It has finally gotten warm here in Massachusetts and that means that Mouse and I are changing over our wardrobes! Time to pack away the corduroy skirts and jumpers, fleece lined leggings and bring out the cottons and lighter layers!
This is pretty easy for me as I generally wear the same dresses year round and just add a long sleeved shirt or turtleneck under them in cooler weather. I have several rayon dresses that I particularly love to wear this way and in warm weather I just wear them with a t-shirt instead.
I love skirt and t-shirt/blouse layered outfits as well and will probably dig through my fabric stash in the next couple of weeks to make a couple more cotton skirts to replace my heavier winter things.
Mostly I choose clothing based on it’s “I don’t have to mess with it once I’m dressed” factors and then think about how it looks! Today we have a a gym class to attend so I’ll try to pick something that doesn’t make me look like a tired-out and harassed homeschool mother probably a skirt and blouse combo with sport sandals!
I’ll wear something similar to the Mass Hope Homeschool Convention this weekend. I’m taking the children and expect I’ll be wearing the Ergo and Jack most of the day and skirts work well for that.
As I’ve mentioned before I try to have the children wear school clothes during school hours as I find it improves attitudes! I had purchased some school uniform jumpers for Mouse and we have found them so comfortable and versatile that when a friend came and did some sewing for me I had her make several similar jumpers for play!
The three Navy corduroy ones (each with different trim to keep things interesting) are too hot now, so I’ll put them away until fall (by which time they’ll probably be too small), but the three brown ones are her “go-to” play dresses.
We’ve found jumpers to be the best solution for her for several reasons:
We both like things that we don’t have to mess with and that have plenty of color and she certainly experiments with color combinations to find what’s cute and suits her mood.
