  • Undeniably the pressure to 'go Christmas shopping' is building, just wondering whether if one went wearing this (dream) outfit the crowds would part, the perfect presents would present themselves magically and snowflakes would gently fall.......#festiveedit #collenandclare #christmasshopping #southwold #aldeburgh #burnhammarket #proudlyindependent #instafashion #instachristmas #shoplocal

  • We have heard this quote, and all its iterations, many times @proudcouture cards making us smile ...... #online and in our #southwold store

  • The #festiveedit #collenandclare style.
For today's imaginary smart drinks party (that we aren't going to - the reality is washing football and rugby kit) we want to be wearing an item jacket with pleated maxi skirt, sleeves pushed up and killer earrings. Easy.

  • Hoping our #christmaswindows can tempt you to come shopping in #southwold #aldeburgh or #burnhammarket this season #worthavisit for #trulyindependent #christmasshopping and quite wonderful if we say so ourselves.
@paperdreams we hope you like what we've done with your amazing paper creations #sustainable #simple #christmas.
@morgan.richards you and your glue gun #legend
  • Loving our elves at work ..... #makingmagic #brilliantboutique #collenandclare #christmasshopping

  • Burnham Market Chrstmas Lights Switch On we are ready for you.
We can think of no better destination tomorrow than a visit to this gem of a #northnorfolk village, the festive lights are just beautiful.
We have mulled wine and mince pies ready and a shop full of good stuff, do pop in.
We are opposite @satchellsofburnham and next to @barefootlivingnorfolk and think that between the 3 of us we have a lot of shopping bases covered.

  • A sneaky behind the scenes shot of @morgan.richards who has been busy with her helpers up in our #burnhammarket store preparing for the first of three weekends of #christmas #lightswitchon in our towns.

We are thrilled to be decorating all our stores with the wonderful @paperdreams sustainable, reusable and we think rather cool.#collenandclare #coastalandchic #paperdreams #brilliantboutique #shopindependent #shoplocal
  • Our Southwold mens runway laden with gifting ideas but thinking after what feels like #firstfrost we may need warm layers sooner #trulyindependent #southwold #christmasshopping #aldeburgh #burnhammarket #brilliantboutique #collenandclare #coastalandchic #barbour #warm
  • Our High Street is buzzing today. I have just whizzed around and bought everything we need (and more) for the weekend: local lamb and partridge, sourdough, pomegranates and a great Christmas decoration from @gallerythea.
Everywhere we went we were greeted with smiles and by people who know their stuff - it was a joy.
.
So what better time to start shouting about this Proudly Independent #highsteeet inviting you to come Christmas Shopping all day on Saturday December 7th.
.
We will all be offering festive cheer, great service, great product (I genuinely believe you can do almost all your shopping in this town) music, mince pies and mulled wine.
Do join us for #joyous

  • Time to put your boots on...... new Penelope Chilvers and Falke socks have arrived and so we thought it time to give away a free pair of Falke socks with any pair of boots purchased this weekend #wothavisit #destinationshopping #brilliantboutique #boots #socks #cosy
  • Wise words from our buyer Morgan......
.
Remember, remember the 5th of November knitwear, layers and boots.
The clocks have fallen back and my thoughts turn to all things cosy.
It seems there is a new season dress code, lighter weight dresses and skirts are given longevity by layering with chunky knits and pairing with a knee boot or a heavier 'hob nail'.
I've already treated myself to the ultimate winter coat. The Urbani, swipe left, does it all, chic yet utterly waterproof and warm (I should know I walk to work and have tested it already).
As the buying season begins again I inevitably revert to key black items, these are my favourites, leather leggings, a black roll neck and a handy cross body bag. 
All wardrobe building pieces that you will thank me for.

  • Four ways with checks, take your pick but layer up and team with boots.
#baumundpferdgarten check pieces #unisa boots and #mulberry bags taking centre stage on this wild and windy day.

  • So today we said farewell - but not goodbye - to Jade, our #collenandclare #burnhammarket manager.
Jade has been with us for 4 years and will, for some time to come hold the title of being our youngest ever store manager.
Clearly this is @morgan.richards and I trying to impart last minute life knowledge and skills - good luck with those Jade..... .
It's been a blast and a joy to see you mature, marry and manage, good luck with your next venture and don't listen to a word we said.
