    Default Finding my style!?

    So I'm stuck in a rut. I've just had my second and final child and will be stopping breastfeeding soon. I need new clothes but I feel I've lost my sense of self since becoming a mum right down to I don't even know what I like, what suits me and my lifestyle.

    Every time I go shopping I just seem to hate everything or at the very least fail to see how I could em corporate any pieces into a wardrobe.

    Has anyone experienced this? How did you get out of your personal and style rut?

    Not sure where you live but I know some of the major shopping centres (chadstone etc) in Melbourne have a stylist that you can see, that takes you around and shows what things suit you. Maybe you could look into doing something like this?

    I'm in Adelaide. Do you have to buy anything as part of it or you just pay them for their time and advice?

    You don't have to purchase anything, just pay the stylist for their time.

    I'm in this same exact predicament but didn't know how to ask the same question as you have. So I guess that means I'm subbing

    I'm in the same boat Every time I've been shopping for the last few years, I want to come home and cry! I hardly find anything I even like and if I do, it looks awful on.

    Same here; and being at least 20kg overweight isn't helping matters either.

    Maybe you could start by making yourself a mood board. Get a piece of cardboard and cut out things from magazines that you think you like, colours you like etc. That way you might find a common trend on that will help you with your "style" then determine your body shape and find items to that suit from your mood board.

    Pinterest is good for style boards.

    I dont have a set style. One day im dressing like a boy from 90's grunge, another day im dressing like a housewife from the 50's.

    I find sticking to one style limiting
