I honestly had no preference on gender when I was pregnant. I had a huge bump (9lb 12 baby!) so I was convinced that we were having a boy and I was happy with that. I must admit though, a small part of me was delighted when we saw she was a little girl and the main reason for that is…the outfits! It’s terribly shallow of me to admit that but I love shopping for my little girl. When I was young, I would spend hours dressing up my Barbie dolls in different outfits and then when I became a teenager and beyond, I loved fashion for myself. But because we don’t have mountains of space and babies grow out of clothes and shoes at the speed of light, I try not to buy too much and it’s harder than you’d think to create a capsule wardrobe for a one-year-old.

As a working mum, I sometimes find it hard to be stylish. Gone are the days where I could spend my Saturdays leisurely browsing the shops in town or my evenings soaking in a nice bath with the latest copy of Grazia. As a result, I feel a bit behind. The typical ‘mum uniform’ seems to be comfy jeans, a t-shirt and Converse and although I love that look (I own two pairs of the latter) I don’t want to give up on my fashionable days quite yet and I try to keep up with the youngsters as much as I can (urgh, using the work ‘youngster’ makes me feel 100).
