A few weeks ago I was wearing my “you got this” sweat shirt from The Hood while doing daycare drop off. I passed another mum on the way out, juggling a toddler and a newborn, and she sparked up when she saw my top. “I need that” she said. It’s amazing the difference three words on a top can make.

I usually save my “you got this” top to wear on long road trips or days when I know Little Miss is going to throw a few challenges my way. It’s comfortable and fit for purpose but every time I look down or look in the mirror, I’m reminded that I do have this. I’m strong and I can do it.

On the days you want to send a message to the world, these are the tops that will help you say it loud and proud! Some for mum, some for mums-to-be and even some for the kids.
