When you have been in maternity clothes for what feels like an eternity, you start to feel the need for nice new ‘normal’ clothes pretty soon after you’re back on your feet. The trouble is that you’ve spent a ridiculous amount of money on the baby, so what you need is a new wardrobe for less than the cost of… well, a new wardrobe.
One of my go-to shops for comfortable, shape flattering clothes is Dorothy Perkins. I’m a huge fan of their skater style dresses which I tend to wear over leggings and with knee boots. Fortunately, they have a brilliant sale on at the moment too, so I picked some of my favourites for Autumn.
What I chose
Obviously I had to pick out my regular choice of clothes and boots, but I have also tried to pick a couple of things I wouldn’t usually wear. I think that after having a baby is a great time to break from the norm and experiment a little bit more with your clothing. Let’s face it, you felt like you were wearing the world’s biggest and possibly most unattractive clothes when you were the size of a house – now’s the time to celebrate and go off piste with your new wardrobe.
So what did I spend?
Jersey fit and flare dress in all over floral print £12.00 reduced from £22.00
Short sleeved jersey dress in blue £10.00 reduced from £18.00. Also available at the same price in red and black.
Faux leather jacket in black £32.49 reduced from £49.99
