As I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, I’m having a bit of a pompoms and tassels moment this season. Show me a dress or top adorned with tassels or a basket smothered in pompoms and I’m a happy woman. The same goes for Daisy’s clothes. I cannot help myself. It didn’t start out as intentional, it just happened!
Perhaps it’s because I’ve been deprived all winter, but pompoms and tassels just don’t work in colder climes in the same way, they’re just a bit too, well, boho. Yet roll on summer and they come into their own.
As a woman in her forties though, there’s a limit to how far I can go, a tassel-fringed top, a pompom accessory is all well and good, but it should probably stop there. However, when it comes to Daisy, there are no limits, the more the better as far as I’m concerned. While a pompom may look silly on an adult, they just look adorable on children.
Next and Accessorize have a great selection of dresses and kaftans adorned with pompoms and tassels, along with pretty embroidery. I have a tendency to snap them up when I see them, because chances are, when the hot weather strikes (here’s hoping), they will have sold out.
Below are a few of my favourites, some of which have sneaked into Daisy’s wardrobe already.
