A Shopping List - Or Not

Do you remember The Other Mum, the lady who is always so fresh and stylish and who's style I have been trying to copy?

I haven't seen her for a while, but yesterday I saw her pushing her Bugaboo pram in the city.

First, I thought her hair was dirty (I may have been a bit gleeful there for a moment), but then I realized, she was probably just following this new wet hair trend.

So, what else was new with her? What should I add to my shopping list?

I drove past her with our car, so I didn't have much time to analyze her outfit, but two things caught my eye:

1. extra-huge pilot sunglasses and
2. very tight capri jeans in pale orange / salmon color.

Maybe I should find someone new to copy...

My style is not worth showing here, so here is Fräulein in her Italian style.
Jeggings by Benetton (in Italy, naturally), blouse second-hand.

Kirjoitin aiemmin toisesta wiesbadenilaisesta äidistä, jolla on Fräuleinin ikäinen tytär ja samanlaiset Bugaboot kuin meillä. Näin hänet taas eilen. Vaaleanoranssit capri-farkut ja jättimäiset pilot-aurinkolasit saivat kuitenkin miettimään, pitäisikö minun etsiä uusi tyyli-ikoni...

lol, I really, really do not dig the colored jeans thing. Maybe I'm too old for it :)

There's a wet hair trend? Awesome. I love it that I'm fashionable following my normal haircare routine (wash hair; leave house).

Ah how often us mums look in at fellow mums from the outside and think, how in heck does she manage that? You are not alone. I have one friend who always seems so glamorous, whether heavily pregnant or with a crying baby in arm. It amazes me.

Thank you all for your comments!

Wiffy, I don't like them either. And I would never wear any trousers in pale orange or pink - that would just make me look I didn't have anything on...

Frau Dietz, I'm one of the pioneers of that trend, too! :D And thanks, Fräulein has definitely grown! I hope to see you in August!

Workingberlinmum, you are so right! Yesterday, I saw a mum with a month old baby and a toddler, and she was just glowing!

Made me smile...we all know The Other Mum - although for me she's a Mom ;) I bet she even has her own Other Mum
