Visible Monday

We are having a wonderful autumn with sunny, dry days. It is good weather for in-between clothing, although it quickly gets cold when the sun begins to sink. This brown velvet jacket is by Paul Smith and it is easy to wear with either jeans or a skirt. (I've discovered that the epaulettes are a very good way of keeping the strap of my shoulder bag from slipping off my shoulder!)
I spend a great deal of time in sturdy cropped jeans from Lands End. Their denim is thick, although my main gardening pair has now had to be patched at the knee. When I'm not grubbing about in the garden I like to wear a dress, very often with a petticoat (Showing my age?) I've had my petticoats for  many years and can't seem to find anything similar to buy these days. However, this grey net one is fairly new, bought just a few years ago. I wear it so that it shows which makes it useful in adding length to this otherwise too-short dress from Boden.
Worn with an old calf skin belt.

  1. Oh, I adore a petticoat peeking out from a hemline! You look wonderful, xo.


  2. I love how you've worn your petticoat here. Makes the dress so special. The grey and brown are beautiful together.

    I was really sorry to read that you were recently burgled. That must be scary and unnerving.


  3. Your very lovely clothes look beautiful on you. You are a perfect model.
