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?
It’s been a while since I did one of these, hasn’t it? Not to worry though. This week I’ve been on a hunt for summer clothes and I found myself on the Seasalt website, thanks to longtime fave dressmaker Isabel Knowles. Seasalt is a brand local to Cornwall and was started in Penzance, where there’s still a shop, in 1981. Many of the Seasalt garments are certified organic by the Soil Association and there is even a range of locally made products too. I love discovering brands that really care about the ethos of their company and I’m sure that I’ll be buying a lot from Seasalt in the future.
Trenython jumper, £55, Seasalt
Starting with the Trenython jumper, at £55 this one is a little pricey for any old top but has the cutest little boat print on it. Who doesn’t love boats on their clothes? Not me, that’s for sure. This one is perfect for covering up after a day at the beach or for those chillier evening walks. Channelling the Cornish coast, this top will be making its way to my basket shortly.
Rosina dress, £65, Seasalt
Stripes ahoy for my next pick, the Rosina dress. I’m reminded a little of Cath Kidston, in both colour and style, with this dress and I love the strong print too. Plus, stripes are my staple pattern of choice at the moment. I can imagine wearing this dress to all those summer parties I’ll be invited to (yeah right!).
Lookout crops, £55, Seasalt
Lastly, these Lookout crops come in two colours, but this vibrant floral print is the best by far. Team with a white tee for the ultimate outfit to relax by the beach in. Add in a pair of white converse, and the trousers will give a pop of colour to any outfit.
Have you ever bought anything from Seasalt before? Are you a fan of their ethos? I’ll definitely be buying from the brand soon.
