Becoming a parent is wonderful thing, yet at the same time it means that we focus 100% of our energy and time on our kids, leaving very little time (or no time) for ourselves. We barely have time to have a shower, to apply our make-up or time to select a decent outfit that isn’t covered in baby sick or saliva from the previous day.
Being a mum doesn’t mean that you need to let your standards slip, and it certainly doesn’t mean you need to dress up to the nines to make yourself feel good. It is possible to feel good in comfy and practical clothing, that is also stylish.
We’ve recently teamed up with Simply Be who have so many different styles of clothing for you. It could be your everyday clothes, your clothes for a night out, or clothes to make you feel that little bit special if you’re having a date night at home.
For me my style is simple. I practically live in jeans and a jumper, or jeans and a T-Shirt (depending on the weather), and Simply Be allows me to do that but in a stylish way.
I have a secret love for sweatshirts and my wardrobe is literally bursting at the seams with them. So when I saw this Red Leopard Print Star Sweatshirt I had to have it. I love the leopard print star against the red of the sweatshirt, making it really easy to team up with black or blue jeans. The sweatshirt is made from a really soft fabric and is snuggly to wear on a cold winter’s day. It’s comfy enough to wear around the house whilst looking after the kids, and adds a little piece of glamour to spending the day at home.
My love of stars continue with the Grey Marl Sequin Star Placement T-Shirt and I really like the shape of this. It is slightly unusual in that it has slightly longer sleeves than your average T-Shirt, and has a baggier fit to hide the mum tum of mine. The other great thing about this T-Shirt is that the sequins are really eye-catching for my baby, and it gives him something to look at.
With comfort on my mind particularly as I spend so much time crawling around on the floor with the kids, a pair of Supersoft Black Jeggings are ideal. Just like the sweatshirt these are supersoft and fairly high waisted. The length is perfect for my long (ish) legs and I love how the jeggings nip in at the ankle, meaning that there are no baggy ankles with these.
Lastly the Head Over Heels By Dune Ballerinas shoes are surprisingly comfortable. They literally go with everything; whether that’s a pair or trousers, a skirt or a dress, they will not let you down. The snakeskin effect give these shoes an on trend look.
I’ll be honest here, I was really surprised by how many nice items of clothing there are at Simply Be. The range is huge and there is something for everybody. There are so many snuggly knitted jumpers and boots that are ideal for winter, all at really good value prices (plus their January sale is running right now…..so go, go, go).
So if you’re on the lookout for some new additions for your wardrobe this Winter, don’t overlook Simply Be.
