Quite a while ago now (a shamefully long time actually), I went along to the Cath Kidston Autumn/Winter 2015 press show, where I saw a beautiful range of dresses and skirts in their distinctive style. Now I’m seeing the range pop up in their online shop and thought it would be a good time to pick a few of my favourites from the new collection and show you a few photos from the day.
I think anyone and everyone knows the Cath Kidston style by now but the brand does still keep its clothing on trend and current. Plus, it can’t just be me who gets excited and searches their website daily in the run up to the new season, can it?
I was lucky enough to be invited to the Cath Kidston SS15 press event just before Christmas and, of course, I happily went along. For a long time Cath Kidston has been a brand that I’ve loved and I have many a staple piece from past collections that I love. So it seems fitting that this week’s Wednesday wishlist celebrates my love for the brand.
This cloud print is everywhere lately and seems to be the signature style for Cath Kidston this season. When I went to the press event there was even a cloud print bike outside, welcoming us all inside. The shape on this dress is really flattering and would make anybody wearing it break into a smile I think. It’s not really a dress for wearing when feeling under the weather (no pun intended, honestly), is it? Although, what better excuse is there to buy it to cheer ourselves up during these gloomy, waiting-for-spring days?

I love everything about this next dress. The floral pattern, the red trim, the ric rac and the cute sleeves. Again, it seems that ric rac is a big part of the spring/summer collection and I can see why. It rings back to beautiful childhood dresses and adds a special something to outfits. I also adore the colours and can see myself wearing this constantly in the summer, with a pair of white socks and brogues.

Look at this beauty of a skirt! Isn’t it lovely? I remember seeing this at the event and making a mental note to purchase it when it came out. Again, this skirt keeps up with the ric rac theme and is basically made up of the colourful trim. At £85, it’s a little bit pricier than other skirts on the website, but as is the case with Cath Kidston clothes, I’m sure it’s long lasting and it’ll go with most things in your wardrobe, as there are just so many colours there! So price aside, it’s guaranteed to be a good buy.

It’s Wednesday, it’s midweek and we’re all feeling the effects of tiring ourselves out over the bank holiday weekend. In the spirit of cheering us all up, and since I often pore over shopping websites on my lunch hour, I thought I’d introduce my wishlist for the week. In amongst all the craziness of the past week, these are products that I’ve been dreaming of buying.
Firstly, who doesn’t love a good quality leather bag. This one from Brit Stitch is a keeper, that’s for sure. The colours are great, the size is perfect for day trips and I love the little heart.
I’m a sucker for any kind of brogue. I think I actually own a stupid amount of these shoes, but don’t yet have a two-tone pair. These Bertie Lilirose ones would be perfect for adding to my collection.
This Aubrey Rose skirt has been a favourite of mine for a little while now. It’s floral design is perfect for summer and for flaunting those tanned legs. Plus, it would be perfect for sunny day picnics.
Let me know what’s on your wishlist this week and whether you’d like to see more of this kind of content on the blog.
