What is Seasalt like? I have seen a couple of things that I like there for myself and for the DC. I know its a bit mumsy, but then my usual "style" (if you could call it that) is Boden/White Stuff/Joules so that isn't too much of an issue.
I've got a couple of their stripey long-sleeved t-shirts (from Ji-binc - style icon that I am !) - one has shrunk quite a lot and the other is so far OK but as I bought a far bigger size than normal to wear when I was expecting I doubt I'll be wearing it much again. Like their linen stuff and jackets but not enough to buy them!
I have a skirt from Sea Salt which I love but I did have it taken up by about 4 inches as twas a tad mumsy at a below-knee length. I love it though and it has worn and washed really well. I also have a long sleeve tee which is baby soft and has retained it's colour well too.
Any brand can appear mumsy - even the Stella McCartney's of the world - it all comes down to how you wear it/style it.
I have just bought a Seasalt sweatshirt. I won't be wearing it to work or anything vaguely formal but very useful for schlepping about in. (I do sigger at the way they pretend everything is made in Cornwall though-it isn't. Made in India. Nowt wrong with that but enough already of the bucket 'n spade Rock fantasy)
I was in Cornwall this week and bought a really cute Seasalt cotton dress - casual summer-style in a washed-out pink colour, fits me really well.
BUT after one wear I noticed a little hole in the sleeve . A ten-hour round-trip to return it won't be possible, so it's lucky I'm handy with a needle and thread. I also noticed the "made in India" label!
All of their stuff is quite Boden-ish and brightly-coloured, but they had some nice little cotton A-line summer skirts. I would certainly buy from there again, but probably wouldn't wear it from head to toe.
