A couple of weekends ago I had the pleasure of spending a day with Hush, being pampered, playing dress up and striking a pose in front of the camera (the fruits of which you can see above). I'd been familiar with the brand as I'd written about them a lot in my first job a few years ago, when they only did PJs and loungewear. Exactly a decade after they first launched (the current collection celebrates the brand's 10th anniversary), Hush's design portfolio has expanded to include cosy-cool ready-to-wear, from silk blouses to skinny cords that I'd happily wear outside and in.
Don't believe me? Take a look at the seriously cool lookbook, proof that the brand is taking a fresh new direction and designing to appeal to urbanites like yours truly and not just yummy mummies. I've spotlighted some of my favourite looks below.
My shoot day companions? Fellow bloggers Emily, Teresa, Lulabelle and Beth. We all have different styles and it was fun to see who picked what, and exactly how versatile the new collection is. I opted for two looks - a slouchy sweater dress, beanie and my favourite wedged boots, and the rather festive red sweater and white cords (a great alternative to my old faithful white jeans) - all finished with a red lip, natch (this one's Russian Red by MAC).
I leave you with some behind-the-scenes snaps via my Instagram. Thanks Team Hush for the most wonderful day!
