Shopping with YummoMummo x

Posted on: November 4, 2014 by Yummo Mummo


A dear friend wanted to update her wardrobe with some fun pieces and who better to go shopping with than yours truly.

We got a mix of  three dresses in a black/white stripe, a grey jersey knit with a tie waist, and a black long sleeve dress. Also, a fun pair of polka dot pants, a zebra print scarf,  two long gold chain necklaces, two pairs of ballet flats in a red and a leopard print, a super cute polka dot button down shirt and an utterly funky Ooh La La print sweater. Oh, and don’t forget the leopard print belt!    As you can see,  a mix of patterns with some polka dot, zebra and stripes. The palette was very versatile and neutral but we popped in some bling with red flats and the patterns.

She willingly agreed to ‘let me work my magic’ and try some pieces that she might not have chosen herself to take to the changeroom.
Well, 2 hours later and what a blast we had had. It was a late Thursday night so the change rooms were empty and we pretty much had the place to ourselves to play around and have some fun creating a million different outfits (not exactly 1million, but pretty close).
She is an awesome Mum (Mom) to four little ones so high on her clothing list are items that wash well, can afford to be covered in food and kiddo bits by the end of the day, and were affordable enough for her to dabble with for this season and beyond.
With the pieces she purchased, and some bits from her own wardrobe, we can make 18, yes 18, fabuloso outfits. Watch out world, one stylish mumma is coming your way!
All her outfits can take her from school runs to drinks with the girls. The total for this totally fashionable and stylish event was  approximately $220 and with 18 outfits, that makes a grand total of approximately $12/outfit.
Enjoy the show, here she is looking deliciously yummy mummy-like in all 18 outfits.

From her own wardrobe were the brown boots, black booties, leggings and white tee. Staples anyone would have in their wardrobe.


Here she only needed to add her own denim jacket, black puffer vest and clutch bag. Again, readily available staples.


We embellished her own denim jacket with a fascinator. Fascinators are very versatile.


One super comfortable striped dress worn many ways. Love this dress!


The fascinator from the denim jacket is now paired in her hair. She added her own simple black jacket with fleather sleeves. Love the pop of red with this outfit and with some red lips to rock it out the door!


I draped the sweater over the grey jersey dress for a little preppy fun  – Ooh La La! And with the leopard print flats, double Ooh La La!

    Love how all the pieces work together — so versatile and yet affordable! Thanks for posting all the outfits! 🙂

    • Thanks PC, it was a lot of fun to come up with so many wonderful outfits that could be worn on so many different occasions. Looking fabulously stylish in comfortable clothes that are VERY easy to take care of and not too precious.

  3. Everything looks SO GOOD. My favourite is the polka dot pants, so great!

    • Thanks Beck. Yes, the polka dot pants are super cute and a personal favorite of mine are those red shoes! I searched the entire store for the best of the best for this amazing mum to enjoy.

    I love how you mixed and matched the patterned pieces. I recently landed a professional job and I am learning how to put pieces together. I've been wearing a uniform for fourteen years. It gets frustrating at times, but your looks are really classic, fun, simple, and most importantly affordable. I will see if I can put a look like this together.
