OK, I’m off shopping in a couple of days for a much needed wardrobe update. DS2 is 10 months so last year’s winter wardrobe (maternity) is a no go and I feel like I have totally taken my eye off the ball as to what’s in or out, looks good or not etc!
Please give me a few ideas as to what you would be looking for if you were me. I’m 5ft 4 and 10 top and curvy 10 small 12 bottom.

Some winter basics examples would be things like a knitted jumper dress, gilet, poloneck, jeans ( e.g. skinny or wide leg, high waisted is in), mini eg denim or one the knee A-line skirt to waer with coloured tights and a few tops to smarten up jeans and a long cardigan. When you've got what you want get some accessories, eg belts, hats , goves, hats etc.
