As I've been asked, I thought I'd share with you what I wore for the photos that appeared yesterday...
I got only a few hours notice for this photoshoot and with the no black and no denim rule AND having to get the kids dressed too, it was a real challenge. My twins are not yet in school but the Mail really wanted a uniform on them so I had to buy their new nursery uniform 6 months in advance. Thanks to a very understanding school secretary & good old M&S, it wasn't as difficult as I'd thought.
My own outfit ended up being what I was actually wearing that day, due to time pressures. I suppose it kept things realistic if nothing else! I added a statement necklace from New Look and had my hair blow-dried at Peter Mark in Forestside and my make-up done by Emma Hanna at Space NK on the Lisburn Road. It was lovely to not have to worry about hair and make-up and just focus on keeping things chilled for the kids.
So the photoshoot was for a National newspaper, but my outfit cost less than £100. The jeans are from Sainsbury's (£18), my top is from Dunnes (£7), my leather patent pumps from Clarks Outlet (£20 similar) and my coat from the Boden clearance last year (£40). Necklace from New Look (old) and my sunglasses from M&S (£9.50).
I've no more professional photos to share now so it is really back to normal tomorrow. I help out in a church on a Wednesday, while the girls are at playgroup so it'll be a slightly more dressed up look. See you all then and a final thanks to everyone for your lovely comments, emails and messages. It's been an amazing week so far and it's only Tuesday!
