Elsie & Arthur
The sun is shining and the air is getting warmer with each new day. Spring is here and summer is on it’s way! There is only one thing to do now, go shopping for some fabulous new outfits to parade around in this year! With a big vacation coming up in June, I was so excited to get a sneak peak at the Elsie & Arthur Spring/Summer Collection that launches today.
The first piece, I had my eye on was the Claire Tea Dress. It has a gorgeous yellow background detailed with garden florals making it perfect for those upcoming garden parties or to wear as a guest to a wedding or christening. The flattering tapered shape is slimming, and has a thin under layer with a zip up the back. At £30 it’s a great purchase for this season.
Next, I fell in love with this Lydia cardigan. I am big into anything with polka dots. The vibrant pink is sure to stand out and make you feel on trend. It’s made of silk (30%) and cotton (70%) which is a great mix for a light cardigan. The cotton allows it to be high quality and durable, but the silk means that it is incredibly soft on the skin. At £38 it’s a luxury buy, who wouldn’t want a silk/cotton blend cardigan? I love this!
Who doesn’t need a new Spring/Summer bag too. I have my eye on the Maytree bag which I am definitely ordering from the new collection as soon as possible. It comes in a pale blue background and a white background. I think I will go for pale blue to add more colour to my wardrobe. I am a huge fan of florals for my spring/summer wardrobe and this will pretty much go with anything. They are made of cotton canvas with a rope handle making it durable and chic. Best of all it’s only £15! Bargain!!! I might even buy in both colors. I can use it as a diaper bag for both my kids, for their swimming lessons, or when we go the park! And after the kids get older, a handbag for me! Win-win.
I saved my favourite for last. This stunning dark pink Colette dress is going to be a huge hit. I have a few BBQ’s lined up that I can already picture wearing this too with some bright coloured sandals. It’s 100% cotton and also comes in blue. I think at it’s price of £35 its perfect for a spring/summer dress. The beauty of this is it can be worn casual for the beach or fancy for a wedding. It has an elasticated waist at the back for a comfortable fit. This floral dress is sure to put a smile on your face and add colour to your wardrobe!
With sundresses starting at £24 and maxi dresses at £32, Elsie & Arthur is a great place to start your spring/summer wardrobe shopping!

Helen Porter says
I think my favorite is the very first dress its so pretty and reminds me of the summer I would love something like that! #sharewithme

Exactly my reason behind buying so many last year. I am definitely sticking to the trend. hahaha
Denise (mum on a mission for a better life) says
Beautiful scarf – I have not heard of this brand before so I will have to have a look. #sharewithme
Good luck to win!!
Ah Jenny, you’re clearly a ‘pink’ girl – I would expect nothing less from you! I really love the polka dot cardigan 🙂
hahahah I hadn’t noticed but I guess I really am. I love yellow and greys as well. Funny how I just picked those colors from the collection without thinking about it. You are so observant.
i like colourful pink dress, sorry wont be taking part in a competition as i have loads of scarf, but good luck to the winner)
Hahaha I have a million scarfs too. Thanks.
Never heard of these before but love all these bits! Especially the cardigan, soo pretty xx #sharewithme
Thanks I hadn’t either. Two college students just starting out so wanted to help support them in their new spring summer launch and spread the word for them. Lovely things.
I LOVE the tea dress.I have loads and loads. You will defo see me in one at BritMums! xxx
hahah I still don’t know what to wear to BritMums but you are right one of these might be on me as well!!! hahah we will be matching! lol 🙂
mel @mydaysni says
I really like the items you have picked out, but my favourite has got to be the cardigan! I am not perhaps the most fashionable person, I love a cardy for their practicality and simplicity, but mine tend to be plain. Perhaps I should splash out…. x
I am the same, I am horrible at putting outfits together. I love a good cardy that’s for sure!!!
Californian Mum in London says
I’ve never heard of this brand before. Cute dress.
I hadn’t either but very impressed. They are two college students just starting out so I wanted to help support them. The totes are amazing too. I can’t wait for mine to arrive for my vacation.
Kid GL loves says
Grace says – I LOVE clothes and I really like the last dress.
The Mothers have deleted Lucas’s comment as he should have been commenting about the post/clothes NOT at how pretty the ladies were!!!
hahahahah There is always room for Lucas’ comments relevant or not, nothing wrong with complimenting the ladies. Go Lucas!!! 😉
Wicked World of Lucas says

Not A Frumpy Mum says
Love the dress, and the bag. Perfect for summer hols. Off to take a look at the rest of the collection!
Nice one, hope you like it. It was new to me as well but looks lovely.
Caroline (BecomingaSAHM) says
Have to say I have never heard of Elsie & Arthur before but will keep an eye out for them now as those dresses in particular are gorgeous! I’m moving on to maternity wear now but I will check them out next year 🙂 xx #sharewithme
Yes do they are fantastic. I hadn’t either. I still have a list of things I want too. Oh I never bought maternity too expensive just because they are called maternity with a little extra elastic. What I did was buy one or two sizes bigger than my normal and wore those all through both pregnancies. hahaha Just a thought. Hope you still entered for the scarf competition. lol
Isn’t it great that summer dress season is finally here? I love the pink Colette dress!
Me too, finally finished my garden and now I am ready to sit in it with a dress on!!! get my tan on!!! 🙂
Never heard of this brand before but will be checking it out. Super cute! #Sharewithme

Kat Lucas says
I love the pieces, especially the floral dresses
I very seldom wear dresses – some nice tops and trousers, and perhaps the odd jacket would be more my style.
