This week’s tried and tested has been everywhere with us recently. The perfect lightweight mac which stows neatly in its own little bag and protects from unexpected showers is a must-have in every change bag. Easy to wash, quick to dry, takes a second to get from bag to back and it looks rather cute too. We’ve tried it and love it.

I’ve often wondered if matching your outfit to your tot’s is perceived as cute or naff. In my opinion it’s cute, (so I’ll put my fingers in my ears so as not to hear otherwise) provided they take your lead and not vice versa.
Inspired by Zara’s mama & me ballet flats I thought why not put together two looks for you and your mini me, so when I saw that Marks and Spencer also do a grown-up ditsy floral mac I couldn’t resist. So if you fancy a mummy/daughter look, here’s a little something for you. And let’s face it, you can’t go wrong with a floral and stripe combo.
