Welcome to the second instalment of this series, documenting What Mark Wore over the last month or so (obviously this is only a small selection as this kid goes through a lot of clothes!), with a more autumnal collection of clothes. Mark is starting to look and act like a proper little dude and I wanted his wardrobe to reflect this new found character with some more structure pieces and less basic babygrows, plus moving away from the traditional boy blue. Built around a base of soft joggers and vests with cute character tees, knitwear and little shoes, his wardrobe is cute but practical for him now he is becoming more active. Still working around a navy, black and grey base with some bolder pops of tan, mustard, teal and red along with some great prints.

My current favourite pieces in his wardrobe are the "happy little one" raccoon tee and the robots sweatshirt & joggers set, which works well together or as separates.

Sainsbury's long sleeve Raccoon tee & shearling lined lumberjack jacket, Primark White vest, Next black joggers, Wish tasseled moccasins 

Primark Striped vest, Next black joggers, Sainsbury's dinosaur hoodie, George star bib

F&F Woodland characters vest, Primark chunky grandad cardigan, M&S navy joggers, Amazon fox grey hightop sneakers

H&M striped sweatshirt, M&S navy joggers, Sainsbury's soft dog shoes & grey star bib, Primark white vest

Sainsbury's Red cat joggers & grey star bib, Primark star vest & chunky grey grandad cardigan

H&M Robot sweatshirt & jogger set, Sainsbury's grey quilted booties

As usual have linked to what I can, but a lot of these items were gifts months ago so are no longer available.....
Have you seen any cute baby pieces you think Mark might like?

AW17 Primark Homeware

As a Primark girl through and through, i have been a big fan of the homeware section for a few years now and am so impressed how it has evolved from a few knickknacks to beautiful collections that i believe rival some of the big homeware stores. The latest arrivals have my name written all over them - marble, blush pink, rose gold and lets not forget the Christmas collection - so many baubles that i need for my tree. So far this year i have already bought some great pieces - cushions, fairy lights, multiple candles in various scents, storage baskets, bedding and my absolute favourite item - a rose gold elephant doorstop, an unexpected find!

Here are some of the pieces i have seen recently in store that i am loving 

AW17 Primark Homeware: My favourite Pieces

Grey woven basket £8, Blush pink faux fur cushion £9, Marble/Rose Gold jewellery stand £5
Disney Chip Cup £5, Grey/rose gold geometric print cushion £7
Candles - #4 Sea Salt & Lavender & #9 Wild Orchid & Honey 80p each
Artificial succulent plant £4, Rose Gold large metal basket £5 (small also available £3)
Lama photo holder £2, Grey & Marble wicker basket 2pk set £8

Sadly as the Primark website is not transactional i can't link but it is a great excuse to pop into your local store and see what you can pick up, especially as all my picks are under £10!

Would love to know what pieces you have picked up recently....

The five style essentials every woman should have this Autumn

Every year trends come and go, but more and more i am opting for my favourites and classic staples, worrying less about being "on-trend". These items are simply just updated styling wise each season (there is always a new shape or way to wear). Just in case you need some inspiration on how to style up these essentials, check out a few of my favourite autumn outfits below... and to see these and many more head over to my Street Style: Autumn Pinterest board.

So the five style essentials i think every woman should have in her wardrobe this Autumn are:

1. Statement Knitwear

A cold weather staple that covers a wide variety of styles - whether you prefer a jumper or a cardigan, a thin lightweight or a super chunky knit, make sure you opt for something sumptuous and snuggly, perfect to add that cosy layer to your autumnal look. Statement knitwear can be plain with just a great knit to it but added embellishments and detailing such as colour blocking, lace, jewels or intricate patterns are great too. Such a versatile piece, worn with jeans, trousers, skirts or layered over a cute dress - cosy but chic. I particularly love styles that have unexpected elements - ribbon lacing up the sides, tie cuffs, zips or supersized bell sleeves.



2. A Great Hat

Fedora, beanie, bobble, beret - the list is endless but a great hat can elevate a simple outfit and make you look chic an put together. I have built up a great collection of styles, over the last few years - grey, black & burgundy fedoras along with an old grey double pompom beanie from Topshop and this years addition is a cute pink bobble hat from New Look. Find a style that works for your face shape / hairstyle, throw it on and off you go. I love to add a hat if i am wearing a really casual outfit just to jazz it up, plus they are great at covering a bad hair day!



The five style essentials every woman should have this Autumn - Street Style Inspiration #1

3. Beautiful Scarves

A standard accessory for the colder months, that i am 99% sure every woman owns but scarves have become so much more of an accessory in the last few years - a great way to add colour as well as warmth as well as being an inexpensive piece you can update every year. Whether you opt for a lightweight knit, full on blanket style or a festive faux fur, choose something that will work well with your wardrobe as you will be wearing it every day. I love to wear a head to toe black outfit and add a pop of colour with a beautiful scarf. Scarves are like shoes, you can never have enough.


4. The Trusty Ankle Boot

A fashionistas essential Autumn footwear, keeping feet warm, dry yet stylish . Another piece that comes in so many shapes, styles, heel heights etc that the perfect pair exist for everyone. Personally i have a few styles that i always come back to - a great pair of comfortable block heels, usually with something statement about them, to team with tights & dresses along with a flatter, simpler pair to wear with jeans. Currently wearing a pair of black western buckle boots, they work so well with my mum wardrobe of jeans and knitwear. 



5. A Biker Jacket

A relatively new essential from me, a great third layer piece that helps to cinch in some of that chunky knitwear. Opt for classic black leather or go bold, adding a pop of autumnal colour in suede - mustard, tan, blush pink or soft grey are some of my favourites. I picked up a gorgeous blush pink one from Primark in the summer, which i have loved wearing thrown over a chunky pink & grey knit and jeans on those days when i don't need a thick winter coat.

My November 2017 Wishlist

November Wishlist: All about Autumn

So it's that time again, when the leaves turn, the temperature starts to drop and we start to think of all things snuggly. 
My November 2017 Wishlist
Style Spotlight: Inthefrow

Finding her well heeled niche in the high-end & designer spectrum of fashion, blogger and Youtuber Victoria Magrath aka Inthefrow, has become one of my everyday fashion idols. An aspirational fashionista, giving her readers a glimpse into the stylish world of designer brands such as Dior, Chanel & Burberry as well as the more affordable highstreet favourites Reiss and Ted Baker, to name a few. Her style and hair colour have evolved so much in the last few years, and I have enjoyed following this journey as well as discovering a plethora of new brands along the way.

I would class Victoria's style as classic, structured with a strong focus on quality and beautiful accessories - this girl owns more boots than the shoe hall of Selfridges!

Style Spotlight: Inthefrow, classic pieces

A true believer in classic staples mixed with statement pieces, Victoria regularly incorporates items such as skinny jeans, leather trousers and her self professed favourite, the polo neck into her outfits. Then layers on her seasonal newness and wow factor through luxurious outerwear, statement footwear and an array of beautiful designer handbags. I particularly love the lace midi skirt outfit above - a beautiful mix of feminine lace, a basic polo neck layered with an unusual knitted vest and a bold pop of red, beautiful for this time of year.

Style Spotlight: Inthefrow, beautiful pairings

All the autumnal shades in this group of outfits - loving the rich palette and transitional looks. The amazing Temperley midi dress, Anya Hindmarch bag and bare leg combination from London fashion week is a look I am so inspired by, the print of the dress is just gorgeous - I will be trying my best to recreate with high street pieces. Each of these looks is relatively simple - a lightweight knit and mini skirt teamed with ankle boots but with the mix of brands, colours and textures making them all individual and special. Victoria has a keen eye for unexpected pairings and colour combinations.

Style Spotlight: Inthefrow, fashion chameleon

Victoria is a fashion chameleon - switching up her style regularly. Able to switch effortlessly between ladylike chic and channelling her inner boho goddess in a printed maxi dress. To mixing it up with a very casual jeans and a lace tee combo or styling a classic LBD with a denim jacket and ankle boots - a Victoria staple item. This ability to flit between style tribes and influences creates a truly varied and unique outlook on fashion and personal style #stylegoals.

Style Spotlight: Inthefrow, all the glamour

Finally this girl loves a touch of Hollywood glamour - above are just a few of the AMAZING gowns Victoria has doned in the name of fashion recently. Working the princess look in statement red along with a more gothic, sexy take on glamour in these two amazing Dior dresses - very bold and takes a lot of confidence to pull off a see through dress (with your underwear fully on display) which she does with ease!

Inthefrow.com celebrated its 5th birthday during October, so it felt only fitting to feature Victoria in the style spotlight. I am looking forward to seeing what the next five years holds for this lady and her amazing wardrobe......and just putting it out there, can you imagine what maternity "inthefrow" style will look like!!

If you haven't had chance to check out the gorgeous stylings of Inthefrow, make sure to bookmark the blog and follow on Youtube & Instagram.

Monthly Favourites #6

My monthly series, sharing the food, places, fashion, beauty and entertainment that I'm currently enjoying...
and now including some #babysheath favourites too.

Next Pompom shoes & The Ordinary hyaluronic acid serum

1. My favourite pair of shoes of this summer have been these gorgeous pompom mules from Next. A birthday gift to myself back in April and a bargain at £32, especially considering all the detailing on the shoes. They are really cute, on trend plus are super comfy and were a godsend for swollen pregnant feet and have proven invaluable over the last few months as they are so easy to slip-on whilst holding the baby. Teamed here with skinny jeans, a delicate lace top and burgundy slouchy bag for a family shopping trip (how amazing are these floor tiles...shoefie had to be done).

2. Since i got pregnant my skin has been awful, dry and really prone to spots, and while i had hoped once i'd had a baby it would clear up but alas no luck. This Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 from The Ordinary has been a skin saver, becoming a firm favourite in my daily routine and has helped so much - my skin is now clearer, softer, moisturised and glowing. I bought this bottle from ASOS, where i first found the brand but it is also now available on Feelunique. Need to go back and check out the rest of the range, particularly interested in the new foundations.


Current jewellery loves & Anya Hindmarch pouch

3. Getting back into jewellery this month - enjoying a mix of new along with some old favourites. Normally a fan of bold, statement jewellery but i have had to switch to more delicate baby friendly pieces (little hand grab everything) and am currently loving mixing metals - rose gold, silver and a splash of pearl. Current everyday combination is the rose gold "a" necklace and ear cuff, along with simple star studs, adding in some fun with the tassels and double pearl earrings when i want to mix it up. *Cactus jewellery holder from the new Zoella lifestyle range.

4. A cheeky little purchase from our trip to Bicester Village - an Anya Hindmarch rainbow pouch. Wanted to treat myself to a little designer piece and this was the perfect option. Currently using to store all my daily essentials (lipbalm, hand santitiser, etc) inside Mark's changing bag. 

Planoly app & Primark Elephant doorstop

 5. Planoly app - discovered this a couple of weeks ago and don't know how i survived without it. Perfect to help plan out future Instagram posts and style my grid, moving images around to make the most out of the theme i am using at the time. Only thing to note is that you only get 30 uploads a month on the free plan and have limited access on analytics but if you are an avid Instagrammer there are other plans available - however for me the free one works.
Available on iTunes & Googleplay.

6. My amazing rose gold elephant doorstop, is one of the most bizarre things i have ever purchased from Primark and i love it! A homeware bargain at only £8 and although i am not using it as a doorstop, it looks amazing on a shelf in my lounge - random but makes me happy (but does freak the cat out a little).

Hart of Dixie & Mum wardrobe

7. My maternity leave entertainment. I have been working through four seasons of Hart of Dixie, whilst chilling out with my little man...perfect easy watching. Any recommendations what i should go for next?

8. Rocking my new mum uniform - skinny jeans, cute t-shirts, lightweight knits and flats, plus the essential pair of sunglasses to hide the eye bags! These new additions to my wardrobe are all easy mix & match pieces that look chic but are comfortable and practical for looking after a baby - add a bag and i am good to go.
New Look ripped black skinny jeans, H&M stripe tee, New Look "Funday" jumper and Primark gold flats.

TU Baby clothes & Jellycat soft toys

  9. I never thought i would get so excited about baby boy clothes, but at the moment i love nothing more than finding new little pieces for Mark's wardrobe - these are just two of my latest finds, both from Tu@Sainsburys. Colourful and fun as well as good quality and so soft - plus Mark looks adorable in them. Expensive lark this maintaining a baby wardrobe!

10. I have a new found love for Jellycat soft toys - Mark now has four (and i also have a little unicorn) and they are my favourites out of all his furry friends. James and i bought the bashful beige bunny after our 12 week scan as a little present. The very fluffy Cyril the Sloth was a gift from my sister whilst the little vibrating pram fox and Dennis the dinosaur were a treat when he was about a month old - i couldn't resist....so cute, especially Dennis. Any of these would make a great new baby gift, if you know anyone who is pregnant.

What have you been loving this month? Any recommendations?

8. Rocking my new mum uniform - skinny jeans, cute t-shirts, lightweight knits and flats, plus the essential pair of sunglasses to hide the eye bags! These new additions to my wardrobe are all easy mix & match pieces that look chic but are comfortable and practical for looking after a baby - add a bag and i am good to go.
New Look ripped black skinny jeans, H&M stripe tee, New Look "Funday" jumper and Primark gold flats.

TU Baby clothes & Jellycat soft toys

  9. I never thought i would get so excited about baby boy clothes, but at the moment i love nothing more than finding new little pieces for Mark's wardrobe - these are just two of my latest finds, both from Tu@Sainsburys. Colourful and fun as well as good quality and so soft - plus Mark looks adorable in them. Expensive lark this maintaining a baby wardrobe!

10. I have a new found love for Jellycat soft toys - Mark now has four (and i also have a little unicorn) and they are my favourites out of all his furry friends. James and i bought the bashful beige bunny after our 12 week scan as a little present. The very fluffy Cyril the Sloth was a gift from my sister whilst the little vibrating pram fox and Dennis the dinosaur were a treat when he was about a month old - i couldn't resist....so cute, especially Dennis. Any of these would make a great new baby gift, if you know anyone who is pregnant.

What have you been loving this month? Any recommendations?
