When I drop my son off at kinder I usually look like a big old bag of dicks (that is the term I use when something looks rotten).
My time management is shocking and if I get my son there only 15 minutes late then it’s a good day. My kinder drop off attire usually consists of leggings, runners and a top. I may or may not plan to workout that day and I’m totally fine with being that mum. I own being that mum.
On the odd occasion life magically runs on time, I will put jeans or shorts on, or something slightly more respectable than stinky workout pants. Those days are few and far between but when they happen I feel like a fucking hero. My kid may still be a tad late, but I am dressed in real life, grown up clothes. WIN!
On many occasions, I have worn jean shorts that are ripped and maybe a tad short. Who cares though? Not me. If it’s hot and I feel a bit bloody cool in them I will wear them. To me, ripped jean shorts are a step above my target leggings.
Poor old Hilary Duff has copped a verbal beating for what she wore to drop her son off at kinder the other day. Good lord people have some serious time on their hands when they take to social media and tell The Duff she looks like a slut in her jean shorts and that her outfit is totally out of order for kinder drop off.
When she posted this pic, she accompanied it with the caption: ‘Hey moms! I came up with a semi cute outfit for school drop off! I usually roll in sweat pants or lulu lemons and look like a disaster but this morning I managed to throw something cute together and I thought would share. Cut offs or jeans. A light weight trench over a sweater or tee, cross body bag sneaks or booties and a pair of Sunnies! Now you try! Tag me in your photo…(annnnd you don’t have to wear such a serious face haha).
Are her shorts short? Yes. Can you see her vagina? No. Does she look comfy but hot? Yes.
Not one part of this outfit offends my eyes. If she rocked up to my kinder wearing that I would congratulate her for looking good and managing to get out of her sports bra for the day. Would I automatically think her shorts are so short that my son is probably going to perv on her and that my husband will want to bang her and will probably leave me now because he saw Hilary in short shorts? No.
Many keyboard warriors looked at Hilary’s outfit and found it as harsh as someone killing their family dog.
Like Rodney McKay who commented- ‘You call this cute?!? A lady of class and substance wouldn’t be caught wearing this even on her worst hair day…
Get a grip on life Rodney, you sour puss.
Or Nicole Rafacz who said: ‘I would be humiliated if my mom showed up to pick me up in booty shorts. Those look like freaking underwear.’
Nic, I am yet to see undies made out of jeans, that would be totes uncomfy.
Hil’s, you look bangin. Kudos to for you for actually doing kinder drop off, if I had your coin I would avoid it like the plague. And on one of my days when life is running on time, I will copy your outfit and feel bad ass.
