Nadia + Wittner Part 2
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Go into Astons room and smile at him, then make myself a strong soy latte.
What’s the best thing about being a new mum?
Apart from the happiness they bring to you just thinking about them, probably the perspective they bring. What were you doing before them? What am I doing now that can help them? I can’t imagine my life without him, he is only 3 and a half months but has a strong little character and is so bossy! My husband and I have already given him the nickname, “Bossman”.
How has motherhood changed your world?
It has made it a million times better! He’s a little time waster, hours with him go way too fast, I never want to leave him.
Do you have any secret styling tips?
It’s all about focussing on the classics. I think basics can actually make or break your outfit. It’s about investing in key pieces, like that statement leather jacket, a blazer, a pair of ankle boots and a bag. They’re the building blocks of our wardrobes, so instead of buying lots of pieces, I’d rather save up and splurge on those important ones. Yes, you will have fewer items in your wardrobe but they are quality pieces that last for season after season. When I’m having a bad day and I don’t know what to wear – I throw on a white shirt and blazer and I always feel a million!
