Nautical Spring

Spring has sprung here in Perth, Australia - well, almost! Even if the weather is not quite cooperating, sending some chilly, rainy days, I have been inspired by all the new clothes available in stores now. The nautical theme is a recurring one each year, and it's not hard to see why. It's crisp, classic and always stylish. It is also a very easy look for Chic Mummies to achieve, and can really help take a basic jeans and top outfit from something boring and run-of-the-mill to something chic and elegant. In this outfit, you could be running your kids to school, having a coffee with your chic mummy friends, or strolling down the French Riviera (hey, a girl can dream, can't she?!!).

This outfit starts with basic wide leg jeans. Add in a simple navy top, and you have the basic uniform of many SAHMs. Swap out your usual trainers for a red of wedges. The wide leg jean really needs a wedge, a chunky heel or a ballerina flat (if you have long legs) to look balanced. I like a wedge heel because they are more stable and comfortable than a chunky heel; I can run after my toddler in wedges, and they are comfy enough to be on my feet all day. Add on a couple of red bangles, grab a casual tote (I like the Coach one above because the navy colour ties in with the rest of the outfit, and stash a striped cardigan like this J Crew one in your bag in case the weather becomes a bit cooler. This outfit is stylish, but best of all, just as comfy as your usual jeans and tee.
