THE KNITTED CAPE

20 Jan

Luxe-tie-sweatshirt
On my days off I like to keep it simple, and comfy. My go-to piece right now happens to be a Donna Karen knitted poncho I purchased a few season ago, it just seems to go with anything, and most importantly works with that bump. Skinny jeans, a slouchy jumper dress or (dare I say it) leggings are all perfect partners.

With this in mind I have been on the look out for another similar style, just to add a bit of variety on those off-duty days. As said Donna Karen piece has proved, it should become another wardrobe staple that will remain season after season, pregnant or not.

WINTER SKIN

16 Jan

philosophy
I don't know about you but winter always plays havoc with my skin. Being nearly 8 months pregnant I have a little hormonal help on my side (that third trimester glow is peeking through) but cold weather and central heating are not the best combination for anyone's skin. Lack of sunshine does not help either. Usually about this time of year we are jetting off somewhere exotic, no such luck. How I am missing my winter sun.

On a more positive note there is help at hand, thanks to some great new skincare discoveries. (And those old favorites - Estee Lauder's advanced night repair is ... Read More

DREAMY

15 Jan

Saint-Lauren
'Who say's you can't re-invent a classic?' Indeed.

It's my big 3-0 c0ming up next month so for something to do, and because my husband recently asked for gift ideas, I have been having a little dream about what I might just love to receive - The re-worked Saint Lauren Cassandre has totally caught my eye. Isn't she dreamy? And what's even better, I haven't spotted her on any a WAG or celeb wanna-be.

OK, so Cassandre is not going to be very practical as a new mum with toddler and newborn in tow. But it's my birthday, and anyway, baby (and no-doubt A) will b ... Read More

MADDERSON LONDON STYLE DIARY

15 Jan

style-diary1
Just before Christmas I signed up with Madderson London to feature in their first ever style diary. So far I have styled three looks from their stunning collection of luxury maternity wear. You can follow each look here and on the Madderson website.

As well as a chic and stylish maternity collection, Madderson London have recently launched ready to wear. Their press party is at the end of the month and is sure to be a star studded event. Zara Tindall and Holly Willoughby are already big fans, both recently pictured wearing their designs. As you can imagine I am really excited to ... Read More

PICK ME UP

14 Jan

Topshop check shirt
I am now 32 weeks pregnant and feel like my wardrobe needs a little pick me up. By day I have been living in those favorite maternity skinnies, chunky knits and mannish shirts. The investment jeans are still going strong but up top I am struggling. Thanks to that inevitable baby bump, non-maternity styles are starting to look simply too small. There is nothing more unattractive than a pregnant woman trying to squeeze out the last few wears of her regular wardrobe when it just doesn't fit. Today's outfit (maternity jeans 9London and shirt Ralph Lauren) is my case in point. I just a ... Read More

THE TARTAN SNEAKER

14 Jan

celine-tartan-sneaker
The tartan sneaker, a simple, chic, slip-on, brought to you last fall by Celine and lusted after by myself ever since. Unfortunately said pair were a sell-out (let me know if you find where I can still purchase?! I am thinking these would be perfect for post-baby walking in style.) but you can now buy into the trend once again thanks to the high street (here) and at a fraction of the cost. I would hurry up though as these too are flying fast.

I love with a bare leg, but seeing as we are still in the throws of winter a leather pant and chunky sweater will have to do. Shall I?

BEDROOM DETAILS

So here it is, as promised in my resolutions post, the first interiors blog of 2014.

After recently finishing a year long stint of renovations, I'm talking new roof, windows, rendering, knocking down walls, re-building, re-plastering, bathrooms, painting, decorating and finally furnishing (all whilst living under said same roof, pregnant and with a toddler ) I like to think I know a little bit about interiors and design.

Pinterest is the best place to be when looking for interior style and design inspiration. When we began our house project I sta ... Read More

THE EVER-CHIC CAMILLA SHIFT

8 Jan

IMG_20140107_123004
Look three for my Madderson London style diary, featuring the Camilla shift dress. A chic everyday style statement that is just as stunning after dark.

I have been wearing this look a lot over the festive period, it's just so comfortable and effortless. At 30 weeks effortless when getting dressed is mandatory. Made from luxurious double-knit Italian jersey, with exquisite gold trim detailing, the Camilla Shift is more than just your regular maternity LBD. It's also surprisingly warm so perfect for these cold days we have been having. As with all ML pieces this is a styl ... Read More

BUNDLE ME

7 Jan

IMG_20131210_171330
A necessary accessory for winter is a soft and cosey footmuff of some sort for your stroller, to keep your little one warm. Blankets, forget it, they get kicked off in no time. (Well by A anyway.) Last winter I invested in a sand footmuff to match my Bugaboo Cameleon, this year I have been sent a JJ Cole Bundle me. In chic grey with beige sheepskin interior. Little A has never been more snugly (or stylish) whilst out and about.

My only qualm, which I must mention, is that the sheepskin is a pain to keep clean, especially with this weather we have been having. But, it wa ... Read More

RESOLUTIONS

6 Jan

be-in-love-with-your-life
I have been a little slack with my blog posts over the Christmas period. But I figure like me, you guys have all been enjoying your time off, over-indulging and relaxing, and so probably haven't had time to even notice (or miss me)...?

Sadly it's now all over for another year. But with the start of 2014, instead of feeling blue, January blues as they say, I have decided to see this new year as a positive new start. After all those January Blues are  just a frame of mind. So that's my resolution number 1 - always remain positive, focus forward and never look b ... Read More
