I don’t know about you, but I find myself wearing the same thing time and time again. I wear a baggy but comfy dress, a cardigan and leggings. During the week, when I’m all about school runs and errands, this uniform works. I add trainers for most of the year, boots during the winter. But I’m 40 now, and getting tired of dressing like I did at 32. I want to look a bit more sophisticated and more polished, while still remaining relatively casual and comfortable. So, when the team at George at Asda challenged me to mix up my #styleYOUniform, I had to give it a try.
As a Stay-At-Home-Mum, I don’t have loads of money to spend on my wardrobe, so I normally just buy clothes for nights out and weekend outings. I don’t normally treat myself to weekday clothes, bar the occasional sweatshirt (I love sweatshirts). And recently, I haven’t wanted to get any new clothes, as I have put on all the weight I lost last year (20 pounds, eek!). But with being 40, I am trying to be kinder to myself and not waste energy beating myself up over my weight gain.
So back to my new outfit. I picked out a Floral Tie Dress (£14.00) and 2 Pack 3/4 Length Leggings (£10). Despite the tie at the waist, the dress has a shift-shape, and is very comfortable. The dress-leggings combo looks quite similar to my usual everyday style (I love a flowery dress), so I decided to go out of my comfort zone and picked out a blazer. A blazer! This Embossed Blazer (£16) looks chic and much more expensive than it costs. The angled zip pocket makes it look very modern. Plus I added the fun and elegant Wedge Heeled Gladiator Sandals (£14), which completed the look. The sandals are very comfortable (though not as comfy as my beloved trainers) and could easily be worn in the day or in the evening.
I feel that my new outfit has taken my everyday mummy style to a new level. Even though some of the elements are similar to what I wear, it feels more polished. Husband and both of our children even made comments about how much they liked what I was wearing, which made me feel really good. So, what do you think of my new #styleyouniform?
I was asked to pick out some items from George at Asda for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
