We live in Aus. After 2 years of basically no winter I have nailed summer SAHM dressing. I'm going back to the UK with the DC for April and I have NO idea what you're all wearing.

SO, inspire me please. What are you wearing as your general day to day look at the moment?

(Alternative thread title could have been "what should I pack?")

Well, I'd pack a couple of pairs of skinny jeans, plain long sleeved tops and light weight cardis. Pick a couple of scarves which match several outfits. You may get away with summery skirts later in the month. I'd say ballet pumps or similar as it's likely to be too cold for open toes . I'd probably also pack a couple of light weight sweaters. I hope this helps, have a good trip.

Yes to skinny jeans. Tops could be anything from Breton style tops to fine knit wool jumpers (in spring colours) to t shirt with a cardi (fitted cardi again spring colours)

Colured skinny jeans have been popular over here. It depends if you're a colourful sort of person. I don't suit them but have two friends who live in coloured jeans and look fab.

I will probably be shot for suggesting this but have a look at Boden, White Stuff websites for inspiration. Or Toast and Whistles. Boden and WS are very sahm and toast and whistles are perhaps a little trendier.
Also look at White Company website. Very sahm relaxed style.

Skinny jeans, long sleeved tops, light sweaters, couple of dresses, scarves. Make sure you also have a light coat - a cotton trench coat type thing is good.

Today (lovely sunny day and relatively warm)

pale wash skinnies
black silk t-shirt
This jacket
A lightweight scarf

a fabric biker
maybe a couple of skirts (maxi?) with a denim jacket?
Converse, maybe some ballet shoes
lightweight scarves
cotton jumpers or cotton sweatshirts
maybe a light cropped trench coat?

Today is sunny - I'm wearing a white shell top, straight jeans with massive turn up, gold sandals and a red cashmere cardigan - colder I'd swap the sandals for ankle boots and add a navy down coat.
