I am going shopping today. I need something more to wear but I don't know what, and since mat leave I'm broke so haven't been near the shops for ages. I want somethings to wear about the house and going out and about which doesnt make me look like a fright. Im not doing make up at this stage as I am more in than out. So dd is 7 months old and only some clothes fit still. I've got..

- black jeans - quite scruffy, give me annoying bumshow quite a lot.
- black leggings - not many long tops to go with so rarely wear
- denim skirt and black denim type skirt to wear with black tights - both seem a bit smart often.

So nothing then!

I'm still bf and dont have a single dress to wear that opens. I have a collection of tops and jumpers, some nicer than others. Shoe wise - tan ankle boots, black fluffy knee high boots, and some trainers that I don't wear as jeans not bootcut enough.

I like wearing tights and dresses, I used to have a good collection of warm winter dresses but that doesnt work now.

Please help. I was going to buy another jeans, but I'm not sure that will work now I've written this all down. I reckon I've got 100 to spend tops...

Red jeans be crazy? (I'll just chat to myself in the hope someone stylish comes along)

What size and shape are you?

What about some of the M and S jeggings they keep banging on about on here (they have a red colour), or some skinny cords? You could wear those with your tan ankle boots.

Or spend the money on 2 or 3 warm dresses that you can wear w tights/leggings. Saves flashing your bum and are complete outfits. Wear with your ankle boots.

But dresses difficult if she's breastfeeding.

Thanks! I'm about a size 14 I reckon, hourglass shape with hips and big boobs; now sporting the addition of a jelly belly. I used to be a 12 but am bigger all over still. I'm 32.

Will investigate cords and jeggings, dresses would be wonderful if I could find any.
