There’s a 20% discount code on new season Baukjen with BG20SS if anything catches your eye!
Helloooo and how are you all? Whilst I accept it may be a little premature to call this post “Baukjen in the Spring” (I mean, has anyone actually seen any snow yet – don’t we need that first?!) we all know that fashion is a little ahead of the weather and in fairness, the bulbs are starting to pop through.
I am so delighted, and feel so privileged, to have been asked by Baukjen to collaborate with them again this spring and in this post, I’m sharing with you the two pieces that I chose from Baukjen’s January collection.
As you might imagine, it was a really tricky decision to know what to choose to share with you all. There are so many gorgeous pieces but cost per wear, versatility and practicality are always key in my decision making process and whilst everything ticks all of these boxes, my lifestyle, shape and personal preferences lend themselves to some pieces in particular. I always love the Baukjen fabrics, as well as the cut and the fit. Their clothes are premium quality, yet they still feel as if they are made to be worn, and enjoyed, every day.
This was the first piece that I chose for this month’s pick. It’s the Nyla knit (£90) which I really loved wearing at the weekend. It felt so much fresher and lighter than my heavier, darker, winter knits and the addition of the blouse underneath made it feel slightly more elevated from the every day. It’s also good to mix old and new together. When I first saw this knit it reminded me of Cowes week meets Wimbledon all at the same time – but then the blouse gives it a different feel altogether.
Although I’ve styled the Nyla with boyfriend jeans, I also like the idea of it with the Baukjen Gail Jeans which this season come in washed indigo and dark khaki. I had them in white last year and wore them soooo much.
The colour of this Cosette dress below (£119) is stunning. Emerald is such a flattering colour on so many skin tones. Surprisingly, given its versatility, I’ve often found it difficult to track down, so I’m pleased to see Baukjen embracing it. The dress is made from Baukjen’s premium jersey and the combination of the pussy bow, the bishop sleeves and the stitched pleats makes it really elegant. I love how the Baukjen site uses symbols to denote whether a garment meets certain criteria pertaining to sustainability. This dress meets both the “low mileage” and “ethically made” criteria and it’s great to see such transparency in a brand.
Luckily, Baukjen have quite a few pieces in this beautiful jewelled emerald colour. The Maggie Turtleneck Jumper is a gorgeous fisherman’s rib knit, with a relaxed fit and high neck. It looks great with jeans and trousers but with a bloggers’ tuck (f you fancy it!) it works equally well with a skirt.
The Emma striped top, which is made from 100% organic biodegradable cotton, has a lovely relaxed fit and a flattering boat neck. A Breton top is always such a fabulous early spring update and if you’re after something slightly different from the classic blue and white combination, this is a great option.
Much as I loved the Cosette dress, I wasn’t quite sure that I would get as much wear out of it as the Abigail shirt dress (£149) but it was a close contender! The Abigail shirt dress is made from Baukjen’s renowned premium jersey, which is 95% viscose and 5% elastane. It makes for such a comfortable fit and I barely took it off last week, styling it alternately with boots, a red belt and a fur coat. It’s now having a well earned wash but I can’t wait to wear it again. If it gets chillier again I shall layer a black fitted poloneck underneath and then when I head to some sun in February, I shall take it there with me too and wear it with white trainers. It’s the ultimate, versatile, dress!
This is the “easiest” of the looks that I opted for last week – simply a dress and some chunky ankle boots. I’m such a fan of low maintenance and comfortable, yet stylish, dressing and this dress ticks so many of those boxes for me.
Oooh and before I forget, I have a code for you all. There’s 20% off this season at Baukjen with the code BG20SS so don’t forget to use it if there’s anything that catches your eye!
Have a lovely week and I’ll see you again soon.
