Hot mum…

My lovely Helen, a friend I’ve had the pleasure to know since grade school, reached out to me to help her with inspiration.

She’s a mum to  qute little Lukas, and wanted something comfortable and fun to wear during her days doing what mums do, which is a lot of things!

I wanted to put together something that’s not going to take too much time but still look “put together”. Normally I always say accessories are a priority but this is something that obviously needs to be taken great care with so that the toddler doesn’t get hurt. But if a necklace is a possibility I’d definitely add one if only for that coffee out on the town.

Shoes I tried to think not too high for comfort and balance but still qute and feminine. 

Helen loves a pop of colour so this I really had to get into the mix, she needed a little bit of print, this is where she can play with scarves or add a printed top instead of the bright fuschia or red.

Trousers are tricky but a good fabric with stretch and a higher waist can still keep them comfortable. I know my Helen and I think she’s a dress girl like me though 😉

With that said anything with an empire cut or a-line will look great on her, and to not feel to exposed a nice chunky cardigan is perfect. If it has a tie waist it also helps to give that hourglass shape emphasised.

I am not a mum myself so I obviously don’t know exactly how tough, exhausting but amazing it can be, but I recommend trying to enjoy your style when you can. Add that colour or that print. It can make you feel a little uplifted and give you a good boost .

Helen is great with make-up and nails, beauty in general so I think these outfits will complement her look beautifully.

I hope you liked them my lovely! x

Kate spade LBD…

You can rarely go wrong with a LBD, I chose this fun one because of its great for but also fun details.

It has a thicker fabric that really helps hold in those trouble areas and a great comfortable length.

Currently in store at Kate Spade.

Ichi, Åhléns…

Found this beautiful lace decorated top at one of my shopping hotspots here in Umeå, Sweden.

£35 from Ichi, Åhléns.

Perfect top to dress up a pair of denims or add to a nice skirt creating an LBD effect.

Bohemian Chic…

I saw this dress and just had to have it! It’s gorgeous silk unlined making it perfect for any season. 

For winter I have opted for a pair of lace ups from Chie Mihara but might also pair the dress with a pair of mahogany coloured knee boots.

If you like faux fur then adding a fur gilet will definitely elevate the look, but a simple wool coat will look great too.

Fashioning a reign…

Had the pleasure to go and see the “Fashioning a Reign” exhibition at Buckingham Palace, showcasing all the amazing outfits worn by Queen Elizabeth through the years.

She had an amazing sense of style and very groundbreaking as well.

Very devoted to British designers and very kind to other nations in the way she always had their emblems or national flowers decorated on the dress she would wear when visiting.

And on top of the amazing fashion I got the tour of the many different rooms of the palace, stunning interior and artwork though out.
