WEARING | HUNTING ATTIRE

By Emily Beetleshack
The original author of The Beetle Shack, Emily is a chronic over sharer and collector of unnecessary consumer goods. In a past life Emily was a high school Visual Arts teacher. She always enjoyed the ‘naughty’ kids the most; the ones who were resistant to following the rules and questioned the boundaries. They were interesting, challenging and funny. When she was pregnant with her first child she could be heard saying, “I hope I have a cheeky child, one that speaks his mind and is rebellious in nature”. Unsurprisingly, she did. In the archives of the Beetle Shack you'll find her tales of raising her own ‘spirited’ children whilst swanning about the house dressed as a fruit salad.

I wear this combo SO much. As a busy mum I really need garments that are easy wearing, machine washable and preferably flattering, but that's not essential. Pieces that look 'dressed' but don't feel it.




 Oh you know, photo's after a few wines are allowed to be blurry, aren't they?

Jo and I went out for a casual ladies dinner the other night and this was my outfit choice. My all time favourite Drop Crutch Pant and Plaid Shirt combo. Throw on some massive earrings and heels and that's legitimately dressy enough for dinner, right?

This is the kind of outfit I would have packed in my hospital bag when my babies were born- the pants can be worn on the hip or the waist, which is perfect if you're having a C section, plus they are so comfortable! The top is button down for feeding and 100% cotton. Winning.

Anyways, dinner was great. We had thai.
