looking for style inspiration but from people who have my lifestyle (not wearing DVF dresses and endless gucci belts, golden goose trainers etc), aren't 40+ and wear normal things that can be worn when running after children who are small.

can any recommend people for me to follow?

Look at 40plusnotgivingupyet

OP isn't interested in anything anyone 40 plus has to say about fashion...
I agree with you though Pringle, she's fab!

i am skippy, course i am but 35-40 is my age group - obviously not a huge difference but i wanted to see what other real women my age wear who are more creative and interested in style.

i spend a lot of time at the park or carrying a small child with ice cream hands and going out on bikes/scooters at local nature reserve which has a lovely cafe, so billowing dresses and jumpsuits aren't on my radar.

i had a look at your suggestion pringle that lady has great everyday style. thanks

There is a midsizecollective account that focuses on 12-14 they repost from many different accounts so you may find a few you like 🙂

#dresslikeamum has started to get on my nerves for some unexplainable reason, I’ve unfollowed her! #smugface springs to mind, she’s become too much of the instaratti squad - I think that she’s lost her authenticity.

I follow
#andgetitdressed (women of ALL shapes and sizes featured)

But picked up some new ones on this thread to check out too!

Annabelle4 Sun 12-Aug-18 07:51:30

I didn't know #dresslikeamum was a person, it's just a # I click on and see what all the mums that day are wearing smile

ToBeClear Sun 12-Aug-18 08:18:59

Yes but lots of women use the hashtag too as you mention. #fridayfeet will also help you find people.

AnnaT45 Sun 12-Aug-18 08:22:29

She's prob only late 20s but Hannah Gale is a nice one to follow. She does frequent round ups on her stories of things new in or gives it a theme like bras for big boobs etc. Maybe worth a look

Dresslikeamum is one long non disclosed ad and lots of grabby asks for free stuff. Also dresses like a children’s TV presenter too

CurlyTwirlyTwos Sun 12-Aug-18 16:18:44

Apologies - change of of the # for @ on my previous post!

Totally agree with checkedcloth on @dresslikeamum

Kaz2200 Sun 12-Aug-18 19:06:25

Can I ask for any recommendation for size 14plus who are UK based on a budget.

Unobtainable Sun 12-Aug-18 19:28:44

lovestyle40 is a good one. she’s a 12/14 and your age bracket. More pretty than cool though so may not be your style. What sort of thing do you like and whose style do you admire?

AncoraAmarena Sun 12-Aug-18 20:10:20

@im_an_80s_lady is fab to watch/listen to on stories. Very likeable and down to earth.

flutteryleaves Sun 12-Aug-18 21:47:10

thanks for ideas. i like:

i like jeans, clean shapes, nothing too edgy, the odd fancy designer accessory and real style not a floaty, frilly dress to wear on school run to only have to change when i get back as sleeves get in way of emptying bins grin.

Anyone else spring to mind?

Violet25 Sun 12-Aug-18 23:11:30
