I need (want) some new non-maternity bits! I've no idea where to start, everything I order keeps getting sent back as it looks awful on!
So, what are your favourite pieces at the moment?
Generally, I prefer to wear dresses over trousers and I don't remember the last time I wore a skirt and top combo! - and am struggling with my usual low waisted jeans/linens at the moment due to CS - tempted by a high waisted loose pair maybe, but thinking I may be all wrong body shape wise as my previous hour glass figure is now more apple like.
Any help to prevent me looking like an outdated tramp (currently living in joggers - eek) would be much appreciated. .

I asked for jean recommendations yesterday and Topshop Leigh came out trumps. I'm yet to try or buy any but I shall be very soon.
Workwise I've a couple new bits I'm loving: black patent court shoes & new peplum top. Very sophisticated.
Casual I'm loving my new mint green jumper and XXXL hair doughnut. I got tons of compliments at the weekend.

What size and shape are you?
During the week I am in skinnies with jumpers or leggings and long tops.

I love that jumper Belle, fab colour!

Thanks it's really lovely. I was unsure at first because it's so baggy but everyone commented on it.

Thanks ladies - I very much like the jumper! However, I'm not even sure i'd know what to do with the donut! I'm officially getting old!
I am about a size 10-12 normally and used to be boob-heavy, but i've just tried to squeeze myself into a pair of next size 12 chinos, and had about 3/4 of an inch that I couldn't do up (am hoping it's still swelling from the CS - as i'm now only 3lb above pre-pregnancy weight but it's not looking likely, and i'll need to be hitting the gym as soon as I can). I am also only 5ft so a bit of a pain really!
I've come home with a frilly/floaty blouse (that i've no trousers to wear with it - my jeans fit, but can't take the preasure against my scar) and a pair of leggings, as my maternity tights are huge, but my tights have the same effect as trousers - waaah, I just want to feel normal again!
I must try one of those peplum tops - am thinking they'll hide my tummy?

Belle I love that jumper. Fab with skinny jeans, I'm loving that sort of stuff atm.

I live in skinny jeans (black, dark denim, maroon) with long sleeved stretchy tops with big cardigans or a vest with a baggy jumpers and Converse or pumps. Leggins with long fitted t-shirts or baggy jumpers or casual dresses and flat boots.
