As most mums can probably attest, pulling together an outfit is low on the priority list when you’ve got a busy day ahead of you. The aim is just to get out the door fast! And when you are in mum mode you need to be comfortable first and foremost and your outfit needs to be able to withstand whatever a toddler and baby may throw your way. Literally.
Does this sound familiar?
Newborn Mum Style = Huge, messy boobs jammed into daggy bras, tracksuit pants and unwashed hair.
10 week old Mum Style = spanx when you have to wear anything but pj’s and you want to eat cake somewhere other than your lounge room. But then as soon as you get home you can’t wait to get back into trackies to express milk and watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
5 months old Mum Style and Beyond = You stand in front of the mirror thinking how on earth do you dress your new busty, materbity-bra-ed, wide-hipped frame??? All your old stuff (preppy, fitted shirts, high-waisted skirts and novelty sweaters) still don’t fit, and the cute, colourful young woman you used to dress as seems wrong now. (Too tight! Too short! Too busty! Too non-motherly!)
And this last phase can last a looooong time. Hands up if you still wear maternity bras and your kids are 3?!?!?
Enter Dan and Dani from Designer Stylist.
At our exclusive MUMOKI Event they will be providing tips on how to dress for your post baby body, hacks to apply new trends to your current wardrobe and style basics every mum should have at their disposal.
And what fashion event would be complete without bubbles and canapés darling?

More about Cod’s Gift
Dressed up in velvet, brass and concrete, Cod’s Gift is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, and showcases sustainably caught seafood, cocktails and a bespoke wine list concentrating on natural and biodynamic wines.
But here is where they caught us hook, line and sinker (HA! See what I did there?). The menu features all your favourite seafood classics, including Western Australian barramundi fillet, South Australian mussels, and whole kingfish fresh from the Northern Territory. If you choose to settle in (and quite frankly, why wouldn’t you when it looks this lush and luxe?), then the drinks menu boasts biodynamic wines and modern cocktails, like the gin and juice, which is a refreshing combination of saffron gin, dragon fruit, and watermelon; and a salt and vinegar martini.
