Thanks mymlan and hula!!

I've actually sent the Boden waxed coat back- the zip wasn't easy to use, and have bought a waxed barbour instead which I adore which has a gorgeous Liberty rose print lining!!!! will start using ivy bays this week as kids back to school!

Have used my heart print scarf a couple of times but haven't used the green butterfly one at all. The butterfly one i feel is quite summery but we never seemed to get a summer!!!

Late to this but country chic is definitely you.
Glad to hear ivy Bays is getting some use, I always think of choc when I think of you, it's your signature colour!

haha- something to do with being a vet I think. Need a barbour, wellies and a black lab/ springer spaniel or border terrier!

^^I've lost quite a bit of weight & have had to send my coats to the charity shop. I'm down to a full length down coat and a leather jacket!
I've started the hunt for a swingy number to go with Daria, don't think a waxed jacket would fit the bill though.
Has Ivy bays had some use yet?

^^It's the perfect autumn bag. Maybe another couple of weeks or when the leaves really start turning.
I'm digging out oak Mitzy and choc Hanover for autumn weekends.

No, not yet. It arrived on Friday. I took black Somerset shoulder to Bath yesterday and have had a home day today. I have sorted my wardrobe out and realised most of it is grey & black so Daria was a good buy!
I used oak Mitzy & choc Hanover quite a lot last autumn, they seem to work well with jeans and weekend clothes.
Was really parky here last night but it's been bright & sunny today. I'm itching for the temperature to fall so I can light the fire!

^^Me too. I happiest from October - Jan. Just love Halloween, Bonfire Night & Christmas.
We're going back to France in October for a longish weekend so I'll be stocking up on huge pine cones for the fire. We're in a pine forest so I go for a wander & come back with masses. I'll bring you some back, they're brilliant fire starters!
