Although bright colours and pattern are saturating the shops at the moment, having neutral pieces in your wardrobe as well as in your life in general allows for an element of calm in the chaotic world of parenthood. Here are some fashion pieces you might just find some inner peace with…They are also good “oh God, we’re late, dress and run” week day style solutions.
This is the next best thing without having to resort to the “Activewear” option. Comfortable, hides any lumps and bumps and casual chic.
Two tone oversized jumper by ME + EM
Jeans by H&M
Grey Gazelles by Adidas
This outfit provides a blank canvas for a gorgeous piece of jewellery or simply throw on a leather jacket for a cool, calm and collected look (even if underneath it all there is a month’s worth of unshaven leg hair, yesterday’s bra and chipped toenail polish).
Boatneck sweater by Zara
Boyfriend jeans by Hush
Copeland sneakers by Air & Grace
Perfect for work or home, the pale pink chinos are a nod to SS17 9chino? Check. Pink? Check.). Plus who doesn’t love an oversized cashmere scarf…in leopard print???
Waterfall cardigan by River Island
Daphne top by Hush
Cashmere scarf by Crumpet Cashmere
Chino trousers by Zara
Studded flat shoes by Dune
Illuminating tinted moisturiser and concealer by Pixi – gives just a hint of colour with a dewy glow so as not to be completely bare faced and scare the kids. The handy concealer in the lid means it is fast and easy to use.
Ambient Lighting palette by Hourglass – I LOVE Hourglass powders. They always make me look better than I may actually feel and this marble effect palette is pretty to look at and fabulous to use.
Then, once home or in the office after the school run, take time for a coffee and write out your week ahead…
