It’s that time of the month again – it’s time to Shop Her Chic! Today we have the gorgeous and foxy Andrea from Fox in Flats – the queen of navigating motherhood in style!
Hey there Chic-ettes!
I’m Andrea, the mother of two cute but crazy little boys, and my other ‘baby’ is Fox in Flats. Fox in Flats is designed to share tips, ideas and inspiration to make it much, much easier to navigate motherhood in style. I created it because after having my boys I fell into a motherhood-induced fashion rut, and couldn’t find a relevant resource to help me dig my way out of it.
Since its launch two years ago, Fox in Flats has grown to be a friendly and inclusive community of awesome women (not all of us are mums!) who’re all looking for similar style solutions and a load of time-saving tips and shortcuts.
Plus, we’ve been lucky enough to have had the support of mega-watt celebs like Dannii Minogue, Peter Morrissey and Roberto Cavalli who’ve shared their tips with us along the way.
I’d describe my style as classic with a rock-glam kinda twist.
My go-to basics are comfy skinny jeans with a t-shirt or tank, a tailored blazer, and quality shoes (flats of course, but when I’m not with my kids the heels are out in full force!). This classic silhouette works well for most women, and for me, emphasises my best bits, and hides my problem areas.
And I’ll team these basics with something that makes a “Hello, I’m here!” kind of statement – maybe a band t-shirt, or a pair of out-there sunnies.
I like to take the edge of with a pile of my favourite necklaces – heirloom pearls with a Tiffany’s Elsa Peretti heart pendant threaded through it, a locket containing photos of my boys, a diamond necklace made from my mum’s engagement ring after she passed, and a blingy Peter Lang number. A red lip glams it up (and distracts from my sleep deprived eyes!)
I’m mostly found rummaging around in my wardrobe and exploring how to combine my existing items in new ways instead of buying lots of new things.
The Fox in Flats Style Dares have been the driver behind this. They’ve forced me to really look at what I’ve got, and make the most of that. And in doing so, it’s helped me really discover my own unique style, and feel confident about it.
Head over to Fox in Flats to check out the Fox in Flats Style Dare a Day March challenge!
