There needs to be a word for the emotion you feel, when you walk into Cath Kidston and spot yet another dress you just can’t live without! This happens to me way more often than it should! I have a weakness for dresses anyway. They are a hobby and an obsession, as well as just being things to wear. My dresses are a collection and the number of Cath Kidston ones I own is always growing. The latest addition is the truly gorgeous Park View dress.
I first spotted this dress in the Covent Garden store, it was love at first sight. Unfortunately I couldn’t afford it at the time, but I didn’t forget about it! The dress features some of my favourite places in London, it makes me feel happy and nostalgic. The print is just beautiful. It features sketches of iconic views in the city including St Pauls and Kew Gardens. Along with lovely floral details. The colours are so lovely and bright. I also love the shape of this dress, the V neck is super flattering and the cap leaves are very comfortable.
A couple of weeks ago I spotted the dress in the sale and just had to make it mine. I am so glad I did, as I’ll be enjoying this for years and every time I see it, it puts big smile on my face. I wore it recently for a trip to Ham House, one of my favourite places. I think the beautiful dress and beautiful location worked wonderfully together.
I teamed the dress with my favourite denim jacket. This came from peacocks last year, at the moment I’m wearing it with everything. A denim jacket is perfect for this time of year when the weather isn’t quite warm enough to go without. I also like how a denim jacket makes a pretty dress look a little more casual. Perfect for a chilled out look when I’m out doing stuff with the kids. I added a rather dressy vintage necklace, because I think it goes well with the dress and it’s one of my favourite pieces of jewellery. I also wore my Clarks brogues, which I’m really loving at the moment.
I have a pin on my jacket, to pay homage to my all time favourite Disney film and character. The Beast! I absolutely love him and was so happy when I spotted this pin in Primark recently. It’s part of a set of Beauty and the Beast pins and my lovely mum bought them for me.
I usually don’t spend a lot on clothes, I love finding bargains and wearing vintage pieces, so Cath Kidston dresses are top of my budget, but worth every penny. They last forever, wash well and most of all they are beautiful. The print on this one, is up there with my all time favourite Cath Kidston prints. I wish they had done a few more things in this print as it is absolutely stunning and my favourite London print from CK so far.
The Park View dress is currently reduced from £75 to £55 and is available on the Cath Kidston website.
