Mum, Mom, Mummy, Mama, Mother. Whatever we call ourselves, it’s pretty awesome to be a mum in 2015.
We knew that already though, right? And whether mums are having a ‘fashion moment’ or not, I’d say The Motherhood Club is the best club to be a member of, its members are utterly privileged, but it’s also the hardest, most exhausting, all-consuming, life-changing club of all.
But why is it so great to be a mum right now? Because there’s never been so much choice for us and some seriously amazing mothers are taking our parenting status and running with it…
1. Showing your motherhood status is hot right now
Not just the ideal way to stop the world and his wife expressing their surprise in conversation at my being a mother, these tees and sweatshirts are a must-have for any hip mama worth her salt. Seen on celebs, bloggers, and the coolest mothers on the block, all profits from the sale of Mother designs go to Women for Women International – an amazing charity that helps women in 8 war-torn regions rebuild their lives through training programmes.

3. The best fashion bloggers are mums
As much as I love to covet the style of those fashion bloggers who have become global stars in the world of style (I’m looking at you, Susie Bubble and Atlantic|Pacific) , it’s stylish mamas that really inspire me.
Putting together a wardrobe that will take you from mum duty to office appropriate, or school run to date night? Now that’s a challenge that mum style bloggers take on, and win.
