So it turns out that being a grown-up is perhaps not as much fun as we expected it to be.
The bills, the chores, the sleepless nights – when did it all get so dull?
Not to mention the clothes! Grey suits, navy shift dresses, white shorts, black jumpers – sure these all have a place in the stylish woman’s wardrobe, but have you ever been to the children’s section of a fashion store and thought “I wish they made that in my size”?
Oh, the prints! The patterns! The colours! No wonder kids have so much fun running around the playground / garden / living room* (*delete as appropriate) when they’re dressed in such crazy outfits!!
How you dress genuinely does have an impact on the way you feel – which is why I’ve made sure that the S.W.A.L.K. autumn / winter collection includes some playful pieces for you too!
Thought a grown woman couldn’t wear a dinosaur print? Think again. Decided that tops with a bird motif were just for little girls? Not true. Wondered if you could get away with a cute little cat embroidered onto your t-shirt? News flash – you can!
Here’s my edit of the most adorable pieces of the season. The only downside? You’ll have your kids raiding your wardrobe when you’re not looking!
Foxes are having a bit of a moment – they’re pretty much everywhere. And now they’re on your clothes too!
I absolutely adore this navy cross-back fox print top by SUGARHILL BOUTIQUE – the sexy back keeps it on the right side of “cutesy”!
Dinosaurs – not just for boys! This roar-some (see what I did there?) print adorns not one but two pieces in the SUGARHILL BOUTIQUE collection.
During the week scare your boss into giving you a pay rise in this smart but sassy dinosaur print white shirt with tie bow, and at the weekend show-off your “fun mum” side in this grey dinosaur sweater.

Perfect for getting into the Halloween vibe and / or trick-or-treating with the kids, you’ll have nothing but good luck wearing this black cat casual fit sweater by SUGARHILL BOUTIQUE.
For a classic look with a fun twist, you can’t go wrong with this cheeky little kitten popping out of the top pocket of this stripe Brighton top by SUGARHILL BOUTIQUE. You’ll most certainly look the cat’s pyjamas if you pair this with some Erin mid-waist skinny jeans in dark blue by ICHI – the perfect weekend “off-duty” look!
If you’ve ever wanted to channel your inner Zooey Deschanel – this embroidered bird on collar navy blue top by SUGARHILL BOUTIQUE will help you to express the manic pixie dream girl (trust me, it’s a thing) persona you’ve been keeping hidden!
Always fancied a bit of animal print but felt it was a bit too “girly” for your style? Unleash your wild side in this pink & grey Zebra print jumper by ICHI – and team it with these black leather effect leggings by NU DENMARK for some extra bite!
