age I'm shocked and it's hard to think what we can and can't wear when we hit a certain age, BUT people are looking younger and if you don't feel odd in the stuff, then why change it? I hang out with people who are nearly 30 and sometimes I'm like 'THEY'RE SO NOT 30' but then I remember that I'm not 15 anymore, and so I guess it's all natural. WHAT I'm trying to say is that if you feel comfortable in your stuff still, then it doesn't matter if you can or can't wear it. I mean if you start parading around in a 1D crop top and little short short's with a lollipop hanging out your mouth, then maybe you'd need to reconsider (what a bad stereotype I just did of a 15 year old - does that even exist?!). BUT ROSIE, YOU LOOK FABULOUS SO EMBRACE IT. ALWAYS! Ps I always go off track when I comment on your posts - you get me in a fluster obviously xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  18. Age be damned - you are rocking the short dungarees/gold trainers look! Every time I see someone is dungarees I question why I don't own a pair myself!

  19. Ah Rosie you are just too effing cool! I say wear what makes you comfortable and happy, better that than wearing stuff you think you should but don't feel comfortable in, you totally rock the casual look, I love it

  20. I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but I thought you were about my age (23)! I'm flabberghasted (lol) that you are 30 this year! You definitely don't look it :) Hope you take that as a compliment!

    Wish I had the balls to wear dungarees because you make them look so flipping cool! X
