In April you may remember we featured a couple of gorgeous dresses from Carousel, a brand we have become big fans of since we became aware of them last year. Luckily for us, they have just released a new collection which we are both completely smitten with. We wanted a really special background to shoot these pieces, so we braved the temperamental English weather, jumped into the She and Hem party bus, and zipped over to Tyntesfield in North Somerset and became one with the beautiful blooms. If you haven’t been to Tyntesfield and are ever in the area, do pop by!
I (Victoria) am completely in love with the Olivia Boat Dress. The colour is quite an unusual red/orange, but it’s absolutely stunning and is surprisingly versatile! I’ve not worn many full length sleeve dresses, but I’m definitely going to start, as this felt like such a nice alternative style. It’s possibly a little shorter than I would usually go for, but I feel that if I team it with flats or boots, I won’t scare too many people with my whiter than white legs! For this post I chose my current faves, the Keira Boots from Boden, which are currently half price. My sunglasses are these cat eye beauties from ASOS.
We are both obviously feeling shirt dresses at the moment. Jo’s dreamy Lucille Dress is a must purchase for any vintage fan. The 3/4 length sleeves and pleated skirt create such a flattering silhouette and would help take the dress from day to night time. The pattern is the sweetest and the colours really pop IRL! Pretty impressive right? Jo accessorised this floral number with tan boots from New Look (similar here) and went all matchy matchy with a ravishing red belt from ASOS and Moschino sunglasses combo from TK Maxx. See you for the next collection Carousel!
