But Autumn? Is our season. Because in Autumn our Mum's uniform can be passed off as an actual choice. That we went into a shop and decided to look a certain way rather than just shoving the nearest thing onto us as we run out of the door. So behold the 'looks' us Mums rock in Autumn. And for once? Feel part of the in crowd. Pinterest says we are bang on trend. And who are we to argue?
Only 20? I could give you 50!
We get to wear boots. We don't have to shave our toes. We can ease our feet into woolly socks and run to school, nursery or playgroup in a nice brown leather (or pleather from Matalan) comfortable boot. I've even had compliments on my boots! You wouldn't find this happening in summer I tell thee. No one compliments a £2 pair of Primark flip flops!
Jeggings don't look ill placed in Autumn. Oh no. They are what we should be wearing. Tucked into our boots and not just going over the top of our converse. Under a chunky knit, a jegging shows off the most flattering part of our bodies that hasn't been destroyed by a tiny person living in it.
This scarf covers half her hair, half her face and half her body. AMAZING!
LONG LIVE THE SCARF!!! A scarf hides a multitude of sins. And they are cheap. No husband will moan when you buy a scarf. As he doesn't know you have 43 hidden in your wardrobe. You can also do that thing when you wrap it over the bottom of your hair so no-one notices it looks sh*te.
Autumn is about cosy. And messy. And ruffled. So a messy bun? Perfect for Autumn. Or if your roots need doing quite badly? Say it's ombre. Say you are copying Beyonce. You are bang on trend. And then shove the bottom of it in your scarf.
Hat. Sunglasses. Scarf. You never need to wash and be made up again!
Dear person who made the 'hat' a fashion item. I want to snog you. Hard. It could be a woolly beanie. You may wear one of those fedoras. Or hell wrap a snood from the 80's round your head. Hats hide greasy hair. Hat's hide roots. Hat's hide faces. OK so sometimes other halves laugh when you wear a hat but f*ck them. They know nowt.
"Oh the sun is so bright this morning. I need to wear sunglasses. It's nothing to do with the fact that underneath them I look like a disgusting mess? No! It's a purely as it's a fresh sunny Autumn morn". Nuff said.
Top Shop sell Mum coats. SO WE MOST BE TRENDY!
YES MUM COATS ARE FASHIONABLE!!!! You can go into any shop and see your bog standard Mum parka with a huge hood on sale. Whilst we struggle into them all the year round? Combined with our brand new tartan scarf and boots from Primark? We basically look like Kate Moss.
So you've read the proof. We are now fashionable. In fact it appears the more of a mess we look the more in Vogue we are! So ladies, go forth, cover up and enjoy the most joyous of all seasons. It comes but once a year. So make the most of it.
