Fashionable & mum rarely sit next to each other in a sentence. When looking for everyday clothes my agenda is normally to find something comfortable that washes well. Since being on Maternity Leave with a very strict budget my choice of designer clothes have been Oxfam & Heart Foundation but on Monday I dug deep into my penny jar and went upmarket to Primark. I basically had £30 to update my wardrobe with a few key pieces that could be swapped & changed for all occasions.Having stood & read all the fashion magazines in WH Smith this gave me an idea to see how I could use 1 item for 3 different occasions.All 3 looks are based on a dark denim skirt £10.00 from Primark. I have added a few bits from my own wardrobe to help style the looks fully.
• Occasion 1 – Lunch With The Girls
Stylish but comfortable this look would work for any day occasion. For the breast feeding ladies simply add a vest top underneath for easy but unexposed access.
• Occasion 2 – Night Out
The top is a total bargain at £6 and can be worn on or off the shoulder.With the skirt being knee length you can get away with baring a bit of décolletage. Add a simply necklace to finish off the outfit.
• Occasion 3 – School Run ( quick outfit to pull on )
This outfit is for a mummy on the run when you have 3 minutes to get dressed and get out the door. In winter add a jumper & some black tights. I had to have the sequin pumps, they Jazz up any boring outfit .
I hope this gives you some inspiration & shows that looking “fashionable” doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Let me know if you like this type of blog and it will give me an excuse to go shopping again 😉
