I picked these two for when mommy and daddy need a date night, assuming your kids are considerate enough to let you have some time to yourselves :-). The dress on the left is the old faithful LBD. Its Osman Yousefzada for mango and the metallic gold racerback is a different take on the classic LBD, its hot! Vera Wang is one of my favourite designers and she never disappoints. The shape, colour and length of the next dress creates timeless elegance but the ruffle trim and faceted-stone appliqué at the bust keeps it interesting.
Comfortable shoes are a must-have if you're doing the school run... in fact just keeping up with your super-energetic kid(s).
These classic ballerina pumps are a wardrobe staple and are a great everyday shoe which go with almost anything. Topshop £25
The gladiator sandal is great for the summer and handy when going for a casual look, I would pair it with a maxi dress or denim shorts. £30 from Oasis
Bright colours are all the rave this season but if you are not brave enough to head-to-toe, then these should help. KG by Kurt Kurger £75
aww....I love these super cute Rupert Sanderson pumps. The oversized satin bows give it a playful air and the burnished gold metallic leather is ultra stylish.
Finally, my favourite fashion item, the handbag! All the young mothers I know always carry so much with them so I have found the perfect bags.
