Johnnie-B-Teen-Boden-Mara-dress-Geo-hearts-on-@stylebyjj-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell My daughter J and I spent a fun Sunday morning out in Shoreditch, taking photos of her new Boden dresses from the Johnnie B range for teens.

I have always loved Boden clothes and both my children grew up wearing Mini Boden, so we were thrilled to do this joint post on our favourite brand.

The dresses and shoes that Jojo wore were selected by herself.

Here, she is wearing the Mara dress with Geo hearts.

Jojo-@stylewithjj-in-Boden-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell I asked Jojo why she chose this dress and here’s her answer:

” I have always adored my Mini Boden dresses and this dress has the elements I love about Mini Boden, with its bright colours and strong prints. However, it also makes the right transition for me into my teens. It’s just perfect for parties and I’m loving its prom feel. I can’t wait to wear it when I go off to Asia this Summer. Perfect for those poolside evening parties. To complete the look, I would wear rounded sunglasses. I have the perfect pair of shades from the Mini Boden range which I have kept all these year.”

Mara-dress-Johnnie-B-Boden-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Like Jojo, I absolutely adore this bold heart shaped print. Beautiful when contrasted against this minty wall.

Shoreditch-photoshoot-Boden-dress-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell The bright pink straps and belt provide the cutest accent colour against the print of the dress.

Little-Moose-unicorn-necklace-and-dress-Johnnie-B-Boden-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell This is how Jojo has chosen to accessorise her Boden Mara dress.

Unicorn, it seems, is very on trend this season. A bit like the Pineapple trend of last Summer.

This necklace is from Little Moose and the bright pink tail and mane of the unicorn so perfectly compliments the straps of the dress.

Johnnie-B-sandals-Riviera-suede-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Yes, we will be off to Asia this Summer, so pretty footwear is a must for pedicured toes.

Jojo picked these suede leather sandals. Love how the straps cross over at the ankles. Because it is so minimalistic in its look, that bright pop of blue looks great with bold prints and can be paired easily with pastel tones, such as the candy pink of her nails.

Johnnie-B-Greta-dress-on-Jojo-@stylewithjj-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Here, Jojo has selected the Greta dress with a Dusty Lilac coastline print. Again, I asked her why she picked this.

Here’s her answer: ‘”This dress takes me back to when I was 7 years old, I love how it gives me that nostalgic feel of previous Summers spent overseas and also in Cornwall by the seaside. The thin material of the dress makes me feel light on my toes and I just love the pretty frills at the neckline.”

Johnnie-B-Summer-dress-modelled-by-Jojo-for-Boden-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell Such a sweet dress with the perfect mix of lights and brights.

Fox-pendant-by-Little-Moose-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell This Hazel cardigan in orange is just the perfect colour against the aqua and pink tones of the dress.

Jojo has picked this cute acrylic fox necklace from Little Moose which matches with her cardigan.

Jojo-@stylewithjj-modelling-Boden-on-Little-Big-Bell Jojo and I hope you have enjoyed this joint mother – daughter post. Again, I’m proud to say that Little Bell is back blogging with Big Bell.

Wishing you a lovely week. I will be back hopefully this weekend with a new post. I might be challenging myself with styling in neutrals. Invariably, colour will creep in, but let’s see how I do. So do keep an eye out for the new post. Till then, have a good day!

Kate-Spade-Somerset-cardigan-2-on-Little-Big-Bell 2 weeks ago, I attended the blogging conference, Alt Summit, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Fashion it seems is a major part of Alt Summit.

I was lucky to have received the styling expertise of Kate Spade London’s stylist, Meghan Moore. Together, we were able to come up with 2 outfits.

The first outfit above, consisted of the Somerset cardigan in Rose Jade, and the Deco Polka dot Coreen cupcake mini skirt.

The cardigan and skirt are not available on Kate Spade UK’s website, but you may be able to purchase them from the London Sloane Square shop. Alternatively, you can purchase it online from Avenue K , who ship internationally.

The Day Tripper black necklace is available from Kate Spade London.

Geraldine-Tan-in-Kate-spade-Little-Big-Bell So here I am wearing the outfits. I learned a few styling secrets from Meghan. She suggested that the cardigan should be worn buttoned up as a top, and it should also be worn back to front.

The buttons at the back added a lovely visual feature and the plain front worked well with the necklace.

Tucking the top into the skirt was also a trick to draw one’s eyes away from the hips.

Kate-Spade-Netta-black-suede-shoes-1-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell The black suede boots that I wore were called Netta. They were perfect for adding height and super comfortable.

I love the gold metal detailing of the inner heel and the Kate Spade signature bows at the back.

Kate-Spade-Bekki-sweater-1-Little-Big-Bell My second outfit was not too dissimilar. We kept the style similar to what I felt comfortable with. This was the outfit I wore to the evening mini parties at Alt Summit.

We chose the Bekki sweater in a bright pink. I love wearing colours but I was not used to wearing such a bright hue. Surprisingly, it worked well when contrasted against the black Satin gathered skirt . I accessorised it with the same Day Tripper necklace and a fun pair of black and gold flats with the words Pop and Fizz.

Geraldine-Tan-in-Kate-Spade-outfit-photo-by-Izzy-Hudgins Here I am wearing the outfit, looking out from the balcony of the Grand America hotel.

Kate-Spade-shoes-pop-fizz-Little-Big-Bell Here’s a close up of my shoes and a glittery Kate Spade bag.

Kate-Spade-wellies-Little-Big-Bell I arrived a day before the conference started, so went to explore Park City, a town busy preparing for the annual Sundance film festival. Park City is also a ski resort, so snow was to be expected.

I was pleased to have brought along my Kate Spade wellington boots (top left). Again, I loved the gold detailing and bow at the back.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the post. This is my first venture into a bit of fashion blogging. I would love to hear what you think.

Wishing you a wonderful day ahead and I will be back with some fun interiors post.
