Jools Oliver’s Summer Stripes And Casual Cool

She may have three kids and another on the way but yummy mummy Jools Oliver is as stylish as ever.

It’s hard to know what to wear on a long hot summers day, especially if you are running round after children. Plus Jools has the added pressure of having to dress up just in case there are paparazzi waiting to snap her.

So top marks to the former model for looking cool and collected in her t-shirt and shades as she took her brood for a walk near their house in Primrose Hill.

What’s impressive about Jools is that she is  managing the children on her own at the moment as her chef husband  is involved with a new TV show about the education system.

Jamie, who is dyslexic, is setting up his own school in London for people that dropped out of mainstream education. The programme is currently in production and due to be aired early in 2011.

His school dinners challenge may have been tough, but this takes it to a whole new level as he will be responsible for education as opposed to food.

Therefore he’s been in no end of meetings with local education executives and TV researchers to get it right.

We hope he gets it all done by the time Jools gives birth in September!

The couple already have three daughters, Daisy, Petal and Honey and this time they have their fingers crossed for a boy.

Whatever happens, the baby is guaranteed to be gorgeous if it takes after Jools.

Or for a variation on the stripe theme, try French Connection stripe top which comes in navy and pink or brown and mustard. It’s one of the new-in items at Very.

For really hot days, the Love Label stripe tunic top with bow is cool, comfortable and chic – perfect for summer.
