8 Trends That Prove Mums ROCK Autumn!

Oh autumn you amazing thing of beauty. You are the one season in the year when us Mum's come into our own. When we feel slightly more human. In fact sometimes it can be said we even look "nice". Summer? Is hot and clammy. We can never tell if it's going to be a bit cold so we sweat in our Mum coats, forget to shave our legs and end up in maxi skirts and leggings all the time. Winter we worry about snow, forgetting mittens and slipping arse over tit. Spring is spent with our hood up moaning about the rain whilst we wait for summer. Which we have forgotten we hate.

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?

Boots and a jazzy scarf basically makes me totes Kate Moss. FACT

Boots
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.

The 'Jegging'
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. You know that bit just above your knee and before your cankle begins.

Cardigans
Mums love cardigans. Cardigans cover wobbly arms, cover tops that have a bit of baby sick on the shoulder and can even be used to sit on when you forget a picnic blanket in the park. You would be hard pressed to find a shop that doesn't sell cardys during autumn. Long ones that cover your arse, chunky ones that cover your mum tum and even a jazzy one for ready a Christmas night out. I like to bulk buy them and then I've got plenty to keep me going throughout the year.

THIS CARDIGAN COVERS MY ARSE SO I SHALL NEVER REMOVE IT EVER

Scarves
LONG LIVE THE SCARF! A scarf hides a multitude of sins. And they are cheap. No husband will moan when you buy a scarf. And he doesn't need to know that 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. Aces.

Messy Hair
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.

Hats
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.

 I am happy. As I didn't have to wash my hair. HOORAH!

Sunglasses
"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.

Big Coats
YES MUM COATS ARE AT LAST FASHIONABLE! You can go into any youth high street 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.

OH GOD I JUST LOVE AUTUMN

  1. I loved this post, as you know I adore you YT channel after being introduced by my friends Khila and Emma and now I am loving your blog too, so I apologise in advance for bugging the shite out of you with blog comments now as well as YT ones.
