I'm wearing Kaliko to Britmums Live

A couple of weeks ago I had a rather exciting invitation. The PR for the Jacques Vert group offered to take me shopping and, with Britmums Live fast approaching, I knew that it would be the perfect occasion to select an outfit for.

The Jacques Vert group comprises a range of household name brands including Jacques Vert themselves, Kaliko, Planet, Precis Petite, Minuet Petite, Windsmoor, Eastex and Dash. We immediately decided that Planet and Kaliko would be the best ranges for me to try and hit the Debenhams Manchester concessions to see what would suit me.

I will admit to being unfamiliar with the brands in the Jacques Vert group and I wasn't completely convinced that I would find something that suited me. I was pleasantly surprised as I spotted items that drew my eye as soon as I walked into the Planet and Kaliko sections of the store. I was ably assisted by the wonderful staff who gave me their expert opinions during my epic trying on session and even suggested a few items that I would never have picked up for myself.

When I'd tried on what felt like a hundred dresses and separates I narrowed it down to two outfits, the Isla Day Dress and the Frida Print Skirt teamed with the True Blue Jersey Top I couldn't actually decide between the two so I left it to the Kaliko team to decide which of the two to send me. I was utterly delighted to open the resulting parcel and find the top and skirt and I will be wearing these on the Saturday of Britmums Live. This photo of the skirt really doesn't do it justice, it's beautiful and was the very first thing I spotted on my shopping trip.

Kaliko for Britmums Live

I'm going to be teaming the outfit with a pair of Lotus espadrille wedges from QVC or my trusty fitflops and I've also treated myself to a day dress to wear on the Friday. I'll have all of my bits in my much loved Mia Tui Steel Blue Minnie Amelie. I'm so looking forward to this weekend, meeting up with friends old and new and spending some child-free time with a lovely group of ladiies. I can't wait to wear my outfit!
