Instagram Mom of the Week: Tanaka Sotinwa @whatmummywore

Instagram Mom of the Week: Tanaka Sotinwa @whatmummywore

WORDS: ASHLEY POAG

Britain-based stylist and mother of two Tanaka Sotinwa, shows us that just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you can’t be fabulous.

When stylist and fashion blogger Tanaka Sotinwa became a mom, it didn't mean her love of fashion had to die. For this stylish mom of two, a baby bump just became a new accessory. Tanaka shares tips on how to keep the entire family fashion-forward on her warm, chic, and inviting Instagram account @whatmummywore

We love Tanaka's chic take on her personal style. Whether she's rocking skinny jeans or long pleated skirts with statement jewelry, she always looks spot on.

Baby gear isn't always the most stylish accessory, but Tanaka appears to have all the grace and timeless style of Audrey Hepburn with a baby stroller to match!

Outfit of the Day (#OOTD) is a family affair. Both of Tanaka's adorable kids—Morayo-Hope and Judah—make regular appearances doned in playful stripes, colorful cardigans, and trendy items that mom purchased at her favorite shopping destinations.

Following in mom’s footsteps, Morayo-Hope already seems to know exactly what she likes. She is an OOTD pro. Many of the blog post on whatmummywore.com are written from her perspective.

Not to be outshone by his mum and sister, Judah pulls off some pretty cute looks of his own, too!

The family travels often to other countries like Paris, Zimbabwe, and Nigeria to visit extended family. During these trips Tanaka still manages to bring us fashion looks that inspire.

Team work makes the dream work. Tanaka often credits her husband for helping to make sure their daily routines go smoothly. Dad’s help in dressing and bathing the children keeps this super mom looking extra fly—and he’s pretty dapper himself!

#lookoftheday full on #zara with a touch of #mulberry. Thanks @lotionspotionsme for the pics 😀😘
