Autumn Mama Style // Boots, Slogan Tees & Hoisery

As much as I love summer and all the fun it brings to my wardrobe I really embrace the colder months. Sure, I’ll moan about the rain like all good Brits but I love snuggly jumpers, dark evenings and hot spiced drinks. A/W ’17 is looking pretty extra to me with bold red outfits, slogan tees, amazing tights and over the top embellishments dominating the runways. Can I get a ‘hell yes’ for all of this?!

I’m really trying to move towards a more minimalist capsule wardrobe so I’m chuffed that a lot of ‘what’s hot’ for the coming months can actually be put together from my current wardrobe. As someone who is basically addicted to feminist slogan tees I’m glad to see they won’t be going out of style anytime soon. Not that I’d stop wearing them anyway…

 

 

So who’s with me? Oversized jumpers, berry lips, trusty boots and denim for days. That’s my standard look I think to be honest and with the addition of some plush scarves and cool tights I’ll be brought bang up to trend.

Like a lot of parents I am terrible for spending most of my disposable income on Luisa, specifically on her wardrobe. I often joke to Matt that we shouldn’t have art on her walls, we should just hand up her clothes sane as they cost an arm and a leg. What can I say, I’m a sucker for expensive knits. I am getting better at remembering there’s a ‘me’ in motherhood – somewhere, if you rearrange the letters! So recently i’ve been treating my bad self, on a budget of course. The joy with online shopping is that there’s nearly always a good offer somewhere. I can keep an eye on retailers I love like Boden, Cheap Monday and Vans to see when they have a sale on.

I feel like the older I get the more I really want quality pieces and I spend a lot of time thinking, asking friends and reading reviews before I invest. In days gone buy I was happy to have a huge cheap wardrobe but now I want a streamlined collection where I can put my hand on anything and know it fits, looks good and feels great. Of course that can be a little costlier but in the long run it pays off to be choosy. No more heading into town every Saturday and dropping £60 in Primark. Well, maybe the odd time…

    Yes I can’t wait for Berry Lips. I’ve been lusting after that selfish mother sweater for ages. It’s perfect for winter and is so christmassy x
