Ok, so it’s a couple of days longer than a week, but I promise I’ll get better at this! Thank you so much to everyone that took the time to send me messages on the new feature, I’m so pleased that you’re enjoying it so far. So I guess that means I need to get some more outfits of the week prepared!
This week it’s all about winter walks in the country and I have the perfect outfit planned… granted this outfit was from a few weeks ago before the cold snap set in, but I still think it’s perfect for a walk in the woods! So without further ado…
- Windermere Fur H2O, Ariat
Another outfit, another pair of boots from Ariat, but what can I say – there’s a definite reason for this! I know I’ve banged on about my love for Ariat and particularly their boots but stick with me, if I’m going on about something a lot, it’s going to be worth it I promise! All of Ariat’s country boots are designed with their famous innovative technology at the core, meaning they’re built to perform as well as look good. And the Windermere Fur H20’s are no exception. The chocolate suede and complimenting brown leather look classy and luxurious alone, but paired with the snuggly faux fur lining trim, it’s the perfect boot for a bit of winter glamour without comprising on practicality. Super comfy and remarkably practical – waterproof and with Thinsulate insulation, these boots were made for Winter! Oh and even better? For the equestrians amongst my readers, these boots are also stirrup friendly so you can stay warm and look stylish whilst out riding.
I am one of those people who seems to have permanently cold fingers and toes and in the winter I can sit for hours (literally) with my feet over the fire before they even think about thawing out. Thick socks are my best friends, as are boots liners but we seem to have a love-hate relationship – they keep my feet warm but irritate me so much as they always wrinkle down. The Windmere’s take this problem away, which quite frankly make these boots my new best friends! A must for anyone that’s out and about in the countryside this winter.
- Monroe Skinny Jeans, Joules
Hands up who struggles to find a good pair of jeans that actually fit? I am constantly looking for a pair that fit me properly but also look good and I think I finally cracked it when I found the Monroe Skinny Jeans from Joules. Seriously – I’ve bought almost every colour! These jeans are flattering and comfortable which is kind of a revelation for me. I also love the colour which is perfect for autumn/winter trends but also double up as brilliant shooting trousers! What else can I say? Everyone needs a pair.
- Cashmere Jumper, M&S
I know you don’t immediately think of M&S when you think of fashion. But that’s ok because I’m not aiming for fashionable, I’m shooting for stylish and classic (or at least thats what I’m trying for!) so this works perfectly well for me. I love the luxury of a cashmere jumper, somehow they seem to be so much more cosy than anything else and this slouchy option from M&S works so well for layering with shirts and simply left alone.
- Sporting Scarf, Barbour
Scarves are perfect at this time of year, particularly when it’s not quite cold enough for a coat but you need something more than just a jumper. Why the sporting scarf? Well it was originally bought for shooting, but I love the lambswool and cashmere blend which make this scarf really soft and cosy but not too bulky. Perfect for pairing with tweed for a full-on country classic look but this scarf is equally at home with jeans to give just a hint of country casual.
- Carrie Cap, Holland Cooper
This hat from Holland Cooper has without a doubt been one of my staples over the last year. I love the updated HC twist on a traditional Baker Boy hat. The neutral oatmeal tweed is a subtle statement and means this hat looks gorgeous with any outfit for any occasion. In this week’s ‘What I’m Wearing’ it’s styled for a country walk, but it also looks great out on the peg or more dressed up with a dress and tights, perhaps for a day at the races. I am a big believer of accessories making a outfit and little touches like the Carrie Cap take a plain, fairly understated outfit and elevate it to standout country chic.
So that’s my ‘walk in the countryside’ outfit shared (don’t worry, I’m sure they’ll be lots more country walk inspired outfits of the week as it forms a bit part of my life!), make sure you stay tuned for my next outfit of the week coming soon! X
