First-time mum to twins Frankie and Harper, and known for her effortlessly cool street style, daily antics and supermum powers; we spent the day with Nikki and the girl gang to talk fashion, fun times, and the future.
What does Mother’s Day mean to you?
A day to appreciate all the hard work us mums do. It’s a tough gig!
What are the top three highlights when it comes to being a mum?
An excuse to watch Disney movies all day, having two little besties that come with me everywhere, and the unconditional love. I can be having a super average day but they still manage to make me smile.
How would you define your personal style and has this changed since becoming a mum?
Whatever is comfortable and doesn’t have yesterday’s baby lunch on it. I live in active-wear and fat pants but that has always been my go-to.
What are your go-to staple pieces for daily mum duties?
It’s usually a baggy tee and some Nike tights for all the exercise I’m not going to be doing, so I’ll usually pair that with a denim jacket.
What do you envision Frankie and Harper’s style looking like in the future?
I’d imagine them to dress completely opposite to each other because they’ve been forced into matching clothes since day dot. I imagine Frankie to be the more sporty sister and Harper to be more of a girly dresser.
What’s one style tip your mum has passed onto you and you will pass onto your girls?
That it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed – but as above I’m usually dressed for comfort, sorry mum.
What’s on your Mother’s Day wishlist?
A sleep in! But I have been hinting at a trip to Sydney for the weekend for a bit of shopping, I think that’s fallen on deaf ears so hopefully I get that sleep in and non-grumpy babies that give me lots of cuddles for Mother’s Day.
What advice do you have for other mums out there doing the hardest job in the world?
A happy mum is the best kind of mum. Remember to do things for yourself too, you’re number one – don’t forget that.
