I'm 5 foot 8 and a size 18, im trying to lose weight and get back to a 14. Since having ds1 and 2 (3yrs and 5mths) I've found it hard to find clothes that suit me and are fit for purpose. I used to wear pretty tea dresses and nice skirts but as they were always on the short side they are indecent when chasing a toddler! For work (teaching teenagers) I like to wear skirts but I have to be careful about their length and I find smart trousers tricky as the tailored styles font quite fit me right, however I feel I need to dress more smartly. Today I went shopping for work clothes for my return after mat leave. H and m and new look clothes all look too cheap and a bit young for me. M and S stuff is all too short in the leg and body. The only shop I saw things I liked in was monsoon but it seems a bit middle aged and is really expensive! Is there a middle ground both age and price wise between h and m and monsoon? Please help! Thanks!
