Glamour. Many people comment on my style and say I often look glamours (don’t look at me now peoples). Style comes effortless to me. I find pleasure in dressing nice but I don’t place a lot of value on material things; balance is important. I’m an all or nothing person; either I’m dressing up a storm or wearing a 10-year-old jumper and jeans.
My Style. My Style is a new series I’ll be doing here at Be A Fun Mum. My Style is about making the most of your wardrobe without spending a fortune. It’s about finding the balance between dressing nicely and being obsessed with fashion. My Style is about finding your own style.
Self-conscious. After my first two pregnancies, I wore my jeans out of hospital; however, during my last two pregnancies, I gained extra weight that I’m still trying to shake. I don’t like my body, and I’m not comfortable with how I look. In saying that, I don’t feel pressure to be thin — I’m totally over that. I’ve come to terms with my body shape; I’ll never be petite; I’m strong. What I do need to do is focus on being healthy. I’m working on it.
Memories. I remember Mum visiting my school, and I always felt so proud of her. I felt proud because she always made an effort to dress beautifully and all my friends would comment, “Your Mum is so beautiful.” I felt proud because she was so kind and all my friends would say, “Your Mum is so nice.” I too want my children to be proud of me.
This is My Style. I love dressing up. I love dressing down. I often wear the same outfit two days running and hope I don’t meet anyone who notices. My style is elegant with dash of edge. It’s pretty meets spunky. It’s simple with a variety of texture. I’m often consertative but am prepared to take risks. I love finding vintage and handmade style pieces. I don’t have a lot of clothes, I just know how to make the most of my wardrobe. My Style says me.
