Ahhh! I am SO excited to finally be able to share the exciting news with you all! I have been working on this capsule collection for a few months now and it’s been hard to keep it from you guys!! Originally it was scheduled to be released in April/May but when Covid-19 hit we decided to hit pause on it because the whole word hit pause.
Well, fast forward a few months and it feel SO RIGHT! This capsule collection has been such a fun project to work on. I have always dreamed of doing something like this so when Zoe from Finding July reached out and asked if I would be interested I was all in! There are 5 pieces, one two piece set which is absolutely freaking adorable, and four dresses which are also just the absolute cutest. For real, I can’t decided which is my favourite!
While putting together this collection, my prairie roots were my biggest inspiration. From the mustard yellow, sage green, and oatmeal colours reflecting the crops my family grows, to the dresses being named after small towns throughout Saskatchewan, there are prairie influences found throughout each piece.
As I was selecting the pieces for this collection I had a few things that I kept in the back of my mind. In fact, these factors are in my mind as I’m doing any shopping:
1.) Versatile. This is so important to me. I try to only spend my money on things I know I will get a tonne of wear out of.
2.) Affordable. We all work hard for our money and I want to be respectful of that! All of these dress are under $100!
3.) Comfortable. I love dressing up but it is just as important to me that I am comfortable in what I’m wearing!
Ok, enough of me chatting… let’s get to the dresses! Oh, before we start for size reference I am 5’4″, I typically wear a size 25 or 26 in jeans depending on the amount of stretch, and a size 2 or 4 in dresses.
Although it’s hard to pick a favourite, this was the one that caught my attention first so I named it after my hometown, Raymore. This babydoll style dress has a feminine and flirty feel to it and because it is uber comfortable, it’s one that I reach for often. It comes in two colours mustard and blush. I’m wearing a size small. This dress is meant to have an oversized feel but because the fabric drapes beautifully it is still very flattering. The buttons are functional so if you are a breast feeding mama this dress makes life a whole lot easier for you!
The Haddington Checkered Babydoll Dress
This dress is VERY similar to The Ray Babydoll but has a few slight differences. The pattern is obviously different but the sleeve length is slightly shorter and doesn’t have an elastic, the fabric is a touch lighter, and the buttons are wooden! Again, very similar but slightly different. I absolutely love the pattern of this dress, it is subtle yet makes a bit of a statement.
The Kincaid Tunic
This is what I imagine to be the perfect mom-ing outfit… again, don’t hold me to this, the only kid I have has four furry paws but from what I have heard this would make a great mom uniform! It’s a great length, it hits me just above the knee. The buttons on this dress are also functioning which makes it easy to take on and off, again making it perfect for new mamas! The Kindcaid comes in three colours: sage, oatmeal, and black! I can’t wait to wear this teaching with a denim jacket over top to cover the spaghetti straps, or if you’re not into a denim jacket it could be layered with a white t shirt underneath!
I love a good midi dress and this is no exception. It is lightweight but don’t worry it’s not sheer and just like the rest of the dresses, the buttons are functioning! This dress can easily be dressed up with heels and some accessories for a summer wedding or shower but can also be thrown on over your bathing suit and worn barefoot down to the beach making it the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe!
The Maryfield Two Piece Set
The second I laid my eyes on this set I knew it had to be a part of the collection! It is just darling, honestly that is the best word to describe it! Whether you decide to wear it as a set or separately you’ll LOVE this! Anytime I wear this set I get tons of compliments and you will too!
And that’s all! I hope you guys love this collection as much as I do. Because this is our first collection together the quantities are limited so if there’s something you want make sure to grab it! Thank you so much for all the love and support with this new adventure- I honestly just freaking love you all SOO much!!!
