WEARING | 100 WHITE TOPS


 Do you love a white top? I do. In fact, I love a white top so much that in my colour coded wardrobe (yes, I really do colour code) white tops make up about 40% of my total hanging space. Geee, this is interesting, the inner workings of my wardrobe. Fascinating.

Anyways, this morning little Pip and I executed the above photo 'shoot' (ehum). We set the camera up on the tripod and went mental (or something).

 I did spend a brief moment pondering what this kind of vanity would be teaching my impressionable daughter, but I decided that a little fun induced vanity is better than picking at the flaws whilst crying into a latte.

 It was a significant amount of fun and Pip 'art directed' the entire thing. Stand this way mum, wear your hat mum, no don't take it off, hold it like this, and lets change, wow your belly is like jelly and so on.

So Pippi, I'm your mother and my belly is like jelly and it's totally excellent!

I'm wearing a collection of white tops with my Bohemian Traders Distressed Skinnies. My all time favourite jeans - mid rise, slim in the leg and a lovely amount of distressing to disguise my mammoth thighs (oh no, where's my latte).

WEARING (from top to bottom)

Ruffle Hem Blouse | size S | This little darling is cut with a slight swing through the body which means it hides the muffin top (YAY) and a super deep V neckline which allows for great breast-feeding access when you need it. It will also be super cute over swimmers this Summer!

Lace Trim Blouse | size M | I'm in love with this one. Super soft, super floaty and super flattering sleeves to minimise the impact of tuck shop arms.

Dusty Linen Smock | size S | I've been wearing this dress in steel for days and days and days. In fact I think I wore it 7 days straight last week. It's in the wash now (and it'll stay there for another 7 days- thus is the washing turn around at The Beetle Shack). It's PERFECT. Super flattering, super layerable, super forgiving, lovely quality linen and breast feeding friendly.

Button Down Swing Tank | size S | Super swingy through the body, the Button Down Swing Tank is perfect for pregnancy, feeding and forever more. You'll be needing the natural colour also.

  5. Thanks for sharing this. I have to wear white to work everyday, perhaps I should try something a little prettier then a plain white tee.

  9. I love them all. White and denim is the best. I'd love a post on your colour co-ordinated wardrobe! I do the same hahaha ... but honestly I would. Also - I've just had my first baby and I'm wondering whether I'll ever take the time to put my clothes away again?

  15. I love white tops and you look so bright and beautiful!! But do you have ANY magic, advice, tricks on how to erase embarrassing pit stains? Ugh those stubborn stains usually keep me away from white...!

  17. You look great and I always loved to dress up and take photos way before blogging or digital cameras. I see no harm. Like you said, better than giving her an example of an insecure mother always feeling inadequate. :)
