This dress was added to my postpartum collection as I wanted a pretty piece that was both basic and comfortable. As pictured, vintage elements like the drop waist skirt can be found in today’s modern fashion. What I particularly love though are the simple details it offers like the pockets and adjustable spaghetti straps. The pockets allow a place for my keys and phone without rummaging through my bag while the adjustable straps make it easy to feed my bub.
There’s also a new found purpose for all my crop tops too. Rather than writing them off, I’ve layered this particular one under my dress for extra coverage. It also offers a simple yet ingenious solution to those otherwise exposed bra straps.
Finally sneakers have always been a favourite. They’ve formed part of my outfit for so many years that I didn’t even realise I was following the sporty chic trend so there you go.

Lately my wardrobe has been stocked with mummy friendly clothing. I’ve gone all sporty with shirts, elasticated waist bottoms and comfortable footwear being my favourite staples. Although impractical, on the occasion, I’ll also slip on some jewellery to complete the look.
Layering has also been my current obsession together with finding affordable clothes to dress my post baby body. Brands like Cotton On have been my go to label for basics that are not so boring and nice to my wallet. I’m loving this shirt and sweater I got from there. It’s a look that I can pull off everyday and makes me feel like a stylish momma.
What do you think?

Vintage and thrift finds is an extremely economical way to shop. The best part about shopping this way is that you are more like to score yourself one off stylish pieces that won’t hurt your bank account. Of course not all of us want to look like we’ve stepped back in time but here’s the thing…you don’t have to.
What I love doing is mixing vintage and modern pieces to create a look that’s unique, yet won’t have heads turning for all the wrong reasons. It can be hard to do this right so if you’re starting out, my suggestion is to keep the colour palette basic and add in a few simple accessories. Of course if you’re game, do add in extra colours and textures to your outfit and go bold on the hair and makeup.
Since it’s our summer, I’ve gone for simple feminine colours and created this look with a mix of modern clothes and vintage accessories. It’s comfortable, casual and does not scream over the top.
Love the look?
