7 ways to wear your white work shirt now you’re CEO of a household

How much of your pre-baby wardrobe do you wear now?

We asked 150 women this question, and a staggering 73% said less than half.

And nearly 1/4 say they wear nothing from their pre-baby days.


So when you think about it, there is a truck load of clothing sitting around in our wardrobes right now that is not seeing the light of day.


There are probably a few reasons for this:
1) they don’t fit any more (they will, in time ;))
2) I forgot I even owned it (take some fish-oil ;))
3) it’s not ‘appropriate’ for wearing now, when I’m out and about with the kids (you’ve come to the right place ;))


Over the next few weeks our new Fox in Flats contributor A.J. will be looking at some typical B.C. (Before Child) clothes, and sharing some ideas and inspiration on how you can wear them now. Starting with your office attire.


Shes’s been scratching her head and asking:
“How can I wear my office-clothes now in my new role as a mum without looking like some demented sleep-deprived executive?!”
