I am glad to see what you have featured in this post. This is the time of year when I finish planning the Fall wardrobe and the Fernleigh diamond quilted jacket is on the list. Not this one per se, I build my own clothes. The clue to this style is the princess seaming that provides a shape without compromising fit. The traditional straight hem is a hallmark. The embellishments make it a Burberry and there are a few I plan to copy. My budget allows certain splurges but not this one!
Thank you for all that you have shared Lucy. Yes, the fit is in particularly striking and it is nice to know it is not exclusive to the brand. 🙂
You always share such wonderful espadrille styles. Merci!
Thank you for stopping by Celaine. Ian my this out lovely? I like how it marries the leather toe strap (more formal) with the cotton laces (more informal). A lovely combination for dressing up and down. 🙂
Love the white linen midi dress and the handbag. I like espadrilles but can’t comfortably wear very high heels. They’re lovely, though.
Love these outfits ! And love that you have discovered and included Reiss so much. It’s one of my favourite high end high street stores. If you are vigilant too you can get items at a much marked down price. I have a beautiful wool belted coat from there that I was able to keep my eye on and purchase for nearly half the original sale price!
Beautiful items – the LK Bennett wedges are divine!
Love it all Shannon. The colours are light and summery. Perfect for a garden party. How timely I am looking for two things for a summer jacket like this lovely Burberry jacket .Alas not in my price bracket but it has inspired me to hunt an alternative. LK Bennett’s straw hat is on my list. British week is very lovely so far. xx
I love the Reiss Heidi black and white midi dress! So unique, and the back is especially lovely! Sad it is available above a size 12.
Maureen are you UK based? If so, try John Lewis, they sell Reiss as a concession and I tend to find all my Reiss items on there 🙂
I love L.K. Bennett’s shoes. She inspired me to embrace the wedge. I was anti-wedge but after seeing her wedges I gave it a go and now I love them. Great pair. Thanks for waking up my inner Anglophile.
Happy to help! 🙂
Thank you. Everything you have shown is lovely. Also, two brands are an introduction to me. I will will continue to look at the web sites and keep abreast of the latest in Britain.
Thank you for stopping by Quinn. Happy to introduce them. I hope you find items that work well for your wardrobe. 🙂
The Fernleigh jacket is my favorite, although it would be for the fall. I am on the wait list for my size. I love the hats! My current favorite hats include a chin strap for breezy days, but I realize that the chin strap takes away a certain bit of glamor.
Cannon, So excited for you to add the Fernleigh jacket to your wardrobe. A staple and stylish piece which will be enjoyed for years. Chin strap or no chin strap, you know what works for you. 🙂
Thank you for reminding me of Reiss! For those that haven’t tried this brand, it’s a great value.
I love these outfits, but I’m wondering if it would be possible to occasionally show retailers or brands that carry outfits over a size 10/12?
I specifically adore the Reiss Dana dress, it is absolutely gorgeous. If I found one that could be tailored to me, I would absolutely wear it once a week, minimum, for YEARS. Gorgeous.
Thank you for your wardrobe inspiration! I thought I had the wardrobe figured out, and then my retirement gift to myself was to stop coloring my hair. Clearly rethinking color, but still (like you and your readers) considering quality in the new pieces. Already looking at the website for Reiss . . .lovely!
Love the dresses and hats, Shannon. I have The Personal Librarian on reserve at the library. Looking forward to reading it this summer!
Shannon, I love The Outfits of the Week/Month, they are vey inspirational and au courant always.
‘Personal Librarian’ looks fab, on the wish list. On the lookout now for espadrilles that have a strap vs ties and are about 1.5″ height. (The Reiss Dana White dress is incroyable et parfait!)
I love these looks- traditional but fresh and feminine.
Sherri, I know I am looking to add a bit of a freshening up to my summer wardrobe after having not done so last year, and a few of these dresses would be a lovely addition. Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
