Shopping with YummoMummo! 5 new items makes 9 new outfits! x

This time I took myself shopping and came up with a nine (9) fabulous outfits I could wear with items I already had in my wardrobe.  It always blows my mind how I can make this amount of go-to outfits by using new and old items. This sort of magic is especially important when going on vacation and there is limited baggage space. If you've been keeping up with my posts, you will see reference to my new Gap Girlfriends Jeans (read post HERE) and my Zebra print top (read post HERE)

Rugby Stripe T from Forever 21 / $17
White Jacket from Forever 21 /  $24
1969 Girlfriend Jeans from Gap /  $53 (on sale 30% off from $70)
Glasses from Forever 21 /  $5
Zebra print top from Nordstrom Rack  / $35
Shopping total: $134

Already in my wardrobe:
Black pencil skirt

I realize that I probably have more than the 'norm' when it comes to statement jewelry, but seriously, accessories are so valuable to transforming an outfit that you can never have too many. Maybe it's time you hosted a trunk show yourself to pick up some hostess goodies. To  know more about this read my post HERE.

Leave me a comment below with your favorite outfit? I read and respond to ALL comments.

*Disclosure: I am not a trained photographer nor trained in how to pose for photos, I am just a Mum trying to share some insights and inspiration with you. In being truly authentic to my cause, I have used my own clothes and used myself in the photos whole-heartily. Enjoy! (Fun Blogger Fact - It took 100 photo shots to get the 13 I actually used.)


  1. You are so beautiful! I love all of your outfits but especially the outfits 5 and 8!

    1. Hi Colorful Boquet, thanks for much for reading. Those were most of my favorite ones too. This post was so much fun to work on. Have a great day.

  2. SO HARD to pick a fav. Though I just love the jeans, zebra top and white jacket x

    1. Hi Beck, seems like #6 was you favorite. Super comfortable outfit for stylishly running around town!! Thanks for reading!

  3. Love the crystal necklace and white blazer! So chic!

    1. Thanks! So glad you like! I can see myself getting ALOT of wear out of that blazer this SS15!

  4. Wow you're looking absolutely amazing, I'm finding it hard to pick my favourite look because I love your style. Those leopard flats are to die for and I love outfit 6 the most I think, so chic!

    1. I have to say that I think #6 is my most favorite too! I love a chic look. x

  5. Ok I ❤️❤️❤️Them all but if I have to pick #6 and #7 are so fab! What are those black ankle strap sandals? I need them and that white blazer is such a fantastic piece! Oh and that Orange jacket,❤️! Great post! XO

    1. The tangerine jacket has been a great statement for morning school runs in the winter. Love a bit of color amongst all the dark grey skies. The ankle strap heels are Julianne Hough for Sole Society from The Rack last summer. Love them! So glad you enjoyed the post, was SOOO much fun to work on. x

  6. You look stunning in all of the photos! I love all the outfits, especially #3 and #5! The necklaces are to die for, I'm going to have to hunt some of them down!

    1. Thanks Priyanka, like I said in the post, I have a lot of statement jewelry but they can transform an outfit so amazingly so they are gold to have in my wardrobe.

  7. Great post! I *love* statement jewelry. You're right - adding it to an outfit can totally change how you wear it, giving you versatility & keeping things fresh!
