The sun is out today and it feels like Spring! I am wearing a dress by Pyrus, £103.00, over my grey AG skinnies and some layered gold jewellery by Davina Combe.
So my latest exciting news is that Thea is going to have a sibling. I am now four months pregnant with number two and starting to think, as the bump is beginning to show, about my wardrobe for the next six months. Although I believe you should stay true to whatever style you usually wear, I find with pregnancy that even your day to day outfits require much more careful consideration. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t still rock statement styles when you’re pregnant and it certainly doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous. We don’t do official maternity wear at Katie & Jo, but we offer plenty of styles that would work perfectly for pregnancy and which you would be able…
I love it when the temperature drops and I can wrap up in luxe layers (until the novelty wears off at the start of January when new season deliveries start to arrive). Today I am wearing a Libelula coat which has a beautiful pleated back and gives my waist a bit of definition which I really need. I have accessorized with a Christy’s hat in case it rains, again, on my cycle home, and an Ashiana scarf which adds a splash of colour to my outfit.
Following our earlier post here is Katie G wearing the Trippy Kitty Silken Favours shirt £265.00, in the shop today. A fabulous fantasy print to brighten up a Tuesday! Teamed with the new Goldsign Zebra coated leggings and Rag & Bone Harrow boots in camel £389.00.
I love the way this shirt delicate silk shirt by Baum Und Pferdgarten, with pretty ruffle detail down the front, is toughened up by the print and unusual colours. It would definitely add some personality to your wardrobe. Style it with skinny jeans and point-toe pumps.
I adore this cream fur coat from Libelula – it is the perfect winter party coat. Tonight I’m going straight out to a dinner party wearing it with a Rebecca Taylor leopard jumper, AG black legging jeans, teamed with my Ash jalouse woodash boots and Lamb clutch bag.
We have recently started stocking the Danish brand Baum Und Pferdgarten. ‘Characteristic for the two designers are their fascination of contrasts which gives their collections a dualistic touch. It can be as a meeting between feminine and masculine, minimal contra grandiose, shiny versus matte or something completely different as their aim always is to surprise.’ I love the quirky playfulness of their designs and today am wearing one of their dresses with a Sarah Forsyth clutch bag.
Opt for looks in darker shades and luxe fabrics when choosing a dress for an autumn wedding, and accessorize accordingly. We love these two dresses by Libelula which are very flattering and give enough cover for church. If your budget is a little lower, Ingenue is a great dress brand for easy shapes and eye catching prints. Elisa dress in a graphic pink flower print. For added warmth, top it with a tuxedo blazer, sequined cardigan or fur trimmed shawl such as this cashmere and rabbit fur version by Hayley Menzies. Maison Scotch Boucle Blazer in Snow A bag, or clutch is essential for a long day, and both Lamb 1887 and Sarah…
Autumn has always been my favourite season. It’s far easier to look stylish in autumn/winter than summer. I love layering, knitwear, leather, parkas and covering up from head to toe. I have fallen in love with this sweater by Hunkydory £150.00, it also comes in grey and burgundy, and have become a devoted fan of DL1961 jeans. These are Amanda Skinny Nervana £165.00. The clutch is by Lamb 1887.
This oh so comfortable jersey dress by Maison Scotch (£85.00 in store only at Katie & Jo). It has clever ruching and some aztec detail around the waist to hide my tummy. Wore it with gladiators to dinner with my lovley friend Serena at Wahaca on Southbank last night.
