Would you look at that!? We have finally reached the last day of spring! That can only mean one thing, the summer months are about to start. I am certainly looking forward to warmer days filled with Pimm’s, flowy dresses, trips to the countryside and afternoons spent on the beach with a good book!
As we look back on May’s bestsellers, we can see that you guys have already caught the summer bug, with bumblebee themed designs, pastel hues and backpacks fit for bike rides hitting the top of the bestsellers list! So, let’s look back and see what you have been loving the most this spring…
Not just an office favourite but now a customer favourite too, the 'Dean' bi-fold wallet, has a classic design featuring 12 card slots and plenty of space for change and receipts. Its sleek design is both a stylish and practical way of keeping your coins safe and secure while you’re out and about.
We have had World Bee Day this month and to celebrate, we decided to donate £5 from every one of our bee-themed designs to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. Since we all love our bumbling bees so much, it is no surprise our ‘Candice’ earrings made the list! These beautiful drop earrings feature a sophisticated honeycomb design and an adorable bee with statement green cubic zirconia stones for dazzling eyes. I love ‘em!
We are paying by card for things a lot more than cash these days, and if, like me, you haven’t quite caught up with the mobile phone card payments yet, a purse like ‘Emely’ will become your bestie. Featuring two card slots on the front for your most used cards, they will always be ready for you! I can fit my vast amount of loyalty cards in the spacious interior and the beautiful blush pink adds a little colour to every shopping spree. Apparently, you agree making it a modest number 8 on our list!
A classic with a twist! The ‘Chatham’ handbag is one for those who love to stay organised, and we all know our customers love organisation. This pretty handbag features a huge amount of storage space and various pockets for all your essentials. I think the Cashmere Blue looks great paired with white denim or a pastel summer dress as a chic and spacious alternative to a backpack.
We must share the same great taste as I have my very own ‘Daisy’ backpack and I love it! The super spacious design fits not one, not two, but three bottles of wine in it… plus room for snacks (trust me, I know). So, for your next B.Y.O.B BBQ this summer, look no further than ‘Daisy’, she’ll have your back.
When I am not using it to carry multiple bottles of wine, this backpack is perfect for picnics, shopping trips, dog walks or running errands. The adjustable straps are easy to use, and the expandable sides are perfect for when you want to carry an extra layer just in case the clouds roll in. Perfect, perfect, perfect.
Looking for something a little more down to earth? The ‘Alessandra’ bag is as timeless as it gets. Part of the Pure Luxuries' Designer Collection, this classic handbag is inspired by vintage designs that have stood the test of time! The perfect addition to every wardrobe all year round, it is practical, understated and incredibly sophisticated.
It might be summer, but we all know how quickly the British weather can change from scorching hot to grey and cloudy, perhaps this is why our ‘Eskdale’ poncho has made the list this month. For when the cooler days hit or when the sun goes down after an evening of tipples on the patio, the ‘Eskdale’ is the ideal companion to keep that breeze away. In a delicate cream colour, it will keep you warm while looking fresh and summery.
Looks like you guys might have some holidays booked this summer! The ‘Piccadily’ travel wallet has been in high demand, and we can see why. Its sleek and chic design features an easy to organise, spacious compartment, lined with our famous natural and untreated 100% cotton lining.
So, whether you are travelling the globe or would simply like to keep your handbag a little tidier, the word on the street is the ‘Piccadily’ travel wallet is the chicest way to do so. You heard it here first.
Buzz buzz! Have you heard it is festival season? The festival essentials are glitter, beer and your phone to take a load of selfies! But while you are having the time of your life, it is important to ensure your phone is kept safe and secure.
The ‘Buzz’ cross body bag is compact enough to not get in the way of your well-rehearsed dance moves but spacious enough for your essentials. Whether you are planning on heading to the dancing fields or are looking for a cute and compact companion, you have been loving the dainty little ‘Buzz’ cross body!
Before I let you know what has taken the top spot this month, let me interrupt your reading with my fave… The ‘Torver’ crossbody bag! Its deceivingly spacious yet compact design is great for carrying your essentials around from day to night. Inspired by classic vintage satchels and the stunning Lake District in the North of England, it combines practicality with timeless style.
In a versatile navy blue, it can be teamed up with your favourite floral dresses and denim, so, whether you are taking it along for a summer stroll or for a well-deserved afternoon in the beer gardens, it is the ideal summer companion.
If you like this bag as much as I do, I have a surprise for you! Use the code Rachael15 to get 15% off!
The ‘Mist’ handbag is the perfect choice for those looking for a bag that isn’t too big, isn’t too small, but is juuussst right. Its lovely size is deceiving, with its spacious interior, which I am sure you could fit a bottle of gin or two in.
A stunning addition to every summer wardrobe, this handy bag will become a staple over the coming months and has already won the hearts of our Pure Luxuries London Customers, taking the top spot on our bestsellers list!
