It’s in the Jeans! Mum and I add some Essentials to our Winter Wardrobe.

IMG_2741Looking at my rather dismal winter wardrobe, I decided it was high-time for a spruce up! My life has dramatically changed since last winter given I was pregnant, so a few new pieces are desperately needed. I’m thinking light knits, comfy denim and easy to wear jackets and coats, no fuss and easy to fold pieces.  Jeans West tick all the boxes with a great range of wool blends and stretchy denim, particularly handy after having a baby.

IMG_2938A typical day see’s me throwing on my Super Skinny jeans from the Luxe Lounge denim range which offer the softness of knitted jersey, with the authentic look of worn-in denim. Couple that with a light wool blend jumper and a jacket, Hello outfit!IMG_2677

I need practical, simple style that is easy to throw on and pack, Layla and I have already been on several trips in her short little life and packing isn’t as easy as it used to be. Having pieces that I can easily fold into a suitcase that team together well and are lightweight are everything!

IMG_2899My Mum accompanied me on my winter wardrobe shop and after vowing she would not be talked into a pair of snug jeans walked out with “the most comfortable and flattering jeans ever”, her words! She looked amazing in her ‘skinny jeans’ from the Luxe Lounge which fit snug through the hips and leg for a sleek, smooth silhouette.  She teamed it with a stylish shirt creating a fashionable look. Mum, also a traveller loves the fact that these pieces do not require ironing and are light weight and easy to pack.

My Bright and Beautiful Resort Wardrobe.

When I’m on holidays or reporting from a beautiful travel destination half the fun is dressing in accordance to my surroundings.

On my recent trip to the Alila Villas Soori in Bali I went for gorgeous, loose, light and bright pieces from the Camilla collection. I love to slip on a silk, beaded dress at any time of the day, they feel as light as a feather in the warm Balinese sun and float on your body rather than cling in the sometimes hot/humid weather.  Throwing a silk dress over a one piece Camilla swimsuit is also perfect as they compliment one another and both pieces together serve as a great transitional ensemble for the pool to lunch, dinner or to the bar!

The Blue Python high shorts and split back top from Watson & Watson is a perfect little vacation piece which suits any activity and is also smart enough to wear out. It’s a flattering two piece which can also be worn as separates, allowing your wardrobe to go further.

I loved the NOOKIE black Playa neoprene bandeau top and bottoms for soaking up the sun and lounging around the pool. The top also works really well under a dress, with or without straps, again making an easy transition from the pool to the bar, lets face it a black bikini top which doubles as a bra is a must for any girls holiday wardrobe.

Happy Travels. Laura XX
