Being a Mum to four kids, means i’m often last on the list for haircuts, new shoes, expensive bubble bath….and new togs. Often, i have to save for aaages for a lovely new coat, or wait until my birthday in June to receive items i’ve had ‘pinned’to my wishlist for months on end!
I love clothes-but wouldn’t call myself stylish, i just buy what i like & what works for my lifestyle. My wardrobe is a mixture of high street and supermarket brands, i’m no label snob, but i find investing in good quality staples which can be worn throughout the seasons-metaphorical fashion ones & real life ones, is the way to go. Throughout the year you’ll find me in jeans-with flip flops in summer & boots in the winter! Tights and dresses just aren’t practical for clambering in and out of the defender or bringing in baskets of logs. I like a good high waisted pair to hide my muffin top & keep my mum tum a delight for only my husband to have to catch sight of occasionally!
My new ‘Skye’ Jacket from Fatface was really put to the test when we took these photos, it was raining and blowing a gale, but the soft jersey lining kept me warm, and the high neck meant i was protected from the howling wind!
(I’m wearing my ‘all calm’ skinny shaping jeans in these pics-not only do they hold my mum tum in, they also give me an arse!)
I think i’m generally quite a ‘safe’ dresser, i don’t stray far from my (mum) uniform of Chelsea boots, Breton top, blue denim, a scarf and jacket so these gorgeous Esther boots are a little out of my comfort zone-but I flipping LOVE them(no I don’t have time to do up laces, they have a handy zip at the side!)
Lots of folks asked me about this jumper/scarf combo after spotting it in my Instagram story. The scarf its the softest & thickest i’ve ever owned(great for hiding a make-up free face on the school run), the jumper is called Leona, I think it comes in five different colours, is the perfect(tummy hiding) length & has those fab sleeves which come down to your knuckles & fend off frostbite whilst buggy pushing!
There’s been a whole new buzz on Instagram this past week surrounding dungarees! Do you have a pair? Do you love them/hate them? I absolutely love the ones I bought from fatface in March last year, I just need the weather to be *slightly* warmer before I’m brave enough to get my ankles(cankles) out on the school run, I predict a new trend on the horizon!
If you’re in need of a wardrobe update, id definitely suggest popping into Fatface to check out their latest offerings!
Lots of love,
Fatface very kindly sent me these clothes for the purpose of this review but all opinions are my own, & genuine xx
