Q&A

How has your style evolved since becoming a mother?

Yes, my style has evolved. I still always want to try and look my best but comfort is now key. Long gone are the days of wearing stilettos from morning to night. My wardrobe has to be versatile, one minute I will be in a meeting, the next picking up kids and taking them to the playground. I'm always on the go.

Winter's coming, what will be a key purchase of yours in preparation?

A statement coat. I love layering in winter and a great coat is always the perfect way to complete a winter look.

When you’re on the go, what’s your run-around-town outfit go-to?

Jeans and a white T-shirt. It’s always my go to.

Any key wardrobe tips you’ll pass down to your daughters?

Invest in your staples - buy good quality items that you are likely to wear every day,

What’s your ideal Mother’s Day?

Waking up to cuddles and kisses and spending the day with my loved ones.

Any tips about styling the perfect 9-9 outfit? (desk through to dinner)

I’m all about accessories when it comes to the 9-9 outfit. Shoes, jewellery, bags, and sunglasses can really dress up or dress down any outfit. I often will wear a shift dress in the day with sneakers, sunnies and a cross body bag and quickly transform it into an evening look by swapping into heels, a clutch bag and adding statement jewellery.
