a touch of tweed

I decided to wear this outfit for a country walk we had today. We are lucky to live around the corner from fields that stretch for miles. This tweed riding jacket is ideal for cold days like this and I wear it during more than one season so it is very versatile too. Today I wore it with a pretty paisley blouse and my well worn riding boots; they are soooo comfortable. They were a really good buy as I have had them a couple of years and they still have loads of life left in them!

Found the horse, just need my jodphurs now.  As you can see the horse was desperately trying to get our attention (I think it thought we had food). Promised the horse I would take it some carrots next time!

The church you can see in the background is in the village we live in, it was built in 1869 and is very quaint and cute. It makes for a lovely picture especially when it snows. I love the bustle that is on the back of my jacket, I think this is a lovely feature making it stand out.

lace and nude

This is the outfit I wore for a dinner date with a friend. This dress has been in my wardrobe for a while (another of my lace favourites). I think it's got something of a sixties feel about it; maybe it's the length.

My treat this week was these gorgeous nude shoes. I am quite tall already so, when I put these on I feel quite Amazonian. I love that.

I love this bag. It is simple and versatile. However, I don't think it is that great with this outfit. Quite simply, although I seem to have got quite a few bags, I think I really need two or three good ones that can go with most things.
Has anyone got any ideas for good bags that don't break the bank and look good with many outfits? Do you know a good nude bag for these shoes?
