With so many exciting products launching from all my favourite brands I couldn’t help but put together my top picks for May. The weather has been so changeable (hello scorching hot bank holiday – where did you come from?!) but all my picks are extremely versatile no matter what the great British weather throws at us.
- Fairfax and Favor – Imperial Explorer Boots, Sporting Fit!
Launched at Badminton earlier this month was the long awaited Imperial Explorer boots in, get this, Sporting Fit (hurrah our prayers have been answered!). Just when you thought the Imperial Explorer boots couldn’t get any better – they did! The boots come in two beautiful shades – oak and mahogany – tough choice! And they are designed to accommodate a wider calf so all the muscley legged girls, myself included, may rejoice and bow down to the Fairfax and Favor gods (and get our purses out).
2. Evemy and Evemy- Pluma Shawl
Evemy and Evemy have just launched their new Pluma shawl and it’s stunning (of course!). The game bird feathers are hand drawn and printed onto the super soft shawl, making it the perfect accessory for any outfit. The shawls are completely versatile and can be used in various different ways including as a statement piece on your handbag or perhaps a headscarf.
3. HiHo Silver – Twisted Sterling Silver Bangle
The wonderful HiHo Silver have been at it again with more gorgeous designs and exquisite collections. Being the magpie that I am, I was immediately drawn to the Twisted Sterling Silver Bangle. I have this thing about bangles, they go with everything and you can have as many or as little as you’d like – perfect. I am currently sporting the HiHo Silver Springy Bangle which is coming up to it’s fifth(!) year and I wear it every.single.day! Back to the Twisted Bangle, which is perfect for stacking or wearing on it’s own – take a look and don’t fall in love, I dare you!
They have also released some new additions for their Cherry Rollers (these also caught my magpie eyes – so sparkly!) including a collaboration with Fairfax and Favor.
4. Ariat – Fuse
Just about after I stopped swooning over their cowgirl collection (one day) I saw that Ariat had released trainers. Now I’m definitely not the sort of girl to get excited over trainers (too many memories of PE at school *shudder*) but if Ariat have made a trainer or the Fuse athletic shoe (fancy trainer) to give their proper name it must be good, right? I’ve heard good reports so far and they claim to ‘soothe and re-energise tired feet’, after a weekend in Blackpool sign me up!
5. Mackenzie and George – Red Pheasant Spear
Now this is seriously a work of art, the Red Pheasant Spear feather brooch made by Wendy Goode for Mackenzie and George is a spectacular addition to any hat or coat. The red running through the feather is perfect for spring/summer and matched with the wine felt hat is a combination to die for. This brand is getting bigger and better all the time, I just love how they’re making everyday items such as hats, even key rings so beautiful.
