I have read The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing, and while it is an excellent book it did not actually prepare me in any way for the real genuine country lifestyle. And Farlows, where I visited last week, is a real genuine country store.

I did enjoy looking round the store - I definitely understand the appeal of barbour, tweed and jumpers with animals on them, even if I've never been within a country mile of, well the real countryside (ok that's a lie, I went on holiday to Wales once), or even a conveniently muddy festival.

Farlows gave me the chance to dress up and play Lady of the Manor for the evening which was great fun, and if you'd like to see the results of all the bloggers who visited check out the Farlows facebook page. For now though you tell me - are you a country Lady? And do you think I could pass?!

This post is very close to my heart because, despite being the ultimate city girl, I'm currently working on the reform of wildlife law - and I think I should be taking inspiration from your outfit in the last photo, out of principle! You carry off 'countryside chic' beautifully!

You look really cute! I also can't help but love all that tweed and wooley animal sweaters and wellies, etc. I would love to spend a week in the English countryside. Also, I read that book years ago too and thought it was very good. :)

It was so much fun hanging at Farlows. I'm pretty obsessed with Tweed now. Love what you picked. The jumper is amazing.

You look lovely! I'm rather fond of a good country side look/style every now and then but I'm born and breed city girl and can't stand too much outdoors! x

You still look like a city girl to me> Maybe its the pearls, I don't know. Nevertheless you look lovely. And I could move in to that store. Just so cozy! British country culture is just so very lovely to me. xxx

Tor said...

The posh country girl look really suits you! If only girls dressed that nice where I'm from, my area was semi-rural but really stereotypically urban working class. :')
