"I’m not an expert on the school run quite yet, but with Chloe starting nursery soon I’ve got ‘back to school’ on the brain. I’ve put together some fun bits and bobs to invest in for you and your little ones when term time starts."


"As well as preparing the kids, I’ve also found myself thinking of easy through on pieces for the school run. I’ve recently discovered On the rise sweatshirts emblazoned in neon with your neighbourhood on the front, injecting a bit of fun into a mummy wardrobe. I will also be wearing my own [Olivia Rubin Atelier] design of brick print sweatshirts, created for Fashion Targets Breast Cancer. Check out Zoe Karssen for even more witty slogans."


"Every child wants a new bag to start the term. My go to favourite, Gap, has some super cute styles including Owl and Cat backpacks. Kipling’s new School of Colour range is definitely worth checking out, too. With cool and vibrant colours in fun styles and top marks for functionality, they are perfect for students of all ages."

Slippers and shoes

"Indoor slippers are key for nursery. I recently discovered French brand, Easy Peasy,which is stocked here in shops including Childrensalon. Available in a range of cute motifs and colours for little feet to slip on and off easily with elasticated tongues, rubber soles and made from soft leather, chemical free. Velcro is also the easier option when it comes to outdoor shoes as they encourage the little ones to learn to put on shoes by themselves. I’ve got my eye on the mini matching Adidas Stan Smith trainers (available at Schuh) for some extra cute 'fashion twinning' at the school gates!"


"Nowadays, labelling has been made far easier with iron on and stickers, instead of having to sew a label onto every item of clothing. After trawling the internet I found that My Name Tags has the best choice of BPA free iron on stickers for all products and clothing. The new Hello Kitty range has proven popular and if you want to get the kids involved they can even help you design their own. One holiday activity to tick off the list!"

Playtime Favourites

"I’ve been advised (maybe because I’m in fashion) to keep it easy and simple when it comes to dressing Chloe for nursery! The mix and match T-shirts at Gap Kids are always a cute alternative and won’t break the bank. The newest baby brand, which is extra sweet and on my radar, is Peacheyboo. With cake-inspired prints, from macarons, to pink raspberry tarts and mint green sugar mice, these fun leggings and tops are a winner and are all printed on super soft organic cotton. I’m waiting for them to bring out some matching mummy tees!"
