Our pre-spring window tour

February 2018

I feel really lucky to have such a huge light and bright window in the shop that we can fill up with lovely displays. Our resident window designer extraordinaire Jo always does such an amazing job so in todays post and vlog, I wanted to give you a little tour and chat through the outfits and garments that are featured.

Ahead of a brand new spring display in March, this window has a classic blue theme with garments that are tried and tested as really easy to mix and match and wear everyday.

The first outfit I have to show you is the Liesl + Co Maritime Knit Top paired with the Pauline Alice Rosari Skirt. The Maritime knit top an ideal wardrobe basic with side vents and a facing at the neckline with top stitching. The Rosari skirt also come with lots of pocket options as well as a longer length but my favourite are the simple patch pockets.

The stripy fabric used for the sample sold out a while ago but we've got a few other great options. The rosari skirt works really well in denim with a bit of body as it helps to keep the a-line shape.

The second outfit is the Liesl + Co Gallery tunic in the longer length. It has a really loose style with a centre back pleat and centre front pleat extending from a simple placket. We are just waiting for a backorder of that pattern to arrive, but the Grainline Farrow dress has a similar silhouette.

We used a light weight denim to make the sample in the window but as it sold out a while ago, here are some other lovely light weight denim options. I love the chambray union with the multi coloured flecks in it!

The final outfit I have is a really classic pairing! The Grainline lark tee (boat neck, 3/4 sleeve version) and the Tilly and the Buttons Cleo dress. You can't really go wrong with this combo!

Both the exact fabrics we used are also sold out but we have amazing alternatives! Any of the denims I suggested for the Rosari skirt are also perfect for the cleo and for the lark, these stripy cotton loopbacks are lush and come in 3 different colour combos!

I hope you enjoyed the little tour of the shop and window! If there is anything else around the shop you'd like to see more of or in more detail let me know!
