Style Like A Mother
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
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
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.
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.
