March has arrived and we are longing for lighter days and fresh spring air.
The reason we love spring so much is it allows us to completely revamp our heavy wardrobe of chunky knits and earthy tones and brightens our days with softer fabrics and warm spring colours.
Spring is the time to break out of the cocoon we have been hibernating in for the last 6 months and shake off our old selves and start over.
We have some gorgeous new arrives and some amazing pieces returning again this season.
Beautiful crisp white & nude crochet pieces – prefect for garden parties and summer weddings.
The return of the two piece – Start those summer holiday essentials (because the outfits are just as important as the holiday, right?)
lets not also forget the perfect accessory
The weather will start to get a little warm which means sleeves will get shorter, this calls for arm candy!
We hope you are looking forward to lighter days and warmer nights as much as we are!
I think its safe to say we are avidly awaiting BBQ season with a cool glass of Pimms, Ed Sheeran serenading us and of course our greatest accessory – the girls!

St Tropez is, quite simply, the most famous resort in Europe – one of the iconic Bridget Bardot’s favourite places to holiday. St Tropez attracts the chicest of people, and is perfect place for any fashion lover to go!
Where to stay?
The Hotel Sezz Saint-Tropez inventively combines charm and design to praise the ever so precious feeling of getting away from it all. Elegance, refinement and tranquillity describe the hotel experience. The interior was designed by French designer, Christophe Pillet.
Where to eat & swim?
Le Club 55, is a popular spot amongst the celebrities and we can see why! Enjoy sunbathing on the beach, cocktail in hand, and then throw on your kaftan and head to the restaurant for some delicious lunch and refreshing glass of wine.
Chanel’s pop up boutique
The La Mistralée private mansion has re-opened its doors for Chanel’s summer pop-up boutique in Saint-Tropez and every fashionista has to go see it! A shopping experience like no other.
What to wear?
There is that French Riviera look, one that St Tropez famously sports. We recommend, shirt dresses, flowing caftans, floppy sun hats and gladiator sandals. If you can describe your outfit as chic, your good to so in St Tropez.
Shop your St Tropez outfit with us, we suggest the Long Lost Two Piece by day, and the Quinn Dress by night.
