Pre-kids I was one of those people who pulled outfits together for the next day and hung them on the bedroom door (I clearly had too much spare time on my hands), even if it was for a boring AF day in the office. But since having my bebe girl, I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve actually needed to put an outfit together – these days my outfits are more throw-on-and-get-the-f*ck-outta-the-house.
That’s when I learned that the mum uniform is very much a thing and having a capsule of clothing is the key to looking fab, especially when you’ve been up for two long hours the night before with a teething babe… we need all the help we can get!
What’s even better is when you can build your dream wardrobe from the start of your cray motherhood journey and have it still look gorge post-babe. That’s why LEGOE. HERITAGE is one of our fav Aussie labels and we asked them to pull together the ultimate capsule collection for the modern mama. Plus, with 10% off with the code MAMAD2020, it’s time to #addtocart!
1 // SIENNA SHIRTDRESS, $109
Now THIS is how I wanted to look when I was styling the #bump… feminine, chic and downright ah-mazing. The Sienna Shirtdress is a gorge style that you can wear all year round, plus there’s no clinging on a full term bump or post baby tummy (whoop!). It also has buttons halfway down the front… hello easy access to the milky goods.
2 // BATEAU CREW KNIT, $119
With temps dropping, we all need cool AF knitwear to layer, layer, layer. One of LEGOE. HERITAGE’s best-sellers is the Bateau Crew Knit, and Jess has already planned to wear this on Mother’s Day for the ultimate casual cool outfit of the day, #ootd. Plus it comes in black, white, navy, primrose and black/white stripe, so you can have these babies on high rotation all season long! Breastfeeding mamas will also LOVE this wardrobe staple because it has sneaky zips down the side, genius!
3 // LOUNGE PANT, $89
Loungewear is really having a moment right now, because… #isolife, and the new Lounge Pant is seriously all any mama needs! These pants are a fresh take on LEGOE.’s classic harems, they’re soft and stretchy and are designed to be worn low on the hips (or below the bump), so you can go from school drop off, to grocery shopping and yoga, and have a five min chill on the lounge and scroll the ‘gram before the afternoon mayhem begins. Yasss!
4 // MILAN JOGGERS II, $89
Anyone else wearing the same sweatpants as yesterday? Cool, it’s not just me then. These are the comfiest and coolest maternity joggers around! And we can already tell that these sports-luxe joggers will fast become your go-to all year round, whether you’re pregnant or not. Plus, we love that LEGOE. has nailed the balance between comfort and style with these bad boys, so you can rock them all day and not have to change when your BFF unexpectedly FaceTimes you.
