What Mama Wore

What Mama Wore:

Coat - Dorothy Perkins (in the 2012 January sale - £14!)
Cardigan - Start the Bus Jumper sale
Dress - Vintage Christmas present from Tom 
Belt - Primark
Badge - Topshop 
Boots - c/o Hunter

Tom is pretty fantastic at buying gifts, and at buying me clothes. Christmas just gone I got no less than three vintage dresses that I love. I cant really wear the other two until I finish breastfeeding but this one gets a lot of use. 
The owl badge is probably the last thing I've bought in Topshop and that was almost four years ago now. Whilst I actually like the look of a lot of their styles still every time I step in there I feel a million years old, maybe its a mum thing! 

This cardigan will always be the best three pounds I've ever spent and I've lived in these Hunters since they arrived. So comfy!

lol Im 44 and still get lots of my stuff in TopShop but you do have to weed out the rather more errrr. 'young' styles and their designers seem to think no one has boobs :)

I love your pose in the second pic down, you look like a styled up Wonder Woman! Which ain't far off. ;)

And urgh, I know what you mean about Topshop. I love going in there for inspiration, but so much of their stuff is 'fleeting fashion' and I don't have the funds or the time to be chasing trends like that anymore.

Kim- haha! Yes I know what you mean, I like some of the cuts of the dresses but 'fleeting fashion' would be a good way to describe a lot of their stock xx
