Linen overalls

charlk linen overalls

Well, that’s my summer wardrobe well and truly sorted (nearly…).  These 100% linen overalls/dungarees arrived this week and I am in LOVE.  Bizarrely, they seem to work on nearly all shapes and sizes thanks to the culotte style leg and shorter length.  I popped a pair on to try for size and haven’t taken them off since.  Available in sizes S/M and M/L in black, silver grey and navy blue at the moment.  We have taken the liberty to order more stock in more colours which are due for delivery in early June.  £75.00 (great quality linen and made in the UK).  Dress these up or down by ringing the changes with your footwear and an assortment of tops.  Easy to wear with a floaty blouse or a t-shirt.  They also look particularly good with the CARA espadrilles with their brightly coloured ribbons.

In the window this week


Cotton embroidered blouses are featured in our window this week.  100% cotton in a range of colours as shown.  A loose, airy fit and ideal to wear tucked into denim or loose over denim shorts and sandals.  £75.00.  Available in sizes S/M or M/L – they are a generous fit.

More goodies

toscana pulseras bracelets

Fresh in from Spain.  Very pretty little bracelets which are perfect for the summer.  Layer up with others and add a pop of colour with the tassel detail.  An ideal fit as you can fix to fit your wrist thanks to the chain closure.  £15.00.  Matching necklaces also available at £25.00

Pop in for a sniff…

chalk diffusers

We stopped selling candles because they are EVERYWHERE.  However we couldn’t resist these beautifully scented diffusers.  Wonderful fresh scents and reasonably priced at £12 .00 and £17.00. They’ll last a bit longer than a candle too and much safer.

Scents available:  Linen, Watermint, Bamboo & Olive and Lime & Herb.  I absolutely love all of them and would be extremely happy to receive one as a gift.  Made in the UK.

Arriving any day now…


We LOVED this embroidered blouse when we came across it a trade show in Paris last year.  This style is available in plain white with pink embroidery, green embroidery and blue embroidery.  if memory serves me correctly, they are sized S/M and M/L and should cost in the region of £75.00.

Back in stock….because you asked us


I can quite hardly believe how many of these we’ve sold since introducing them last year and you still want more of them.  That’s just fine by us, of course.  Here’s a few of the colours in stock at the moment but there are more colours out of shot including pale grey, hot pink etc.  £10.00.  Complete with shoulder strap and wrist strap.

Beautiful bags, beautiful hats


These handcrafted pieces are a bit pricer than items we usually sell.  That’s because they are really rather special and you can be sure you won’t bump into anyone else with the same thing.  Just check out that scalloped edge.  Soft leather handles.  £65.00

The hats aren’t too bad either….£59.00 in two sizes to fit most.  Gold, green/gold or pink/gold trim.

Such a lovely piece

yaya print jumpsuit grey

Annabel in the doorway modelling the new jumpsuit from YAYA.  A smokey dark grey with a subtle print, it’s a very easy shape in a shorter leg for summer.  She’s wearing a size 36 and the jumpsuit is in stock in sizes 36-42.  We sold the size 34 straight away but have managed to get our mitts on two more pieces in this size.  Why not wear this with a black leather jacket as well?  You could also layer up with a long sleeve t-shirt and trainers where it gets cooler again.  £79.95.

ps: the beautiful raffia clutch is from Madagascar and also available with a vibrant pink or grey trim across the front.  £35.00

Loose linen trousers are GO

yaya linen paperbag trousers taupe and black

Looking for a loose linen pair of trousers?  Here you go.  Just arrived in taupe and dark steel grey.  Roll them up to get the desired length and tie the waist to accentuate as required.  Or simply wear with a loose top, whatever works for you.  Now in stock £79.95 in sizes36-44, just one pair in each size.  The linen on these trousers is not seethrough or lightweight so they’re a good option for a dressier event or for work.

Back in stock in a new colourway


We sold out of this piece very quickly but you may be pleased to know we’ve managed to get our mitts on a few more in a different colourway? £59.95.  the new colour is white with a grey stripe.  Very nice.  Limited stock in a sizes 34-44. Feels like soft cheesecloth fabric, fabulous!
