What are you wearing?

What are you wearing?

My friend Sansku tagged me to “Vaatehaaste” meme – what I’m wearing right now.

I wrote last week about what most Durango Moms like, and now I’m revealing my own Mommy Uniform…

Please play along and write about Mom Trends in Your Neighbourhood!

Even though I love to try everything new, there is one classic brand that I just love… Ralph Lauren.
It’s just excatly my style.

This might tell something of me: the only item I have ever bought for myself from GAP is a fisherman’s hat a decade ago. It’s classic, and I still have it, but I’m not too big on buying anything that everybody else has. Except when it comes from Ralph Lauren.

And I even admit this. My Ralph Lauren clothes come from the RL Factory Store.



Ralph himself has his mountain ranch close to Telluride, so he wanted to offer us a treat, a cozy store nested close by the historic train station, and I can’t wait that the weather cools and they start burning fire in the fireplace in the store again. The salespersons know me by name and I should go and visit them again… My last visit has been way too long ago!

So today I’m wearing something like this.. A normal stay-at-home-outfit I can go almost anywhere.

I wear jeans often too, and the oxford-shirts are the uniform to me… They just feel comfortable, and I have them in almost every color RL has made it in, and at least three in basic blue and white and stripe.. so I’ll always have a clean one.

But this is sort of me today:

Green pants and a pink basic tee. On the morning when it was cooler I had a pink oxford on too.



(imgaine without pearls, and with green pony to match the pants of course!!)






I’m tagging Liivia and Kaarina in Finnish and everybody else to do the Mom Trends in My Neighbourhood!

“Tehtävänanto: kerron mitä minulla on päälläni, kun saan tämän haasteen. Tämän jälkeen valitsen seuraavat viisi ihmistä, jotka haastan tekemään saman perästä. Heidän tulee myös kirjoittaa nämä säännöt merkintäänsä. Linkitän haastamani ihmiset tämän merkinnän loppuun ja käyn ilmoittamassa heidän kommenttilaatikoihinsa haasteesta ja tästä merkinnästä”

    Hmm, don’t think I will post it over at my blog but usually an outfit very similar to the paper wings add in your sidebar but with a black long skirt (I have 5–a taffeta J. Crew, a stretchy cotton Gap, a cotton Jones New York and I can’t remember the others) and red or black and white striped long sleeve shirt, tights, and heeled black boots or chunky heeled mary janes. Occasionally pants replace the skirt then I wear slightly stretchy Levi’s or GAP slightly stretchy kacki’s (they fit just right) and a Tommy Hilfiger top (I have a weakness for red, white, and blue) or a fitted sweater. And always healed boots (I own 3 pair) or black chunky healed mary janes. (it is already below 70 here–today it was 50, it getscold ealry in this area–when it is chilly I throw my Pea coat style jean jacket over it.

    Around here most women wear jeans and sports logo t-shirts or sweaters or old lady casual (you know, creased linen pants and embroidered button down tops.) It is an aging community so there aren’t too many women my age around anymore–most have moved away and those who haven’t don’t have much money. The only reason we stay is our families and because we can work from home. The teens in the area have their own brand of fashion–usually including running pants with writing on the butt and a hoodie, really tight jeans with their belly showing, or tin short skirts with a tiny sweater. We live in the outskirts of a tiny city and most of the area is rural.
