If you asked any woman whether their wardrobe changed after becoming a Mum – they’d all unanimously say YEEESSS, ABSOLUTELY ! It’s no secret when we transition into Motherhood, a lot of things change – and that includes what we enjoy wearing, what makes us feel comfortable and what doesn’t result in a mass flashing at the playground when you bend down to pick up Harry !
You still want to look good and feel good – because clothing is a form of self-expression. If what we put on delivers functionality AND makes us feel pulled together - it really sets us up for the day ✨
Here are our top 5 Mum-robe must haves – that’ll make you feel fabulous for Kindy drop offs, school pick-ups or for that playdate at the playground!
1. MUM JEANS
Why did we not know about Mum jeans, aka high-waited jeans, pre-kid(s)!? They are not only SUPER comfortable, but the high waist so perfectly pulls in the tummy – flattering silhouette ! Also, when you bend down to pick up that precious bunny for your little one (for the one-hundredth time that day!), fear not of the whole world seeing your underwear!
Here are a few brands and styles we love:
Tees are a wardrobe essential. So easy to wear, goes with just about everything and you can never have too many! We love the basic, well cut tees in white, black, marle grey, khaki and also have a bit of fun with statement/bold prints.
Check out these brands – stylish, well-tailored and quality made:
Oh how much we love sneakers ! Back in the days, you could have contemplated running in heels. Now, the thought of squeezing your feet into anything remotely high (even for an evening out), you need a little practice! Well thank goodness for uber stylish sneakers choices out there – comfort meet style. Perfect with dress, denim, shorts, skirts - short or maxi. Not to mention your feet will thank you! I A pair of classic white sneakers is a must and so worthwhile the investment as it can work with so many outfits.
Sunglasses are a great to instantly polish a look…and to cover up tired eyes with the broken sleep you may have had the night(s) before. And with us spending more time outdoors in playgrounds, parks, ferreting kids to and from Kindy/school – they are a must have. Do experiment with different shapes, colours – go outside the square, you’d be surprised what you’d discover.

5. HANDS-FREE BAG
Crossbody Bags and backpacks are a huge trend and they’re MADE for Mums! Means when you’re out with your little one(s), it leaves your hands free – as you never know when you’ll need to stop them from running off or need to reach for the trusty wet wipes. Invest in a quality, well-crafted crossbody bag or backpack that can withstand the daily wear and tear of running around after little people.
