Is it warm out there or is there a chill in the air - it's dry, nope it's raining! It's an all too familiar quandary we face every morning, playing roulette with the British weather.
It plays havoc on our wardrobes leaving us all too often inappropriately dressed but fear not, here's our guide to getting it right at this inclement time of year with these key pieces:
A light (showerproof) jacket:
This lightweight blue number by Danish brand Numph with a funky lining, deep pockets and that all important hood is perfect for the English summer and will work well into autumn too.
Numph Jacket £89.95
New season jeans:
The great thing about new season jeans is that they inject a new edge to existing pieces - freshening up your look. These fab new arrivals from Denim Hunter are ankle length with a zip in a blue wash, they look gorgeous with pumps.
Denim Hunter Celina Custom £90
The logo tee:
It probably hasn't escaped your notice that logo tee's are pretty big news this season - keep it colourful with a nod to summer with this Melon themed number by Kaffe. Good enough to wear without the jacket for those sunny periods!
Melon t-shirt £30
Taylor Blake ballet pumps are something to behold, stylish and comfortable in contemporary colours - the only problem is which ones to choose! We love the pop of colour the Mangrove offers our spring wardrobe and they look amazing with the Celina ankle length jeans.
A statement accessory:
Nothing screams summer like a bold accessory in bright turquoise and pinks, we particularly like the stack bangle by fashion forward brand Smashglam and we're looking forward to wearing this on a tanned wrist later in the year too!
Maya stack £14.50

The saying may go ‘new year, new me’... but isn’t it more fun to say ‘new year, new wardrobe’? In reality, keeping your look fresh doesn’t have to mean overhauling your entire wardrobe. For a little seasonal pick-me-up, we’ve rounded up some essentials to take you into a new season with style.
ICHI Marna pullover - £30
You only have to look at the latest cover of Vogue to know pink is big news this season. While it used to be the reserve of 80s films starring Molly Ringwald and teen magazine cover stars, pink has grown up. And the fantastic thing about it is just how versatile it is. This textured pullover is perfect for casual every day.
ICHI Asilo shirt in forest green - £24
It’s the time of year where I always seem to find myself inbetween looks – not quite ready to pack up my chunky knits, not quite ready to break out the t-shirts. This striped shirt is the ideal transition piece and perfect for lazy girls who want to throw it over jeans and look amazing. Team with a sharp blazer and trainers for off-duty chic.
Numph New Darlene top - £45
If you’re looking for a top that does everything, this might just be it! Candy pastels with a hint of sparkle make this perfect for all occasions, from school-run to evening drinks. I love a beaten-up trainer for a more casual look but go with a skinny pant and heel if you want to make it more dressy.
Numph Brigette shirt – £45
Possibly my favourite piece this season, I’m in love with this unique baby blue shirt. Great for freshening up your work wardrobe, team with wide legged trousers (I’m appreciating a pinstripe right now) and a pair of dolly pumps for comfort.
ICHI Valain scarf in blue surf - £19
Last but not least, if you’re looking for something stylish to wrap around yourself, try this on for size. Checks are still big business this season, so go big and double up with a tailored check coat.

We seemed to go from summer to autumn at 100mph this year. Somewhere in-between cocktails on the beach and mulled wine around the fire is autumn, bringing with it whole new wardrobe potential! We’re all about those capsule pieces at Weave, the ones you can wear again and again. So, as the winter nights draw in we’ve pulled together four key pieces guaranteed to see you through the season in style.
Grace and Mila Notify parka - £110
The reality is, however gorgeous your outfit, most of the time you’ll be forced to cover it with an outer layer you can rely on to keep you warm and dry! So, investing in a coat that goes with everything is a must-have as the seasons change. This everyday parka from Grace and Mila is the definition of cosy, with a gorgeous faux fur lining. Team with your favourite jeans and a pair of adidas classics.
Part Two pullover in rio red - £89.95
This season’s colour is red, and in a BIG way, with Balenciaga amongst those showcasing it on the runway at Fashion Week. The wool and mohair mix is super luxurious, with the ribbed sleeve detailing providing a fitted feel. Tuck into a full-bodied skirt or with a pair of skinny trousers and a crisp white shirt for the office.
Numph hat - £12, mittens – £18, scarf – £28
Accessories are a great way to lift an outfit and there’s nothing like a bit of co-ordination to pull a look together. This chunky knitted teal trio from Numph will keep you toasty yet stylish. We love the mittens, so on-trend!
Elvira leather green bag – £55
Autumn can unintentionally draw us to darker colours but this leather purse offers a vibrant pop of colour. Its cross-body style means it’s perfect for a day around the shops or, detach the strap and use as a stylish clutch for a night out.

When it comes to the summer sales, we love the idea of a good high street hunt. Yet it can quickly turn into a draining task, trawling endless rails in search of those bargain items. Instead of falling prey to sale fatigue this year, why not head to your local independent where the aisles are wide, the changing rooms spacious and where your friendly boutique owner is on hand to help you browse those lesser-known brands to find something that no-one else has!
With the summer months (hopefully!) just beginning, here are our top three sale picks that you can wear again and again.
Part Two Hido pullover – WAS £64.95 NOW £45
This versatile number from Part Two is great for every day, tucking under a blazer in the office or with a pair of linen trousers at the weekend. Perfect for throwing in your handbag on those days when the weather turns and you need to slip something over that strappy summer dress.
Marrakech dress in total eclipse – WAS £30 NOW £20
I love having one of those ‘any occasion’ dresses for holiday that can take me from beach cover-up to dinner and drinks. The ‘swing’ in this dress makes it nice and cool for those balmy summer nights – you just might have to go further afield than the UK to find them! Add some strappy sandals and gold jewellery to dress this up.
Numph Nann t-shirt – WAS £32, NOW £28
We’re loving the seashell print of this Numph t-shirt. Sitting just on the hip, this is great with a pair of denim high-waist shorts or some skinny black trousers. Add some coral accessories to really go all-out on the theme.

Weave turns 2!
It doesn’t feel all that long ago that we were putting away the party streamers following our first birthday celebration. So, to think that we’re now approaching the eve of our second year is really exciting!
We’ve grown again in the last twelve months and opened our doors to even more brilliant brands like denim label Wåven and Danish favourites Numph and ICHI, as well as launching our Hygge corner, featuring lots of gorgeous home goodies including Cheadle based, family-run Wiff Candles.
To mark our second year in business, we’d like to invite all our lovely friends and customers to join us for a special evening of celebrations at our home on Shaw Road. The prosecco will be flowing, with some sweet treats making their way round as you drink, shop and chat!
We’ll be offering our shoppers some juicy discounts on the night as well as a fresh delivery of summer styles. Last, but by no means least, the girls from Taylor Blake Shoes will be popping down to launch their new gorgeous new Botany range of beautiful ballet flats which will have an exclusive discount only available on the night.
The party kicks off at 7pm on Thursday 25th May at our boutique at 25 Shaw Road, in Heaton Moor, Stockport.
See you then!
