How would you describe your style?
Simple, understated and polished.
How has it changed since you became a mum?
I definitely dress more for comfort these days. And my wardrobe has to be versatile so I can wear something smart for a meeting and then still look appropriate for school pick-up.
What are your go-to accessories to instantly lift an outfit?
Shoes. I can wear a shift dress and sneakers for a day at the park with my girls and then slip on some heels with the same dress and instantly feel more elegant.
What are the three most essential items in your wardrobe?
White tees, tailored blazer, jeans.
What staples should every woman invest in?
I think it's important to invest in the things you wear the most. For me, that's a tote bag, a tailored blazer, a leather jacket, jeans and leather pants.
