wearing : little tienda

this is a sponsored post / photos by Luisa Brimble

As far as I'm concerned, a hammock is a household necessity. I'd go as far as saying that it's more important than a couch. Daniel and I have always owned a hammock and it's been the perfect excuse for many a lazy afternoon swinging on the balcony. One thing I have learned over the years is that cheap hammocks are never comfortable; they most definitely do not induce relaxation. Hence we have always invested in a quality double hammock that we know will last a good few years. The mayan hammock is our current choice (it would make the perfect Father's Day gift!) - it rolls up easily without getting tangled so it's great for picnics and camping trips, it's easy to hang up and, most importantly, it's comfortable - as in, you can very easily take a nap in it. A hammock is the ideal family gift - practical, portable and perfect for all ages. 

Little Tienda's entire clothing collection is sourced from artisans in Mexico; family business that have passed down crafting techniques from one generation to the next. I own a few pieces (see some summery suggestions here) and the cotton is beautifully soft, the embroidery intricate and beautiful. Whilst many of the pieces are vivid and detailed I really love the simpler styles in shades of white, grey, black and cream. They are easy to wear, flatter all shapes and sizes and take you from winter to summer - everything is trans-seasonal. 

Do you own a piece from Little Tienda? If so, how do you wear it? 


  1. Lazing in a hammock is one my list of things to do for this year. It has been so long! I'll be bookmarking this one. Thank you Jodi. x

  2. I have been dreaming of a little tienda wardrobe (or at least a piece or two) for a long time. Maybe you've pushed me over the edge...

    1. You won't regret it. Ad it's all fair trade so think of it as fashion with a conscience x

  3. No I don't, but every time I see a black piece on Em's Instagram, my ears prick up! You had me at hammock though, swoon x

  4. Oh Jodi, you are beautiful! Have a gorgeous weekend...
