9 Autumn Essentials For Back To School Mums

With the new fashion season and kids finally back to school for the new term, it is not just the kiddos that need new threads and various essentials it is us Mummas too. We wanna look our best and look put together at the school gates, even though half the time we probably feel like stir fried shit and want to rock up to the school gates in our pyjamas.

With a few new season essentials and finding our feet back to the new term madness.

Calendar
No wall chart in site to keep track on what is going on throughout the month, make sure you have a planner or phone to hand, to mark all those important dates coming up, such as birthday parties, ballet, football lessons and when you have family and friends coming over to dinner. 

Flash Cards
Learning on the go or school run to get some extra practice in with the kids, or by yourself! It is always a great idea to learn something new. Plus it keeps your little ones on the ball and makes great practice for them depending on the age of course, plus great fun can be had whilst traveling on the weekends.

Wipes
I can not stress the importance enough of baby wipes, we love the Water Wipes range, but I spied that Dove now has a kids range of wipes. But whatever brand you go for, these are must have essential for your Mumma bag, not just to clean up sticky kids, but us parents too can benefit from wipes, especially those mad rush mornings and coffee spilled all of you. 

Large bag
This season, make a statement with this must have large bags. With so many out on the high street, you are literally spoilt for choice.

Trainers
We gotta be comfortable for those in between dashes, so why not treat yourself to a fresh new pair of kicks for the term. 

Trench Coat
Aquascutum, always nail it each season, updating there must have trench coats. They are cool and classic and helps protect you from the windy weathers and will see you looking fashionable all the way up to winter, plus it can be styled numerous of ways making it not just perfect for the weekday but will have you looking sophisticated over the weekends too.

Snacks
A vital essential for us Mummas, not just for our kids. Who doesn't like a tasty treat or a healthy bite I mean we gotta eat too, so why not carry a snack or two, one for you, one the kids to keep you fuelled through the day. Not sure on what then why not check out something from Metcalfe to pop in your bag. 

Hair Care
Ok, yes ladies lets not shy away from it, be it first thing in the morning or an after school pickup, or even going into work, we want to look our best. I found a great online store Capital Hair and Beauty, that has everything and then some to give you fabulous healthy hair, I am loving my new found hot hair brush, giving me that just stepped out of the salon blow-dry, but unknowingly all done at home, whilst having the Leanora climbing my back and Milo purring at my feet.

Accessories
No outfit or look is complete with out a few accessories be it a feminine watch, to help keep you track of time or an elegant piece of jewellery such as a pair of earrings to complete your back to school look.

What have been your life saviors for the return back to school? How have you survived this first week and now in the second? I would love to hear your comments below.

Please note this is a collaborative post but all words come from the coffee fuelled ramblings of London Mumma.
