Maybe it was something to do with the sea air in Falmouth, but I was inspired to check out the sale rails in Seasalt when I holidayed there earlier this month.
Seasalt started in 1981, and is well known for producing practicable and pretty items inspired by seaside living. However, until now I have never purchased anything from them – their items are very well made, with some lovely little extra details but they’re not cheap.
They are made from 100% organic cotton, and it’s incredibly soft. The fabric is a lot thicker than most striped t-shirts you will find on the high street – which I hope means they will keep me cosy in the winter.
I don’t think you can ever have too many stripes in your wardrobe! The colours go great with lighter denim, and work well on grey summer days.
This dress was a truly unexpected find. It is likely to become my new favourite dress. Called the Lottie Dress, it has a vintage feel to it, with a lovely teal pattern and buttons all the way down the front. It’s 100% cotton, which means it has no stretch to it so you have to rely on it fitting perfectly.
My final find was this adorable (not a word I often use) cardigan. This was a sample item from their sale shop. I love how the buttons match the colours, I’m looking forwards to wearing this now that autumn is approaching. I also love their Matilda cardigan.
It was a successful week of sale shopping (with a little beach time too!), and I will be keeping an eye on Seasalt’s sale page for some more lovely bargains in the future.
