#MYWEEKIN – J.BRAND

JBrand.6

J.Brand’s purest cashmere and finest supple leather for a day tied to my computer planning two June events. When wearing a look I feel confident in, even when no others can see the pieces, it sets the tone for my day; it’s all a matter of confidence (I am quite sure wearing sweats would feel wonderful, but equally sure this is not going to be happening anytime soon!)

#MYWEEKIN – J.BRAND

Wearing head-to-toe J.Brand and cutting an exhausted figure after a long (long!) day

 

A fitting for an event this week, a lunch with the delightful designer behind the striking brand L’objet at the Dorchester Hotel, consultancy meeting and then a stop to view the dreamy Astley Clarke collections…quite a day

 

With a day like today, J.Brand’s super soft stretch denim, teamed with the most comfortable T-shirt and supple leather jacket were the perfect pieces to see me through four events in one day without leaving me wishing I could be in something less restrictive…

#MyWeekIN – J.BRAND

 

JBrand1

With a week ahead wearing one of my treasured labels each day for five days, how could I not have chosen to feature this incredible (incredible!) cropped black leather jacket and short shorts on day one?! I’m quite unsure of the reaction I shall receive due to the weather not being summer exactly, but my legs just couldn’t wait another day to don these perfect pinks…

MINI-A-TURE FOR WET WEEKENDS

Astor.MiniATure

Easter in the UK generally equates to a rather wet affair, given the weather, but it also equates to lots of fun for certain small people dressed in their new wellingtons and handsome new Mini-A-Ture raincoat!

 

I am quite unsure who was more excited about the fabulous little raincoat, although it was likely to be me as Astor just appreciated the fact that we were out walking in the torrential rain and he wasn’t under a raincover in his stroller being protected from the downpour this time!

 

Thanks to the clever and beautifully designed waterproof that ensured not a drop of rain reached Astor’s clothing underneath, I could hold my umbrella firm and have this gorgeous little person happily jumping in every puddle he could find without concern…

WedFlowers

 

There was never a question of who I wanted to design our wedding flowers… Nikki Tibbles, the genius behind the most sought after florist, Wild At Heart, had been a dream of mine for everything floral for our wedding

 

I managed to book Nikki just as her spring schedule was almost full and from start to finish, I loved every moment of working with her personally and her professional, lovely team

THE SECOND OF MY HEAVENLY GIAMBATTISTA VALLI COUTURE DRESSES

PV.Nils.Pre-Party

Being with my husband ahead of the wedding party was my favourite part of the evening; of course the party itself was incredible (images to follow soon, my blog posts will be sporadic while I enjoy newly married life right now), but getting ready with him was the sweetest, most enjoyable part of the night as we had been married only a day and were on the most magnificent wedding high…

 

This is the second Giambattista Valli couture dress that I wore for my two-day wedding celebrations and as much as I loved the dress I wore on my actual wedding day, this dress for me was the most magical creation I had ever seen
