My daughter's Holy Communion is coming up and I'm looking for an outfit to wear to the church. I want something that is smart and feminine but that won't be seen on other mums.

We are also planning to have a fun sports day in the back garden so I'm also looking for something smart/casual to change into so that I can play with the kids but that will still look good.

At the moment I'm a big fan of mid-priced labels such as Pied a Terre, LK Bennett and Hobbs, which is newly available from Arnotts.

Expect to pay about €200 for a dress; and they won't be walking the streets!

Try Hobbs' limited edition floral mac, €286, from Arnotts. Bold, flamboyant yet feminine, wear it over a simple shift dress to the church.

Also from Hobbs is the lady-like but suitably quirky 'Harriet' headpiece, with unusual raffia trim and seashells!

Team with Hobbs' tribal inspired 'Rache' dress which looks sophisticated in its burnt umber and burgundy tones.

Divine Boutiques, Maynooth & Malahide, have some uber feminine pieces such as a dotty pink duster coat, €219, and a white dress finished off with a girly pink bow, €190.

Finally for after the ceremony why not slip into a pair of white trousers and a pretty floral blouse and your favourite pair of flat thong sandals for a look that is chic but comfortable enough to run around the garden in!
