...I know that no one outside of Notting Hill is going to forgo the handiness of jeans and boots for the school run, so, with this in mind I thought I'd have to re-create this look with a more feminine and contemporary overtone.There are three keys items to purchase to work with your current jeans, tops, coats and boots.
The first it this shirt from M&S, a Limited Collection Long Sleeve Floral top at £29.50.
The second is a knitted sleeveless cowl top £32 from Topshop. The cowl detail is important because it works with all bust sizes. You can wear it done up, undone and even on its own with vest top underneath and a skinny belt over it.
The third is probably the one most of you will worry about but it is bang on trend as they like to say and adds a wow factor when it comes to the necessary and ubiquitous 'car' cardigan. Topshop again, it is the knitted Fairisle long cardigan £55
For £116.50 you've got three separates to mix and match which will work with existing wardrobe items. Clashing the floral and fairisle will be a serious style injection to boot.
