Westminster, NATO and Trump: Theresa May's Week

It's been an interesting week for the PM...

On Monday, Theresa May was in Westminster, updating the House on her Chequers agreement and Brexit. May wore the navy spot Daniel Blake jacket with navy trousers and the Audrey red suede kitten heels from LK Bennett. She accessorised with a string of pearls.

In the afternoon she welcomed the Chancellor of Austria to Number 10.

On Tuesday, May attended a service marking 100 years of the RAF at Westminster Abbey. In a subtle nod to their uniforms, the Prime Minister wore a navy shift from Amanda Wakeley, teaming it with a sharp white blazer from Peserico. She accessorised with an outstanding navy and white hat from Liz Felix Millinery, based in Henley on Thames, and the navy Twiggy kitten heels.

Later in the day, May attended the Western Balkans Summit.

On Wednesday, the Prime Minister was in Brussels for the NATO Summit. May wore her bright blue Daniel Blake Orchid skirt suit, a string of pearls and the black Twiggy kitten heels. A powerful combination!

And on Thursday, one of our favourite Peserico jackets was back in the mix. The navy and white number looked great paired with cropped navy trousers and the Audrey red suede kitten heels. May also accessorised with her faithful oversized chain necklace and bracelet from Amanda Wakeley.

The PM returned to the UK ready to welcome President Trump and the First Lady to Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire for the first day of their working visit. For the black tie dinner, May wore her red silk long gown (with a daring back slit,) and the red patent LK Bennett heels.



Friday saw Theresa May accompany Trump to Sandhurst before they headed to Chequers. May debuted an awesome new jacket from Daniel Blake- the Nerhu in bright satsuma. She teamed it with black trousers and the leopard Delicious flats from Russell & Bromley.



Amanda Wakeley Evening Wear: The PM's new dress

9.7.18


We've had a few messages asking about the PM's great dress that she wore at the Conservatives summer event last week.  

After some scouting, it is the charcoal tulle Marta midi dress by Amanda Wakeley! Made from layers of airy light tulle, the silk midi dress is the epitome of feminine elegance. Delicate, gathered detail through the dress gives this piece an ethereal and almost Grecian quality. 

Whilst we can't see which shoes Theresa May paired it with, she did accessorise with the rose gold and black grosgrain ribbon oversized chain bracelet and necklace, also from Amanda Wakeley. A fine choice!



The Hague and Berlin: Theresa May's Week

7.7.18


From Berlin to Brexit, here's a recap of Theresa May's week.

On Monday, the PM was in Number 10 before delivering a statement in the Commons chamber. May wore her oatmeal Daniel Blake jacket with trousers and the leopard Delicious flats from Russell & Bromley.




On Tuesday, May visited Prime Minister Rutte in The Hague. It was a return to the great violet Paule Ka jacket and dress for this trip! May teamed it with the leopard Kitty heels from Charlotte Olympia.

Later in the day she held a Pride reception at Number 10.




On Wednesday, May took part in the weekly Prime Minister's Questions session. She wore her fierce purple Daniel Blake Orchid jacket with matching skirt, teaming it with the oversized silver chain necklace and bracelet from Amanda Wakeley and the red and violet block Link In heels from Russell & Bromley.

In the evening, the PM attended the Spectator summer party and held a reception to mark 70 years of the NHS at Number 10.

From Westminster to Brussels, here's a recap of Theresa May's week!

On Monday, the PM welcomed Donald Tusk to Number 10. Looking great in summer neturals, May wore her white Peserico blazer with navy trousers and the navy Cocktail loafers with sparkly heels. Later in the day she held a reception for Young Leaders in the No 10 garden.

And we hope that on Friday she had a well deserved rest!

Theresa May's 2018 Fashion Highlights: January to June

25.6.18


Six months of 2018 have passed, and it's time for the Prime Minister's fashion highlights for the first half of the year.

Outerwear

It seems strange to be writing about a coat when it's summer, but I am still in love with May's Herno coat. Perhaps a Christmas gift, but the PM wore this solidly throughout the colder months at the start of the year. And who could blame her! The navy wool outer has a glittery zip detail, with the puffa still inset adding a touch of athleisure to both her work and off-duty wardrobe. A really great piece.


Workwear



Making up the majority of May's wardrobe, the PM invested in some great new workwear pieces the first half of this year, as well as bringing back some of her tried and trusted items.

Quite possibly my favourite outfit, the PM looked awesome when she welcomed President Macron to Sandhurst at the start of the year. Wearing her navy spotted Daniel Blake military jacket with trousers, the snowy weather didn't stop Theresa from bringing out our favourite pair of kitten heels- the leopard Charlotte Olympias. And to top it all off, the navy Herno jacket got an outing too!


May's other Herno jacket pic was a navy tweed number for Davos. Tapping into the brand's athleisure theme, the jacket is sort of Chanel-esque- and comes complete with a chain belt. May wore this a few weeks later at a Downing Street reception for Baltic nations, teaming it with a pair of multi coloured kitten heels.


Daniel Blake is a staple in the Prime Minister's wardrobe, and we've seen a few new tailored jackets from the London tailor added to the mix.


A navy jacket with a subtle silver stripe is particularly striking, and May teamed it with her silver Mirta Bijoux necklace on a visit to Sweden and Norway in the spring. We've also seen the PM wear a textured black jacket in the same style from Blake both at home and abroad.



Whilst these are two great jackets, I will always love her purple Origami suit and the blue Orchid suit! Iconic.



And we've seen some of the classics make a reappearance in 2018! Remember the Sloane dress that Theresa wore in her Vogue shoot? Here it is again in Downing Street!


May teamed it with the Rosehip kitten heels from Russell & Bromley.

We also had the navy Roland Mouret dress make its reappearance at a Buckingham Palace reception. Bring this back again PM!


And who can forget the red Amanda Wakeley jacket... here it is again making a patriotic appearance for the launch of Women2Win Wales. Teamed with red patent LK Bennett kitten heels of course.


Evening wear



Sassy and chic, the PM totally rocks a jumpsuit! We loved the black lace jumpsuit she picked for the Conservative Party Black and White Ball at the Natural History Museum- making it even more iconic with patent red heels. She repeated the look a few weeks later at an Association dinner.


And we had a new dress in the shape of a black Amanda Wakeley off the shoulder number for the Westminster Correspondents Dinner. The sheer sleeves are particularly cool. The dress is currently on sale!


Special occasions



The Mays attended a Buckingham Palace Garden Party in June. Wearing her stunning Maria Grachvogel and a new bespoke hat from the great Liz Felix, May teamed this chic look with a nude clutch purse and the Amanda Wakeley chain necklace and bracelet. If only we could see the shoes!

New purchases

We always get excited about new pieces in the Prime Minister's wardrobe, and Mrs May has not disappointed!



A favourite of many dedicated readers, May wore a great blue wrap dress for a Conservative Association event in Maidenhead. We're still on the hunt for the designer- so if you have a tip let us know!


Debuting at the Spring Forum, May's white jacket from Piazza Sempione was the perfect choice against a bright blue background. The scuba fabric makes it a little different from other pieces in her wardrobe but it certainly has wearability, with the PM wearing it at the G7, CHOGM and for other visits in the UK.


CHOGM presented a week of different outfits, and the addition of a new Amanda Wakeley dress was a welcome one! May picked the Prince of Wales check dress, complete with a bright orange lining and highlights for a visit to the National Cybersecurity Centre and an evening reception in the city. Love it.



Shoes

Turning to my favourite area of the PM's wardrobe, we've had a fair few epic shoe moments so far this year!


One of the cutest purchases are the Rosehip kitten heels from Russell & Bromley. May has teamed them with several of her skirt suits, brightening up the Commons with a little flower power!


And we had another red pair added to the mix. The Audrey golden flame kitten heels from LK Bennett made their debut during CHOGM and have been seen several times since.


But the leopard Charlotte Olympias will always have a special place in our shoe obsessed heart.

Accessories


Big and bold necklaces have remained the name of the day for the PM. She expanded her Amanda Wakeley collection with the rose gold chain necklace and matching bracelet, braided with black grosgrain ribbon. A cute new addition!

And it has been good to see some of her beautiful Hermes scarves making reappearances. May jazzed up an all black skirt suit with a red and purple number, and marked #GreenforGrenfall with a green silk number. We've also seen a larger Hermes scarf added to the repertoire- any tips on this one gratefully received!

Even though we're only halfway through the year, there will be more epic Prime Ministerial moments to come! What's been you favourite so far?
