FROZEN-ESQUE PARTY

15 Jul

photo (10)
Whilst planning my daughter's fourth birthday party last month I stumbled across the sweetest personalised cake topper's via Instagram. Clara Ivy (claryivy.bigcartel.com) hand-makes any word, number or phrase in a choice of finishes to suit your theme. I feel in love, instantly.

The theme for our party was (of course) Frozen but I didn't want the more obvious style frozen cake - I wan't something a little more sophisticated and also a little different. I followed the ombre style of this sweet pink cake, swapping to frozen colours and a matching rainbow filling.  The glitter sil ... Read More

ON A BUDGET

1 Mar

Sample sale - invitation
A few weeks back I was contacted by a producer of the BBC to see if I would be interested in taking part in a discussion on the 'art of maternity dressing' for radio 4's Woman's hour. This was an exciting email to be receiving, given there are many maternity and style blogs out there. Happily I accepted the offer. So stay tuned for that people....

Back to the point, and leading on from this quite appropriately - One of the questions the producer asked me during some telephone prep was whether there were any sites or sales for second hand maternity pieces, or maternity wear for t ... Read More

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,

DOUTZEN KROES

8 May

Doutzen
She is a Victoria Secrets model, so granted most of us won't/don't look like this whilst pregnant. But a chic long black dress a la Doutzen Kroes is for me the most perfect, elegant, maternity look - Evening glamour in one easy-to-wear step.

I would also consider this look for a wedding or summer party. Black is not the most traditional hue for such an occasion but it's just so flattering and elegant over a bump, and well, why not?

 



Favourite designer maternity label Madderson London have basically this exact dress, with added ... Read More

MADDERSON LONDON. NEW IN

14 Mar

Amelie
I will keep this short and sweet. Sometimes not too many words are required and it's best to just see for yourself.

Madderson London have recently launched their new Spring Summer maternity collection and as expected it's divine. Luxury, chic and ever-stylish, you will find nothing average about these new season looks. Old favourites are re-worked in summer hues (The Amelie in powder blue and gold French Tweed really stands out) as-well as some new editions that I just love. Hello Serena in Olive.

Basically it's one not to be missed. And please note, ... Read More

ONE WEEK TO GO

11 Mar

IMG_20140308_172722
With just one week to go, and a day of shooting children's fashion ahead, I opted for the Saturday dress. Madderson London's go-to, weekend-style-staple. And how exciting to be able to show off a little bit of leg, thanks to the cheeky slit detail of this maternity maxi.

Who say's you can't remain stylish right up until the end? A pair of faithful sneakers and oversized cardigan finish the look. I love this long-line style from COS, who offer some great 'non-maternity' maternity pieces btw. And I'm always pulling on those Peter Pilloto print flats right now. (You might have noti ...

DATE NIGHT

19 Feb

IMG_20140218_182910
Valentines day when you are 36 weeks pregnant is not as exciting/glamorous as it perhaps should be. But I was not going to let any bump get in my way, and my husband and I still managed a little date-night. (Probably one of our last before the new arrival.) Nothing too spectacular, and not far from home - It was a candlelit dinner followed by the cinema. I was most excited about the cinema. I cannot remember the last time we went, literally. I think it was James Bond. The Wolf of Wall Street was fantastic BTW.

For date-night then, the perfect look (in my eyes) thanks to ... Read More

MADDERSON LONDON LAUNCH WOMENSWEAR

6 Feb

Madderson-Lond-on
I'm going to keep this brief, I'm still feeling horrendous thanks to this bug that's going around. But I just wanted to post about the recent Madderson London press launch, which I have been meaning to do all week.

At the end of Jan I attended Madderson's Beaufort House party, where their stunning début womenswear collection was revealed. The likes of Grazia, Tatler and Hello magazine were in attendance, as well as some very influential stylists, models and celebrities. (Tamara Beckwith, Martha Ward, Tilly Boone, June Sarpong and Lisa Butcher, to name just a few.) As e ... Read More

STATEMENT PRINT

23 Jan

IMG_20140119_184937
A perfect combination of statement and style. Madderson London's Darcy Dress, my new favorite piece from the current collection.

I am not usually one to go for a print, not really sure why, I just always seems to pick something in a block colour. After slipping on the ML Darcy shift however, I think I have been converted. There is just something about this elegant combination of black and beige that works. Even with an expanding (32 week) baby bump, that initial fear of a print adding pounds and looking frumpy was sent right to the back of my mind.  I am not sure how, ... 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
