Style Like A Mother: The Paper Bag Trouser & Classy Sweatshirt Edit
Style Like A Mother
[dropcap custom_class=”big”]Autumn is approaching and I have been looking at ways to warm up my outfits without getting my full winter wardrobe out. Even though the weather has taken a turn. I am not ready to completely transition yet. I am wanting some autumnal colours and simple designs to keep me warm from a chill but without a big jacket or coat. So I went on the hunt for some new items and I found two that I am loving at the moment and that would be perfect for my new Modern Mum Fashion Segment : Style Like A Mother. Because Pleeeease, just because we are mums and are usually looking to simplify our lives. It doesn’t mean we need to migrate to Frumpville. Check out this months edit
The Paper Bag Trousers
No, this are not some crazy fashion trend inspired by the homeless ie. Zoolander Derelicte! These are what I like to call the “feels like pyjamas but totally are not” trousers. I have been eyeing these trousers for ages and wasn’t convinced it would suit me. I was sure that with my mum bod i would end up looking more like a potato than anything else.
But after reading a few blogs and seeing some amazing products. I thought I would take the leap. And guess what? I love them! They are so comfortable and yet effortlessly stylish. I bought these burgundy ones from H&M. I paired it with a cream polo neck, small matching burgundy cross over bag ( also H&M) and some heels. Though I think you could also wear them with plain white trainers.
The “Classy” Sweatshirt
[dropcap custom_class=”big”]It was really funny. I wore this sweatshirt a few times and all of my mum friends commented on it. What is it with oversized shirts that seem to attract us mums? I am an avid lover of sweatshirts and oversized jumpers. They are easy, comfortable and baggy enough to make me look slimmer than I am. I could literally live in my husbands Nike sweatshirt all day everyday. But I don’t think it appropriate for all occasions especially when I need to pop into town or pick Gabriel up from nursery. Though I must admit I have worn far worse on the Nursery pick up before.
I bought this mid sleeved sweatshirt from Missguided. It is affordable, easy to wear and has a soft furry cuff on the sleeve which is nice to touch.[/dropcap]
I just bang it on with my black jeans from Massimo Dutti and my new ankle boots from Steve Madden. And a dark red lipstick!
And there it is. My fav items of the moment. What are your favourite fashion items of the moment.
