I don't normally post here but I really need a style makeover, I'm 8 weeks post part I'm and really need to know where to start.

I normally wear cargo pants with deck shoes but am 36 and want to look like mummy who cares about her appearance.

I've started by buying some black leather ankle boots, a jumper from boohoo which is baggy and a lovely silk scarf (which I have no idea how to tie)

Help me lovely style queens smile

Forgot to add I'm a 14 but look fat with it as I'm only 5' 3".

Have you tried the M&S jeggings? I'm 5'2 and a 12 and think they are v good, for the price. I pretty much live in them plus either ankle boots or Converse, for weekend schlepping around.

Whatever you do go for washable and preferably non iron!! I have a 6mo and find jersey skirts with tights and biits great as they stay up! My jeans fall down with so mich sitting and kneeling on the floor!
Also cotton jumpers and cardigans are great- easy wash and lighter than wool.
