Summer Mama Style

If you are a regular reader you will already know that we recently went away on a family cruise holiday. It was our first family holiday, just the three of us and I was really excited. I had been planning my holiday wardrobe for weeks.

This holiday was all about our little girl. I wanted to be able to run around and play without fear that my bum was on show or my boob was going to fall out. I wanted practical outfits, that were comfortable too. I had no one to impress. I packed jumpsuits, big pants and midi dresses that I could (safely) wear without a bra!
After putting together my wardrobe for weeks, I decided to try on all of my holiday outfits a few days before I packed. I was so pleased with them all. They were all so comfy whilst still being stylish and flattering. We did a lot of walking on our port days so I packed flat, sensible shoes and trainers. Despite this I didn’t feel like a frump. I loved every, single outfit and couldn’t wait to start wearing them.
It’s hard to explain, but these outfits make me feel comfortable with my body. I feel invincible. Who knew going bra less could make a mama feel so sexy!
I filmed a summer mama style look book which is up on my Youtube channel so you can see what outfits I chose to take away with me.
If this is your thing be sure to follow me on instagram and twitter where I post my day to day outfits.Which outfit is your favourite? Will you be picking up any of these pieces for summer?

    It's hard to feel good and not frumpy but being a mama you need to be practical!

    I'll check out ur video this evening when I have more time.
    I love the dress in the last photo and the denim skirt in the first is goergous. I wish I could wear stripes well but they don't suit me and make me look bigger than I am unfortunately.

      Sure you can go braless. It just depends on the outfit. I think it's a state of mind more than anything, you just have to brazen it out xx

    It's so important for clothes to be comfortable but that doesn't mean they can't also look good. I hope you enjoyed your cruise.
