#mumfashionmonday


Hello you!

Now don’t get excited I am not turning into a fashion blogger but when I was asked to take part in this week of mum fashion I agreed because I loved what it stood for. Mum fashion is a very different area of fashion that people don’t realize how difficult it is to master until they are in it….knee deep in it….knee deep in many a thing let’s be honest. I was shocked to be asked because I don’t really class myself as a fashionable person but I do have my own wee style.

I LOVE charity shops, my friends wardrobe clear outs, the sale item noone else looked at. Maternity pay learned me a whole new way to dress/shop and I became more thankful for items I do have. I love that I am not restricted by names, value or anything other than me liking what I am wearing these days. I hope you enjoyed my week of outfits and maybe inspire you to think outside the box for your next outfit.

MY STYLE

Describe your style.

Well I will let you be the judge of that, but I think it’s just me. Depending on my mood or the day I dress to suit how I feel..so one day glam the next my pjs.

What are your most common go to items in your wardrobe?

My silver shoes! (Given to me by a friend who thought they weren’t her) she got them from TK max. My long green coat from Top shop.. (charity buy). Skinny jeans and a t-shirt or the blessing that is a baggy/wooly jumper!

What are a your favourite clothing shops?

Charity shop’s ofcourse! I mean please try one. They really helped me when at times I couldn’t have got the coat or the shoes if I had to pay the full retail price and I was able to keep my wee bank balance healthy. My favourite go to stores tho are H&M, TKMAX, PRIMARK, NEWLOOK AND SMALL BOUTIQUES.

Where do you find your style inspiration?

I genuinely have no idea…I think I might see someone or something and say oh that’s nice but really I just go with my own body, how I feel and what suits me rather than following any trend.

Have you any fashion tips you could share?

Yes! Mum’s listen up.

BABY POWDER IN THE ROOTS OF YOUR HAIR IS A MIRACLE WORKER!

Denim and white always looks good when all else fails.

Stick on tan if you feel urgh and you know what just look at you and if you think it’s good on you and it works you just go with it. People who don’t follow fashion are the ones people look to follow isn’t it?

Wear that baby vomit/ bleach stained jumper with pride…throw a leather jacket over the top and you will be perfect.

Love Sarah.

This jumper is my husbands when I feel like I need a hug or comfort I go straight for it. Guess what….its 20 years old! My jeans are my oldest softest jeans and my hair was unbrushed…my face untouched but yet my role never changed.

Love

Love….
Love the word is threw around all the time, “Bye..love you”
“AWH babe I LOVE your coat”
“hahaha..I just LOVE your jokes”
“I would just LOVE one of those”
Love is used as a throw away word these days…love is losing its meaning.
I feel love is also portrayed as a purely happy thing..”oh they are so in love” because they see a couple smiling and kissing ..but I want to take a moment to tell you what I feel real love truly is.
It’s hurting like you’ve never hurt before ..its suffering heart breaking loss together ….its sacrificing the things you hold dear for someone else. Its unselfish..its pure..its not for gain…its not magical and full of fairy tales its holding your partner when they are broken and lost..its having a massive row and then making them a cup of tea later. It’s telling them you hate them and to get lost! Its fighting over the dishwasher or who’s turn it is… Its giving him the last roastie of your plate because he loves them. Loving someone isn’t all rainbows and glitter, but when you do get those moments they make the hard bits worth it all. We like to have a wee niggle a day at each other…but when I cry he’s the first I want he is my cave..I want to be isolated in his arms. Being in love is all comprising…other times I don’t want to see him for the near future but when the dust settles that yearning starts. Being is love is something you grow in..you learn and gain more deeply how to love the longer you stick at it..if both play there part love is endless. We see so much of the word love but it seems so common for marriages to break up for people to leave and walk out…love is getting lost somewhere is it because we are not teaching the true meaning of love? People are walking into relationships expecting Disney films, then when its more a thriller they decided to leave..(I totally understand some relationships do have to break I understand that I’m just meaning relationships who have so much potential but people don’t want to put the work in. They want everything gave to them without the work) Loving the person wholly with all the flaws with all the worries and scars..giving yourself to them and them to you, learning to comprise for love. That’s when you know you creating something worth while. So have those arguments..scream and shout or give the cold shoulder..but above all love! The main reason I wrote this is because someone was shocked at me and my partner having a row and asked was everything ok with us….I just in that moment thought how many people start to worry about things like this or if they have got it wrong because of an argument. I just want to put it out there it is perfectly normal to argue and not like each other from time to time…it doesn’t mean you have lost your love. A good old row clears the air and sets you on a path you can both agree on!
