Sweatshirt Love


The ‘Mum uniform’ – let’s face it, we all have one. That default outfit that’s comfortable and easy when you’re running from the school gates to the post office, then to Tescos and and the dry cleaners, before heading home to cram in a sandwich, put on a wash, blink and then head out to fetch the kids from school. So how do you achieve this very casual and comfortable look, while still feeling current and stylish? Simply pair your favourite jeans with a striking sweatshirt and a cool pair of trainers. (Gazelles, Stans and Golden Goose my current favourites)

In winter, my ‘mum uniform’ tends to be jeans, a cashmere jumper and trainers. In the Spring, I start to swap my jumpers for a lighter sweatshirt or a shirt with a pair of trainers or smarter flats, and then move into t-shirts and sandals in the summer.

So if we look ahead to spring, we should start thinking about investing in a few sweatshirts. I have had a little look for some investment and bargain options- here’s what I found..

The one I am wearing here is from Isabel Marant and you can nab it with 30% off and free shipping in the Mytheresa Sale.

  1. I love your ‘Mum Uniform’ Chloe. So simple yet so stylish. The new school year starts on Monday here in Sydney after a two month break. I’m starting to think about my ‘Mum Uniform’ for next week and the crazy days of two school drop offs and then pick ups. Thanks for sharing – I love your style. Abbey xxx

  2. I love a sweatshirt too, so comfy and easy to wear. I love the ones from Mango that you have shown in your blog, just the kind of thing I would opt for although I love the adidas one too! L x
