Putting some yummy back in this mummy #3

Time to share with you what I’ve been wearing lately in an attempt to put a little bit of yummy back in this mummy. I have 2 large bin bags of clothes ready for the charity shop as a result! I’ll probably go looking for ‘that’ stripy top or really ‘need’ that wee black skirt no doubt, but there comes a point when you just need to ‘let it go’! πŸ˜‰

I’m sorry to say that the photos have not improved.Β  I still look as awkward as ever, and I still haven’t found a mirror in the house where I can take a selfie which has good light, but it is what it is and hopefully things will improve……at some point!

First, I want to share this little pic with you.11203079_10150517440334957_4693535162239774598_n Not exactly an inspirational fashion shot, but one that has to be shared.Β  A few weeks ago, myself and my 2 sisters took L to her first Disney on Ice show. She absolutely loved it! She sat with her wee fists all clenched with excitement as she watched.Β  It really brought her a lot of joy. As we walked out of the arena she said, “that was so much fun!” It also gave me a totally valid reason to purchase and wear this Frozen top!

Last Saturday, me and my sisters took ourselves off shopping for the day and I made a few sneaky little purchases. I was shopping for hubs birthday, but I allowed myself a few treats too!

These jeans…you know the ones….the ones all the cool kids are wearing….the ones with the rips….the ones that your 5 year old cannot understand! “You bought them with thoseΒ rips in them already? But they need to go in the bin” I got a pair – actually I got 2 – this cream pair and a baby pink pair. I have to say I am loving them. Although it does mean, I have to shave my knees and tan them much more frequently than I’d like πŸ˜‰

I also treated myself and L to new bags – Β£10 for them both. Primark we salute you!

I really love L’s, she already has it filled with Moshi Monsters and those miniature Disney Princess dolls that Sainsbury are now selling!


Β My bag is incredibly soft and in my new favourite colour! It’s a very practical mumsy sort of bag, but sometimes you just need to be practical, right?!


Another 2 outfits….in that same colour. I need to step away from the baby pink!



I had mentioned before that my sister had been having a bit of a wardrobe clear out too.Β  The next couple of pictures feature items that I have been given and am recycling. Jill is much, much more fashionable than me and I’m never too sure if I can carry off things the way she can!


A bit of clashing and mixing of prints – a magazine told me it’s all the rage this season?!



I wore this outfit yesterday! I was clearly not expecting the snow / hail / sleet that we got!

Looking back over these pictures, I can see a definite them emerging! Must try a few different colours this week.

Off now with my 2 black bags, hopefully there’ll be another bag next week πŸ˜‰

  1. Looking gorgeous Karen! I’m too old for so much these days – namely ripped jeans! I love a bit of floral though and those bracelets are so cute πŸ™‚ Liking your sister’s stripes too – very ‘in’ at the moment. x
