(Dress: Rixo London, Espadrilles: Castaner, Bag: Tidy Street General Store)

A few months ago my friend Charlotte introduced me to a wonderful London based brand called Rixo, and I was all over their bold vintage prints, beautiful shapes and gorgeous crafted dresses faster than a new Supreme drop (so much so I think I screen grabbed/saved/shed small tears over their Amy dress)- before finally making an investment in this gorgeous piece recently (it's not Supreme, but it's definitely cool). With their ethos standing that the girls oversee the whole garment process (and collaborate with highly skilled factories)- it truly felt like making a purchase of something special- and the design, craft and skill are only a small fraction of what make this dress such a perfect spring wardrobe piece.

Anyway- having taken the day for a local lunch and some serious garden time, this dress made for the perfect daytime get up with worlds comfiest espadrilles and I know it would look equally gorgeous with heels in the summer for something a little more dressy too. Plus, having picked up this basket whilst in Brighton earlier this month (I promise it's more practical than it looks- I had a book and my huge camera tucked in)- it's quickly become one of my favourite looks (and since meeting Mary Bezza in it too, there's a chance it won't be coming off any time soon either)...

  18. I absolutely fell in love with this dress when you first mentioned it in one of your YouTube videos, and I'm falling in love all over again.. I've been trying to find a cheaper alternative ever since, but I haven't been successful so far *cry*
    You look absolutely gorgeous in it! X

  19. You always make me discover interesting new brands. This dress is lovely, so floaty! I'd love to support small independent brands more, and steer away from Zara and H&M - hopefully one day I'll be able to shop like that!
