British Casual Weekend

Now I am ready for the British Countryside. I left my heels & blazer in the closet and got my boots & sweater (Hunters would be perfect but I don't own a pair). Yesterday I played around with my clothes, showing slight variations of an outfit till I got it just right. I think most of us do that. I kept the essentials from yesterdays outfit (Jeans, button down and sweater) and added a long sweater coat (not sure what to call this) and some boots. Automatically changes the outfit to something much more casual, like a day in the country.

This is also how we make use of our wardrobe and get more wear out of all our pieces.

What do you think I have in my pockets?

I just can't seem to get rid of this scarf.

See what I mean?

This is what was underneath the blazer and sweater/cardigan (still not sure).

Thank you to everyone who voted for me. I am #7 in the "Circle of Moms" Top 25 Canadian Blogs. No more annoying messages of "Please vote for me". I did discover some new blogs and one I really enjoyed was "Mommy's Weird". Kyla is funny and makes me laugh. Now that the cut throat competition is over I can give her some recognition.

Now back to what's important, what I'm wearing.

Sweater & Shirt - Brooks Brothers (old)
Jeans - James Jeans (old)
