The School gate – Day 1

Many of us are in the middle of the school holidays which is when there is no routine, relaxed mornings and general quality time spent with our children. My twins of 11 have just left Junior school and will be embarking on their Senior school life in September so trust me I have spent 6 years being at the school gate!!!!!

September is the month that many mums begin to dread, it could be your little one is starting reception which will pull at any of our heart strings but also comes the added pressure of the school gate and the following;

  • What do I wear?
  • What will the other mums be like?
  • Will I like them/will they like me?
  • I’m going back to work so will be the mum who only pops in on the odd occassion
  • Do I get involved with the PTA?

And the list goes on…..let me take some of the pressure away by showing you a few simple outfits that will ensure you look simple, stunning and chic every day. Remember these items can be worn together or deconstructed to mix & match with others.
A Quilted jacket, this one is from H & M and is £29.99

Add in a neutral toned shirt with crochet detailing. I really like this one from M & S and is a fab price of £35.00

The good old pair of jeans, a great basic, base neutral colour pair of trousers essential for your wardrobe. This pair is the Amelie super skinny, available in River Island and £40.00

And finally add in a great pair of ankle boots. I like the Genn ankle boot currently being stocked in Aldo.

Again, a neutral tone which compliments this outfit but will look amazing with other items such as dresses, skirts, trousers etc…

Tomorrrow, I will show you another outfit, a confident mum with a huge smile is what you will be at the start of term.

lots of love
