Friday Fashion Bites | Summer Sun Dresses & Shoes To Go With!

Alberay dress, Ganni boots, Birkenstock Arizona, Solios watch, Essen x Linden Cook Dresses are fully on the Spring/Summer agenda and we’re being spoilt for choice! Sellout collections from H&M with their new Meadows designs and M&S x Ghost have gone down a treat but highstreet aside…

Sustainable Summer Dresses

There are so many gorgeous small brands with a focus on sustainable manufacturing – turn to Hesper Fox for stunning linen design, Beaumont Organic for beautiful organic fabrics and Johanna Sands for handmade limited edition and one-off pieces.

I’ve also got my eye on Tallulah & Hope for glamorous summer wear and Albaray  (the sunflower midi dress pictured above) is a brand I’m seeing all over Instagram, sustainably made and at a good price, so definitely one to check out.

Just Launched Today…

And launching today is a brand new collection – 70s inspired dresses with frills, balloon sleeves and big collars, I am loving it! – designed by Minkie London for Percy Langley, an east London retail platform bringing together their favourite independent British brands. Pictured below and see the full collection here.

When it comes to shoes and dresses, there are options! Forever a mad Birkenstock fan, I cannot take my eyes off this beautiful new khaki suede Arizona over at Toast, and never one to pass over a new perfect black ankle boot, I’ve also fallen hard for this chunky Ganni pair – both practical and comfortable plus the perfect contrasting match for a pretty dress.

And Earth Day…

We spent yesterday afternoon preparing our clover and wildflower lawn in support of Earth Day… great fun! Also marking the day is this brilliant solar watch from Solios which operates with a solar cell battery – you recharge it with natural or artificial light and its power cell lasts six months, so clever… !

I’m also loving a new collaboration from Australian-based brands Linden Cook and Essen The Label – both offering made-to-order pieces to reduce waste and environmental impact – combining Essen’s elegant minimalist Foundation Flat shoe with a Linden Cook anklet chain together making for a really beautiful piece – see the collection here.

In Other News…

I’ve finally found the perfect mini sleeper hoops on Etsy which are tiny enough to leave in overnight, I wear them with a Matthew Calvin tiny stud

Have a lovely weekend all and take care til next time!
