'I get dressed up for the school run – mums shouldn't stop making an effort'
A mum has vowed to treat her school runs like a catwalk for a month to inspire other mums to dress the way they want without shame.
After her six-year-old is fed and dressed for the day, Zoe Fennings has been getting herself dolled up and posting her fashionable ‘fits on TikTok.
Zoe, from Kent, UK, explained: ‘Just because you have the title “mum”, it doesn’t mean you have to stop making an effort with your appearance and not feel confident or stylish in what you wear.
‘For the next 30 days, I’m sticking to showing my daily outfits over on TikTok, including the days I do the school run, in the hope that people can feel inspired to dress as they desire and not worry too much about other people’s opinions.’
Zoe, who’s called ‘glamorous’ by the other mums at the playground, says that looking good makes her feel good.
‘This doesn’t mean I’d dress inappropriately and rock up to school in just underwear,’ she adds, ‘but being a mum isn’t always baggy jumpers and joggers.
‘I think it’s important to always look respectable, but as long as you feel good and are confident in what you wear, I’m all for it.’
Her looks include black trousers paired with a black asymmetrical crop top, black sunnies and tan sandals, and an orange shorts and long-sleeved crop top co-ord set with white flatform sandals.
Zoe went on to pair the same orange shorts with an oversized white collared shirt, orange sandals and an orange purse.
She also donned a variety of different coloured cropped tank tops with a pair of high-waisted tan trousers and sandals.
Zoe opts for more casual fits too, like a pair of white drawstring shorts, a beige crop tank top, and a blue oversized collared shirt over the top with some white foam sandals.
‘Fashion has always been a huge part of my life,’ she said. ‘If sharing my outfits can bring some inspiration, then I’ll be happy.’
