Here's my ideal style, although I'd replace the heels with flats or Chelsea boots. The reality is a totally different matter though, my wardrobe is badly in need of a cull of stained and tatty but oh so comfortable tops blush

I'm expecting baby no 3 at the moment but once I'm back out of maternity gear I badly need to get a few capsule outfits together!

Show me your style mn ladies grin

Fab thread can't wait to see everyone else's posts!

I love this kind of outfit, cute and casual

GVmama Sat 11-Feb-17 19:46:37

This is probably more 'me' at the moment as its freezing! Not so keen on the coat, looks a but bulky at the front...

GVmama Sat 11-Feb-17 19:48:08

Yours is gorgeous. I wouldn't cope with those heels, it would be tan Chelsea boots for me too!

I really like hughlauries & gv's, I need links to buy them I am rubbish with trying to hunt through shops pleeeeeease!

GVmama Sat 11-Feb-17 20:09:51

Mine were both pinched from Pinterest, not sure which shops they're from.

Loving seeing everyone else's ideal style smile the tan bag is gorgeous heavenscent!

I'm 40 weeks pregnant. Looking back at photos and looks, I remember there was once a time when I actually looked nice.... sad. (not me in photo but I do have this dress)

AliciaMayEmory Sat 11-Feb-17 20:39:55

Having been known to go overboard with my outfits, I'm trying to keep it simple these days.

GVmama Sat 11-Feb-17 21:01:17

Very classy Alicia! Love the shoes, are they heels or flats? Love the earrings too, I tend to wear pearls or small diamonds during the day.

Fenella, I'm sure you look gorgeous now!! It is hard towards the end though, isn't it? Love the summer dress and denim jacket combo.

HughLauriesStubble Sat 11-Feb-17 21:16:32

Ooh it's fab seeing everyone else's! Gv I love your first one, and I love heavenscents summery dress too, although I try to stay away from light coloured tops as I'm terrible for getting stains on stuff blush

fenella I know how you feel, I'm 35 weeks and I'm lucky if I do better than maternity leggings and a busting at the seams stretchy top these days. Cannot wait to get back to regular clothes!

Swimminguphill Sat 11-Feb-17 21:21:03 I am in awe of her style. Will never be her though sad

Swimminguphill Sat 11-Feb-17 21:21:43

Sorry I don't know if my link worked...

Notthecarwashagain Sat 11-Feb-17 21:23:43

Yayayay - excellent thread!!

NotTheBelleoftheBall Sat 11-Feb-17 21:29:47

Oh shit, that's two photos.

Diamonddealeroncemore Sat 11-Feb-17 21:32:09

This is a great thread! This is the sort of look I like except I am dumpier and older than this model.

FenellaMaxwellsPony Sat 11-Feb-17 21:40:22

GVMama - so hard!! I really don't look or feel like me at all!

HughLaurie I have banished all my size 10 clothes to the attic but I can't wait to be at the point where they can all come out again!!

LoupGarou Sat 11-Feb-17 22:00:13

Notthecar hahaha! grin

FranKubelik Sat 11-Feb-17 22:10:08

I love the bag in the OP Hugh - do you know where it's from?

sunshineglitterprincess Sat 11-Feb-17 22:14:02

This is pretty much my ideal style. Black casual but fitted tee, jeans, ballet pumps, scarf.
