#HotLikeAMother : Meet Aberdeen Mums Turning Fashion Into Business
#HotLikeAMother is the new blog series created by Confidently Kylie that looks to break the barriers and expectations of Motherhood. Too often we hear that when you become a mother you must conform and sacrifice who you are and become the perfect picture of a frumpy, homemaking woman of the 50’s. But I call Bull Shit. Society’s expectations often brings mothers down. Making them feel like they are no longer relevant. At Confidently Kylie, we are here to bring mothers up and inspire mums to embrace their inner fire.
In this series I will be interviewing and getting to know some of the UK’s most kick ass mums. From inspiring boss babes, to stylish fashionistas, to just damn right inspirational mothers. All in the quest to encourage mums to go for their passions and be Hot Like A Mother…….

MEET OCTOBERS HOT MUMS
Two friends, two mumpreneurs taking their passion for fashion to a whole other level. Kate and Claire are the founders and owners of up and coming personal styling service Coveted Styling. When I first met Kate and Claire I was immediately drawn to the duo. Not only for their impeccable style but also for their down to earth “mumsyness”. Their friendly nature and relatable characters immediately put me at ease and I felt like I could discuss anything and everything with them over a cup of tea. I spoke to Kate and Claire about Fashion, being a mum and their business.
Fashion is definitely one of my passions too. What made you start Coveted Styling?
Both of you are mums and seem to be juggling a lot. How do you keep on top of running a business, looking stylish plus the everyday challenges of motherhood?

They look fab especially the leggings. I don’t look like this at home but I do dress fly for work. I’m impressed. Beautiful clothing
They have great style don’t they?
Thank you 😊
I love the advice Claire gives about not overthinking your wardrobe nor following trends but Investing in good quality wardrobe staples. That is great for your look, your pocket and the environment!
Yes I agree! Best to invest in staples
Great post! So many useful tips.
Glad you liked it
What a great post, I love how real and fashionable these two Moms are!
Thank you! Yes they are very real
Love the black boots with the pink sweater!
Yes I love the boots too
I love the advice on how to look fashionable and effortless. So often I skip the trends because I don’t have the time. I’m going to have to start trying a bit more and make it be more effotless.
Yes I think when we have the right staples it is doable
I agree that investing money in some key high end accessories is the way to go! Love the looks they’ve come up with.
I love everything about this. Fashion was something I loved before babies, and now, I’m lucky to change out of my pjs (which sometimes I do at 5pm before my husband comes home so he doesn’t think i’m a bag lady). My kids look like little Baby Gap models tho, LOL. I think having two or three solid pieces to build a wardrobe around is key. Killer pants, shoes, and a go-top… for me that makes the difference between feeling like i have nothing to wear and knowing that i can easily wear something i’m confident in with any one of those items.
