in the family

Since moving back to the east Kent coast (which 20 years ago felt like losing at life, and now feels like winning), I have spent a lot more time with my family. On the days I work from home, my dad appears at 11am for a coffee and my mum spontaneously shows up around bedtime, giving my daughters reason to sneak downstairs in their nighties demanding hugs and hot milk. One stepmum collects my girls from school, another takes them to the local library. We go for Sunday walks on the beach with my stepbrother and his kids. It’s been an unexpected joy to have our lives so interwoven again – but my jumble of step-parents, siblings and step-siblings have all put grace and effort into making ours one big…

say it, write it, share it.

PAUSE AND REFLECT In our February issue, we posed a big question for three of our favourite writers: who are you really? In response, Sarah Hepola, Sara Collins and Erica Davies penned their thoughts about whether you ever truly know who you are, and how you can retain your sense of style and self as you get older. Kate (@suddenlymummyat40ish on Instagram) got in touch to tell us her thoughts. ‘I read your article Who Are You Really? and it made me start thinking,’ she wrote. ‘Last summer, I adopted a little girl, and life has been a whirlwind since then. As a single adopter in my 40s, settling in and supporting a vulnerable child has been immensely challenging at times. In my long journey to become a mother, I encountered…

5 spring heroes

1 THE PUFFSLEEVE DRESS If you’re a dress-girl, you need to add one with puff sleeves to your repertoire. The wider shoulders and nipped-in waist create a flattering silhouette, and many also have square necklines, which just adds to the romantic vibe. Balance all the girliness with oversized shades, animal-print accessories and a pair of sliders. 2 THE UTILITY PANTS Less All Saints, more elevated. Wear these any time you’d normally reach for denim. Look for pants with big pockets, brass hardware and cuffed ankles, then pair with anything from a slouchy tee to a silky blouse. 3 THE POLO SHIRT This golf-course hero just got its catwalk credentials. It’s as easy to wear as a T-shirt but feels more considered and adds a preppy touch to whatever it’s paired with. The best have finer…

spotlight on anna mason

Despite an impressive CV that cites Karl Lagerfeld, Max Mara and Valentino as former employers, it was only when she launched her own label in 2012 that fashion designer Anna Mason’s childhood dream was finally fulfilled. The big leap came when her first child was born and Mason found herself juggling work as a freelance designer with running her own personal shopping and styling business alongside meeting the demands of a newborn. ‘I felt that I was really missing being creative and that I hadn’t achieved what I’d set out to do in my career. So, I began (very quietly) to make the odd dress. I soon received compliments and orders, and realised I could organically grow my little cottage industry.’ And grow it has.
