Being a sports mum

Is hard work! Both my boys play sport and we have training on most week nights and then games on the weekend. I am constantly on the hunt for easy,casual, comfortable but stylish clothes and outfits to wear. I love plain t-shirts, jeans, sneakers or flats and a cardi – this usually works well and is easy enough to change the look of with a different scarf, cardigan or another accessory. I have been eyeing off some harem pants from Seed, but not sure if I am ready to give them a go. Come winter cold raining mornings…..ill be honest – i do just wear track pants, a jacket and sneakers….some mornings are just too hard. I would love to hear about what you guys wear for all the kids extra curriculum activities.

Yes we still need the Boyfriend

I love the boyfriend jean. I only have 2 pairs of jeans the super skinny and the boyfriend. The days I’m feeling flat, bloated and blah the boyfriend comes out to play. They are baggier, slouchy and comfy. But they do not have to be boring – they are to be worn well. Endless options on styling them up and making them look a little glam instead of bum. And we all know jeans are tran seasonal and are most properly the one item in your wardrobe that gets worn weekly, some of us daily – we best style them well.

The boyfriend can be worn on short girls and girls with hips!  If you’re shorter and curvier, the boyfriend jeans look best with a heel. It’s also important to find a pair that fits a little snug so they’re not too baggy, as jeans do tend to stretch these days. Also worth noting is the height of the cuff, it shouldn’t sit to high, I prefer just above the ankle, not up the calf. I also prefer jeans with not too many pre rips in them, otherwise they won’t last as long and they look terrible.

Wear them with a pointed flat and top for a weekend lunch with the girls, with a sandal and tank for a warm day out & with a killer heel for a night out. Wear them with boots and cardigan in winter, options are endless just head to Pinterest for more inspiration.  Because they are quite a masculine jean, you need to pretty / girly them up with good shoes (points or strappy), and accessories to add the feminie touch, its about keeping a balance.
