SPRING EDIT

15 Mar

and other stories
Snow's over and Spring is definitely on the horizon, judging by all the pretty little flowers popping up everywhere anyway. I am still wearing my duvet coat for the school run so Spring is definitely not quite in the air yet. However I am more than fed up with winter fashion and my attention is definitely now on what's trending for Spring Summer. I am totally over anything chunky, grey or black.

I love Spring, it's definitely the prettiest season. This is not only evident in all the spring blossoms, daffodils and tulips, pretty pinks. Forals and lavender are also being injected ... Read More

POM-POMS AND POPLIN

18 Aug

Apologies for my extreme lack of radio silence. The combination of school holiday's, summer in Italy and trying to keep on-top of running my own business, has resulted in me literally having no spare time to blog. However, I have been getting so many PR and collaboration requests recently, I though it best time I update things.

So what better place to start than with a bit of fashion inspiration? In-particular two of my current favourite trends - pom-pom flats and poplin. Extravagant and fun, the pom-pom flat had been trending for a whi ... Read More

BEST OF BRITISH

28 May

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. Things have been super-hectic. As a mum of two little ones, half-term, and running your own business, sometimes one thing or another has to go on the back burner. We have also been away for a few days over the bank holiday, relaxing it up with friends, back to nature, experiencing the best of British. There are so many beautiful places to explore in the UK and Cornwall is one of our favourites.

One bug-bear of mine when travelling within the UK however is what to pack? You never know if the weather will be kind, even in the Summer. Seein ... Read More

SUNSHINE

21 May

We were sure to make the most of this past weekends glorious sunshine. (Clearly a wise move as, surprise surprise, it didn't last.) BBQ's, family and friends were the perfect combination to those hot sunny days.

For laid back summer dressing 'mini-style' you can't beat a cute little romper. Baby Gap editions are my go-to right now for both the girls. Cute, comfy and casual A's lightweight denim version is a favourite, and I love anything in white for baby E.  So does she clearly, judging by that smile.

When it comes to my summer uniform right now, a basi ... Read More

AMELIA BRENNAN

The past week has seen some glorious weather which in turn has seen me reaching for A's more summery pieces. I find as the weather hots up dresses are our go-to. Even more so now with a new addition taking up alot of my time. Throwing on a dress is totally fuss free, and quick. This makes life easy when my darling daughter number 1 is being a little difficult, shall we say. Don't get me wrong A adores her new baby sister, but I have found her a little more demanding and needy. Her favourite line at the moment - 'mummy, I need you.' She also loves to play up w ...

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

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 ...

SS14. ON MY WISHLIST

6 Mar

What's on my wishlist this Spring Summer?

Although I am not a girly girl, this season I am finding myself drawn to some of those pastel pieces. A little bit of candy pink teamed with white or grey is not too girly, right? I am also in love with the sporty-shoe-sandal-thing. Not everyone's cup of tea, but there is something a little bit cool about a Slide. Step up Isabel Marant. Zara also have a couple of quirky styles, for those of you that are still un-decided and want something a little more throw-away.

An over-sized coat in cream is a must (Hello Ga ... Read More

MINI-SHOE LOVE

24 Feb

Peacock-print, French Blossom Boutique
It's coming to that time again, new shoes for A. I love shoes and love shopping for mini-shoes. Spring is in the air and Summer just around the corner, which means those wear-with-all winter boots will soon become redundant. Even though this makes me a little bit sad, knowing those favourites will never get worn again (they grow too fast), it is also super exciting shopping for those new additions.

Thankfully children's footwear has come a long way. Clarks?! This makes mini-shoe shopping a lot easier, but at the same time a lot harder. Being sensible you can't g ... Read More
