A stripey Kyoto sweater!

I am ALL about the sweaters right now since it is absolutely freezing here in London! I’ve had my eye on the Kyoto sweater for a little while as a potential staple knit pattern that could be an alternative style to my beloved Linden sweaters. Plus I was keen to try out something from the […]

The Deer & Doe Hoya blouse

Did you spend your summer seeing Hoya blouses all over your Instagram feed like I did? The simple mock wrapped blouse was released as part of Deer and Doe’s Botany collection earlier this year and seemed to be everywhere! Or maybe I just kept seeing photos of the same one… 😂 I was eager to […]
