I don't know about you, but I have to have a few go-to "comfy" outfits. They are usually leggings, chunky socks and a baggy jumper or skirt. I don't do "lounging around in tracksuits". I want to be comfy, but I also want to look nice. After all, with all the deliveries we get at our house (Royal Mail know us very well...) it's more than likely I will have to open the door and I don't want to scare off the delivery person! Ethan does that for me by appearing at the door butt naked..
I digress... Comfortable outfits are essential, especially for a Mum, but they don't have to look slobby. A few weeks ago in TKMaxx I found a new addition to my "comfort" section of my wardrobe. A beautiful angora mix jumper dress that is absolute heaven to touch and wonderful to wear. Even better, it has swallows printed all over it!! It's so flowy and light, I feel like a bird when I wear it!
Although it's baggy and slouchy, I feel it's still quite flattering. Very important when you have large breasts I think because otherwise baggy tops and dresses can make you look a bit sack-like. I have worn this dress with a waist belt, but mostly I like it just as it is. It hangs beautifully.
What do you think?

Thanks for reading, oh, and before I forget, if you have any trendy children in your life and want to show them off, I hold a weekly linky on Tuesdays called Trendy Toddler Tuesday. It's not just for babies and toddlers, all you have to do is compose a blog post with some photos of your children and then link up over on my blog and you may get some new followers! I'm always looking for people to join in, it's a great linky but needs some love.
I love that jumper, you should be my personal shopper I have no style at the moment xReplyDelete
Hehe, I'd be happy to be your personal shopper! xxDelete
LOVE your comfy outfit - we ALL have those comfy days for comfort things, don't we? I also wear oversized shirts and leggings or jeggings. And sit around sipping coffee or tea with my laptop. Those are the BEST days!ReplyDelete
