my mum’s threads no. 2 [giveaway closed]

Congrats to Jamie Worall, Danielle, and Madison the 3 winners of this giveaway!

For our second installment of My Mum’s Threads we have brought together some of our favorite things: local boutique Koo De Ker, fashion blogger and mama to the darling Hanes, Cara Loren, and free clothes for our dear readers!

Koo De Ker had Cara and Small Fry over to shop their amazing new Fall line and put together mum approved ensembles. Cara hunted down the perfect pieces that suited her edgy style and would also keep up with any adventures she and Hanes encountered.
Mums Threads Cara 2Koo De Ker is the perfect combination of on-trend and well tailored clothing. Everything is brought in with the woman’s body in mind, their shop is chalk full of special and unique pieces, the kind that people will stop you in the street demanding to know where you got them. Here’s what Cara had to say about her Koo De Ker picks.
Look No. 1: As a mom I am always looking for something that I can chase Hanes in easily but also look fab while doing it. I chose this maxi skirt because I can never pass on a comfortable/chic maxi skirt, and paired it with this oversized cropped sweater for the the perfect fall look. The sweater had the leather detail which is always my favorite, it gives me that edge that I am always looking for. And of course I had to pair it with this cheetah infinity scarf, I mean does it get any better than that?

Look No. 2: This tribal cardigan is the perfect piece to throw on while running out the door. You can put it with about anything and look like you have it all together. Which lets be honest, what mom really does?!

Look No. 3: The second I walked in Koo De Ker I saw this leather sleeved letterman and new I had to have it. I’m pretty sure when Hanes is ten he’ll think I’m pretty cool for wearing it too. Oh and the black fur vest over top? It’s a must!

Look No. 4: Let’s not forget this perfect tan wrap coat! I knew I liked it, but once I put it on I fell in love!! It was the perfect fit and that fall/winter piece that we all need. Not to mention it’s ideal for little Hanes to cuddle with me in. I may finally be the favorite!

Cara is a wonderful mom, so dedicated to her little boy, and still manages to look amazing and put together in any situation. Koo De Ker wants us all to have the perfect pieces that make us feel and look like a million bucks, so KDK is making it happen for you!
