Off-Duty With Blue Marmalade

BlueMarmaladeShortsI first came across Blue Marmalade London last year, when founder (ex-Sweaty Betty) Helen White got in touch to tell me a little about her luxury loungewear brand… 
Back then she was curating a range of brands, all perfect for those off-duty moment and lounging at home, something which appeals massively to the homebird and freelancer types! (Um, yes, I count myself in both those categories!) Think silk pyjamas, soft jersey vests and comfy bralette tops from people like Eberjay and Princesse Tam Tam…

This spring sees an even more exciting step, with Helen launching her own Blue Marmalade London collection on the site, with her own brilliant designs. Trust me, this is a woman who knows what you want to wear when you want to kick back but still keep a modicum of femininity and style – she sent me a few pieces to try out and I’ve fallen in love with each and every one!

Let’s start with the slouchy v-neck navy jumper (a lambswool, cotton & cashmere blend) which also featured in this post from last week. I literally threw this over a pair of jeans the second I saw it and dashed out in it for a casual summery evening drinks. I have also been changing into it every day as soon as I get home. I love how it’s a little longer at the back, so comforting! Tbh, I’m not sure quite how I coped without it…

The sandwashed silk easy pants are so comfy with their tie waist and ideal for warmer climes. Weekend lounging or weekend city break, I actually think these will be perfect for travelling in – they have the perfect amount of relaxed chic about them. And the easy running shorts. I’m usually not much of a pattern girl these days, but shorts, which are always a bit flirty and fun are just the place for a sweet print when teamed with a white tee.

There are so many other gorgeously comfy pieces over on Blue Marmalade, so do go check the new collection out. You won’t be disappointed and I’m betting you’ll be wishing you had some of these pieces to see you through the long weekend…!
