Is it time to inject a bit of grown-up glamour into my everyday wardrobe? {Sponsored Post}

by Insomniac Mummy on April 15, 2013

I sometimes honestly believe that when I gave birth to my kids, somehow my fashion sense escaped along with my placenta!

Don’t get me wrong; I was never a fashionista, often far from it. But, I had my moments. I knew my figure and my mind well enough to know what to avoid and what I could just about get away with. I was confident with my choices, perhaps a confidence that came with youth.

Fast forward ten years and suddenly I found myself still wandering about in my comfy maternity jeans and billowy tops, six months after the main event. Truth be told, those maternity clothes were easy to live in. There were a few favourites I was reluctant to part with two years down the line!

When the sleepless nights had taken their toll, it was really easy to forget that I wasn’t just somebody’s mum. Somewhere underneath those baggy tops and stretchy jeans was an individual, the me I used to be, screaming to be let out!

I’m holding my hands up and admitting it was very easy for me to become ‘mumsy’. While the mums at the school gates may be able to rock a pair of wet look leggings, I’m more likely to be in jeans or smart grey trousers and a black wrap top. Yes, I can practically hear your yawns from here.

So I’m thinking that perhaps now is the time for me to be a bit braver? To be a bit less feint-hearted with my colour and style choices and become a (semi) dedicated follower of fashion? The only thing is, given my previous form, I have absolutely no idea how to switch it up a little.

Tell me, how do you manage to inject a bit of grown-up glamour into your everyday wardrobe? Trust me, this mumsy mum needs a little help…

Heels and some killer cleavage. No seriously! When my daughter was small and breastfeeding I stayed away from anything low cut for fear of her pulling down my top in public, so when I want to feel grown up, now that she is grown, I wear a nicely fitted top with a low neck or some high heels, as again it makes me feel like an ‘adult’ and is a nice change from my TOMS shoe obsession!

I am so unstylish now it’s not funny. I used to be the girl in the glam dresses, killer heels and elegant hair…I now mostly look like I’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards now. BUT I am determined to make a change, starting with something easy putting on concealer just so I don’t look so knackered! I need to lose a bit of weight but then I’m looking forward to wearing some nice clothes again :)
