Mothers Day with Baukjen

3.25.2017



Style Theory: I have teamed up with Baukjen this Mother's Day to share my #Mumsknowsbest advice with you, because frankly she does know best! 

My Beautiful Mum
My Mum was the person who taught me about fashion, an avid fan (and critic) of each designer's range as it came out each season, by means of Hello magazine back in the day. Mum truly loves fashion and clothes, she was a Buyer for a department store in Glasgow before becoming a teacher and her love of fashion has stayed with her. She was always, in a chic way, ahead of the trends but believed in saving up for quality pieces, beautiful tweed, chanel-esque suits in the 50s and 60s, her mantra is quality over quantity (sadly this has been lost on me and my bad Zara/Topshop habit!) and she has always been a stickler for detail and a good cut. She lived in a tenament in Glasgow but always looked like she had stepped off the pages of a cool, stylish magazine. Less is more and in the 80s she chose the chic, understated path which has remained timeless..


This Baukjen outfit I have styled up will definitely get Mum's seal of approval.  A great trench is an essential part of a capsule wardrobe and one item of clothing that never ever dates. This Baukjen trench is the most beautiful coat I have worn in a long time, it is amazing quality, a good weight, is cut beautifully (I sized down to a size 8) and feels pretty special on. It is one of those coats you can throw on and immediately feel a little more polished and elegant, perfect with jeans or over trousers for work.


This subtly striped off the shoulder top in a beautiful cotton is one of those tops I will reach for again and again in the summer, great with jeans, shorts, wrap skirts, easy to wear and so chic (I am wearing a size 10). The jeans are fab, a great colour of blue for the summer, comfortable and flattering with just the right amount of stretch and cover my mum-tum perfectly (these are waist 27).

So Mum what do you think??? I always always listen to my Mums advice, she does not hold back speaking her mind, particularly when it comes to fashion and my outfits but is also mine and my sister's biggest, most loyal support, she is one in a million.

Mum is the original Girl Power icon, she taught me, along with my three sisters that we are capable of anything, from jumping out of planes to passing exams to travelling the world, that we should never let fear stop us from doing anything, never let it get the best of us to push through as it will make us stronger in the long run. This is the most important lesson I will pass down to my children, along with her amazing ability to be the best fun at any party, she is a one off, a whirlwind the most loving, kind, generous, loyal, fun person ever, so if I can teach my kids to be strong like her I will be doing a good job!

What lessons has your Mum taught you that you want to pass down to your kids? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran xxx
