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.
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.
