Help me, I'm in a style rut. I have lost my mojo a little bit.

I'm 33yo, a DM to 2 dcs (age 7yo and almost 4yo) and am 12w pg with dc3. I'm tall and usually a size 10, but obviously my shape will change over the coming months.

I entered into a bit of a style rut a few months ago, before I conceived, so it's not just to do with my pg. I seem to live in my parka coat (which is too tight now, but I don't have another waterproof coat for school pick-ups!), skinny jeans, boots and a jumper. I'm so bored with my look and I feel frumpy. I enjoy doing my make-up - I don't wear loads; I like to wear eyeliner, shadow, mascara, lip gloss and a bit of blusher. I am bored with my make-up look and routine. If I use darker eyeshadow, it just doesn't look right, so I'm stuck with the same neutral shades.

I went shopping for some maternity clothes and have bought nice ones, mostly for when my bump is showing for spring/summer. For now, I'm still in maternity leggings and maternity skinnies ...

I like a boho/vintage/bit rock n' roll look (I like clothes that Kate Moss and Kate Hudson wear, for example) but it doesn't always fit with looking after 2 dcs and the more practical clothes you need! I want to look good, though.

I've booked in at the hairdressers to have some highlights done to try and 'lift' my look, so that's a start. I'd be grateful for any advice for some pick-me-ups and ideas for how to get myself out of this!

H&M is good for that slouchy top, skinny jeans look. Zara has good boho tops etc.

Problem is, everything seems to be in fashion these days.

I did this;

And found it a real eye opener.
