THE WINTER CAPE MAKES A COMBACK

7 Oct

Joseph
Pretty much every winter the cape makes a comeback. I have several styles in my wardrobe that I can't wait to bring out from hibernation as soon as the weather takes a turn. I have in-fact got a gorgeous tartan cape that I got when I was still at university. This just goes to show the capes longevity.

As with most things sartorially, even if you do have something similar on rotation, there's always the need for an update. Especially when you know it will be well worth the investment. I would like to add here too, that the cape is the perfect cosy, yet cool, cover-up in pregnancy ... Read More

BURGUNDY PIECES

17 Sep

Burgundy
According to the fashion guides Burgundy is the colour of the season. And that's fine by me. I've never been a huge fan of red. It's a difficult hue to master stylishly especially if you are blonde. And even then i'm not a fan on me. I honestly don't think I have one piece in my wardrobe that's red. However, burgundy I am all over. Classic, stylish, yet remaining sultry.  A cashmere sweater, bag or burgundy skirt has gone straight to the top of my list of new season updates. Preferably in cord or velvet.

What I love even more is that this trend has filtered down into c ... Read More

SWIMWEAR

20 Jul

Anthro
Who knew? Anthropologie I have just discovered have perhaps the most amazing collection of swimwear. Ever. And just in time for the summer holidays which is even more exciting.

Aside from shoes and bags, I think swimwear is one of my favourite thing to shop for. I'm always on the look out for new additions. You can't really ever have enough costumes right? (It's also almost nearly pregnancy-proof when it comes to what you can and cannot wear. At least the first couple of trimesters anyway.)  So what's so great about Anthropologies collection? High-waists, structured tops and b ... Read More

CLEARANCE

16 Jul

clearance
It's important to remember when shopping the sales - even those amazing bargain clearance items - would I want it full price? If the answer is no then look away.

To avoid being fooled by a discount I like to keep things simple. Searching out classic and timeless pieces means you won't go wrong. Stick to what you know (and wear) best. Denim, cami-basics and a great pair of flats are always a great place to start. I also like to search beachwear and bags. We always head off for some kind of winter sun and finding new holiday pieces in the Winter is near-all impossible. Amongst all ... Read More

FINERY LONDON

8 Jun

Finery dress
Perhaps not one for those expecting, but worth a bookmark for post-baby treats. A new discovery of mine - Finery London.

As quoted by Vogue: 'Chic, shockingly affordable and very well designed' FineryLondon.com is my kinda online boutique. With a hint of Scandinavian styling, bold prints and masculine silhouettes, there are more than a few looks I wouldn't mind being updated with right now. Favourites include a modern tie-waist jumpsuit and Ivory organza dress, which I think has a real Victoria Beckham vibe. (Maybe not worn with those shoes however. A Saint Laurent Jane would be ...

UPDATES

Even though I am no longer pregnant, I still like to keep on top of the latest maternity collections. Mumzynot is an on line destination for stylish mums and mums-to-be - so it's important to keep the latter readership happy too, right? As well, I am actually a little bit obsessed with maternity fashion. Perhaps even more so than the regular kind. Since the blog started four years ago the world of maternity has come a long way. It actually makes me miss a bump...

So, updates. I am currently obsessed with denim dungarees and ASOS maternity have a cute vintage-wash style. ... Read More

THE DUNGAREES

16 Apr

Lily aldridge
An age old favourite, the maternity dungarees. I love a denim dungarees pregnant or not. It's a chic, laid back-look. An easy-alternative to the double-denim vibe, requiring minimum effort when it comes to getting dressed. Simply pair with a plain cotton T or vest.

Spotted on many a pregnant celebrity, or stylish mum  (being a mum is not a requirement here either please note), this latest image of model Lily Aldridge got me inspired. Re-kindling my love of the denim dungarees. Her specific flared style is by Stella MaCartney, so maybe not an option for the majority of us, but t ... Read More

SHOE UPDATE

31 Mar

Eytys look
Being a mum of two small children, my shoe wardrobe has become pretty much over-run with flats. No matter how much I love a heel, the flat always seems to win. I just can't be bothered tottering around in heels with little ones in tow. Time is of the essence as it is.

Luckily there are a wealth of beautiful flat options out there, and actually the flat is just as much high fashion as any stiletto. My pair of Valentino rock studs is case in point.  The current go-to for everyday however is a more basic shoe, a little less high-fashion but just as charming in its own way. Specifi ... Read More

THE WHITE SHIRT

29 Mar

White shirt style
There is something about the perfect white shirt. Men, woman (maternity) and even little ones.  It's just a timeless piece however you choose to wear it. For such an effortless piece then, why is it so hard to find the perfect one?

For me that perfect one needs to be structured yet retain the softness you only get from the best quality cotton. It can't be too sheer, or crease at the slightest fold. It also needs to be some kind of boyfriend fit. The same rules apply when shopping for my husband or the girls. (An added criteria for the girls is a ruffle or peter-pan collar.) Wit ... Read More

FERNE COTTON

25 Mar

Ferne cotton
I am a big fan of chunky knits as you know. And it looks like newly pregnant Ferne Cotton might be too. I must admit I'm not totally sure on this specific chunky-knit combination of hers however. For me purple and velvet is a little too 80's, plus the fact purple is my least favourite hue. When it comes to adding colour or texture I would always rather stick to my accessories. But, as a look I like it. I would just opt for denim on cream or grey.

Laid-back, oversized style is the perfect move if you are pregnant and feeling a little fat over blooming. I also love this kinda thin ... Read More
