As the notorious Dylan would day, “Oh how the times are a changin’.”
I love looking back at my mom’s old photos when she was my age and seeing her poofy permed hair, big shoulder pads and red nails (..that she still wears to this day..) heading off to her job in the city. It’s strange, the photos make me feel nostalgic for a time that I didn’t even experience.
Funnily enough, a lot of women’s work fashion in 2016 is inspired by our mums.

The times have changed but only slightly and I love it!
Since returning to work from mat leave I’ve realised that I’ve had also had to make a change. Not only mentally, you know, from baby world to work world, but also in wardrobe because, surprise surprise, I have lost a bit of weight! I also want to be viewed as a chic and successful manager, rather than a snot-infested, cereal-haired new mum ; ). The only problem is that I do not have the dolla bills I used to have pre-baby, but I found these amazing sales that have some of my favourite brands like French Connection. They have the perfect selection of chic work clothes that don’t hurt my bank account. My wallet is much happier and my bum feels much sleeker. Win win.
Hopefully one day my future daughter can look back at my photos and feel nostalgic for a time she hadn’t experienced. (…if I have another baby that’s a girl which at this moment is feeling like a big fat NO ; )…. )
