ok ladies i need your help!

i have decided that i have NOTHING to wear - seriously though!
after having a baby 6 months ago none of my pre-baby winter clothes fit properly anymore - mostly as my tummy is a bit wibbly and my hips are wider - and not the squidgy wide that would change with exercise!

i'm 28, 5foot 2, size 10 top, small boobs and size 12 bottom with short legs.

what can i wear?

How about short skirt/thick tights and boots?



top-wise, small boobs usually look great in a polo neck or
this is nice

i like the skirt and dress, what do you think shoes wise?

that;s my other dilemma, too cold for my beloved birkenstocks and ballet pumps but not cold enough for cosy uggs.

boots? maybe biker/ slouchy style?

I think biker, or chunky wedge (Fly London Mol or Mes?)
And, there is always chunky heeled mary janes - look great under bootcut jeans too.

Boyfriend jumper/knitted dress plus leggings and knee-length boots. You'll look fab and it will hide a multitude of sins.

I have a boyfriend jumper in teal from M&S which I love and my height makes it more of a dress! Sorry, I couldn't find it online, but there are loads about.

Also, buy a cool new necklace.

I find knitted dresses a littie unforgiving/clingy, and not so good after washing [though perhaps I have been unlucky?]. Love the boyfriend cardigan idea though (or Tesco have a long length waterfall one, which I tried on and is nice)

Great idea re the necklace (or a scarf also helps length the body, and take attention away from any squishy areas]

I bought one bf jumper from Next and it looked like a rag after its first wash, but the M&S one is much better quality and easy on the bumps.
