Soccer mum style

If you’ve got school age kids you’re probably familiar with the weekend schlep around suburban ovals to watch your offspring get sweaty and muddy while you freeze on the sidelines.

But as this stunning mother shows, a classic pea coat, roomy leather and tapestry bag, and a pair of classic Hunter wellies will make you the fox of the field.

    OMG she looks frickin freezing!!

    • Andrea

      Hey DP, It was soooo cold. That’s what you get for living on the coast 😉

  • Pene

    Love the wellies!!  I am on 5 acres so these would be a very cool addition that could take me from plonking around the garden and veggie patch, to doing the school run..  I like it – I like it a lot.  But as DP said – she does look frickin freeeeeeezing!!  Poor little munchin at her heels looks none too pleased with the cold either!!!  Thank goodness his Mammy chose to wear a nice blue scarf not pink!  Its a cool look.  (ahh haa –  literally!!)

    • Andrea

      Oh Pen you would look hot in these – they come in different colours too. I couldn’t help watching this mum as she looked so stunning, but was so, so sweet with the boy, cuddling him & giving him her scarf. Cool mum. Cold mum! x

    I’m a gumboot girl from way back. This is how to do it in style. The peacoat is gorgeous too.

    • Andrea

    I love this look but I don’t want to be that cold. I would like to be a Qld version of it. Rachel

    I know this is an old post but does anyone know where I can get a great pea coat from for this winter? I quite like the length in the one above. Thanks!

    • FoxInFlats

      I just saw a great one in Country Road.

      • Cheryl

        Just had a look at the CR site and the coat looks lovely. Thanks Andrea!
