The freedom to go where you want, the freedom to do what you want and the freedom to wear what you want.
Dressing precisely as I please is one of life's joys; sometimes I want to go ultra girly, other times I want to wear something tailored but it's always got to be right for me. My style is almost always influenced by the landscape I love, the wilderness and traditional classics. Tartan is one of my staples in winter but I've yet to be able to incorporate my favourite pattern into my summer wardrobe. Until today, that is. Meet my Vivienne Westwood Ladies' Derby Handbag – New Exhibition from my new go-to site for all countryside style inspiration Country Attire. I'm beside myself with love for this perfect accessory which I can carry around to my heart's content all year round. It looks like I scooped the last one of these beauties but you can pick it up in another colour wave Mac Williams which is gorgeous or in New Exhibition you can still get the Derby cross body bag and the Tessuto Derby orb large shopper.
The weather was strange on this day; sun hiding behind the thick white and grey marbled clouds yet staying humid with a warm breeze which blew my hair with gentle gusts. A pair of denim shorts is a fail safe staple for me, virtually everything will work with them and they are super comfortable. My bright coral vest top makes for a bold splash of colour with my trusty Joules blouse over to keep my shoulders covered. You could wear this alternative from Joules with Porcelain Butterflies which is so pretty!
I'm most at home in an ankle boot and virtually live in them some weeks. These Hudson Tafler Hishine Chelsea boots are everything my feet could ask for and make my heart beat that little bit faster... The quality is amazing, with beautiful crafting and details yet retaining the ultimate practicality needed for a hard wearing boot. They are so stylish that I know I can wear them for both a walk off the beaten path and a shopping trip to a boutique alike.
A huge thank you to Country Attire for all their inspiration and for sending me the shoes and bag to style up. Go check out their amazing new ranges for Autumn/Winter or bag yourself a summer bargain.
