I have to say, mornings, I've got the routine, down to a T! Coffee, washing up, shower and dressed, oh and I make sure Leanora is ready too! But getting out of the actual door is an actual struggle, making sure you have got, the right outfit, shoes that actually match since you have been up since 5 am, your keys, oyster and bank card, sod it, the mobile can stay in and charge! But most importantly, we all want to do look good at the gates, so before we leave the house we want to look good!
As we walk to preschool 8/10 I want to be comfortable in what I wear as well as looking good. Be it in a pair of trusty jeans, athleisure and the satisfyingly sweet striped top, that my wardrobe has come accustomed too and which I slip on, like welcoming an old friend home.
We all have a wardrobe staple, Mumma's or not and that's something we all love and passionate about no matter who you are and where you live in the world we share one passion that connects us all and that is a striped t-shirt, white shirt, perfect jacket, the ultimate perfect pair of jeans and some comfy trainers to get us from A-Z.
The perfect striped top is a must-have essential wardrobe piece, so if you spend a little extra on it, it will certainly pay off as it is easy to wear in multiple fashionable ways, be it worn dressed up with a skirt, or laid back with chinos or looking like a Parisian paired with a skinny jeans or dungarees.
You can not go wrong with a pair of jeans, they hold lots of movement, so perfect for chasing after the kids or getting them to make a dash to school or sitting crossed legged in the middle of the hall whilst at ballet lessons. No matter the style as well being not ironed in my case it is a sure school run style essential we all need in our wardrobe.
There is nothing like a comfortable pair of trainers, especially for those days when you are pounding the pavements, you want to make sure you can get the kids in swiftly whilst your feet are feeling great and looking good. I do like to opt for a classic pair or trainers such as Converse or Stan Smith's, but I do like a good pair of leopard or star print.
School run style is not complete without a jacket, especially for those crisp mornings. A quick slip on of a biker jacket, will automatically edge up your look and can even be thrown over a light knit or layered under a warmer jacket in the winter months, but it even looks great teamed with a dress or a Friday night out with friends for drinks worn with a boyfriend jeans teamed with some heels. A biker jacket, no matter the colour is a certain wardrobe staple.
As you see I like to keep it simple, but with some good classic pieces, that can withstand, the coffee stains, the chocolate sticky fingers and crumbs from the croissant on the go in the mornings, but somehow I always find in my hair! My main thing is not just being fashionable, but comfort is key, so be it a suited momma heading into the city, the athleisure mumma who is sodding off the gym and meeting other Mummas and friends at the coffee shop, or are you a dreamer like me and wish you could just turn up in your pyjamas?
