Versatile

We recognise the need for clothes that feel great and are versatile enough
to suit any occasion. We love when you can throw on an outfit and go
anywhere with confidence and ease. We want to make it easier for women
to buy well and buy less. Team our linen shirt with a bikini on the
beach or wear with shorts or jeans in the city.

How do you spend your time at home?

Between working, looking after our two year old, cooking, cleaning and finding some time for ourselves! When those precious minutes come and I'm all alone I'll be listening to Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth which I find truly soothing.

How do you spend your time at home?

I've been baking and doing online yoga classes - both new discoveries! With no travel time to and from the office - I've found the time to actually do some exercise once my baby is in bed. It's helping me to get into a new routine and I'm taking all the positive I can during this worrying time.

How do you spend your time at home?

I have been luck enough to relocate back to my parents house for this time. So my isolation has been spent cooking, taking my dog Charlie out for walks and making the most of the Scottish weather!

Between working, looking after our two year old, cooking, cleaning and finding some time for ourselves! When those precious minutes come and I'm all alone I'll be listening to Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth which I find truly soothing.I love to do yoga to get the endorphins going and meditation to reset. At bed time I'm currently reading 'Where The Crawdads Sing' by Delia Owens. I also make sure I sleep with my silk eye mask to not get woken up by the light in the morning!

How do you spend your time at home?

After switching off from work for the day, I find going for a 20-30 minute walk with my husband helps clear my head and re-charge for the evening which entails cooking a nutritional Indian meal for us. Getting some fresh air and eating well is super important for us whilst at home during these times.

How do you spend your time at home?

I have taken up embroidery to be more creative to try and reduce my screen time on my phone, tv and laptop. I have also started reading more - my current favourite book is "The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life' by Albert Liebermann and Hector Garcia. I'm also making sure that I keep active and trying to exercise at least once everyday.

How do you spend your time at home?

I keep busy with a mix of listening to podcasts, watching new shows and reading (currently reading 'Three Women' by Lisa Taddeo and highly recommend it). I keep fit by going on a 30 minute daily walk and doing online pilates classes every morning.

Georgia Armstrong, Wholesale Assistant

How do you spend your time at home?

I'm focusing on rebalancing myself, having been a city girl all my life, part of me enjoys this stillness. I'm reading, baking, organising my apartment and donating anything I don't use or wear, all things I don't usually have time to do.

Your swimwear can be washed on a gentle wash in the machine, but with a mild detergent. To protect the colour pieces should be turned inside out and not washed with other fabrics.

Do Not Tumble Dry

 Do not tumble dry your swim, but leave to air dry. A cool iron with a cloth over the pieces can be used if necessary.
