Ditsy Tilly Dress. So close to Liberty of London. Just wonderful!
A few months ago my girls and I got giddy paging through a catalog from unknown (to us and most Americans, I think) British company, Joules.
My daughters, bed jumping over images of ditsy prints and appliqued tees, folded down pages of things that they loved. And I was excited that they were excited. It gets tough to find pieces that are a mix of classic and clever… girlish but not baby. Our go to pieces from Boden (the other British brand that my children live in), and many from the Nordstrom children’s department, have been, to this point, the ones that fill their closets.
So when Joules contacted me to ask if I’d create a wish list post for my readers, it didn’t take long to decide that this is a company I’d be happy to share. I love the brand’s take on modern children’s clothing, their sweet yet functional aesthetic. But I wasn’t yet sold on the women’s line until I had a chance to poke through the collection. What I found were some great basics that all women need in their closets. More specifically, their coat closets!
With the sun shining today on this second day of Spring I’m on the Internet shopping-hunt, building a wardrobe for my girls that’ll take them through the summer.
But for me, not in need of anything except a new fall jacket, and a winter puffer (I demonstrated such restraint this year), means I hit the jackpot with Joules. I’d absolutely wear any of their pieces from the Jackets, Coats and Parkas page!
As for their wellies? No one does better wellies than the Brits, and while, no… I don’t need a new pair, don’t fault me when you see me in the Larkdale during the next Springtime monsoon.
June Jump Suit. The ditsy print is on lots of great pieces throughout the collection. This jumpsuit makes me wish I was seven.
Candy Pink Pony Print. Such a good piece for any day of the week, and time of the year.
Mabel Quilted Jacket. Also in Navy, but when pink is an option my girls can’t say, “No.” Note the ditsy.
MAGGIE Short Sleeved Applique Top. As per the applique, Americans should eat more lemon curd. Deliciousness!
Flutter Frilled Top. Very Crew Cutesque, no?
Super soft Jodding Jeggings. My kids won’t wear anything but leggings. These are a good option.
Portia Jersey Jacket. Super for bigger girls. The embroidery is a sweet pink rabbit…girlies up the piece.
Fairhurst Coat. I’m over my Burberries. This one may be waiting in my closet for next Fall.
Landridge Quilted Coat. Have needed a coat like this for ages, but didn’t want Northface’s. Way less expensive option here, and the navy is perfect.
Poshwelly in pink. The Brits know how to do a welly.
MOLLY WELLY Molly Rain Boot
Larkdale Canvas Rain Boot. Probably my favorite!
