We get a lot of emails from stay at home mums who still want to look super-stylish. And we can never resist an SOS. I promise we’ll dedicate a post to you, but in the meantime, how about this little end-of-the-sales bargain…?
I’m thinking ahead to cooler days here. And I’m thinking about giving a nod to fashion without having to think about it; as I suspect with a three-year-old starting pre-school (8.45am start – eek!) and a new baby, time is going to be my long-lost friend for a while. (Mind you, Alex has one starting school and one starting nursery, so I can but bow down before her.)
You know a striped top is a classic no-brainer, right? Well, zhush it up, people, with this bargain from Chinti & Parker. I bought a grey version in the Net-a-Porter sale which I plan to throw on over jeans during maternity leave. (Yep, still pregnant. Yep, definitely feeling ready not to be. 34.5 weeks and counting, baby wriggling madly as I type. What was I THINKING having a final trimester during a heatwave, eh? Respectful nod here to any other pregnant ladies, including Jo Tutchenor-Sharp of Beauty Seen PR who is having her second as I have mine!)
Anyway, a mama uniform. With style kudos….
Upgrade your jeans from skinnies to something slightly looser-fitting (try hush, Topshop and Gap). I like the idea of wearing this with something bright or clashing on my feet.
