STYLE IN YOUR CITY // BRAINTREE - THOUGHTFUL CLOTHING

Dashka Hart Leggings from Braintree Clothing Style in your city
I'm not sure how another fortnight has flown by already but it's time for #StyleInYourCity once again, which showcases your life and creates a community celebrating all the things you love about where you live. It's been a little quiet on the blog but very busy behind the scenes, and if I'm honest I still haven't quite caught up after the long Easter break –hence the radio silence – which is why I've decided to create this post around tranquil spaces and thoughtful fashion.

I am very excited to announce a special Style in Your City this fortnight in collaboration with the wonderful Braintree Thoughtful Clothing. I've recently fell in love with the comfort and ethics of these clothes and couldn't wait to share the exciting news that I'm now a regular contributor over at Braintree's BThoughtful Blog. Born in Sydney, Australia and now based in London, Braintree is a natural clothing company which has been championing eco fibres since mid 1990's - always produced ethically and with sustainability in mind. All of their clothes are made from sustainable fibres such as hemp, bamboo & organic cotton. These fabrics are good for the environment and great to wear and feel amazing to touch.

One of the things I love about Bristol is the ability to find an oasis of calm somewhere in the city, for me it's the Lido. Tucked away from the main roads and subtly placed amongst a row of Georgian houses is one of the UK's oldest surviving Lido's, allowing outdoor swimming all year round. This pool, spa, cafe and restaurant is one of my go-to places when I need to clear my mind and relax. After growing up by the sea I always find the water so calming and when the sun shines, there's no better place to sip coffee and watch the world swimmers go by.

Over the last few weeks I have visited the Lido a few times for coffee/me time, or with F in tow and have taken time to sidestep the rush of everyday life. While treating the mind to a bit of down time, I've also enjoyed styling the softest of fabrics and loving my body with these beautiful timeless designs.

 These Dashka Heart Bamboo Leggings have been great with this transitional weather, teamed with either boots and a dress or sandals and tee, they have kept my legs happy and they are perfect for doing exercises in too. I've also been loving my Avika Striped top which I've been sporting on IG recently, the boxy style boho look is perfect with ripped denim jeans, pumps and gold necklace for an urban edge to ethical clothing. And don't get me started on how cute these Bayou Organic Cotton Denim Jeans and Jagger Striped Cotton Dress is, both perfect for sunny adventures in far away places.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Last fortnight I think this was my favourite image from Instagram due to the super spring vibes and this zesty coloured bike captured by Emily. My post pick was by Gingerlillytea, who proves that you can find style outside the city with this beautiful photography. Don't forget to hop over to Tigerlilly Quinn for her favourite snaps from the last fortnight and to see what style has caught her eye.

So how does it work? 

We would love it if you wanted to link up and join in with 'Style in your City'. We want you to hunt down your style finds and it could be anything: colourful buildings, street art you've spotted, fashion your loving, art you've seen, fab floors, the list goes on. We'll be showcasing our favourites on our blogs each fortnight. We're running this as a bi-weekly feature and you don't have to have a blog to join in or live in a bustling city for that matter, simply use the hashtag #styleinyourcity on twitter and/or IG with a photo and tag @wildandgrizzly and @tigerlillyquinn.

You can find me on Instagram here and twitter here.
You can find Fritha on Instagram here and twitter here.

Thanks so much to everyone who linked up over the last two weeks, we'd love to see you link up either below or on Instagram/twitter, we'll announce our favourite link up in two weeks time.
