With a hectic nonstop
schedule, busy moms rarely take the time to ponder about their outfits. Most of the time, whatever works and is comfortable is what you're going
to wear, and that's final. However, these not-so-thought-out ensembles sometimes result in scrutiny from the kids.
After many eyerolls from
her three daughters regarding her outfits, journalist Charlotte Kemp of the
Daily Mail decided to allow her kids to dress her for a day, who each have very
different styles. Her youngest daughter Martha, who is 5 years old, has even
refused to get out of the car due to Charlotte's gym attire. While
Martha may be a bit critical, 10-year-old Bea loves colors, while 13-year-old
Amelia is a sensible, smart shopper who loves deals.
Here are the results of this
mother-daughters styling session.
For a school run, Martha
styled Charlotte in polka-dot denim shorts, pink T-shirt, jeweled sandals and
a mini purse. While we love the playfulness of the outfit, the shorts are a bit
too much, according to Charlotte.
"This looks uncannily like
the clothes Martha has been wearing all summer," told Charlotte to the Daily Mail. "She's even
found a toy town bag from Ted Baker. But I fear I might be a little old for
this—maybe it's my turn to refuse to get out of the car?"
Bea's take on a school-run
outfit was a lot more appropriate and actually looked darling on Charlotte. Donning
a long-sleeve floral printed blouse, white trousers and tan wooden wedges, she
certainly does not look like she woke up on the wrong side of the bed.
"Mum doesn't even brush her
hair in the morning, she's in such a rush!" said Bea. "I hate it when she looks
scruffy. It's really embarrassing, especially when she wears leggings—they
don't suit older people, that's a fact! I think she should wear something smart
Her oldest daughter Amelia
opted for a striped frock and a pair of white sneakers for comfort. Although
the dress would be cute for a night out, the addition of trainers makes it a
bit too young.
"I feel like an extra in a teen
movie," said Charlotte. "This is definitely heading for Amelia's wardrobe, but I'll
fight her for the plimsolls—they're so comfy."
