Hello everyone at Mumsnet. I've just had my little girl and have gone from a size 8 with no boobs to a (breastfeeding) size 10 with rather large ones. Before my baby I used to muse a lot over the usual Instagram girls and I could wear a lot of what they do, but now I need some new inspiration.

I've found a lot of mummy bloggers who are fantastic but I want simple, modern inspiration and find that lots of mummy bloggers talk too much about being a parent - I still want to be stylish! Does anyone else have this problem?!?

Would you mind sharing the people you go to for clothing help? I am a fairly classic dresser, but I'm trying to avoid anything frumpy. I'm only 32!

Awww emmahall82 I feel your pain!!!

I'm an Instagram addict as its so good to browse at when your waiting for the kids at school/football/ballet. I've struggled to find good ones, but my favourites are:

ink{https://www.instagram.com/thestylistandthewardrobe\www.instagram.com/thestylistandthewardrob]]e} - a mum
ink{https://www.instagram.com/annaelerihart\www.instagram.com/annaelerihar]]t} - not a mum
ink{https://www.instagram.com/stylonylon\www.instagram.com/stylonylo]]n} - mum, ignore the hair and filtering!
ink{https://www.instagram.com/erica_davies\www.instagram.com/erica_davie]]s} - mum, plus size

They all have reasonably normal budgets and are honest with their sponsorships... I trust them!

Hope that helps,

Kate x0x

Thank you Kate! Really helpful. I used to be so into bloggers but now their style seems very unrealistic for mums, but that said I want to find the happy medium - some parenting blogs are so, so dull. Not every Mum wants to wear White Stuff!

Hehehehehe! I know the feeling. Although I saw Anna post about White Stuff once... shockshockshockshockshockshock
