Says it all really- I feel I need to look more mum like. Usually work 2 days per week in a non office enviroment (think social worker for dress code) but I'm on maternity leave at the moment.

I need jeans, tops, jumpers (have lots of hoodies)- I love day time dresses but could do with hints on shoes/ boots as I hate shopping for shoes and dont pay enough attention to them which lets my look down imho.

I'm 5ft 6 and size 10- athletic build type.

Zara and Massimo Dutti for clothes?
Boden if you want to look like a "Mum".
French Sole ballet slippers are great for dressing up jeans etc.
I find it too hard to relate to the shoe problem to be of use. I see shoes everywhere I look. grin

I tend to find 1 pair and them literally wear them out! Apart from my trainers- as a runner I always love wearing them comfort first- lol!

Oasis and Gap for Jeans - best on the high street
Zara, Warehouse and Oasis for tops
Boden for plain knitwear that lasts
Oasis or Dorothy Perkins or Zara for day dresses
New Look for on trend shoes that dont costs the earth (eg going out shoes)
Clarks for super comfy ballet pumps for daytime wear
Topshop for a bag (a trendy bag can lift an otherwise plain outfit)
Dorothy Perkins for few pieces of costume jewellery)
