I can't tell you how snug as a rug I am in this outfit. I've layered a whole bunch today, and nothing can make me cold. Funnily, I don't mind a three-quarter sleeved top in winter. It's not wear I feel cold, and frees up my hands to do dishes, take care of children's needs, grab the items at the supermarket. You know, the mum stuff.

Yes, if my feet, chest and tummy are warm, I'm pretty much warm all over.

And I don't mind this look of two black and grey stripey tops clashing together. It makes for a bit of texture to this outfit. And the jeans at the pop of colour it needs.

So tell me... do you layer? Have you tried mixing up contrasts, patterns and similar colours?

Thanks for stopping by!

a day in the life of us


  1. This outfit gets a ten out of ten from me. Love the layering of two stripey tops and even found myself doing that last winter here in Switzerland - greys and blacks always work.

  2. until I read that it was two tops, I thought it was one very funky one. It looks cool, and looks great with your jeans.

    thanks for the inspiration

  3. What a totally funky look Kymmie and like all of the red jean looks, I love this one too!
    The grey and black stripes are fabulous and you DO look warm... but still uber sassy. The pendant is a beauty too xo

  4. I think the necklace ties it all together!

  5. I think the two tops look fab together! x

  6. I am loving this look Kym, those two tops work well together. Layering is something I sway more towards in the colder months too.

  7. Alert Alert Alert! Hot Mumma on the loose!!! whoo -hoo you look smokin' girl xx


Thank you for your thoughtful and positive words and taking the time to comment. Love Kymmie. xx
