Just had a baby and lost your fashion mojo? Stuck in a mama-uniform rut? Then head no further than your Instagram feed.
Here’s the second part of my favourite and of course, most stylish mamas on my Instagram feed. Missed Part One? Catch it here.
And, if you’re on Instagram why not hashtag your pick of stylish mamas with #vibmamas – I’d love to see the mamas with style who inspire you!
The final five of my #vibmamas on Instagram (and in no particular order remember)…
Mrs. Lilien Arbiter of the elusive ladylike pleasures / Chief Ambassador of the elevated lifestyle / Bon Vivant of the Internet. http://blog.mrslilien.com
I’ve followed Mrs L for a while now- her blog is so engaging and her layouts to die for. If I lived in America (or, San Diego as Mrs Kelley Lilien does) I would want to dress exactly as she does in sunny retro style ‘Porch’ dresses/kaftans, bold prints, cocktail jewellery, headscarves and super size shades.
She’s never without a faux flamingo in her garden or a cocktail in her hand. In fact she designed her own fabulous bar cart here (and yes, I tried to get one shipped to the UK!) and is the author of two fabulous cocktail books (Cocktail Swatchbook and Dessert Cocktail Swatchbook). Yes, I think she is fab-u-lous and so will you!
Erica Davies Fashion & style journalist. LOOK Magazine. Mum. Loves a bit of leopard print.http://www.modernmummusthave.com
As a fellow fashion editor I have known Erica for years – but we’ve only recently connected over the mummy blog-o-sphere. Her blog (The-Edited) is full of insider tips, fashion finds and frankly posts I wish I had thought of.
I especially love her IG feed as you can always get a good picture of what she’s wearing from her down-looking shots and I always think that’s exactly what I want to be wearing today! Her love of shoes, leopard print and seeking out those ‘must-have’ items is evident and will make you want her on speed dial.
Morgana young(ish) mum to two headstrong girls // obsessed with pinterest // partial to a bit of gin drinking // owner of @littlefiercekids // blogs at.. http://www.butwhymummywhy.com
My fashion envy of Morgana kinda crept up on me. I love her honest and frank blog about her family life – and her IG feed is full of fantastic pictures of her girls, her baking and her love of coffee. But, when I looked closer at the picts of herself I realised she was a super-stylish lady! Statement necklaces, ladylike frocks and on-trend accessories…see, one hip mama!
Laura Fantacci Former fashion editor, founder of Wearing it Today and working at a secret project set to launch at the end of the Summer… http://wearingittoday.co.uk
Italian, model looks, worked at a major glossy mag (Red) and over 7,000 followers on Instagram it was hard not to feel intimidated. I will admit I was a little nervous emailing her – but I can confirm she was the first to reply. So, add super nice to her list too.
Laura’s style sense, fashion advice, suggested buys and of course her picts of her equally delicious daughter on IG keep me hooked for ages and I mean ages! Her blog WIT is one of the first ones I look at daily – and it will be your daily fix now too (trust me!)
sarahjoanross Writer & stylist: Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Emirates Woman, Marie Claire, In Style
Having been an style director and stylist for many top mags Brit Sarah Joan Ross – often referred to as SJR – is always ahead of the trends. But, for her real life she filters down the catwalk looks to work with her former life in Dubai (she’s since moved back to the UK) and with a toddler. Fabric clashes, capes, over sized shoppers (slung at the elbow of course) and her trademark locks make her a mama to watch.
