WIT's Baby Fridays: 7 days of style with Isabella Oliver maternity wear


Back in June I tweeted this pic as I was in hair and make up getting ready to film a little surprise... and finally I can reveal all! 

 

I spent the day at the fabulous offices of the Isabella Oliver HQ and for one afternoon I got to play dress up with a rail of amazing clothes that I then styled with my own accessories. Being now at the end of my pregnancy and looking back at it I must say I've had a lot of fun dressing up the bump. So  pregnant ladies please don't be put off by it and trust designers such as Isabella Oliver that have put in real work into designing flattering, comfortable and stylish clothing for your pregnancy. I hope you enjoy watching this video and listening to my tips as much as I did doing it and that you find some inspiration on every day maternity looks!

WIT's Baby Friday: Something I've been waiting for...




A little while ago during Christmas in July press shows round, I went to the gorgeous showroom of the Early Learning Centre where I got the privilege to get a sneaky preview of Jools Olivers collection for Mothercare, Little Bird. "Celebrity collaborations" aren't always my cup of tea, but this one really is of a different kind, so tasteful and pretty. Jools designed an oh-so-sweet range of baby clothing and nursery furniture I found myself wanting virtually everything in the collection. 

"Launching in both UK and international stores from 17th August 2012, the new collection will include nursery bedding and accessories, newborn and children’s clothing aimed at babies and children from 0 to 5 years, and original gifts suitable from birth to 3 years. The new collection features a unique mix of high quality, affordable pieces with an eclectic and timeless look and feel that reflects Jools’ love of nostalgic yet modern collectables."




I haven't been this excited about a collection hitting stores since the Marni and HM collaboration! After a long wait, here is a little preview of what I saw on the day..  I love the little gift set, perfect for newborns.



There is a little something for everyone, for the mother to be and for great little gifts and everything is available from today at selected Mothercare stores (find one near you here) and online at www.mothercare.com

How cute is this nursery?

This morning I hit the Marble Arch store for a little preview and the gorgeous Oliver family were all there for the official opening: dad Jamie, mum Jools and their their four beautiful children. I had a chat with Jools who told me this has been a two years in the making job, so she is obviously really proud of the result.  I went a little mad and bought two huge bags of things...


Here's what's in it...



I love this soft  laundry basket perfect to collect
 all your  ready-to-be-washed baby clothes £34.99 for two


I'm getting this monitor for my friend's baby  £20

This door stop is one of my favorite things £16

Perfect gift box for a new born:
hat, slippers and a little rattle all in a  chic lunch box

This bambi was the inspiration behind Jool's collection £12 

I also love this set of cot sheets for later on from £15

Putting my "heels" up



Ciao girls!

Don't worry, no baby yet but I am taking a  break from daily photo updates for a while. My baby is coming soon and I have a lot of work to get done before I do, so little time to upload photos and do posts. I will still be around on Twitter (@WITblog) with great shopping finds,  little updates and posting my WIT Baby Friday. See you soon.
Love,

My first Olympic moment


There's a little something called London 2012 going on at the moment and although I didn't express much interest in it at first, ever since I watched the opening ceremony I've been an avid (tv) spectator. We've managed to find some last minute tickets for and Italy and a UK volleyball match so today I'm cheering for both my countries! So much fun.

WITbabyFriday: 8.5 months.. it's all about comfy



By the time you are 34 weeks pregnant you will find that you are desperate for clothes that fit. And by fit I mean clothes that contour your body, that you are able to stretch, sit, walk and put your legs up in. I've literally been craving for a simple, black, jersey skirt that I can wear with a variety of different tops and shoes and I found it in the perfect Isabella Oliver skirt. I never thought I would wear something quite so body-con but not only is it one of the most comfortable things I've worn in months but it's also super stylish. 
One of those things you must try to believe. 

Petit Bateau top, Isabella Oliver skirt, Prada sandals, Smythson bag

A ruched maternity skirt, designed in Isabella Oliver signature jersey
to ensure a flattering silhouette at every stage.
 This easy care style looks fabulous teamed with an array of tops for endless looks
– wear as a strapless dress for double the versatility
This style works particularly well during pregnancy, the 4th trimester and beyond.


A breton top a stylish bag and a cool pair of designer flats totally jazz up this staple skirt- here's how I would break it down

I'm having a...

..."if I weren't pregnant kind-of-day"!



And if that were the case I would be wearing heels! I miss heels! Mad, towering, cool, leg enhancing, fabulous heels! I would wear a  simple navy dress (like this shot from The Sartorialist, my ultimate favorite) and one of these craaaazy pair of sandals topped up with the glossiest pedicure. So bored of flats...
