HARRY STYLES x GUCCI – CRUISE 2019

I don’t normally look at Menswear, but I mean, ANY excuse to get a little bit of Harry Styles on my blog is fine by me… Just look at this new Gucci Tailoring campaign that landed this morning.

I *think* this second campaign for Gucci is even better than the first

24 year old Harry is seen in the great outdoors for his return to Gucci Tailoring – photographed again by Glen Luchford. The setting is less chip-shop and more historic this time however, as Harry is photographed in Vila Lante, just north of Rome. Similarly to his first shoot with the brand though, small animals make a cute return whilst again, Harry pushes his sartorial boundaries with a mixture of fabrics and textures, creating the perfect match of brand and muse.

Here, Harry is modelling the brand’s Cruise 2019 Tailoring collection – with his co-stars this time taking on the form of piglet, goat and lamb – against the backdrop of the stunning Renaissance gardens of the 16th Century Italian villa.

“The campaign playfully positions Harry Styles’s personal, urban take on the Gucci tailoring wardrobe amongst the classic, stylised landscape of the gardens, where fountains, grottoes and mazes characterise the ancient surroundings,” reads a statement from the brand released this morning.

It goes without saying that the return of the hairband provokes images of ‘old Harry’, or ‘Harry BC (before hair cut) – and also,  the distinct resemblance between Harry and Keith Richards.

“We’ve long seen Harry rock a Keith Richards-style headscarf, but this is an updated take that few could pull of like the singer-songwriter does. The hairband becomes a fitting accompaniment to the coloured jacquards, patches, checkered prints, unusual proportions and a particularly fetching pair of lilac tailored trousers. It’s a heightened take on his on-stage look”.

Say what you like, but I personally love this shoot. It has a grand air of Oscar Wilde about it. Harry looks like a real dandy man in the new Tailoring; full of wise quips and charisma.

The full campaign will be released in November, so keep your eyes peeled on @Gucci first and foremost for the latest updates.

The release of the above collection of images comes two months after Harry completed his world tour, which not only confirmed his status as a solo star post-One Direction, but also raised $1.2 million for charity. (There literally isn’t anything that Harry can’t do wrong – at all).

ONLINE NEW ARRIVALS // 14.09.18

My first weekly round-up of New Arrivals that have hit the Online Stores this week. I’ll do this every Friday, just in time for the weekend – though, sadly for my purse strings, as we all know, online shopping definitely isn’t limited to the weekend! All items are available online, at time of publishing this post.

For a side note, I’m Mid-Sized. I’m 5 ft nothing. I’m somewhere between 10-14, depending on the shop. We are the forgotten women. I hope my pick’s are inclusive for all. But just to give you an idea of my stature; and I hope my pick’s help you too, whatever your dress size!

Don’t forget to tag me in any shots of your purchases – tag me @judypink and use the hashtag #NeverConciseShopping

WHAT MAMA WORE MONDAY // 23.07.18

Anyone else feeling completely frazzled out? Maybe all this staying up late watching Love Island and then not being able to sleep ‘cos drama is starting to take it’s toll! Good job it’s only on for another week… waaaaaaah!💘 #DaniFish #JackandDani #Jani #imloyalbabe

This is my look of the day as I join in with another  #whatmamaworemonday – as hosted by – @heyitsromeca & @rachelthehat 🖤

Today’s tiredness calls for red lips (yep, that old “red lips to distract from the tired eyes” trick) and lots of leopard! It’s a little chillier today, so I’m going for Vans and a Fedora too. This dress is perfect for just chucking on in a hurry; its comfy and will obviously work well into Autumn/Winter with tights and a leather jacket.

What are you wearing this Monday?

Hope you have a lovely Monday where you are!

Women’s Fashion | Check Mate.

I’ve been looking at Womenswear for some style inspiration this week and I’m noticing a lot of check prints across online stores. Check print is a great way to jazz up your Winter wardrobe – you can go for full on geometric digital prints or more muted tones to suit the weather.

Here are some of my favourite pieces, on my must-by list!

(Some check’s might be cheating as they’re not quite your stereotype check’s… but you’ll catch my drift, I’m sure).

An Eli update: 4 weeks young.

Weight at 4 weeks: 9lb

Length at 4 weeks: 53cm

Yesterday marked Mr Eli’s 4 week birthday. I actually cannot believe how quickly these first 4 weeks have flown by! I also can’t believe how quickly our little boy is changing too! He’s so strong and curious about the world; he can hold and move his head so well, already!

When your newborn, is newborn, their hearing is checked in the hospital. Unfortunately, due to my quick delivery, Eli had A LOT of fluid/blood stuck in his ears for a few days after the birth, which meant that the hearing test failed to work and would be repeated. We weren’t concerned because Eli had proven he could hear very well! From as soon as we got him through the front door he looked for where sounds were coming from and would jump if there was a bang or a clap etc. So yesterday I took him for the repeat hearing test… we got to go on a big train!

Mr Eli on the big train!

Granted, we literally went one stop on the big train – but still! He was as good as gold all the way there (even when Mummy got lost on a building site!). Then as soon as we walked into the testing room, Mr Tetch arrived! Which meant that it was difficult to get a clear reading. Breast feeding commenced and a clear response was found straight away. So that’s done with 🙂

We’re still awaiting an appointment for Physio for Eli’s mild Talipes however. I’ve been chasing the hospital on a daily basis but am getting nowhere. It’s a good job we have common sense and have been massaging his feet ourselves (which is definitely working, we can see a difference already).

Our little (Converse) family.

Couldn’t resist doing a couple of snaps of these! Daddy, Mummy and Baby Converse! TOO CUTE.

My sister surprised me this week at work by posting the Baby Converse direct to me… So of, course I had to get an obligatory shot of our little (Converse) family before Baby Boy arrives! We’ll have to get another shot afterwards, with us all wearing our respective Hi-Tops!

I actually cannot wait to get our Baby Boy in these… they are 3-6 months, so hopefully, if his Talipes has progressed, we’ll have him fixed before he’s 6 months old!

Like father, like son…

I could not resist this tiny gingham shirt from Baby Gap the other day… OH has a very similar one from Ben Sherman. Albeit, OH, is more into his plain oxford shirts these days – but we won’t tell anyone that ;o

OH and I both wear Converse too – so will definitely be getting our little one into them as soon as he needs them! 😀 He’ll be wearing his with some titchy shirts and dungaree’s however; old school.

Did you dress your little ones in similar clothing to you or your partner?
