How do you love to dress your kids?
It makes me happy to see my daughter in a cool dress with a fun print on it, especially when she lets me put some shoes on her that aren’t her bright pink Crocs! I love my son to wear colourful trousers and soft tops.

V by Very embroidered badges shift dress, KDVJX, from £14, Mini V by Very Feed Me Printed t-shirt, 9EGNR, from £6.

Marvel Avengers Pyjamas set, CMXMX, from £16 (three pack), Ladybird Metallic spot dress, 9QR4H, from £12

Do they have their own individual styles?
Yes, but I guess it is an extension of my style and how I would like to dress if I could!

How would you describe it?
Colourful, fun, bright, relaxed and cool.

What do the kids want to dress in?
My son loves wearing his Spider-Man costume and my daughter loves clothes with pockets – I think it makes her feel grown up to walk along with her hands in them.

How do you accessorise?
Bandanas are good. I quite often tie one around my daughter’s neck. It looks cute and doubles up as a bib.

How do you dress them for the British weather?
I always have a big bag with a spare set of clothes for each child, a mac and a jumper. I rarely need it, but the day I don’t bring it will be the day I do!

What clothes make you feel amazing?
For me, fashion should be flattering, comfortable and fun. I believe a good outfit can make for a better day, so I rarely go for the ‘safe’ option.

How do you style up basic pieces?
I like to mix and match in unpredictable ways like styling a Breton top with a gold skirt and pink shoes.

Give us a fast, fashionable outfit for the school run…
Dungarees and jumpsuits are great as they are a whole outfit in one. They are so easy to style and always look cool.

Tell us about your blog…
I started it to change misconceptions that mums can’t dress, to share breastfeeding friendly outfits with other mums and to challenge myself to wear good outfits while on maternity leave!
