Springtime exploring in Chanel.



      
...Well not entirely but the look was certainly inspired by Chanel S/S 2010 collection.

What a difference the sunshine makes, it was such a welcome addition to the Easter happenings, involving lots of friends, food and laughter. For the first time this year I even went bare legged- a very brave choice but the jacket and skirt is boucle so fairly warm. I have been undecided about these boots since purchasing from Zara in 2008 and consequently remain almost unworn- any thoughts welcome...

The hat is certainly a favourite, succeeding in adding a degree of mystery or 1970's to any outfit. This seems to be the era I am coveting right now!



I spent the last part of Easter in the Lake District with my boy at his family's second home, enjoying much relaxing country walking and visit to a fabulous restaurant.

Hope you all had lots of fun and Easter treats!


(Hat- H&M, Jacket- Marks and Spencers Skirt- (matches EXACTLY but from River island- BONUS) Shoes- ZARA, Pearls- family treasure, ribbon- Chanel (saved from an earring box) real crocodile satchel Bag- family treasure, photos- me)

  31. I really love the boots! Yes I can imagine their probably harder to style in practice rather than theory but they'll never go out of style and are very 70s, as is the hat. Love the entire look x
