Ahoy there! The lovely folk at Aspire Style have kindly invited us to take part in their latest Blogger Style Challenge. We were given the not-so-arduous task of choosing and styling a dress from their wonderful selection. As massive Emily and Fin fans, we couldn’t resist nabbing a couple of their newest fabulous prints. Aren’t they lovely? As regular readers will know, we do love to match our outfits to the local scenery, so we ventured on down to the colourful harbourside in search of the perfect shooting place.
We found the ideal location in the form of a cute boat trip office near to the SS. Great Britain. If you’ve ever been to Bristol, you will know that we are BIG on boat trips here. I (Victoria) even incorporated one into my wedding day! To celebrate this, I chose the glorious vintage inspired sailboat print Isobel Dress*, then went a bit potty for pastels with a pink 50’s cardigan from Boden* and matching pink brogues from New Look. Although Spring has officially sprung, it was a little windy around the water, so I accessorised sensibly with white woolly tights from UK Tights. My pink belt is from Primark, although it is no longer available – I’m afraid that ship has sailed.
Jo’s Jenny dress* is covered in such a super synchronised swimmer print that she was getting compliments all day long. We both completely fell in love with the flattering cut of the dress and the contrasting blue buttons. You’ll definitely be seeing us in more of the Jenny cuts, they are so beautiful – we are going to dive right in! Jo teamed her swimmers with a pop of metalic with silver flats from Topshop and vintage silver belt. Her fabulous flamingo cardigan is from Bryony and Co* and her polkadot tights are from…you guessed it, UK Tights. They go swimmingly well together indeed!
