Ahh, layering, otherwise known as ‘getting dressed when it’s cold’.  It’s a word we see everywhere in style tips as soon as autumn arrives (here included!) and yet, it’s pretty much a given when dressing on a colder day, non?

Runway to School run style

As a newbie to the ‘school run style’ thing I have to say it’s not all as we may be led to believe.  No Prada alongside P.E. bags, nor competitive mums catwalking across the playground (not where I live in SW London, anyway!). But this is a subject that does cause controversy; you only have […]
