finding independents!

If there is one thing I love about Instagram it's that it exposes you to lots of lovely brands and boutiques (be that online or on the High Street) that you otherwise might not be aware of. There are many little treasures just waiting to be found if you are looking for something a little different from what's on offer from some of the retail giants. I do love that saying "every time you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance!" The lucky people of Kingsclere, Hampshire are lucky enough to have access to this gorgeous little store No.1 George Street, thankfully they also have an website where you can peruse a bit of fashion, some lovely accessories as well as gifts and homeware. Fashion first! I've styled up a couple of pieces I chose - which was pretty tough to try and reign myself in as there are so many tempting items. Alas, you can never go wrong with a variation on a classic, so I went with a crew neck denim jacket and scarf with a little injection of red.

There are some gorgeous fine knits to choose from, I was torn between this one.....

Then a couple of pairs of Melly & Co jeans caught my eyes.

There is certainly a gap in my wardrobe for a camo pair!

They have a fantastic range of gifts - these will be going on my wish list!

They stock Kooky Two jewellery - these grabbed my attention

I adore these dainty stars too!

Some pretty scarves for spring!

Well, that's a quick round-up of the pieces that I love, there is plenty more to see here. If anything tickles your fancy you can bag it with 10% off using code MICHELLE. Happy shopping!

Do you have any great little stores where you live? What lovely new brands have you discovered via blogs or Instagram? I would love to hear!

It's the school Easter holidays for us at the moment, we had a quiet week at home but are off to Devon for a few days next week so things will be quiet on the blog front! 

Happy Easter everyone......be back in a bit!
