Follow Friday: School Gate Style

A huge Follow Friday goes to Avril over at School Gate Style.

I came across this blog via an article on ‘mum blogs’ in the Daily Mail. What is unusual about this blog is that yes, while it is written by a mum, and is for other mums, it focuses on us mums ourselves rather than our children.

The blog is very regular and features fashion and styles aimed at school gate mums. It has proved an absolute blessing for me, who after the birth of baby Jelly, was becoming a ‘joggers hidden under a coat’ type creature at the school gate. I would look at other mums and wonder how they had the time to look as good as they do. School Gate Style changed all that, with simple stylish suggestions and tips – my fave being how to drape-tie a scarf. This blog has now pointed me in the direction of effortless style. And, all on a budget, with regular tip offs about sales and great sale items.

So a big thank you School Gate Style. You have saved me from the land of scraped back hair and unsexy mum coat. A MUST READ in my inbox every day.

    Wow – I am so chuffed and humbled – THANK YOU! Really appreciate the shout out and so pleased you enjoy my ramblings. On a day where I’ve been tired, hormonal and a tiny bit hungover, this has cheered me up no end. Thank you again Alina, Avril xx
