Mama Style || August Favourites

This time of year for me is when dressing gets interesting. I'm so excited for chilly days, I love Autumn clothes so have started shopping towards that. August though had some really lovely weather so I was forced into summer clothing, I wore shorts for the first time since I was a child and even a skimpy swimming costume on the beach! I've picked up some new chunky necklaces as well which I'll share soon as I finally have no babies to hang off them!

I did do some good shopping at the end of August, some sale bits that can be worn all year round and the most dreamy jacket...

You may have guessed already that I'm a little bit in love with my new mustard jacket from New Look. This jacket comes in a few colours and frankly I wanted to buy every one! This was £39.99 which for me is quite a lot but the same in River Island was £60 and not such a good colour range. I haven't worn it yet I just keep looking at it and trying it on!

Here's all my favourites from this month though from wearing and shopping. Let me know what you think! I'm loving my high waisted jeans from Peacocks. These 'Rita' jeans are in the sale right now for £10, with a great fit especially for big bums and plenty of stretch. I'm obsessed with finding long tees that can be worn with jeans and leggings and look really good styled with the biker jacket.

I'm never without a hoodie, they are just the best for everyday cosiness and likewise my vintage head scarves cover a multitude of hair sins and I love them with quite a huge collection growing too! My Vans backpack has been a godsend. We're not using the pram ever so much now and I hate carrying stuff as it kills my back. Backpacks have always been something I've loved and this one if fab with lots of pockets, my favourite ever pattern and monochrome colours. I can carry all our 'stuff' for days out without aching after and having my hands free to chase the kids!

Although I'm back on the dieting bandwagon, I'm feeling more confident in what to wear and my body than I have in years. It's been hard deciding what to wear as a thirty something mother and I've become to realise that I don't really care what people think, I'll wear what I want even if at times it's similar to a 16 year old me slumming it at college! Wear what makes you happy.

What were your staples/shopping favourites last month?
