Hey everyone, I hope you’re having a lovely start to the week. I still can’t believe we’re in October already. Where is this year going?
Anyway, I thought it was about time we had a new series on the blog, and well, here it is. Welcome to Mama Style Monday where I will share with you my style (if you can call it that, I suppose).
Fashion is very important to me, so much so, I studied it at university. Although I don’t profess to be an expert in the matter, I thought it would be great to share with you any bargains I find and the styles I love wearing.
So, here we have the first instalment. I hope you like it!
Since becoming a mum, I’ve found that I’m drawn to different items of clothing than I would have previously worn. Maybe it’s the adjustment to my new body and trying to figure out what suits my post-baby figure. Or maybe it’s the fact I have more time on my hands to see what everyone else is wearing and finding myself lusting over what they’re all sporting.
Or maybe I’m having a bit of a quarter-life crisis? That’s how I kind of felt when I bought this denim pinafore. I don’t think I’ve worn one of these since I’d just started walking, or if I’ve even ever owned one. My mam will have to answer that one. Nevertheless, I love it.
I’d always seen people wearing this sort of outfit and I’d swoon over it, but always thought that would never suit me and my shape. But I was so surprised when I tried it on and I loved it. There’s something so charming about a pinafore dress, and who can resist one in denim?
I paired this £13 Primark dress with a bargain shirt I bagged myself in the sale last month in Primark too. This £5 embroidered top is absolutely stunning, but again something I wouldn’t have ever gone for pre-pregnancy.
I’ve always been a sucker for embroidery but never thought this frilly top would be something for me. I think I’ve let go of some of my fashion fears since becoming a mum. I think less about what is safe to wear and now focus on what I want to look right, and make it work for me.
This outfit oozes feminine appeal and makes me feel more my age. It’s so easy to get caught up in the world of being a mum that sometimes I forget I’m still young too. Even though it’s not a twirly skirt, it makes me want to spin around and pop daisy’s in my hair.
What was that about a quarter-life crisis?
