Jack Wills | Dormington Tweed Blazer

30 Sep

Jack Wills started in Salcome, Devon.  His clothes are designed to reflect British Heritage and style.  This tweed Blazer perfectly achieves both aspects.  It is 100% wool, priced at £225 and has a lovely contrast under the collar.  I love the stripe lining that shows if you turn back the cuffs.  This jacket is definitely on my wish list.

Joules – show us your country side!

26 Sep

I have mentioned in previous posts that I think Joules are great for achieving the country girl look.  The garments are designed in the UK and then often made in China.  This does mean that the prices are a lot more accessible to all.  Check out these videos of some of their latest collection.

A massive look for this season is tweed and lace combined into single items.  This Dolce and Gabbana skirt is gorgeous and hot…If you do not have a spare £520, here are some ideas to get the look for less…
