SABA Celeste Wool Suit Jacket, Wool Blend, Longline Shape, Woolmark Certified, Comes in French Navy

As we celebrate Mother’s Day, we also celebrate a woman’s ability to equally thrive outside the realm of motherhood. Meet Dr Louise Anderson, a General Practitioner with a predominant interest in skin cancer and women’s health, and a full-time mother of four.

My viewpoint on motherhood…

Ginger Rogers once said about Fred Astaire, “I can do everything he does, except backwards and in heels.” Well, I tend to think this describes motherhood, if you also add in: ‘whilst wrangling a screaming toddler, changing a baby’s nappy and talking to your boss over the phone about the latest patient satisfaction surveys.’ Mothers are the ultimate multitaskers.

My definition of balance…

There’s no such thing as balance, it’s a constant state of chaos. Just learn to embrace it, and do your best!


My personal approach to style…

Less is always more.

The values I hope to instil...

Strive for the highest, both in work and in play – and family is more important than anything in this world.


My advice to the modern working mother…

Trust your instincts, organization is key (excel spreadsheets are my life) and so is making time for you and your partner. My husband and I love a champagne in the spa to unwind on a Friday night.

My proudest career moment …

Making it through an entire day of seeing patients, whilst inadvertently wearing two different shoes and keeping a straight face.


My SABA winter edit…

It would have to be the Celeste Wool Suit Jacket and Wool Suit Pant in Navy…best cut I’ve tried in a pant suit!
