WINTER COATS

14 Oct

zara coat
Last winter I purchased my dream coat from Net A Porter. Grey, oversized, long-length and wool. I can't actually emphasis how long I was looking for this exact coat. It was quite expensive, even on sale, but you know when you just fall in love with something and have to have it no matter what? Well that happened. And it turns out it was actually quite the investment as I wore it literally every day. I am looking forward to doing the same this winter.

As a result I'm not really in the market for a new winter coat this year. I don't think I can ever beat the one I ... Read More

LUXURY GIFT IDEAS FOR MUM

25 Nov

Gift ideas
I have been thinking a lot about what I might like for Christmas. My husband asked me the other day and I must admit I wasn't really too sure. As a 'mum' there isn't really anything too specific that I fancy. Previously, and as Mumzynot started out as a proper mummy blog, I would have endless gift ideas all baby related. Now, the girls are getting bigger and all those mum-type gifts are no longer part of the equation. However, being a girl, not just a mum, there are a few things I wouldn't mind discovering under the tree come Christmas morning.

First on ... Read More

ZARA MATERNITY WEAR

15 Oct

Zara blouse
So I was just browsing Zara on-line for the girls (and for me) and noticed a new maternity section. About time Zara. Great news. It should be good.

Although very limited their maternity pieces don't disappoint. Out of the 11 items on offer (four are 'mum' jeans) I would happily pick any one to wear myself. The minimal and roomy feel is perfect, looking comfortable whilst retaining style. I would perhaps sum it up as a capsule collection for pregnancy. Day to night dress. check. Jeans. check. Blouse. check. My favourite piece is probably the faux leather dress, which I w ... Read More

TIMELESS BEAUTY WITH LOQUET LONDON

12 Oct

Loquet
One piece of jewellery that I have wanted for quite some time now is a necklace. I like the idea of something personal, and up until now a Monica Vinader engraved pendant was top of my list. Ever since having my daughters I have wanted some jewellery to represent their birth, our life and love. I have wanted a personalised necklace that I can wear everyday and never take off. Then I came across Loquet.

Loquet is still a relatively new name in the world of luxury jewellery. A British concept created by Sheherazade Goldsmith with Laura Bailey that launched in June ... 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

LUST-LIST

18 Aug

Suede shoe
We have just returned from another wonderful summer in Italy and instantaneously I am feeling the cold! It may still be August but judging by the current weather forecasts 'that great British summer' is long gone. So for now, sartorially, thoughts have turned to Autumn. I'm now thinking pieces that will see me through to winter.

Suede is top of my list for the new season. I fell in love with a suede trench at the beginning of summer which I wore to bits already. Sadly it's gone missing?? How can that happen - last seen in my car. I think about that coat always...Anyway, with sue ... Read More

NON-MATERNITY, MATERNITY

17 Mar

Non Maternity maternity
Whenever I am nearby a COS I have to pop in. It's one of my favourite stores for everyday, and right up my street when it comes to timeless and oversized silhouettes. That's their signature, which works perfectly for me. And co-incidentally it also works perfectly as non-maternity, maternity. I loved shopping their during pregnancy too. It was refreshing to know I wasn't changing my own signature just because of a bump, and I knew those 'maternity' pieces would remained season after season so it was guilt free.

Scandinavian, maybe one of the reasons why I love it so much? (There ... 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

DATE NIGHT

16 Feb

IO rosalin
For want of a better word, the perfect look for that dinner-date with the man. Forget the LBD, hello, the jumpsuit.

Elegant and stylish with minimal effort, a black all-in-one should be every girls go-to. Team with point-toe pumps (Jimmy Choos's Anouk in patent leather work best), statement jewels and a Valentino rockstud bag for extra-added signature flair. Right now I am coveting a more laid back design from Michael Korrs. Said suit would be just as fabulous for a paired down look by day. Just add those favourite white sneakers, Sophie Hulme cross-body and Larsson and Jennings ... Read More

VALENTINE, OR VALENTINO?

9 Feb

Valentino
What's on your wishlist this February 14th? Of course, every day should be Valentines day, but it's always nice to have an excuse for presents, no?

For me there is nothing more un-romantic than a Valentines date-night. Tables of two, set menu's and prosecco are not top of my list.  But I will never say no to gifts. A thoughtful present topped off with yummy food, fireside snuggles and a delicious bottle of red. Now that's true love. (Kids in bed, on time, and sleeping through permitting...)

Alternatively, who needs a Valentine, Valentino will do!
