The Modern Day Mum
The superwomen, the teacher, the person that makes everything better, the MUM!
This March we wanted to treat one of many special mums to a Larsson & Jennings experience and find out what it's really like to be a modern-day mum.
We know managing your day can be tough at the best of time's, but when you've got a little one crawling around, it gets even tougher, so what better way to help first time mum Victoria than gifting her the perfect Mother's Day present; a watch.
We invited Victoria to our store in Covent Garden and this is how it went...
What do you love most about being a Mum?
I love seeing Amelia grow and learn new things every day. It's so exciting to see how much she is developing all the time and knowing that you are nurturing her into her future self is so fulfilling.
Describe your style in 3 words?
I would describe my style as; Simplistic, timeless and tailored
I think it fits well with L&J as a brand, as I would say L&J is very simplistic and stripped back, with timeless pieces that can be worn for years to come.
What 3 things do you always carry with you?
Sunglasses, phone and lots of baby snacks!
Choose an L&J watch for each of the following looks:
Work - Aurora Leather 38mm Black Charcoal(Classic, professional, smart)
Weekend - Sloan Cube Milanese in Rose Gold (Beautiful, elegant, fun, versatile)
Date Night - LJXII Norse Leather 34mm Gold Black (Perfect for date night, timeless, romantic)
Any tips for the modern day mum?
Cherish the time you have with your little one. Time goes by so quickly, so leave the housework for another day and treasure every moment - it will all still be there for you to go back to!
Get your baby into a routine as soon as possible. It helps so much when both you and your baby know what to expect from your day - particularly bedtime! Life is so busy, so I find having an order to my day really helps.
Has becoming a mum changed your style?
Becoming a mum hasn't changed my style in terms of what I wear, but my approach to getting ready certainly has. I no longer have endless amounts of time to get ready in the morning, so being able to have a small capsule wardrobe where I can pick my clothes out quickly saves time, along with a stripped back make up routine for speed!
Victoria selected her perfect Mother's Day gift; the Sloan Cube Milanese because the "combination of the pretty tone of Rose Gold and classic minimalist look make it a watch to suit every occasion and there's nothing I don't love about it!"
