Mama on the road: Ali

Introducing a new feature for cocomamastyle, Mama on the road finds mums out and about doing, well, mummy type things and sneaks a peek at their outfit and finds out what their go-to brands are for their wardrobes and those of their little ones.

First up we have Ali who is mum to Felix, 3 and Leo, 1 and lives in South East London with her husband Nick. Cocomama caught up with Ali on a family day out for a picnic and museum visit.

Where’s your outfit from?
Checked scarf,
Breton top, Boden
Jacket, Kew 159
Jeans, Uniqlo
An eBay bargain

What are the staple brands in your wardrobe?
Gap, Uniqlo, Levis and Topshop.

Where do you shop for your sons?
H&M, Next, Boden and Gap kids.

What one item in your mum-wardrobe could you not live without?
The one item I couldn’t live without is my scarf – although actually it should be ‘scarves’ – as I often get cold and not only do they help keep me warm they also pull together a hastily grabbed outfit (which is inevitably the case when I’m trying to get ready in the morning) and add a splash of colour to my face.

How has your style changed since becoming a mum?
My style hasn’t changed a huge amount, I’ve always worn fairly practical clothes and have never had the pain threshold for heels so usually spend my day in plimsolls or flat boots. I do have less time to shop for clothes and mostly shop online so I do make more considered purchases nowadays. I’d love to wear a jumpsuit one day though…

Now there’s an idea for a post; Trends on Trial: The jumpsuit. Watch this space! What’s in your staple mum-wardrobe? Has your style changed since becoming a mum? Do comment below and share your views.
