The English countryside holds a certain fascination for those of us who come from far flung countries like New Zealand or Borneo. The grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side. Literally. I guess for that reason, one can understand why the vegetation is so lush, thanks to the amount of rainfall that we get here in England. It's stuff that I used to read in Enid Blyton books with images of rolling hills, woods, country lanes, picnics and walks that often evoke a feeling of wonder for city folks like me.
Ever since we moved to Hampshire, I've been told by friends that there's a certain style pertaining to the area. Quilted shower proof jackets and wellies are common practical country clothing that I've adopted. As for the breton top? Well, I can't do without it. I've collaborated with Joules to come up with a collage which combined a wish list (handmade Chelsea boots from Northampton) and what I commonly wear when I'm out on a walk along the country lanes here. I couldn't resist adding a few cute pieces which I'd love to get for Lil L.
