LAURA'S FAVOURITE DESIGNERS

“Right now I love Olivia Rubin and LoveShackFancy, they are such stunning brands. The Sienna Ombre pastel dress and the Dannii bright sequin dress from Olivia’s collection are special favourites and all the floral pieces from LoveShackFancy are on my summer wish-list. The great thing about both brands is that they are so versatile they can be worn both across the seasons layered with chunky knits which means you get lots of wear out of them. “

SUMMER STYLING

“Every summer I love to build my wardrobe around a few designer dresses – there are some pieces I go back to year after year, I think if you go for timeless pieces they are really worth the spend. Sometimes I love feminine floaty dresses and other days I feel like wearing denim with a fab pair of heels and a statement top. I usually start off by picking the actual main piece of clothing and then work in the accessories and shoes around that. It depends if I am pregnant or not! I love a pair of leather trousers or a high-waisted leather skirt, a statement knit and earrings. But when pregnant I am all about dresses – I didn’t wear a single pair of jeans this time around.”

THE SUMMER BAG SWITCH UP

“I believe in investing in bags that will last a lifetime, Chanel bags are an enduring favourite. Having said that I do love Cult Gaia and Staud bags in the summertime and there are lots of new season Givenchy styles I have my eye on to wear this summer too.”

LAURA’S TRAVEL STYLE TIPS

“I always layer up in soft knits for flights (I love Lucy Nagle cashmere ones), some big sunglasses (oversized Azzedine Alaïa ones are my current favs), a big tote is an essential when travelling with children as you always need so many little things to hand. A good moisturiser is also a must and a comfy pair of shoes because you never know how much walking you are going to do -Golden Goose sneakers are my go-tos right now.”

I’M NEVER WITHOUT

“Oversized earrings are a style signature for me and I say the bigger the better, I am loving the new Isabel Marant earrings and Baublebar are also super fun and such a great price point.”

ON DRESSING DAUGHTERS

“I do love dressing them [her daughters Mila, Anoushka and her newest arrival Luna Octavia] in mini me looks but also love having them in twinning outfits (which might be very different to mine!) I just love having girls and dressing them up in cute outfits – I have to make the most of it now while they let me!”
