In true Jane Austen style, we took a little trip to Bath last weekend. Bath is such an amazing place - stunning Georgian architecture, fabulous boutique shops & great museums. We hit this one at the Fashion Museum just before we left for home.
It was absolutely freezing, so warm clothing was a must. I picked up these wonderful brown boots on eBay just a couple of days before we travelled down. I'd been looking for some flat brown boots for ages and these caught my eye. They're Top Shop, which means they're reliable and well made. Didn't break the bank either, at £65, although that is the wonder of eBay. The navy military coat with brass buttons is a find from two years ago. Again Top Shop (I'm really trying to get away from that place - it's just too darn good). The buttons keep falling off but I just keep sewing them back on again. Peeking out from underneath is a fab mustard 60s wool shift I got in New York last Christmas for a bargain $15. I love it and it's so warm.
And the outfit must be completed with a chunky red scarf, thick woollen tights, and a brand new olive green, leather Orla Kiely bag. A third off too! That was the find of the weekend, in a little shop called Prey. If you every happen to take a trip to Bath (and I recommend you do), check it out as it's a mecca for lovers of Orla, Betty Jackson, you name it.
I love weekends away.
