SS14. ON MY WISHLIST

6 Mar

IO-jacket
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

LATTE MAMA AND OUR LITTLE LULLABY

5 Mar

Our little lullaby
If you love cool and quirky designs for your little one, Latte Mama is your one-stop shop. Featuring some of the most divine brands, from Mini Rodini to Little Four Clothing, and most recently (and most excitingly for me) Our Little Lullaby. Think gorillas, dragonflys, bulls and retro patterns, all printed onto 100% organic, soft and luxurious cotton leggings.

The Latte Mama motto - Don't let your mama cramp you style. I couldn't agree more. Hurry whilse stocks last, I have a feeling this brand is going to fly.

Love Jess x

PHOEBE COLEMAN

14 Feb

Phoebe coleman bird
I always used to be a chunky-jewels kinda girl but for some reason or another my style has changed and I find myself more and more drawn to those delicate, simplistic pieces. Alex Monroe and Monica Vinader are my go-to designers of choice, but more recently I have fallen in love with newcomer Phoebe Coleman. The Notting Hill based designer offers something slightly unique and totally chic. I would happily make room in my jewelry box for a number of her pieces.  Those pretty little rings especially are totally wearable.

It's a bit late for Valentine's Day but my 30th i ... Read More

ALL BLACK

13 Feb

All-black-Gwen
Once again Gwen Stafani steals the crown in the maternity style steaks. (Well mine anyway.) Dressed in a chic all black ensemble, and some killer heels, there are no signs the heavily pregnant star is intending to let her fashion credentials slip. I do wonder though if behind doors she too lives in leggings and flats?

Leggings aside, a pair of leather pants have fast become a maternity wardrobe staple, and thankfully several maternity labels have taken note. Isabella Oliver do the perfect pair. Wear-with-all day and night they will last throughout your pregnancy and be ... Read More

UNIQUE SS14 HAS LANDED

11 Feb

Topshop-uniquw-3
Yipee (!) The Topshop unique SS14 collection has finally landed and once again it does not disappoint. Unique's slouchy, over-sized designs that we all know and love are in abundance - re-worked into barely-there sundresses, chic prints and that beautiful blue. The tweed fringed shorts and jacket, with a subtle nod to Chanel, is just divine . I basically want it all.

This is a collection that is not only stylish but totally baby-bump friendly. Great for hiding a multitude of sins post birth. (minus those crop-tops.) Investment pieces at your fingertips, that will not on ... Read More

PAPA VALENTINE

7 Feb

Assouline
As well as receiving a nice gift myself this Valentines, it's important to remember that you can also give something nice to your love in return. In all honesty my husband and I never really buy into Valentines gifting, but maybe this year we will both spoil each other a little..

This is what I am thinking for him - You can't go wrong with a divine smelling cologne, and it's always better to choose yourself. Don't you just hate it when they wear that aftershave you can't stand?! I adore Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza so sexy. A great hair product will always go ... Read More

GWEN STAFANI

31 Jan

Gwen-stafani
She is probably my favourite style-wise at the moment, Gwen Stafani always look so cool and she does not let that bump get in her way.

I love everything about this latest look, it's just my kinda thing. (Minus those killer heels, my pelvis no longer allows for a stiletto.) I am now on the hunt for a pair of chic print (maternity) trousers, how fabulous.

Get the look:

Blue felt fedora Topshop, Draped cashmere waterfall cardigan Blossom, Snake print trousers with elasticated waist Selected Shaka, Print maternity trousers Isabella ... Read More

MY WEEK (CHRISTMAS WEEK)

27 Dec

PhotoGrid_1388177225714
Happy Christmas! This last week has been manic. On top of various events and Christmas parties we have been super busy preparing the house for Christmas day. (Builders were out on the 21st and carpets went down just a few days before. So in a word, hectic!)

This year we hosted, with both families! It was a lovely day and so nice to be able to celebrate all together at home, but I must admit I didn't relax as much as I usually would. I really don't know how anyone can host Christmas on their own?! I am so lucky to have a 'chef' husband, 'sous chef' brother-in-la ... Read More

TOO GOOD TO BE MISSED

20 Dec

Chanel-Vintage
I know it's Christmas and a time for giving, but the Matches sale is just too good to be missed. With up to 50% off some of the most coveted style items, it really is hard not to get carried away. Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, Gianvito Rossi pumps, Sharouk jewels, Chanel bags and too many fabulous clothes to mention specifics, I could happily re-stock my entire wardrobe. Luckily I am a little more disciplined than you might think and will just stick to the classic must-haves. Would I buy it full price? Or those pieces I have been lusting after since they first hit stores (Isa ... Read More

COVER-UP

13 Dec

joseph
With Winter comes the need for added layers. Chunky knits and woolly tights are all well and good but no matter the amount of fabric, a cover-up is still essential. One of my favourite things to shop for this season is a chic new coat. Just like shoes and bags, you can never have too many. A coat is one item of clothing I have found (with pregnancy number one and again this time around) that does not need to be maternity specific. A baby-bump doesn't really get in the way of the latest outerwear styles. Currently I am loving all things over-sized, as you already know, and the fur ted ... Read More
