What to wear on the school run

Doing school run is not an easy task and getting the kid(s) to school on time is about all most mothers can manage for the early morning drop off. Some days it can be hard finding the time to get dressed before the school run, let alone put on some make-up.

When it comes to what to wear on the school run one can decide to look comfortable and not to care about what others will think about them or one can decide to go all chic and stylish to make other moms feel jealous.

This post has been inspired by Gwen Stefani who always looks as if she has stepped off a catwalk show on school runs. Get inspired by how on how to dress like a super mom on the school runs.
