Personal Style with Katie Nelan

August 18, 2016

It is easy to spot Katie Nelan. She is funny and unknowingly makes the most hilarious comments about herself. Her presence is welcoming, matched with an infectious laugh and beautiful smile. She is the type of woman, you want to invite to all your parties. But not when she is awaiting the birth of her second child as she will often remind you that ‘nothing in her wardrobe fits anymore.


Quite hard to believe of course, as her style maintains an admirable yet effortless vibe. Often describing it as – throwing it all together and seeing what happens. Her outfits are a perfect mixture of functional laid-back pieces that are easily transformed from nine-to-five style. To glamorous evening attire with a simple switch of footwear – trainers to heels. And she remains confidently feminine in bohemian-inspired shirts matched with smart trousers.

As a mother to two year Joni and a production manager at ITV, Katie has worked on shows such as May The Best House Win, Weight Loss Ward and Countrywise. She currently looks after the staffing, scheduling and budgeting on You’ve Been Framed. This month we are honoured to take a peek into her inimitable closet and hope to steal some tips for our own ‘personal style.’


Must have beauty product:space“Soleil tan de Chanel. My best friend bought it me and it’s just the greatest bronzer. It makes you look awake and healthier even when you have only had a few hours sleep.”

Skincare Tip:space“Wear sunscreen on your face every day. I only started doing this recently, so my skin is already quite damaged. I wish I could go back and have a word with my 20-year-old self.”space

How would you describe your personal style and how does it change depending on occasion?space“I would describe my personal style as ‘thrown together’ and casual, as I am always in a rush nowadays. I am in trainers most of the time, although I do love getting dressed up for a night out with my husband or friends – when I am not pregnant.”


What would you wear to work on a normal day?space

Zara Denim shirt dress and Nike Run Roshe Trainers.

As an expecting mother, do you have any great maternity wear tips?spaceDon’t spend too much money on maternity clothes because after 9 months of wearing the same things you will never want to see them again. ASOS maternity range is great because they have maternity versions of a lot of their normal styles and it’s really well priced.spaceI noticed you are in extremely great shape. how you keep fit and healthy during pregnancy? spaceI love exercise, so I tried to carry on going to the gym and doing classes until I was about 30 weeks.spaceNow I just feel too massive and out of breath to do much. But I am still going to Antenatal Yoga when I can. It really helped me calm down and stop worrying during my first pregnancy. Health-wise, I would say, don’t stress about it too much. I try to eat well and take vitamins. But I also eat about 5 bars of chocolate a day.


Lastly, what do you wear in your downtime – at the weekend when you are just relaxing?

space

River Island top. ASOS maternity short dungarees. Nike Run Roshe trainers.
