Easy Breezy Brand of the moment… Son de Flor

As many of you probably know by now I have something of a vintage soul, and while scrolling Instagram a few weeks ago I came across this beautifully nostalgic brand, Son de Flor.

I was instantly captivated by its ethereal images and the wonderful simplicity of its folksy garments.

The brand is all about that easy breezy slow life, a world away from the usual fast fashion that we see every day.


I’ve always thought there is something delicious about owning that one classic, well-made, well-loved staple garment that can be worn for every adventure and occasion. One which can be your signature item that you can practically live in. One which, one day, will be adopted by someone else and will become an old book full of stories. I think these frocks are just that.

Son de Flor’s dresses have something of an eclectic, modest charm. They sort of remind me of something a new age Elizabeth Bennett would wear or one of the girls from Little House on the Prarie, and although their garments are simplistic they stand out from the crowd for that reason. They possess that ageless, vintage look that you don’t often get today.


What is even more wonderful about the brand’s dresses are that they have a classic timelessness to them which means they can be worn for a range of different occasions and be, as the brand puts it, ‘just right’. They are easy to pop on through the day for trips to the countryside, at tea parties with friends, or dressed up with heels and a classic red lip for an evening occasion. They really do make for effortless dressing and style.


As a massive added bonus the brand is conscious and creates its clothing with linen, sourced and made by responsible producers and suppliers. What’s more, the fact that they are made of linen means that the dresses are easy to move and adventure in and are light and airy for warm summer days and layerable for winter or for an added touch of detail.

I adore these smock dresses layered up for a retrospective look. They come in a range of bold beautiful colours too!

Which is one of the factors that draws me to the brand so much, the fact that you can buy one staple dress and then add separate layers to add an alternative neckline or hem or another layer of warmth. They will never go out of style or season.

These little petticoats are perfect on their own in hot summer heat or layered under dresses.

The linens come in a range of different colours, for if you like striking, standout hues like yolky mustards, crimson reds or more natural and subtle colours like oatmeals, crisp whites, and olives.


If I were to style these dresses myself I’d definitely add a white layer underneath for a more vintage look and would match it with little leather sandals or brogues and straw boater hat for summer. Alternatively, I’d pair it with brown ankle boots, chunky knitwear, and backpacks for winter.

This is one of my Kate favourites of the collection. I just love the crisp white cotton for Summer.

If you happen to have a mini me, you can also go matchy-matchy with the brand’s adorable little girls range (I mean seriously, how cute?)

If you’re not a dress kind of girl, the brand have also created beautiful blouses and skirts in the same airy fabrics and tones for the new season.

Is this the most versatile accessory ever? 

I’ve always had a thing for headwear and hair accessories. It’s always been my ‘thing’ as I have never been someone who wears jewellery but I love to play around with shoes, bags and headwear. I like to add a bit of quirkiness or nostalgia to my outfits because, hey! It’s fun to be different and I think the way to do that best is with accessories. 

As I am a recent graduate and have things to save for, I tend to try and be a bit more savvy with my buys where I can. I spotted this gorgeous satin scarf the other day and it was an instant impulse buy. I fell in love with the bold, satsuma orange colour with its oriental bloom pattern, which gives the glamorous 1940’s land girl vibe that I love. 

I have found that unlike some hair-ties, it is a perfect length to be a really versatile accessory, which is great because you get more looks for your mula! 

Aside from using it for multiple hairstyles, you can tie them around your neck for another more sophisticated, polished vintage vibe. It also makes for a nice alternative to the choker trend if you want to be a bit different. Pair with a trench, red listick and sunnies or a crisp white blouse and tailored trousers for a glam, retro daytime look. 

If you like to be a bit edgier with your fashion, scarves also look super cool wrapped around ankles and wrists to add a more effortlessly casual, boho accent to any maxi dress, shorts or jeans combo. 

Finally I really love to use vintage scarves to upcycle thrifted or basic bags. It helps to give them a retro twist, adds detail and gives them a new lease of life. Tip: they look great wrapped around smaller handles multiple times and knotted to finish. Also the great thing about having a scarf attached to your bag all the time is that you’ll never be caught out having a surprise bad hair day! 

If you want to experiment with scarves you can buy them new at H&M, (where the featured scarf is from), they have a couple of different patterns so you can choose one which suits, or you can pick them up from almost all vintage sales and shops if you’re looking for something a bit more individual. 

Remember you can follow me on Instagram for regular styling posts @katewears, I’d love to see your take on the trend too! 

Happy accessorising!
