I don't often get excited about look-books any more. They can all get very same-y and the clothes pictured rarely interest me. Every once in a while, however, something comes along that captivates my attention. 

I've been following @mayflowersupply on Instagram for a while now, relishing the sneak-peeks that Liz has been sharing, teasing out this look-book. Combining all of the things I love at the moment (nature, plants, denim, greenhouses, normcore, simplicity - oh yes, and film photography), the look-book has now been released! And it's a beauty!

Seriously, some of the finest editorial imagery I've seen in ages. Head over to Mayflower Supply to feast your eyes on the rest of the photos and to snap up the vintage items pictured before you miss out.

Look-book: Mayflower Supply

The Dream

Running down the beach barefoot; wearing naught but a thin cotton shirt dress with your boyfriend's jumper thrown on top, hair knotting in the wind behind you. Cabbages & Roses SS14 look-book evokes dreams of cottages by the sea in Devon: potting vegetables in the garden, licking clotted cream off your fingers from copious amounts of scones, closing your eyes and welcoming the salty smell of sea air. This is the England that those overseas dream of. The England of secret gardens and ruined castles and Enid Blyton books. An Aga in the kitchen, a claw-foot bath in the bathroom, an open fire crackling in the sitting room. Tomato plants entwined inside an enchanting greenhouse, chickens clucking around an overgrown garden and wisteria creeping up the old stone walls. Days are spent climbing cliffs, making daisy chains in fields and dipping toes into the icy sea.The Dream.

Welcome to the second edition of My Great Outdoors!

My second contributor is the talented Jordan Voth. I first discovered Jordan's photography via a search for #thatnwbridge and have since continued to fall for his epic landscapes; from his local Washington forests and cliffs to awe-inspiring canyons and caves. Read on to discover his Great Outdoors.

"One of my favorite spots to explore is around the Hoh Rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula.  In a 30 mile radius there are a lot of awesome things to see, my favorite being Cape Flattery, La Push & the rainforest itself. It is located on the western side of the Olympic National Park and is one of the largest temperate rainforests in the country. The average rainfall here is around 12-14 feet (yes, feet) of rain per year so don’t be surprised if it’s raining during your visit. There are a ton of trails making it a great spot to hike through and see all of the mossy-awesomeness the rainforest has to offer. La Push is a great little town and the hike down to second beach is amazing. One of my favorite hikes to do in that area. 
Cape Flattery is the northwesternmost point of the United States and looks unreal in person. It totally looks like a different country out there. The water is extremely teal & there are many sea caves along the coastline. All of these places are fairly easy to get to, just follow 101 North from Seattle and follow the signs for each. La Push is great to visit in the summer time since the tide is usually out much further and allows you to walk out on the beach."

The countdown is on! Just under three weeks to go until our train travels to Primavera commence. With temperatures set to scorch during the days and plummet at night, I'm attempting to avoid a last minute trolley dash around Manchester city centre by planning somewhat in advance. 

I'm thinking long loose layers of jersey midi dresses, cropped t-shirts, slinky skirts and printed pants; all wrapped up with my trusty denim jacket (a recent £5 charity shop steal!) and topped off with a goes-with-everything trilby.
