What to wear when the winter chill hits....
The best way to stay warm and stylish as a mummy is to master the art of layering! The layering trick will get you from outside in the park on cold winter days, to stopping off at a cafe for a warm coffee before heading home to feed the kids and put them to bed in the afternoon for a well earned rest for all.
Here are some of our top picks.
Ankle boots with a stacked heel are perfect for everyday practical mum business. But keeps you looking stylish while out and about. I love this Elk Boot with orange detail for a pop of colour. Another great boot is Beltrami Italian boots that are great quality and so comfy.
Blue Jeans from Mavi in faded blue biker style will go from weekday to weekend and with heels or trainers. So easy, stylish and versatile.
A little jumper can go effortlessly under a big winter coat. This is where the layering comes in to play ladies...take off the coat and the scarf when you stop in at the cafe for your coffee for easy, comfy style.
And for the scarf make sure this is your statement piece with a pop of colour or a stand out print. Your choice of scarf can take your outfit from drab to fab in an instant. Be brave when buying a scarf and don't be afraid to buy lots of them....perfect if you're breast feeding also for some added privacy.
Duffle Coat from Country Road is a no brainer, super warm and never dates, this one will be in your wardrobe for ever!
We have teamed this outfit with the After Baby Bag in Navy leather. This bag is perfect for the mum with toddlers as its just a little bit smaller than our Baby Bags but still with all the pockets you need for all the kid stuff. Our popular Nico tote in Navy is a good option if you need more space in your baby bag.
Weekends are for taking it easy and lounging about so its best to keep your style to match.
Slouchy pants are perfect for weekends (although, weekdays works for me too sometimes!). Find a pair like these with great pocket detail and you won't feel too casual if you are out and about.
Add a warm slouchy jumper and you are on your way to a great relaxed weekend feel. A warm vest when heading out will keep you covered up.
Trainers are always a good weekend staple. I like these Adidas Stan Smith white ones as they're a bit girly and they really do go with everything.
Another great wardrobe staple is the coatigan... just do it – you will not regret this purchase…I have this exact one and would wear it every day if I could!
