I have been a fan of Cath Kidston for many, many years. So when they got in touch and asked if I’d like to attend a press day for the launch of their new prints for next year, there was only going to be one possible answer. A most definite yes. So I headed off to the Big Smoke & managed to find my way to the Rook & Raven gallery, where the day was being held. I had a good look round and took plenty of pictures. Take a look!
I was very excited to see what they would have to offer and I’m not disappointed. I like the new prints. I think they stay true to what people expect from Cath Kidston, but they’re different enough to keep us all interested, and boy am I interested! I’ll take one of everything please!
Not only were there lots of lovely things to see, they also provided refreshments! (Love free food!) I have the most delicious tasting soup ever – A butternut squash and sage soup. Perfect for warming up, as it was bloomin’ freezing in London! I also received a goody bag, which included these gorgeous socks from the Safari range, a handy travel cup, which I plan to use asap and a lovely tote bag, also from the Safari range.
What do you think of the new prints? Which one is your favourite? I can’t decide between Tea Time, Spots & Budgies!
I don’t know about you, but I’m very pleased that autumn is on its way. My main reason? Jumpers. I love jumpers. They are my favourite thing to wear, cosy & comfy, they go with almost everything & they are a sign that it’s okay to stay in the warm! Here are a few jumpers that I’ve seen online recently. I would buy them all in an instant if I had the cash.
I think this jumper is so cute! You’re never too old to wear an owl jumper in my book.
People Tree :: £95
Blue is my favourite colour & I’ve always loved stars so this is a perfect jumper.
People Tree :: £125
I really like the colour & stitch in this cardigan. Think it would go perfectly with a preppy skirt, grey woolly tights & some brogues.
People Tree :: £145
I love the bird print trend at the moment & this jumper is no exception.
Fat Face :: £45
I really like the bright colours on this jumper. It looks really festive!
Boden :: £79
Is there anything more seasonal than fair isle? I think not!
Boden :: £79
I have given in and treated myself to the Boden Fair Isle jumper – how could I not?! (Plus, I used their 20% off code!) To be honest, I could pretty much buy the entire contents of the Boden catalogue! I know these jumpers are quite pricey, but when you think about the creation of the jumpers, from start to finish, it’s a pretty lengthy process with lots of people involved. It’s taking me ages to knit a jumper, and while I know these aren’t hand knitted, someone has made them so I don’t think they’re over priced – I just wish I had more money! Plus, if they’re looked after correctly, they’ll last for ages, providing you with lots & lots of cosiness!
