This is when you’ve lost your style mojo and need practical fashion advice to get you back on track.
A “mummy makeover” works across many of my services and can be the main, or part, of our focus.
What Is A Mummy Makeover?
As a mum, it’s easy to forget ourselves, instead putting everyone else first. We need to rebuild our new identity relevant for our new role, effectively we need ‘re-branding’.
Becoming a parent can also mean we have a limited budget and time but we still want to look well-put-together, like we’re in control or our new life…. when sometimes the opposite is true!
I firmly believe you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort, and I can show you what that looks like
As a PERSONAL STYLIST, I find that many mum’s clothe themselves because of what they need to do, rather than representing who they are, so the duties of the day take precedent.
” Kim did SUCH a fantastic job helping me sort through and make sense of my post-baby, back to work wardrobe. Thoroughly recommend StyleSense – thanks Kim! “ – Leila Turner

Wardrobe Makeover : Restyling Office Wear For Stay-At-Home Mums
We can transform pieces in your wardrobe you used to wear to work but feel no longer serve you as a stay-at-home mum, such as this classic button through white shirt.
Restyle it to look more casual lifestyle whilst looking contemporary and put-together.
Fashion Tips – 3 ways to wear a classic white shirt
1. Coffee date / shopping / appointments
2. Grocery shopping / park / chores / school pick-up (& because you’re layering a top over the shirt there’s not need to iron it!)
3. Girls night / date night (& only the sleeves & collar need ironing!)

Mummy Makeover Outfit Formula
Statement tee + midi skirt + jacket + flat shoe
= flattering, stylish, comfortable & practical outfits!
Adopting an easy outfit formula such as the above, means you can look STYLISH & FEEL GREAT whilst still being able to run around after your kid/s! If you get hot, tie your lightweight jacket around your waist or throw in the pram!
By keeping your look edgy, you don’t appear ‘overdressed’ which is the concern of many of my female clients with kids, they don’t want to look like they have tried too hard, which is a feeling reflected through all of my clients actually!

Why Mums (or soon-to-be-mums) Benefit From A Colour Consultant
As an IMAGE CONSULTANT, I know that wearing colours that flatter YOUR particular features can have a profoundly positive effect on your self image for a few reasons:
- The correct shades freshen our complexion like we’ve had a good nights sleep when in fact, we haven’t!
- The right type of hues reduce the appearance of fine lines
- Studies have shown that wearing certain hues directly effect our mood such as sunny yellow and tranquil blue
- Understanding your most flattering hair shade is crucial as you wear your hair 24-7!
- Teaching you what hues to wear on your face as a beauty makeover can knock years off you!
- Outfitting becomes effortless once you start buying in to your colour palette as all clothes mix & match easily
” Returning to work after my first child, I needed a wardrobe revamp, on trend guidance on flattering clothes shape and colour. With a child in tow, I also had limited time to shop. The colour session was enlightening and the shopping session was a breeze with Kim to guide me and pick out clothes I would never have considered myself! I’ve been wearing all my old and new outfits that she helped me pull together. Until then, I had NEVER received compliments about my dress or style – this last year has been a huge boost to me personally! “

Dressing Your New Body Type
Post-partum we can have a different body shape and it’s vital to understand our new body type to make dressing it, easier. We may be lucky enough to revert back to the same weight on the scales, but generally the shape of your body changes and we may carry weight in areas that we’re not used to.

” I have 3 children under 3.5yrs and am working full time. Like most women my shape has changes since having my family and I have lost track of how to dress to suit my shape and be stylish but comfortable in casual clothes. Kim came over and totally transformed me. I actually can’t quite believe what just happened to my boring old clothes!?!? What a fantastic service!!! ”
