It was hard to miss the launch of the new Disney x Cath Kidston collaboration a couple of weeks ago. I have to confess to being a little bit obsessed with their collaborations. As it is I’m a huge Disney fan and also very partial to Cath Kidson dresses. They may be well over my usual budget, but I always find a way! Having picked up two new dresses from the latest collection, I thought it would be fun to take pictures of all the dresses so far and put them all together.

Winnie The Pooh:

Disney x Cath Kidston Winnie the Pooh DressThe first offering from Disney x Cath Kidston was British favourite Winnie the Pooh. This is one of my favourite dresses, I really love the shape and fit of this one. They currently have a few other dresses in this shape including the lovely pets party dress, which I have and love. My only complaint with this dress was the length and I’ve noticed their recent dresses are a but longer. I loved the print from this collaboration, this will always be one of my favourite books, stories and Disney films. See how I styled it in my post from last year.

Mickey in London:

Disney x Cath Kidston Mickey in London DressGetting my hands on the dresses from this collection was so tricky, but eventually I got lucky and got both. I love the print of this dress so much and wore this all summer. Again the length is much shorter than I’d usually wear, but I just don’t care! I really love that Cath Kidston used their London print and kept this collaboration so British.

Minnie Mouse:

Disney x Cath Kidston Minnie Mouse DressThe spot print is such a Cath Kidston classic. I’ve mentioned before that I used to work at CK when it was a much smaller company about 13 years ago now. The spot print was as much a key pattern for them then as it is now. I love the simplicity of this dress design and it’s one I wore a lot last winter and will wear again this winter too. I like to put a top underneath this one and wear it like a pinafore dress, as I did in my post last year.

101 Dalmatians:

Disney x Cath Kidston 101 Dalmatians DressThis is one of my favourite Disney films, so I was really excited about this range. Although I love the print they chose for the dress I would have done anything for one in the town houses print, which in my opinion was just nicer. I know this dress was a bit unpopular due to the choice of fabric and although I would have preferred cotton, I didn’t mind it too much. For more detail, check out my blog post on this dress.

Tinker Bell:

Disney x Cath Kidston Tinker Bell Peter Pan DressThe first dress from the new Peter Pan, the Tinker Bell shirt dress collaboration is absolutely perfect for this time of year. I really like the shirt dress style which fastens with the cutest star shaped buttons. The print is so pretty and I love the colour. I’m looking forward to experimenting with this one over the coming months. I like the idea of different coloured tights and working into looks inspired by different eras. Watch this space!

Peter Pan in London:

Disney x Cath Kidston Peter Pan London DressThis dress is such a classic easy to wear piece. The print mixes the classic Disney characters with the popular Cath Kidston London Print. This is such an easy dress to wear and the fabric is a lovely and heavy, so it hangs really well. This is the sort of dress I wear all the time, as they’re so easy to throw on with a card and some flats for everyday.

I am so excited to know which Disney x Cath Kidston collaboration will  come next and how many more there will be. I really hope the next range keeps up with the amazing quality of the Peter Pan range. The great fabrics, lovely details and decent skirt lengths, really made this range stand out.

What did you think of the Disney x Cath Kidston ranges, have you tried any of the dresses? What did you think?

If you’ve been reading a while, you’ll know I’m a bit obsessed with the Disney and Cath Kidston collaborations. I’ve been collecting the dresses since the first Winnie the Pooh one came out last year. Before each new collaboration is announced I get really over excited and try to guess which it will be. So far we’ve had Winnie the Pooh, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, 101 Dalmatians and now Peter Pan. I’m already guessing what will be next, here’s hoping for Lady and The Tramp or Aristocats one day!

The Peter Pan collection launches next Thursday and Cath Kidston have just released their preview, so you can see everything that will be coming in. Realistically I can only choose a couple of things, but I thought I’d put together a Wishlist of all the stuff I love from the collection anyway.

Fashion: I’m starting with the most important one here! This is probably my favourite fashion range yet, I love the longer length on the dresses and the shirt dress is absolutely perfect for this time of year.

Tea Time: I am completely and utterly addicted to buying nice tea sets and pretty things for my kitchen. The Tinker Bell Posy print, is absolutely perfect for me and I really love the range which includes a tea cup and saucer, cereal bowl and mug. I also really like the apron, perfect for a spot of baking. I also like to take a hot drink out with me, so the travel cup would be super handy.

Accessories: Being Cath Kidston, there are obviously a lot of nice bags and accessories, including some cute make-up bags. It was hard to choose my Wishlist, but for me the tote bag would be really useful as it’s big enough to carry all my things. I always need nice notebooks, as I never stop writing lists and blogging ideas. I also just love the pom pom keyring and phone cover.

Although I’m definitely a summer girl at heart, I am also completely in love with Autumn. Obviously I’m not talking about the wet and dreary days or the longer nights. I have the classic romantic image of Autumn in my head. Fallings leaves, beautiful rich colours, mustard and plum coloured outfits and brand new boots!

I may not like the slightly colder chill in the air. But above all other seasons, Autumn is the one that inspires me the most. I’ve looked back on some of the Autumn photos I’ve shared not he blog over the years and found found lots of Autumn inspiration.

Looking at the colours outside our windows can be the perfect muse for planning your Autumn wardrobe. Seeing all the different colours on the trees can definitely help you pick out the perfect mix and match wardrobe.

I find that during Autumn I wear a lot more 60s and 70s inspired outfits. Vibrant Crimplenes and bold accessories, alongside 70s style maxis work so well for the season.

This retro autumn outfit which appeared on the blog a couple of years ago, is full of Autumn colours. I wore an original vintage dress, with some tights and boots from primark.

One of my most treasured Autumnal accessories is my original Enid collins handbag. I love the design and the colours, it one of the highlights of my bag collection.

When it comes to make-up, I usually go for classic reds or browns at this time of year and definitely wear fewer pink tones. Lady Danger by Mac (pictured) is the perfect orange toned red and works really well for a vintage look.

As for accessories, the world of vintage plastics will always be your friend during Autumn. There are so many beautiful tones of bakelite and celluloid jewellery. Not to mention cheap and cheerful plastic bangles. I love finding treasures at car boot sales and charity shops to accessories my outfits.

Hair flowers are another great accessory for vintage autumn outfits, this is one of my favourite ones. I usually pick these up on Etsy or at vintage fairs. Check out my Autumn Dress Wishlist from last week for another dose of Autumnal ideas.

I have big plans for lots of lovely Autumn posts and have been doing lots of planning, ready for when the kids go back to school. Watch this space for recipes, wish lists, hauls and outfit posts. Also please let me know if you have any requests.

What is your favourite thing about Autumn?

I always feel a bit sad at this time of year, when Autumn clothes start appearing in the shops. I don’t feel ready for summer to be over. But I also have a bit soft spot for Autumn colours and the idea of stomping through the leaves with the kids and I start to get a little excited.

This is my first of what I’m sure will become many Autumn wish lists. As it’s still August I’ve chosen transitional pieces, that work well now, but can be layered up as it starts to get cold. Add tights and cardigans and long sleeved tops for under sleeveless dresses and these will be perfect for the colder months as well.

A couple of months ago, I visited the Peacocks AW17 press day and I was blown away by how lovely all their stock was. I’ll be writing about that a little later in the year, but it did get me looking at their summer offering. At the moment I’m still really liking 70s influences and loving long flowing dresses and floral prints. I was kindly sent a few things from Peacocks to try and the first is this gorgeous orange maxi dress.

Retro 1970s Inspired Orange Maxi Dress from Peacocks. High Street.I’m a big fan of bright colours and this dress really stood out to me. I really liked the shape of the dress with it’s faux button down front and relaxed off the shoulder neckline. The dress actually fastens with a concealed zip at the back.

Retro 1970s Inspired Orange Maxi Dress from Peacocks. High Street.This was the perfect outfit for a morning walk in Richmond Park, with Rob and Lila. The dress is really comfortable to wear and the slit at the front makes it easy to walk and move around in. We actually met up with some friends afterwards for a game of football with the kids. I ran around for half an hour comfortably in it!

Retro 1970s Inspired Orange Maxi Dress from Peacocks. High Street.The dress is made from Polyester and is machine washable. I went for my usual size 14, which was perfect for me. Length wise I’m 5’6″ and the length was pretty good too.

Retro 1970s Inspired Orange Maxi Dress from Peacocks. High Street.My maxi dress is paired with a floral hair garland from H&M and a pair of gold Sol sandals from Hotter.

I’m looking forward to sharing some more of my outfits from Peacocks with you, as well as some more 70s inspired looks. I think it’s great to have fun and mix your eras and constantly find new things to wear. It’s also been fun putting a retro look together from a high street shop.

Find my dress on the Peacocks website it’s currently in the sale for just £15!
