I know that probably only a small percentage of my readers are mothers themselves but I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day yesterday. I sent my mum some pretty cards and photos from me & Chloe. Its a shame I couldn't actually spend the day with her but I saw her earlier in the week anyway. As a newly single mum I wasn't really expecting to get anything considering Chloe isn't even three yet and spends pretty much every waking minute with me. So I was very lucky to be treated to some new clothes by Missguided especially for Mother's Day! A couple of the things I picked out were this neon pink skirt & these heart print tights. I'm only 24 and despite being a mum I don't necessarily feel the need to dress 'mumsy'. I think its more important to dress how you want to dress so you don't lose your identity once you become a parent. I'm loving everything neon at the minute and anything with hearts on is a winner for me. I like that I kinda match with Chloe's neon pink fox & heart dress from H&M haha. Lets just take a minute to appreciate how cute these tights are. Think I might need to order the kitty ones next!

I wore this on Sunday for a trip to Meadowhall as we wanted to find Chloe some presents for her birthday next month but the only thing we came out with is the Daisy Duck toy you can see her clinging on to. Ah well I've got like six Disney princess outfits in my Amazon shopping basket for her so she'll still get spoiled! I wore the same thing on Saturday for the FABB bloggers event in Leeds. Its always lovely to catch up with the girls I've met in the past as well as meeting a few new faces. Loved chatting with Elizabeth who is an absolute sweetheart & she wears some gorgeous dresses on her blog so go check it out if you haven't already! I really enjoyed the presentations from Best British Bloggers & Ark Clothing. Pretty sure I need to buy everything that Hearts & Bows have in stock, especially this beaut of a skirt! Can't wait for the next event :)

  18. Chloe is absolutely precious. I'm a single mum at 24 too, and I would hope that a lot of the time I don't dress very "mumsy" ... well maybe I do at home & running errands. Oops. Mine's a very young one though.
    LOVE Missguided's range of tights, they're so damn cute!
