Day 4 - My Children Chose My #OOTD

We're back on track with both the 7 and the 10 year choosing the outfit. My 10 yr old's favourite colour is orange - BRIGHT ORANGE - so there is no surprise that the top was the first thing he grabbed. He was concerned (rightly so) that the top has big gaping bat wing sleeves and a top would be needed underneath. I guided him by saying just a vest top or long sleeved tshirt would be highly recomended and I showed him all that I have. He chose simple white - good lad!

He picked the first pair of jeans from the bulging jean drawer and so that's why we have the skinny combats.

My 7 yr old was in charge of shoes and jewellery - I cannot believe he chose so well.

When the outfit was all straightened and on the bed it was a vision of amazingness (made up word?).

Here I am in all my orange glory!

I've had them make a video because I didn't think anyone would believe that my 2 boys could put something together that totally and utterly works a treat - I shall be wearing this combo again (haven't ever put it together in the 3 yrs I've been taking my own photo)!

Last day tomorrow!

Day 3 - My Children Chose My #OOTD

I knew they wouldn't both last the whole week. Son one (aged 10) already passed the challenge off to his brother (aged 7) with 'you can choose the whole outfit for tomorrow' whilst he scuttled off to play FIFA again on the X Box! Fortunately youngest was more than happy to choose it all.

Inspired by the jumper (he's animal obsessed) the rest of it was (in his eyes) carefully selected. The tshirt was for warmth because he said you can't just wear a jumper. The jeans were the first pair he picked out of my drawer, the boots he (apparently) thought about too. He's been trying to get me to wear this stupid belt all week so when he had free reign on his own it was the first thing he selected. I have NO idea why I have this belt - it's minging! It's too wide to sit in any belt loop and so it rides up and down and never stays in place.

They neatly laid out outfit the night before:

Day 2 - My Children Chose My #OOTD

It was all going so well when Oliver (7) picked out one of my new favourite dresses from Wolf & Whistle last night in preparation for today's #ootd.

I then told him that in just a dress I'd be cold so he went to choose a couple of (random) layers to keep me warm.

Day 1 - My Children Chose My #OOTD

Last week on the Avenue 57 group on Facebook, someone posted a link to a blogger who had allowed her toddler to dress her for a week - with very funny results (love the mis-match shoes outfit).

I'm always up for a laugh and a bit of attention seeking so I thought I would give this a go. At first I said a week but I've changed it to the 5 working days of the week. Next weekend I am meeting some good blogging friends in London for our annual meet up and there is NO WAY I am allowing my children to dress me for that!

It started off with some serious discussion about what to start with. I have 2 wardrobes and a shoe cupboard ...
