It’s back to school time and after 6 weeks of summer lazing about in flipflops and trainers, I’m sending my kids in to school for the new term where they can take on the world in their new shoes!
The start of September is often a time for newness and cranking things up again, so just like Coco Chanel said, I too will be keeping my head, heels and standards high with my own new back to school shoes!
New shoes are always exciting and especially school shoes because the start of term is the one time when everyone looks clean and well turned out – before the games of football in the playground take the shine off their shoes and autumn school trips walking through mud dull the soles.
My children’s shoes are from the F&F School range at Tesco which promises a scuff resistant coated leather so I hope that they will still look as new by half term, but I especially liked the anti bacterial lining of my daughter’s shoes and the micro-fresh technology to reduce odours in my son’s shoes so that at least our hallway will be pleasant smelling at the end of the school day!

I particularly like that my daughter’s tights are super strength and bobble resistant as she seems to go through tights at quite a rate! These are really thick and feel like great quality, plus they will keep her warm in the winter.
So with our shoes all sorted for the school run this week, I just have to come up with what I’m going to wear?! The kids are easy – they have a uniform!
If you are doing the school run for the first time this September and want to be more stylish than jeans and a T shirt but are unsure of what to wear, here is a vlog I recorded with a few style tips for mums:
