If I had £1 for every person that became a parent and decided there was nothing to dress their kids in and so they decided to launch their own line – I would be buying a LOT more handbags than I do right now.

No. This is not a paid for post. I don’t do those. This is me, being so impressed by the AW14 collection at M&S that I have decided to dedicate a whole post to it.

Now, I have done the rounds of the press days and there really are some great pieces out there this season. However – M&S gets my Style Headmistress Award for Most Improved!
