There are a few things you will need from your spring wardrobe. While versatility sits at #1 for most of us (that sunshine takes a little time to get toasty), if you’re a mum you’ll also need your pieces to be able to withstand some anticipated “weathering”.

You don’t have to scroll far through Rebecca Jobson's Instagram to see that she loves the sunshine, adventures and life as a mum so we thought she was the perfect person to chat to about what to shop this spring:

"Spring is the time to dust off those shades of black and grey and get some colour back into your life. Play with textures, prints & colours and don't be scared to clash! I'm obsessing over silk scarves this season as they add so much versatility to an outfit. Tie them in your hair, around your neck, or add some flare to your handbag strap. And add some straw accessories to top off your look. An oversized straw bag or a pair of rattan slides are my favourite go to picks!"

Scroll on to discover Rebecca's best picks for spring:
