Now that I am back with daily updates, I wanted to dedicate one post a week to us new and old mums, to our style dilemmas and children related interests. Fridays seemed like the perfect day: I'm off work (I work a mum-friendly four days a week) and I can report from on-duty mummy status.
"WIT mama Fridays" will be dedicated to all those things that us WIT-mums love: from beautiful, affordable childrenswear, to how to organise the perfect birthday party to the quickest most effective way to apply your make up in under five minutes.
To kick off this new WIT feature (we've had WIT wedding Wednesdays and WIT baby Fridays so far!), I wanted to introduce you to a beautiful new website launching today called The Grace Tales.
The Grace Tales is dedicated to "the stylish mother" and it's everything I ever wanted/needed to inspire my new-mum lifestyle. Georgie Abay, the beautiful mind behind the website, is the current Deputy Editor/Fashion Features Director at Vogue Australia and mother to Arabella Grace who born in November 2012, and she knows about style: "When I was pregnant, I spent a lot of time on the Internet searching for inspiration for everything from nursery decor to baby clothes to maternity wear. I found a little – but I wanted to find a lot. There are so many great sites dedicated to style and beauty, but what about sites dedicated to the stylish mother?"
"I wanted to see inside the world’s of other mothers. How did they decorate their nurseries? What was their take on motherhood? What was their advice to new mothers? How did they handle the sleep deprivation? Where did they buy their children’s clothes? Where did they buy their own clothes?
I’ve adored fashion for as long as I can remember and don’t think I’ll ever stop, but I’ve entered the world of motherhood and find nursery décor and baby clothes just as fascinating. More importantly, I’m surrounded by countless inspiring mothers and I wanted to share their tales with you.
The Grace Tales covers everything from motherhood to fashion to beauty to lifestyle. It is targeted towards style conscious mothers and we hope the gorgeous tales of each mother we profile will inspire you."
So when for an incredible turn of events I happened to be on holiday with my best friend and photographer Julie Adams (who shoots all portraits for the website), and she asked me to be in it for the launch, I just couldn't say no.
Up to now, I had never published a photo of Greta, but I loved the concept and the incredible thought behind The Grace Tales so much, I made an exception. The result is this beautiful photo shoot that I will treasure forever, taken with my baby girl this summer at my in-laws house in Italy, and this little interview which I hope you will find helpful/inspiring.
