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’.
I find that many mum’s clothe themselves because of what they need to do, rather than who they are, so the duties of the day take precedent where as I firmly believe you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort, and I can show you how.
Adopting an easy outfit formula such as the below illustrates, means you can look stylish whilst still being able to run around after your kid/s!
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 most of my clients actually!
Statement tee + midi skirt + jacket + flat shoe = flattering, stylish, comfortable & practical outfit examples!
Personal Shopper – Pregnancy Wardrobe
The first way I can help improve your fashion style is from the very fist stages of pregnancy. Each trimester brings a new challenge to an ever evolving baby bump and making sure you have the right pieces to see you through is key to making carrying a child, that bit easier.

The Importance Of A Colour Consultant
Simply dressing in the most flattering colours for your features can have a profoundly positive effect on your self image for 2 reasons:
- The correct shades make us appear like we’ve had a good nights sleep when in fact, we haven’t!
- Studies have shown that wearing certain hues directly effect our mood such as sunny yellow and tranquil blue
- Understanding your most flattering hair colour to make you look your best which generally means a tweak of your current shade
- Teaching you what hues to wear on your face as a beauty makeover can knock years off of us!
A COLOUR CONSULT is the most transformative service and one you can benefit from regardless of the shape of your body, whether during pregnancy or after giving birth. Read the vital role colour plays when creating our PERSONAL BRAND.
Dressing Your New Body Type
Post-partum we can have a different body shape and it’s vital to understand this 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 was amazed to get a ‘fat back’ whilst carrying my daughter and it’s something is struggle to shift even years later!

Becoming a parent can also mean we have a new, limited budget and even less time to ourselves but we still want to look well-put-together, like we are in control or our new life…. when sometimes the opposite is true!
Addressing & Dressing Your New Role
Identifying your lifestyle is they factor when choosing clothes. I know myself that I lust after certain pieces but I know the reality of when I will wear them is rare. However a big part of my personal styling service is to show you how to get lost more wear out of that section of your wardrobe we call ‘best’, see my instagram examples here on my facebook page.

Whatever your situation, I teach you quick, easy fashion tips to elevate your mum uniform from ‘mumsy’ to stylish, all within your budget.
You may well have pieces in your wardrobe that you used to wear to the office but you feel no longer serve you as a stay-at-home mum such as a classic button through white shirt like the below. However, I approach it with new eyes and think about styling it differently to suit your new, more casual lifestyle whilst looking on trend.
Fashion Tips – 3 ways to wear a classic white shirt
- Coffee date / shopping
- Grocery shopping, park, chores, school pick-up (& because you’re layering a top over the shirt there’s not need to iron it!)
- Girls night / date night (& only the sleeves & collar need ironing!)
