People often don’t know until they become a parent or a mother- the importance of the school Run. It is the impending role that every parent will either love or loathe.
This has been a steady realization – I have come to encounter in the last couple of years. I never realized that once you have a child you couldn’t just get out of bed and run your child to their destination. I have learnt through many birthdays, meetings and school runs the importance of this. So let’s be clear when mummies do the school run I have learnt – that you either go back to basics or you just go all the way out. Going all the way back to basics I suggest a great fitting gym kit- and in all black. Trainers I always think NIKE are the most comfortable and practical. The Rosche design of trainer is simple and can be worn everywhere. A bag can be a simple Chanel WOC (wallet on chain). I like to either throw on a nice 3/4 overcoat to mask the fact I am wearing a gym kit or a nice fur gilet.
Now as we are approach the winter months and coming into a new and colder season you can now whip out your Minks, Fox and Rabbit Furs.
Jeans and a shirt with classic boots and flats are also great. I know a young mummy who nails this look so well thrown together with a Kelly bag. Also don’t forgot your sunglasses. If you are going all the way out I suggest a blazer or long overcoat. Balmain do great for both or Zara. I have so much respect now for my own mother who always made me look fabulous as a child and made herself look equally amazing with pearls, navy raincoats and riding boots. My mother always looked groomed and fabulous.
For birthday parties I highly suggest you research the location of where your attending.
You don’t want to turn up in a ball gown to Gambadoo likewise you don’t want to end up at The Dorchester in your tracksuit (unless their cashmere of course).
I think you cannot go wrong if you are attending a restaurant or Hotel gathering in a nice pair of espadrilles or a 100m Christian louboutin is comfortable if you choose a heel. A simple silk skirt or jeans with a polo neck / V-neck. For shoes you can never go wrong with a Chanel shoe – any heel hight- Ballets, heels and espadrilles. They are extremely comfortable and they just always miraculously work.
Whatever it is you can now make the school run your runway.
