WIT mama Friday: SAVE THE DATE for a WIT and Bonpoint mother and child afternoon tea

Dear WIT mama Friday readers, 

Before becoming a mummy to my little girl Greta Zita three years ago, I would have never imagined that children's clothes shopping could be as much fun as it turned out to be. One of my favourite things in the world is getting GZ ready in the morning and nothing gives me more pleasure than pairing a little Bonpoint Liberty print blouse to a matching bow in her hair or slipping one of their perfectly knitted cardigans over a pretty dress. Some of my most treasured memories are attached to Bonpoint clothing and to this day I have hold on to these pieces, as I get ready to give Greta a little sister in May.

Bonpoint was a discovery that made becoming a mummy for the first time that little bit more exciting, and for this reason I am so thrilled to ask you to save the date for a super special event taking place in London on Sunday the 13th of March between 3-5pm

I would like to personally invite you and your children to join me for afternoon tea, a spot of shopping, lots of fun activities and yummy treats for our little ones! There will be a gift with purchase, a fabulous raffle and lots more surprises for both mummies and children. It will be a chance for me to say goodbye before I go on maternity leave, meet your children and shop from the fabulous new collection at Bonpoint.

Greta and I can't wait to see you but please save your spot by RSVP to: witevent@bonpoint.com as places are extremely limited.

WIT Baby moon

I've been packing for warmer climates as I prepared to take some time off before my baby comes and I can't fly anymore, so WIT won't be back until Friday the 12th of February. A full round up of my family trip when I'm back, but in the mean time come and see what I'm up to on my IG account and don't forget to check Wardrobe ICONS and our brand new issue of The ICONS Update tomorrow as I reveal wha I've packed in my suitcase.
See you on Friday the 12th of February with a very special post and asking you to save the date for something lovely... x

WIT mama Friday: the only maternity jeans you need

First time around, I was pregnant in the summer so I got away with lots of pretty dresses and sandals. This time around I've started to show in the depths of winter I've been forced to rethink my wardrobe quite drastically. I find it impossible to look particularly good in layers covering a bump, so early on I made the executive decision that this pregnancy was just going to be a "practical" one on the clothes front. On my list were jeans, good bras, long sleeve T-shirts and then I could just wear my oversize jumpers with the lot, also I was determined not to spend a fortune. I went to Topshop and tried on all the different maternity jeans they had and bought two pairs of jeans to take me through the winter. For every day I bought the 'Over The Bump Leigh Jeans': they are essentially a pair of leggings, super comfortable and with an over-the-bump band. 


For my "cooler" days I got the 'Jamie Ripped Jean' - with cut off knees and to which I've cut the bottoms to make them perfect to be worn with flats. They have a low slung, elasticated band and are better to be worn with T-shirts and blouses because you don't get the over-the-bump effect. 


They are both really comfy and come at a reasonable price, I probably prefer the over the bump style a little more because it doesn't rise down but the ripped pair is a little cooler and looks great with a pair of heels. I suggest upping a size, so if you are usually an 8 go for a 10. This is what you will mostly see me wearing in the next couple of months - I promise I will go crazy once bump is out!

Mango sunglasses, Acne jumper, Isabel Marant Etoile scarf, Joseph leggings, LK Bennett shoes, YSL bag
Very quick one today as I get ready for a beyond busy week this week. As of tomorrow I'm taking you with me to Paris fr 48hours and towards the end of the week we shall be packing for warmer climates together. This jumper is keeping me warm on this sunny but cold day in London and what a brilliant buy it was from last season - totally addicted to Acne jumpers since + resuscitating and old handbag favourite, do you remember the YSL Muse!? It was my first ever designer bag I bought with my first paid job as an assistant.   Happy Monday to everyone!
