Mums have very little time to themselves at the best of times and the work doesn’t stop once we drop the kids to school.


Whether we’re off to work ourselves, going home to catch up on household tasks or minding our younger kids, a mum’s work day never ends.


So, we all could do with some simple wardrobe staples for those times we have to fly out the door and want to look presentable.


These are six simple items, ideal for the school pick-ups and drop-offs.


1. Dressy jumper

Even if you’re wearing your oldest jeans and scruffy shoes, a cute jumper can lift your whole outfit and distract from everything else.


We love this pretty pink and black one from the V by Very range at Littlewoods. It’ll be perfect with your favourite blue jeans.

2. Comfy shoes

Whether you’re driving, walking or cycling to pick up the little ones, a good pair of shoes is essential.


It’s hard to beat a pair of Converse and this white leather version are easy to keep clean. Plus they’ll go with all of your school run outfits.

If you’re walking or cycling and need to keep your hands free, why not try a trusty backpack like this one from New Look? Big enough to keep both all of your essentials and their treasures.
