Wow ! What a beautiful sunny day it was when Sophie and I shot these a couple of weeks ago. It really truly felt like Spring and it made me realise how much I had forgotten what it was like after all these miserable cold months. I’ve not been leaving the flat a lot recently. Then of course, two days later it was -2 and snowing. But that little window of hope on this day I’ve not forgotten and it’s reminded me that the way I’m feeling and the way it is right now isn’t forever. Too deep for a Thursday? I’m clinging onto that hope anyway.
Right let’s talk about the dress shall we ? The patchwork trend is very much alive and well at the moment and I’ve seen it all over instagram recently (and I’ve been lusting after a lot of very expensive patchwork jackets) so I thought this dress was the easiest way to delve into this trend. But believe me I’ve loved patchwork for a very long time so I’m happy it’s getting a revival !
This particular dress is by sustainable woman owned brand Kristinit, and boy is it a good one. If dresses aren’t you thing, this patchwork print also comes in the from of a top and skirt , trousers and even a jacket! So whichever way you like you can get your patchwork fix. What’s also great about Kristinit is they employ woman owned collectives all over the world, and their items are preorder and custom made to eliminate any unnecessary waste. We love to see it.
The beautiful pink colours in the dress mean that it goes perfectly with my new fluffy pink handmade from new brand Loueo. If you follow me on instagram you’ll have seen me gushing over it ! I’m obsessed ! Who knew a fluffy pink bag could go with…well just about everything in my wardrobe !
This incredible bag comes in three different colours, black, beige and pink, and of course I had to go for the pink. Also to note: pink is set to become a BIG trend this Spring/Summer and a pink bag is a perfect way to add a cute pop of pink colour to your outfit. Overall a pretty amazing dress and bag, by two pretty amazing brands ! I can’t wait to wear this outfit on repeat when it gets (and stays) warmer. I’ve been compiling a pretty cute Spring wardrobe and I’m just desperate to wear it properly. To places other than Big Tesco.
