Sunshine Colours and Slow Staycation Style
Just as the sun has come out here in the UK, people are returning from their holidays and the children are going back to school. But that doesn’t mean you can’t continue your staycation…
Our Sunny Staycation collection is carefully curated to put you in the holiday mood wherever you are. We’ve selected clothes, accessories and items for a relaxing, and perennially sunny vibe.
Introducing our Curated Collections
This is the first of our special curations of products, chosen from a range of external suppliers sharing our slow ethos.
The pieces in this collection use sustainable materials and are handcrafted by local artisans and/or designer makers. Many of the items are handmade in London and/or the UK.
Limited Edition and Vintage Clothing and Accessories
Our first grouping combines sunshine colours with arty effects. We’ve teamed up Bad Habits London’s washed tie-dye t-shirt with Klements silk satin Labrynth print Fleet Flares, and curiously cool and eco-friendly Palm Moroccan sneakers by Good News. These garments combine comfort and style, but the best news of all is that they are all consciously created to help save our planet from the polluting effects of fast fashion manufacturing practices.
Kaftans are having a moment and we love the candy-striped Creation Kaftan by A Perfect Nomad. Team this up with statement laser cut retro flower earrings with a tropical colourway, to keep the summer holiday feel alive. This also makes a perfect combo for lounging around the house, or garden, or meeting up with friends for outdoor drinks.
For something a little more formal, we suggest the fabulously floaty Dusk Cloud Dress in hand-dyed silk by Klements. Accessorize with Paradise Row’s burgundy leather Love Circle bag and tie-dye opal fringe low tops by Good News.
Or, for a more relaxed hippy feel, we’ve picked you some daisies. How about LF Markey’s Kingston dress with Lazy Oaf x Melissa Kick Off vegan daisy bloom shoes? I have a couple of pairs of these characterful sandals, and they’re as comfortable as they are fun to wear. We’ve also chosen some accessories from Etsy (a great place for vintage finds), including a 1950s necklace and earring set with daisy flowers, and some authentic dried daisy hair clips. And now it’s getting a little chilly in the evenings, a jacket may also come in handy. Check out Sideline’s reversible natural shearling Dream jacket - it really is a dream. Add an artily hand-painted vintage bag for maximum effect.
Slow Down and Relax
Ideally, spend as much time as possible outdoors whilst the sun is shining and there’s a chance to top up on vitamin D. And it’s getting dark a bit earlier now, so there’s no excuse not to go to bed on time and catch up on your beauty sleep either.
Wishing you curiously slow, sun infused days ahead, whatever the weather.
