aMothersEdit is written by Ashley, a thirty two year old mother of two. Ashley lives in South West London and has worked in fashion for twelve years. Having worked with many brands, big and small, highstreet and luxury, she now works part-time allowing her to spend more time with her daughters Vivienne and Margot.

‘If you’re reading this then thank you so much, its so nice to hear when people enjoy my content or have found my posts useful or inspiring. After having Vivienne I found it all too easy to pull on the same old jeans and baggy jumper every morning so started documenting my outfits as a challenge to myself  to make more of an effort. I remembered how much I enjoyed playing with styles and mix and matching different pieces. Rediscovering my ‘passion for fashion’ has been so much fun and the Instagram community is incredible when you’re looking for inspiration and support. I love black & white, lace & denim and have a magpie eye for anything shiny or gold. I hope I can help inspire a few others on my mum-style journey.
