It’s time for something you hardly ever see here on She and Hem. That’s right, not one, but BOTH of us wearing trousers. Shocking behaviour for a Wednesday I know. You may not have noticed the trousers though, due to those flipping excellent stripy shirts. We ordered these on the GANT website using the Click and Collect service, then made our merry way down to the Bristol store in Quakers Friars. Whilst we were there we caught up with the lovely team who took us through their current ladies collection, and you won’t be surprised to learn we are now both smitten with the gorgeous 70’s inspired Pansy Shift Dress seen above. I (Victoria) also love the magical monochrome Braid Print Shirt Dress!
We spent far longer in the store than planned after we discovered that you can help yourself to tea, coffee or wine whilst browsing. So we poured ourselves a drink, unwrapped our boxes of joy and popped them straight on. Jo loved her Striped Silk Shirt* so much, she went out for dinner in it that evening. Who can blame her, it’s slickly silky! I am weirdly precious over new things and have packed my Striped Boyfriend Shirt* away to wear on my honeymoon next month. I’m pretty excited about recreating that Scarlett Johansson scene at the Park Hyatt. Keep an eye on our Instagram to see how I get on!
