How To Create A Casual Look That Will Turn Heads

*Collaborative Post

As a parent, a casual look suits me. I can move about easily, I can bend down and pick up the toys for the 10th time that day, I can chase a toddler down the street and I can feel comfortable whilst doing it. However, when we think of casual we often think about it being drab but it really doesn’t have to be this way. Here’s how to create a casual look that will turn heads.

I recently attended a blogging conference in Manchester which not only held amazing sessions to help us to learn more about certain aspects of the job, it also provided an opportunity for brands and PR’s to connect with us all and I was lucky enough to meet Nicole from Ziggle. I was immediately drawn to all of the gorgeous baby products and accessories on her stall but when I saw funky raccoon leggings I was in love! I also thought you guys would love this range too which is why I wanted to collaborate with Ziggle in order to bring together a review combined with a giveaway for you all.

Maternity Wear: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

*Gifted Product

I have such a love-hate relationship with maternity wear. Don’t you find that there is such a gap in the market? We start to gain water and weight from before 12 weeks yet all the maternity wear is aimed at the size you are from around 7 months. Nothing fits from your normal wardrobe and you end up traipsing the shops for the very limited range of maternity clothes available to you. ‘Oh you can buy it online’ you hear time and time again but I don’t always want to buy online, I want to go into a shop, look at the sizes and try them on! And why are the styles mostly floaty, high necked, v-necked and with unflattering cut sleeves? Pregnant women are still the same people and even though their bodies change their tastes and fashion sense don’t; we want to feel like us as much as we can!

SpeedBump Maternity Activewear Review

*Gifted Items

Staying fit and healthy during this pregnancy was something I had decided upon even before I fell with this little guy. I wouldn’t say that my first pregnancy was unhealthy but I wasn’t partaking in any exercise classes and I really did use being pregnant as an excuse to take things easy. This all changed after he was born and I have been actively going to workout classes since Jake was about a year old so my fitness and strength have both increased in the last 3 years. This has meant that since finding out I was expecting with baby number 2 I haven’t had to alter my usual workouts of using kettlebells, Barbells, Bulgarian bags, TRX and other activities within my HIIT classes because my body is used to the level I have been working at. However, as my shape began to change and my bump began to grow I found that trying to find comfortable activewear clothing was a huge challenge. It is always tricky at the start when the bump isn’t quite big enough for over the bump clothing but is too big for normal clothes, isn’t it? There is rarely anything in-between available on the market and I discovered how restricting this can become for those who want to keep fit during their pregnancy.

Dressing for a new you- 3 images of me in new clothes

Dressing For a New You

I don’t know about the rest of you but since becoming a Mother I have somewhat felt that I have lost my identity. I have been slowly drowning in baby paraphernalia, baby feeding, caring, nappy changes, weaning, teething, baby sick and feeling exhausted. It’s probably easily done in the first year but I am 2 1/2 years on and my days have been spent wearing the same jeans several times a week, grabbing the first top I see in my wardrobe and not noticing how worn out most of my clothes actually look.
