Just as the Carpenters sang, rainy days and Mondays always get me down. But nothing a good outfit can’t remedy! Summer rain can be notoriously hard to dress for, there is a fine balance between looking like you’re off to sea in a bright yellow mac and wellington boots – and looking like you’re a teenager at a wet and muddy music festival. Strong basics are the key to a stress free rain look. Swap sandals for espadrilles or this seasons fashion trainers, and swap the cardigan for a stylish trench. There are some great sale buys to be had right now on trench coats and I strongly believe they are an investment item you will wear year after year. Hope these little sale buys will brighten up this wet and rainy Monday… Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 09.34.29

Becoming a Mother does not mean you have to have a personality edit… but it does call for a wardrobe edit.

The tight pencil skirts and towering heels are best kept for date nights and instead I have welcomed with open arms the seasons block heels, Aquazurra style flats, a lot of hard wearing denim (must be soft) in the form of cut-offs, ripped jeans and seventies a-line skirts. Striped shirts worn oversized hide a multitude of sins and ‘statement’ tops give an allure of style even if you’ve chucked on yesterdays look from the bedroom floor.

Add a mani pedi, preferably done at the weekend whilst the little people are on ‘dad-time’ and you can pop to the local salon, and ta-da your look is complete!

The Wardrobe Edit inspiration board…  this week its oversized shirts, stripes and denim.
