We managed to grab a break this weekend inbetween sheep moving/checking, cow feeding and other farm related activities! We have been wanting to explore the woodland near our farmhouse ever since we moved in last
September, and it didn’t disappoint! Sun dappled and covered in rhododendrons, it felt like we could have been in the middle of a Canadian forest.
I’m delighted with this little beauty, despite being tweed, its really nice and lightweight, whilst still waterproof. A great transeasonal coat that stands up to unpredictable British weather! It has adjustable waist straps at the back which nip it in nicely, and also has them on the cuffs too. The colour is unusual for a tweed jacket and the brown is a great colour that pretty much goes with anything.
These boots are AMAZING.
1. They are the perfect height, they sit a bit higher than other country boots out there and are really flattering on the old legs as a result.
2. They are also really sturdy, I love a sturdy boot, it means that they ‘stand up’ on their own and won’t ‘sag’ (sorry, I hate that word, but couldn’t think of any other word to describe!).
3. They are super easy to clean (that’s my no.1 advantage these days on the farm – everything has to be mud proof!)
4. They will get only get better with age, a bit of mud and once they are nice and worn in.
My Toggi wishlist…
Toggi have got some gorge spring wear in at the moment, I know I’m a sucker for a stripe, but I’ve also been lusting over this Cranston jumper! Then their Morella boots will defo be going on my Birthday wishlist!
