I'm a girl in love with the countryside, it's where I belong. It's my home.

The golden fields of wheat are now being harvested at a rate of knots, the last few remain and I'm making the most of every remaining crop I catch sight of. The bushy ears are reluctantly giving way to the shorn stubble ready for ploughing and another facelift which is sad in a way, I'm not ready to wave goodbye to summer just yet...

I'm always confused when people wear the most boring clothes while out and about in the countryside. There is no need! You can dress exactly how you want, there are no rules. I'm a believer in dressing yourself happy; a flowing skirt or a pretty dress can completely change your mood (and it beats wearing shapeless trousers any day of the week). I'm a country girl and I shall dress as I please. My latest discovery is the most exciting brand for me (ever) Country Attire who specialise in fabulous clothing for the countryside. Both practical and gorgeously chic clothing, a great range of stock to suit a whole host of budgets. I'm impressed! So many high quality names I'm familiar with and a few new introductions to boot. I'm lusting after most of the pieces they have for the new season. I can't stop thinking about the new pieces in for Autumn it's got my mind whirring for some wonderful new outfits for the cooler days.

Today I chose a pleated midi skirt and a loose cotton top along with the most amazingly high quality shoes I have ever worn (or ever been allowed to touch come to that). These Grenson Joanie tan leather brogues are perfect for wearing with skirts or shorts and come Autumn, I'm thinking a pair of jeans and/or smart trousers with a neat turn-up and a chunky knit jumper or long socks and a pinafore.

How dreamy is this perfect cross body bag from Joules? It's going to be a staple on my days out; a good size without being too chunky, I can fit all my must-haves in plus a couple of extras and wear it comfortably, you can't beat a crossover bag for comfort and practicality when you have a few things to carry with you. The quality is really high so I'm happily looking forward to using it for years to come!

  1. Yes, I love brown brogues. bought a lovely new pair in a charity shop to replace my knackered ones, and CBC stole them!
    The outfit is very pretty.
    It depends what I'm doing in the countryside to determine what I wear. If I'm just floating around fields or having a gentle amble, I'll wear whatever but for a longer hike with muddy patches, I prefer to wear something that doesn't get ruined by mud too much, e.g. trousers as I don't like getting scratched by brambles and nettles or slipping on rocks and scree. I ripped a pretty skirt on brambles once. I like to wear a nice, bright top though. Walking boots are a necessity though as I'm clumsy and I'll slip and fall on hills. I guess you don't have that problem in Norfolk though, it is a lot flatter than some places.

  2. oh how I love this outfit in so many ways! I adore brogues and these are a particularly fine pair, very handsome. The little socks are very 'land girls' and the skirt and top utter perfection.

    And I couldn't agree more that people dress a certain way when they visit the countryside, it's like they think 'countryside, OK, must wear trousers that zip off at the knees and a hefty pair of walking boots'. I do chuckle at this.

    Last week I visited a dairy farm to see the new born calfs - so cute - and I wore a maxi dress that slightly skimmed the floor - everyone was so worried about my 'lovely dress'. It did get a little grubby on the hem and it got slobbered on my a milky faced calf but you know what - I just washed it, just like everyone else who was there did with their clothes. The floor of the barn was a little dusty and had some straw on it, possibly some feed, but I probably have worse than that on my own kitchen floor, thanks to Andy tramping in and out with his boots on all day!
    All you need is footwear tolerant of the ground beneath your feet. I say, if in doubt wear wellies, because wellies go with everything! But then I do love my wellies ;-)

  7. Lovely outfit! You are rocking the socks and shoes look and I love the bag. We have a Joules opening near me soon and I'm fearful for my bank balance.
