Say hello to Holly’s Must-Haves, the denim edit. The TV star, fashion favourite and Mama to three, has hand-picked her favourite pieces from the latest denim collection at M&S, including some of her most-loved shapes and styles – think the denim dress, the button-through skirt and, of course, the classic skinny jean.

THE Denim Midi Shirt Dress – £49.50

This denim shirt dress is as comfortable as it is stylish. Sitting at a midi length, the long sleeve dress features a smart belt detail that’s perfect for adding a touch of shaping at the waist, while statement buttons and two front pockets offer an extra splash of interest.
Holly says:“This denim dress is so versatile. Try yours with a simple ankle boot for a classic look that will see you through season after season.”

A versatile piece, wear zipped up for a neat finish or half open for layered looks – or customise the silhouette by rolling the legs and arms up for a cropped finish. This pure cotton jumpsuit is made from sustainably sourced cotton, for a fashion statement that offers supreme style and comfort.

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).

Boys Clothing: Topshop Mini ‘Dino’ Jumper.


Topshop Mini ‘Dino’ Sweater, £15.00. Click here to purchase.
OH and I absolutely love the idea of our baby boy in Space and Dinosaur printed clothing… and just spotted this on the Topshop website. It’s absolutely lovely! ‘Twill be perfect with the new Converse we have for him!

Unfortunately, Topshop do not stock Mini at many stores anymore so this is going to have to be an online purchase. Topshop also charge for their shipping, which is £4 (!!). It’s a tiny jumper! Does anyone have a promotional code for money off/free shipping so that I can justify this purchase please?

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!

UNIQLO: Undercover – New Childrenswear.

 

I was browsing Uniqlo.com in search of baggy shirts that would be big enough to fit over my massive bump; when I saw this new range – “Uniqlo Undercover“. A clothing range for families of today, in collaboration between Uniqlo and Jun Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER clothing label. I’d always said how the brand should branch out into Childrenswear – and here it is (albeit limited in styles!).

Here are my favourites – obviously, I’m biased towards Boy clothing now that we’re having a boy, but there are some cute Girls and Unisex styles too!
