Day 17: Pigtails...and a Batman cape...?


Jumper: Crave Maternity, Skirt: Top Shop, Shoes: Pod, Hat: Accessorize

Were you with us on Facebook, when we were asking each other the million-dollar question:
When is too old to wear pig-tails?
Our conclusion? We'll still be wearing them when we're 90....

I think it's all about how you wear them...I'll be leaving the gingham ribbons to the school-girls, and plump for low-slung hippy braids instead.

And as for this jumper...remember seeing it here, way back on Day 9 of my 30 for 30 outfits, as a tunic dress? Is there no end to its versatility? Perhaps next time, I'll sport it as a pair of trousers...I'm thinking the armholes could somehow double up as the legs...and the time after that, a Batman cape...

Yeah, baby, see me work it....

You are so adorable! LOVE the braids. I think I have way too many layers for braids, though (I just got a modified Rachel cut...remember Jennifer ANniston's hair from friends in the nineties? well the Rachel is back...only different).... You really should write a book with your cute outfits for other expectant moms!

You're absolutely right about pigtails. If they look good (like you you, m'dear), then wear them. I look like a demented idiot with pigtails so I won't be wearing them anytime soon.

Is it sunny where you are? It looks it. No sun here. Grey as grey can be.

I agree...the braids are adorable!! You look great!!

Tricia said...

I think those braids are the way to go...you're looking cute! I love pigtails too, but I think my hair is too long for them...when you're older, it seems like pigtails and mid-length hair work best.

You look so cute in the pigtails. I didn't know there were maternity sweaters - my daughter has been too hot this pregnancy to wear anything like that. She's even been wearing sleeveless tops! I had to check the earlier post to see it worn as a tunic. Very versatile piece and I love the color.

I had pigtails all the time growing up - disciplinarian paternal grandmother, boarding school rules, convent school rules and public English school rules!! Have not gone back there but I love it when my kids sport them...hmmmm perhaps it is time to try them again.:)

Emily w/Amazing Grapes said...

Cute outfit! And for the record, I will ALWAYS continue to put my hair in pigtails, regardless of my age. haha but like you, I'll leave the ribbons for the little girls..unless, we're matching that day. haha

You are one spunky diva! :) Seriously, your humour cracks me up.
I love pig-tails. I wore them to my 2 year olds "Farm" themed b'day party in November (Except mine were too short at the time to plait). Keep on wearing them - I could totaly see you in them at 90! ;)

I'm still loving that skirt. Your braids are adorable.

Annie said...
