I love a bit of colour clashing and a print clash come to that (but more of that another time)-quirky, a little bit eccentric but style with edge.
If you guys follow my style blog mummysgotstyle.com too, you'll know I'm a bit bit obsessed with fashion and how empowering and transformative clothes can be-and now the weather is turning, it's time to add another coat to the collection.
Those who follow this blog know what a jewel loving magpie I am, only fuelled by Pinterest (damn you Pinterest eating away my hard earned cash) but what a hub of sparkly inspiration (I even had my engagement ring upgraded and re-set thanks to the art deco rings I spied there)...but I digress, watches too have a special place in my sometimes materialistic heart!
Over on my style blog Mummy's Got Style, it's #Fashionfriday, a linky for all you fashionistas where you can add style posts of you and your kids or fashion wish-lists. All style related posts are welcome- new, archived and as many posts as you like! Everybody's welcome too of course!
The fabulous folks at Yellow Mellon sent my sons some beautiful summery pieces for review so we hit the park with the very talented Kirsty Mattsson of Kirsty Mattsson Photography for a shoot in the sunshine!
The summer is all about pretty, bright prints for me and nothing says that better than florals.
I love a bit of monochrome and this summer Aztec style print dress in black and white from Dorothy Perkins simply makes me smile. It's comfortable enough to run around little people in but doesn't compromise on style!
I am a seriously lucky lady as recently Luxe-Layers gifted me this beautiful designer dress by Brazilian designer Lucidez which I review in full over on my style blog Mummy's Got Style: HERE.
With the World Cup, we are all currently and right so- Brazil-crazy but let me tell you I've always been a fan of Brazilian fashion (food and film) and scored a goal of my own (sorry) when stunning Luxe-Layers, a beautiful boutique and online shop from my old neighbourhood Barnes in London contacted me to gift me this captivating dress by Rio based designer Lucidez. I'm in love....
On the 2nd of July, I had a wonderfully girly day with my glam Mummy (another Mummy with style) in London as we attended the Jacques Vert press day at the very swanky No. 5 Cavendish Square.
I've recently become addicted to yoga, a healthy addiction naturally but an addiction all the same, I feel like yoga is a secret everyone should know, I want to scream, "Do yoga it will change your life" from the roof tops people-a bit like when Cameron Diaz informed me to drink more water in her cute but slightly patronising and highly repetitive 'The Body Book' yoga and drinking water equals happiness (pretty much).
It's nearly that time again: the British summer time (yay) and with this edit, I'm willing on the sunshine as I type so I can get my Cutler and Gross shades on quick!
I've tried to write this post a couple of times before now but in all honesty I've only just about recovered from what can only be described as an absolutely epic time at the Cannes Film Festival, 5 days on from returning home on Saturday... One of the most famous film festivals in the world, this is the third time I've had the pleasure of attending this iconic celebration of film and it did not disappoint, let me tell you.
Ever the fashionista, I love trawling online and discovering style sites I've never seen before, that can feed my obsession with all thing chic, and this week the jaw-droppingly beautiful Motilo was brought to my attention.
