I did the same! I used a personal shopper in our local department store which made the whole process super quick and efficient and I was pleased with the results.

Absolutely agree about the new wardrobe. I started my childcare arrangements a week early each time so that I would have extra time for settling them in if needed (it wasn't in either case but I felt less desperate), and also to make sure I had a couple of days to myself for buying work clothes I felt really good in. This helped me feel confident going back instead of struggling into my pre-baby trousers.
