Lifestyle: The best Autumn style for mums - New Look Haul


My love affair with summer is born from being a summer baby, solar powered and more energetic in the warmer months and from my love of wafting around in loose, floaty clothing. But I'm determined not to fall into a autumn/winter rut with baggy jumpers and so I am keeping the dresses going for as long as I can, by adding layers, like knits and trainers or boots.

I'd be lying if I said I had reached body acceptance since having my little ones but I refuse to just live in baggy clothes forever and I want to feel good in myself again.

New Look came up trumps with a lovely array of floaty dresses that are not too out there, are good value and have the on trend puffy sleeves. I decided to go for midi dresses as, with having young children, I still do a lot of bending and picking up, so I need to preserve my modesty!

This green gingham number is one of my favourites as it's got a lovely cross over front, flattering tied waist and romatic puffy sleeves and frill bottom. It reminds me of little house on the prairie or something. It's a lovely soft colour that can be dressed up or down and is good for the curvier figure. 

I have the shorter version of this black dress and love it, but it's definitely not practical when I'm with the kids, so I bought this midi version. It's got a sweetheart neckline, which is very flattering and the puff sleeves attract the eye away from any problem areas. It's understated, perfect for those feeling rubbish days, but can easily be pulled together into a more stylish affair with the right bag and sandels.

I love yellow. It cheers me up any time I see it or wear it and this dress is pure sunshine. It's flattering, loose and airy, perfect for autumnal days. It works just as well dressed up or down.

This white dress went viral and I was lucky to snap one up but I had to get it in a bigger size. It's got a pulled in waist and broderie anglais detail, which is so pretty. I felt it was just a little too roomy so I'm going to keep an eye out for a smaller size but if you see one grab it. Don't be afraid to add biker boots and a leather jacket to toughen it up.

No your eyes do not deceive you, this outfit is not a dress, but culottes. I thought I'd try something different as I feel in a bit of a style rut. Most times when I'm running about after the kids I favour leggings, so I thought I'd give some wide legged trousers a go, to either wear with trainers and a t-shirt or heels. I'm not completely sure about them but I'm pushing myself out of my comfort zone. 

So which is your favourite look? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - comment below .
