I guess even before kids I had a set wardrobe, I am one of those annoying people that once they have found something they like I buy it in varying colours.
Now, I have a confession, over recent years my wardrobe has consisted of black and lots and lots of jogging bottoms. However, over recent months I have decided I feel crap about myself because I have giving up and spending no time on my self at all.
I know I am never going to be a fashion guru or even fashion blogger I have decided to embrace my basic wardrobe love but give it a twist of colour and style, beyond the 7 black T-shirts and jogging bottoms.
A few years ago I discovered Bonmarche and although I loved what it had on offer the last couple of years their offerings have been limited for me with too much pattern or even worse florals. A couple of months back though I decided I need to find comfy jeans and being a 27 inch leg I am somewhat limited so headed back into Bonmarche to buy their straight leg 27inch leg jeans.
I love the jeans as they are super stretchy and ideal when your on the go with a toddler but I hate the fact you can’t tumble dry them anymore *sob* however because they are comfy I have bought several pairs in black and several in dark blue. See I am must be getting better as I even bought them in 2 colours and not just black!
While buying jeans the lady that worked in my local store was wearing a lovely jumper in khaki green with beautiful gold button detailing on the shoulders and so I decided to try it myself and again found I loved it that much I needed it in other colours too!
So this is now officially my core winter wardrobe, comfy, stretchy jeans and easy to wear super soft ripple textured jumpers and I teamed it with wide fitting biker boots from Simply Be and my standard Animal across body messenger bag.
It’s probably not a high profile super stylish offering but I love it and I have had several comments on the jumpers. So for now I am embracing my easy to wear mum wardrobe and starting to feel good about myself again.
