Clare’s favourites this winter

Casual sweatshirt dress

As we are getting closer to Christmas now I thought I would select a few of my favourites from our autumn winter range. Including an option for the big day!


A sweatshirt dress makes perfect sense at this time of year both for the daytime and the evening. I will definitely pair mine with some tights and boots in the daytime. It is made from 100% cotton and gives you the balance of comfort but with plenty of style.

Working from home

Home office set up

So we decided to do a little move around. Spurred on by the need for a change, I have been working from the dining table for so long and my husband is permanently working from home so we needed an office update and we decided to claim the spare room as our new office.

I can imagine so many people have been looking into doing a similar shift around recently as many of us will be looking at this new way of working long term even as restrictions lift. It seems working from home, at least some of the time, is now the new normal for many.

I have been looking into tips and suggestions on how to keep productive day to day and also pulled from my own experience of working from home with Pentlebay.

Behind The Scenes at our Summer Photoshoot

Studio photoshoot

We recently had another photoshoot for our latest range so I thought it would be fun to give you a little glimpse behind the scenes!

All in the planning

Planning is key! We have done this a number of times now as we generally photograph clothing twice a year. Obviously, the planning does become easier with experience. The first time we did this we were learning as we went along!

First point of call, a few months out, is booking our photographer, Mark. This is shortly followed by a venue for the shoot. We tend to book a venue for the morning to get all our product detail shots for the website done. This time we transformed the village hall in Trumpington near Cambridge into a photography studio for the day!

The location shoots are done in the afternoon, these are needed for lifestyle pictures for the website and social media. We plan where we are going in advance - this time Cambridge - and we always walk the route ahead of the shoot to familiarise ourselves with spots for a great shot. We also contact the local council, and any other property owners, to get permission to take commercial pictures in the location.
