Winter Whites: Faux Pas or Fashion Forward?

As many of you may know, we just welcomed our daughter Honor to the world last week (follow me on Insta to see the journey)! While things will slow down a bit here on Front Roe for a few weeks while I take maternity leave, you can still look forward to a few fashion, beauty and lifestyle pieces that we shot prior to her arrival – including this look, which is making me miss my bump already! We’ve all heard the saying “no white after Labor Day”, but breaking the rules when it comes to fashion isn’t necessarily the worst thing. In fact, it can set you apart from the crowd in a stylish way. While this time of year is usually known for much darker tones – I love incorporating bright white in to my Winter wardrobe. Read on to see how I suit up for the season with this crisp white blazer.

LA doesn’t usually provide traditional winter weather, so I love integrating unexpected items into my winter outfit arsenal that take advantage of this fact – like a leg-baring midi skirt or lightweight blazer – things you could definitely not get away with in London at this time of year. For this look, I went for white pieces on top, paired with one of my all-time favorite colors for winter: emerald green. I’m obsessed with the recent resurgence of oversized blazers too. This blazer by Theory is so sharply tailored, and I love how versatile it is for any season (think high-waisted jeans and flat sandals for Summer). The leather skirt adds to the polished feel of the look, which ends up being great for anything from a business meeting, to a dinner date. My styling tip? Make this prim and proper look a touch sexier by wearing a sultry, smokey eye, and statement earrings.

  • Does anyone else own a scrapbook?! 📚🤣If you don't necessarily consider yourself to be an 'artistic' person but still enjoy getting creative, you've got to try scrapbooking! I've been doing it ever since I was young (and even kept a wedding inspo moodboard secret from Mackenzie for a few years before we got engaged, lol) - and it's such a fun, easy way to express yourself. See how to make your own at the link in my bio

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
I want to dedicate this post to one of my dearest friends, who became a Mummy to premature surrogate twins this year, only to tragically lose them a few hours later, as she held them in her arms. My friend had been through years of trying for a baby through IVF, and finally - after years of hope and patience - we all felt her and her husband’s dream of becoming parents was about to come true.
That heart-breaking day also happened to be the date Honor was born, so the poignancy was all the sharper. I still remember the moment I learned the news. My own mum was with me, and we wept silently, hugging. 
I fully expected my friend to avoid Mackenzie and I for a while, to deal with her grief. Surely being around a newborn would just be too much. But testament to her angelic, brave character, she asked to come over. I’ll never forget the warmth and love in her eyes as she held Honor tight. She said she was full of hope. She said that the twins would be watching over, helping and guiding them on their continued journey to have a baby. 
You’d think that would be enough to focus on, but no. Instead, this wonderful couple decided to set up @pompomsandstardust , a charity not only raising money to help other people have surrogate children, but one that offers crucial (and lacking) advice and support to the ‘IP’s’ (intended parents), along their journey. 
If you or your loved ones have been through a difficult time conceiving, my heart goes out to you- I wish you strength, perseverance- and please feel free to share your story below.
The charity website will be up soon with more information, but for now follow @pompomsandstardust 💫
  • I don’t usually post throwbacks, but 1. my face ain’t cute right now after waaaay too little sleep! And 2. I just found this pic from the moment we arrived on honeymoon. I stepped out onto our balcony in Positano and took a deep breath and wow - what a view! Take me back to Italy!
  • Baywatch vibes for Friday afternoon by the pool! I’m obsessed with this @calzedonia swimsuit, check my stories to swipe up and shop it in time for Summer! #italianbeachwear #calzedonia #ad
