This is non-maternity, maternity style at it's best. Think Alexander Wang, Marni, Valentino, all your favourite designers, presented and modelled (so you know each look really does work) around the three different stages of pregnancy, and beyond.

GREY

4 Sep

Camilla-shift1
The hottest hue this season, it's all about grey.

I don't know what it is but there is something effortlessly chic about a grey blouse or shift?  And Madderson London have just re-emphasised this with their latest AW14 collection. The signature Camilla shift re-worked in Jaquard is case in point. As is their new addition Florence Blouse in grey. Pregnant and working in town? (Or simply looking for a statement maternity piece.) - You need look no further.

Shop here. I will be shopping here.

Love,

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BAG

3 Sep

So you know I am an accessories kind of girl? Well, with bags as the focus, or more precisely changing bags (which is where my mind is still at) it's always exciting to discover something new.

Love them or loathe them, having a baby requires this different kind of handbag. You need a carry-all, something big enough for all the baby essentials, that also comes with a shoulder strap. Hello baby-bag. More specifically the printed tote kind, a little sporty with masculine shape, and oh-so-practical. You know I am not usually a fan of anything that screams baby when it comes ...

KNITS

I have a feeling summer is on it's way out and there are only a few more weeks left of cropped looks and slides.... These past few mornings chunky knits have been calling me. I have managed to resist so far, however this has not stopped me looking out for new additions. This season the bigger the better, which is something I am really happy about, and is also great if you are with bump. You can't beat a cosey oversized woolly. Wear with leather leggings or those favourite skinnies for everyday style.

Currently I am drawn to any shade of grey ... Read More

PRINTS

Prints
When the weather or days activity calls for something a little more covered and pretty pastels or floral-print are not quite appropriate I will always reach for a pair of printed leggings (or Jeans depending on my/A's mood.) One of my favourite such brands is Our Little Lullaby and I have just seen a sneak-peak of their new season prints. How divine. Paired with a T-shirt or chunky knit this is easy-peasy mini-style. Great for both the girls and boys, winter or summer, little or large.

Which is your favourite? I would go for either penguin or cheetah. ...

SHIRT DRESSING

20 Aug

photo-111
It's that in between stage. Not warm enough for full-on summer dressing but still OK for bare legs to show off a bit of that holiday tan. My go-to? A shirt dress. Button front, perfect for breast feeding, just haven't had a chance to wear any other kind of dress this season, long sleeved, and great with a chunky knit if it decides to rain. Can't really make up it's mind these days can it...?

The shirt dress is also perfect as a maternity look. Loose-fitting to accommodate that bump and button (or wrap) front for when required post-baby. Isabella Oliver maternity have an ... Read More

HEY THERE!

Apologies for being so useless these past few weeks. No real excuses - Just sunshine, sea and relaxation. Those good intentions of 'working' just were not strong enough. I was overcome by all things Italia instead. Now sadly holidays are over and it's back to reality.

There is a good month of summer holiday's to go at home, and for the next further few weeks I am full time mum with two-in-tow. Boy is it hard keeping a three year old busy. One that has previously been used to going to the beach every day, and staying up until midnight each night socialising. (Thankfully the bedti ... Read More

LIBERTY PRINT

21 Jul

Liberty-print-tableware
I know I am probably extremely behind with my latest discovery but, in-case you are like me, thanks to baby and toddler distractions, I would like to introduce Liberty homeware. The tableware alone is just gorgeous. Dinner-party-décor upgrade anyone?

I must add, whilst we are here, liberty-print baby. The cutest cotton bloomers, blouses and dresses. And why not add a matching cotton bib to prettify the far from pretty weaning process? (Not long to go now...) It's at times like this I am so thankful I have girls.

Love,

YOUMI AND TEEPEE

15 Jul

Youmee-and-teepee
I am slightly obsessed with teepee tents at the moment and this latest discovery has got me very excited. Youmi and Teepee have just the most perfect teepees.

Chic, stylish and absolute fun. Youmi elephant would have to be my first choice, the yellow and grey design would fit the playroom colour scheme perfectly. I am extremely tempted...

Love,

PROJECT RED

14 Jul

baby
Last week I received a new aden + anais summer-weight sleeping bag ready for our impeding holiday.

From experience I have learnt that the 1 tog sleeping bags are still far too hot for Mediterranean climates, and a sheet or light blanket just doesn't work as an alternative. Evelyn's latest trick is to wriggle anything covering her up over her face, so I wouldn't feel comfortable her sleeping in anything but a sleeping bag.  Aden + anais is the obvious answer. Soft, snuggly muslin that is as light as the lightest sheet - to keep her cosey yet cool.

Whilst we are on ... Read More
