It is still really cold in the UK at the moment but I have started thinking about my Spring wardrobe as we have booked a Summer holiday. Woo hoo! We are off to Turkey this year and I wanted to start searching for a few key items for our trip. While I was looking, I found these really cute and casual items which I thought would go together quite nicely so I decided to share an OOTD with you. (Andy asked me what an ‘oouutted’ was the other day and I realised he didn’t know that OOTD stood for ‘Outfit of the Day’!)
High Neck Striped T-shirt, New Look Khaki Duster, ASOS Distressed Jeans, River Island Tortoise Shell Sunglasses, Grey Converse Trainers,
All these gorgeous bits are from ASOS as they seem to be my ‘go to’ fashion website of the moment. I am loving earthy tones and have a serious need to be casual, so I opted for this Khaki coloured duster, which is perfect for layering in this really changeable weather but can also be dressed up or down depending on your trousers and footwear. I wanted to smarten the distressed jeans with a nice pair of loafers but my gut was telling me that I really like these Converse Trainers, so lets go with that today.
I have a real love affair with sunglasses but since having children, I can never stomach spending over £100 on something so trivial. I go in to full on mummy mode and think of all the food shopping I can buy with that cash and save by choosing these funky little tortoise shell sunnies instead. Realistically though I’m sure if I chose a pair of Miu Miu’s or Dior’s that one of the children will probably end up bending the arms back anyway!
Lastly to finish off the look, I thought I would go for a red and white stripey tee because anyone who tells you that you have too many striped tops is not the type of person you need in your life!
Thanks for checking out my OOTD today. I really hope it has been a good read. Let me know if you have found any other gems from ASOS and I should be back in a couple of days with my Summer Holiday Wish Lish Haul. Bx
As the weather has turned cold and rainy recently, I’ve been looking at my wardrobe and thinking that it definitely needs a revamp. My Autumn or Winter selection of postpartum clothes is tired and just doesn’t fit as well as it used to. I have been looking at the lovely new range of mummy and baby clothes that are beginning to fill the stores and chosen some of my favourites for the upcoming seasons.
1. corduroy pinafore dress 2. triangle print leggings 3. white stripe wrap shirt 4. suede ankle boots 5. embellished vest
This adorable corduroy pinafore dress from Zara would be perfect for Annabelle with pastel pink tights and some little black boots. I have never bought any clothes from Zara before but I really like this and these cute little triangle print leggings for Heath. A lot of bloggers, like Hannah Maggs and Anna Saccone have bought their sons Zara leggings so I thought I’d take a look at what they have online.
For myself I have chosen this white stripe wrap shirt. I find the clothes in River Island can be a bit hit or miss with me. I like quite a few Autumn and Winter tops at the moment because they look tailored but not too formal for everyday wear. You also can’t go wrong with monochrome.
My footwear collection has definitely seen better days and I don’t really feel like living in my Ugg boots again this year so I have chosen these suede ankle boots from ASOS. The heel is not too high and at £40, it is a bit of a steal!
Finally, I really like this green embellished vest. I find this colour really flattering on me but I don’t have much in my wardrobe that is this colour. Oasis is one of my absolute favourite clothing stores pre and post baby.
