Today we have another Answer Me Chic post for one of our beautiful readers Jaclyn!
Hi Shop Me Chic Ladies
I have a Mummy Style challenge that I hope you can help me with.
As a Mum to two young boys we are constantly outside running, climbing, playing in puddles, and doing all of those things that boys love to do. In summer I generally stick to dresses and flats, and as a girly girl this suits me fine.
With winter approaching I am struggling to put together Mummy appropriate, comfortable and practical outfits that won’t break the bank, while still keeping touches of femininity.
Hopefully you can point me in the right direction.
For me, Winter is all about layering. There is no need to abandon your dresses when the temperature drops a little! I’ve put together two basic outfits that are practical, feminine and budget friendly plus easy to pair with other things you already have in your wardrobe!
This cute little lace dress is quite a bargain find from Princess Polly. Feminine yet practical when worn over a pair of leggings. Flat boots are a key staple for Winter plus your feet won’t feel as though they’re about to fall off after chasing the little ones around the park! The necklace adds a bit of sparkle but on days that need an extra layer, why not swap it for a scarf?
2.Betts Gun Boots from The Iconic – $89.99 (and free shipping!)
3. Small Knotted Necklace from Colette – $7.47
4. Skinny Legging Pant from ASOS – $25.95
I love the bright dress against the navy striped flats and the way the bangles tie it all together.The ASOS jeggings are a good little bargain to have in your wardrobe and will go with pretty much anything.

2. Jegging in Washed Indigo from ASOS – $32.44

What are your tips for looking chic yet keeping warm in the Winter weather?
