Gypset Style in a Click: Cavan

After April snow showers in London, and the coldest May Day in Hong Kong since 1917, we'd seriously begun to lose all hope of ever seeing summer again. Thankfully though, the last couple of weeks in both London and Hong Kong, have finally yielded some tantalising glimpses of sunshine. While it may be a little gloomy and grey today, we're optimistically dreaming of blue skies, beach days and long, frosty glasses of spiked lemonade...

Of course in these daydreams, we're our perfect summer selves. We're tanned and toned, with perfectly imperfect, tousled, sun-kissed hair. We're wearing minimal make-up because we're bronzed and well-rested after a week somewhere exotic with the prospect of another week somewhere even more exotic before too long. And of course we're draped in something boho-luxe that we just threw on over our bikinis accessorized with a jangle of bangles and bare feet.

In fact we're pretty much Brigitte Bardot, Talitha Getty and Elizabeth Taylor...

The issue comes when we attempt to invoke those perfect summer selves, but all that a rifle through our wardrobes comes up with is a sad, saggy bikini and a moth-eaten kaftan - more gypsy, less jetset... 

And then boom! All our Bardot/Getty/Taylor prayers were answered with this week's launch of brand new online boutique, Cavan.


A complete one-stop shop for all your louche-luxe summer dressing essentials, Cavan will have you Bardot beautiful from the top of your floppy straw hat to the sole of your studded leather sandals...

The site stocks a vareity of brands from those we know and love - Missoni, Melissa Odabash & Jenny Packham - to new and exciting finds like Lotty B, A Piedi and La Morenita. The site also boasts a beautiful magazine section (we're loving the Cavan guide to New York) and there's even a selection of homeware to ensure that your sofa will be just as gypset adorned as your coat-hangers.

So while we wait for the grey clouds to scud away and work on perfecting that just rolled off the beach hair, all that remains to do is get shopping for our perfect summer self capsule wardrobes...
