New Mummy Daily Wardrobe

I got speaking with a friend today about the "nothing to wear" situation that hits you after having children. So I have come up daily outfit inspiration to work for a new mummy. If you are able to get a good basics set up sorted it makes getting dressed much easier when tiredness really wants to get in the way and you can't be bothered.

My loves.

*A good pair of boots. Leather is best as they will last longer and are waterproof. Uggs for ultimate comfort and warmth. Most are now weatherproof and as far as I am concerned they will remain in my wardrobe!

*High waisted jeans. My saviour. Holds tummy in.... need I elaborate on this?

*Boyfriend jeans. There are so many different styles, try a few.

*Slim fit jeans. If skinny isn't your thing and neither is boyfriend these could be the ones for you.

*Vests. Great for layering to keep you warm or cold, whichever your body decides. As lets face it your hormones will cause merry hell for you. Plus they aid you in breastfeeding.

*A parka. Matches everything and looks stylish.

*Bobble Hat. 1 its freezing right now and 2 it hides the fact that sometimes you don't have time to get your hair done.

*Jumpers. Pick something colourful or with texture to add interest without feeling like you have bothered

*Cardigans. Not as dated as they may sound. After all if you are breastfeeding they are practical.

*Shirts. For the same reason as above. Think checks, plaids or spots!

*Lipstick and mascara may be the last thing on your mind but Mum used to always say to me to pop these on and I would feel and look better. She was right. Even a pale gloss if you can't bare the thought of brights.

*Leggings. Not the see through variety please, no one wants to see your knickers. You can get some great hold you in types which scream "jeans day off" worn with a oversize jumper or cardi you have comfort.

  9. This is a fantastic and relevant post. Whilst pregnant with #1 I received so much nonsense advice when actually I needed someone to tell me to build a casual wardrobe as my old work stuff and more dressy weekend attire was nolonger going to be used. I nolonger live in UK (just hot climate here) but you can take the girls out of the UK but never the UK fashion.from the girl hence lurking on your blog!
