As I spent my past week in the UK, I’ve been doing a lot of wandering around into shops that look interesting to me. I discovered two brands that I am absolutely in love with, and if it weren’t for my limited luggage space, I probably would have bought everything in these two stores. These two companies’ products embody my brand and style pretty well, so I thought I’d share them with you so you can look out for them the next time you’re in the UK 😉
First up is Cath Kidston! This brand started in West London in 1993 and they consider themselves the “home of modern vintage”. I can’t agree more! Their products have the loveliest prints on them that honestly brighten my day every time I browse through their products. I’m saddened by the fact that they have 0 stores in the U.S. but have quite a few shops all over the world otherwise. I’ve picked out a few of my favorite items (but honestly I want it all) to share with y’all!
Next up is Joules! Their window display actually caught my attention first because of the adorable raincoats. When I actually walked into the store, my jaw literally dropped at how cute everything was. Y’all, the amount of STRIPES and FLORALS was like they knew exactly what I wanted. It’s a great blend of preppy and feminine, which is just what I love. Their floral prints aren’t generic either – there’s something about their prints that are unique and bold.
Joules was founded in the fields of Great Britain in 1989, where they sold clothes at country fairs and equestrian events (explains the preppy style, no?). I love their focus on the hidden details, quality, and fun.
Unfortunately, Joules stores are only in the UK, but they do have a lot of them so I’m thinking I’ll see a lot more stores in the next couple of weeks. My favorite pieces:

So what do you all think? Aren’t these pieces from Cath Kidston and Joules absolutely adorable?
