Cath Kidston


On all of my back and forth trips to England the last few years, there have been many discoveries I've made that are completely English and such a lovely change of pace from life here in America. Some of these discoveries are as follows:

* Proper English tea
* The great, British pub
* The Inbetweeners (Great TV show...FYI)
* REAL Bangers & Mash
* Edwardian architecture 
* Castles (Oh, how I love the castles)
* Cath Kidston

Cath Kidston is a brand that creates the loveliest, vintage inspired, delightfully feminine and ever-so-English designs that are used to make a large range of fabrics, home decor,
clothing, accessories and much, much more. There will be a day when Cath Kidston is a household name in America, I am sure of it, but until that day comes, I have to stock up on the stuff each time I visit. 

On this last trip back, I splurged a little bit and got a few things that I have coveted for awhile. I love them. I mean, LOVE them - and I have a feeling some of you will too.


Vintage inspired, gray table cloth
The most adorable napkins





I purposely bought the table cloth and napkins in different patterns; they really compliment each other without being too matchy-matchy. 


This little pouch has been great in my purse. It currently houses some dental floss, Advil, Tums and a few tissues - you know, all of the essentials that women carry in their bags :)


My lovely husband caught me eying this laptop bag and then bought it for me after I had talked myself out of it. I'm absolutely in love with it.
 

I love how everything looks together on the table.

I was also happy to discover that the fabrics coordinate nicely with a yellow chair and striped pillow I already had in the dining room.
Though we are not yet lucky enough to have Cath Kidston stores readily available here in the US, she does have an American website that carries her entire line (found here). There is SO much more than what I have showed you here, and I highly recommend checking out the kids stuff, if you are with child(ren). Enjoy!

  1. Really cute- I like them better not matchy, matchy too. And that laptop bag is very you.

    I think it's cool that it's not available in the US yet- makes your finds even more special.

    Bangers and Mash sound so good. I'm hungwy.
