There are a few garments in my wardrobe that I’d classify as wearable art, and this dress is one of them. Despite being a huge Tolkien nerd for more than 2 decades now, I’ve never felt particularly inclined to dress up as a hobbit or elf…until I put on this dress and was enveloped in it’s ethereal beauty.
My entire outfit is from Very.co.uk – Very has so many delightful sundresses that are just perfect for summer holidays or a daytrip to a picturesque market town like this. It was hard to pick just one but in the end, this darling retro print dress had my heart.
Whether it’s a subscription or a one off box, Craft Gin Club makes for a wonderful gift as there are so many different things to try out in every box. Everything comes packaged beautifully and securely, and there’s something for everyone.
If your social media feeds are heavy on the cottagecore aesthetic, you won’t get through the month of May without seeing at least a dozen photos and videos featuring these otherwordly patches of blue scattered across the forest floor. However, shooting or filming in bluebell woods requires a lot of care and attention, and here’s why.
I consider a puff sleeved white cotton dress to be a staple of a cottagecore wardrobe, and the frequency with which I wear this dress is proof enough! While I tend not to be too formulaic with wardrobe staples, I find that a floaty white cotton dress with puff sleeves forms a solid backbone on which multiple cottagecore outfits can be constructed.
Of all the things I’ve bought for myself this year, this coffee and cream gingham dress is the one thing that I never want to take off, and it’s easy to see why!
This post is all about celebrating the joys of a good outfit – or outfits! – and exploring an unexpected riot of daffodils on a spring evening. Snatching Simple Joys from the belly of a bustling life.
Here is something I’d been planning to do for years, and that’s using machine dye to give some of my old, damaged but still very loved clothes a new lease of life.
It was the close of a perfect summer’s day out in the countryside. I wore my new Benji jumpsuit that had been gifted to me by Ace & Jig and I was worried that the fabric might be a bit too thick for the sun.
I’m hoping for more magical, sun drenched days so I can break out all the floaty, dreamy sundresses this summer, even if it’s just for a socially distanced walk around the block. In times like these, it’s the little things that breathe meaning into our days.
Gingham and cherry blossoms are simply the perfect duo, aren’t they? I can’t think of any other print or fabric that immediately evokes summer.
Last week, I got the most beautiful Ace & Jig dress in the post and I’m just head over heels in love with it. This is the Faye dress from their SS19 collection.
