Another week has flown by! Here's a recap of the Prime Minister's week.

On Monday, the PM was in the House of Commons updating Members on the EU Council meeting. The PM wore her navy Herno blazer and trousers, accessorising with the silver Mirta Bijoux necklace and bracelet and the leopard Kitty heels from Charlotte Olympia.

On Tuesday, May was part of the platform party to welcome the King and Queen of the Netherlands to the UK. The PM wore our favourite navy spotted Daniel Blake jacket, teaming it with a skirt, navy hat from Liz Felix and the navy Twiggy heels from Russell & Bromley.

And in the evening, the PM attended the State Dinner at Buckingham Palace. Debuting a new navy floor length dress with black embellished sleeve detailing, May boldly accessorised with the Audrey suede kitten heels from LK Bennett and the silver Valorie clutch from Anya Hindmarch.

On Wednesday, the PM took part in the weekly Prime Minister's Questions session. It was another day for Daniel Blake, this time May opting for the bright blue Origami jacket and matching skirt. The glitzy (and very chic) Rosebud kitten heels from Russell & Bromley were her shoe of choice.

And later in the day, the PM welcomed the King and Queen of the Netherlands to Number 10. This photo is iconic - and bright colours work so well against the black door! May also welcomed the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic to Number 10.

Thursday saw the PM launch the annual Poppy Appeal. Theresa May bought her poppy on the doorstep of Number 10 Downing Street alongside Poppy Mitchell (R), Barbara Weatherill (L of PM) and Claire Rowcliffe (L). May wore her black and white Escada blazer with a black skirt, and debuted a new pair of shoes from Russell & Bromley - the very daring Starlet court in zebra print!

And on Friday, the PM was in her Maidenhead constituency where she planted a tree as part of the Queens Commonwealth Canopy. Looking bright in her striped jacket and the navy Cocktail Russell & Bromley loafers!

Black Tie Wonders: Theresa May's Evening Style


This week's State Dinner for the King and Queen of the Netherlands saw Theresa May pick a fabulous new evening gown for the occasion. Whilst I don't have this confirmed (as yet!) I'm pretty confident that her floor length navy dress with sequinned black arm detailing is an Amanda Wakeley number.

Which pieces does the Prime Minister don for black tie occasions?

The red dress: last seen at Blenheim Palace for the visit of President Trump, this is one of May's more frequently worn evening gowns. We first saw it in 2016, teamed with a sky high pair of red patent heels from LK Bennett. We've also seen the PM wear it to the annual Mansion House dinner. It's daring and the perfect choice for spicing up the Westminster dinner circuit! Designer intel is still unknown - so if you have any tips then let us know!

The bottle green gown: another chic choice, this deep green, floor length dress has a sheer overlay and is embroidered with delicate black flowers. The gown has made a few appearances in 2018, notably at the Commonwealth Heads of Government dinner at Buckingham Palace and at a trip to Salzburg in the summer. May also wore it to Mansion House, teaming it with the chic gold Twister block heels from Russell & Bromley.

The cream Amanda Wakeley coat: mixing it up, May has a great cream and silver embellished coat from Amanda Wakeley that she often wears to evening events. Teamed with trousers, this is relaxed and quirky cool look.

The black lace jumpsuit: perhaps my favourite outfit in the mix, the PM's daring black lace jumpsuit is one that turned heads on its first outing. We've seen her pair it with those chic red patent heels- as well as a pair of glitzy jewelled black heels for a night at the Pride of Britain Awards.

The midnight Amanda Wakeley dress: and who remembers the sleeveless, midnight mini dress from Amanda Wakeley from 2016? Bring this back Theresa!

And on the accessories front?

A sprinkling of Anya Hindmarch: we often see May take her vintage silver braided Valorie evening clutch. It's the perfect size for all those essentials, and works well with each of the choices above. A great investment piece!

Swarovski jewellery: who doesn't love a bit of bling? May dons some seriously chic Swarovski costume jewellery for her evening events. I particularly love an oversized cuff and earrings that the PM has worn on a few occasions.

Hermes scarf: and for those chilly nights, an oversized Hermes scarf is a great accessory to have! The bolder the better.

Westminster and Brussels: Theresa May's Week


It was a busy week of business for the Prime Minister - with the launch of the Government's loneliness strategy and three days in Brussels. Here's a recap of what Theresa May got up to.

On Monday, the PM attended the launch of the Loneliness Strategy in London.  Launching the strategy, Mrs May confirmed English GPs will be able to refer lonely people to community and voluntary activities by 2023, as she paid tribute to murdered Labour MP Jo Cox, who had campaigned to end loneliness before her death.

May wore her bright white Piazza Sempione jacket with black trousers, accessorising with the new season Amanda Wakeley rose gold bracelet and necklace.

Later in the day, the PM was in the House, providing an update on Brexit negotiations and in the evening, she hosted a National Black History Month reception at Number 10.

On Wednesday, the PM took part in the weekly PMQs session before heading off to Brussels for the first day of the EU Council meeting. It was a red, white and blue outfit - namely, the navy Escada skirt suit, a white top and a jewelled red necklace. The navy Twiggy kitten heels made a reappearance!

For the second day of the EU Council meeting on Thursday, one of our favourite outfits was back. May wore her purple Orchid skirt and jacket from Daniel Blake, teaming it with the iconic leopard Kitty leopard heels from Charlotte Olympia.

And on Friday, the PM attended the 12th Asia-Europe Meeting in the Europa Building. We love her striking new striped jacket - especially teamed with the Delicious leopard flats from Russell & Bromley!

Back to Westminster: Theresa May's Week


MPs returned to Westminster this week after the very long party conference season! And for the PM it was back to business on Monday as she returned to No 10.

In the evening, May attended The Sun Who Cares Wins Awards in central London, wearing her black and white Escada blazer, black trousers and the now infamous black Curve 'dancing' shoes with red heel from Russell & Bromley. I think we all need a pair!

On Tuesday, May accepted the inaugural 'In The Arena' award from the McCain Institute for her work to tackle modern slavery. The PM met Cindy McCain, widow of the late Senator McCain and former Vice President Joe Biden. May debuted a new Amanda Wakeley dress - we love it! And she teamed it with the Issa x LK Bennett kitten heels.

On Wednesday, it was back to the Commons for the return of Prime Minister's Questions. The PM wore our all time favourite Daniel Blake navy spotted jacket with navy trousers, opting for the navy Twiggy kitten heels. Following PMQs she welcomed 120 British Army personnel to Parliament thanking them for their service overseas.  And in the afternoon, she held a reception marking Mental Health Day at Number 10.

In the evening, May attended the Carlton Political Dinner, wearing the quirky cool black lace jumpsuit. Any spots on the shoes - then let us know!

And on Thursday, the PM visited Ogilvy as part of the launch of the Race at Work Charter, which gives businesses a clear set of actions to work towards in helping to create greater opportunities for ethnic minority employees at work. May wore her navy and silver thread Daniel Blake jacket, teaming it with a black skirt. The PM accessorised with the new season Amanda Wakeley rose gold and black ribbon oversized chain and necklace  - a firm favourite!
