One of the things that you may not know about me, my lovely readers, is my love of pigs. It’s definitely not something that you assume about me, what with my love of fashion and the city, but I am slightly obsessed by them and I have been desperate to go to a farm and visit some. Another new fact about me is that I am now a Godmother so I can have a trip to children friendly places with my beautiful Goddaughter Georgie without looking a tad out of place, so on a recent day out I was able to incorporate three of my favourite things; Georgie, Pigs, and of course Fashion.
I decided to go for farmer chic with a bit of inspiration from Made in Chelsea’s Millie Mackintosh; if anyone can look stylish in the country it’s Millie. I thought she looked amazing for a visit to the farm for a Christmas turkey, although not sure if Rosie the turkey agreed.
I am a huge fan of Wellies which is ironic for a number of reason, firstly that I am most definitely a city girl; I itch if am not within a mile of a local Starbucks and I live in Jesmond which for those of you who don’t know is a suburban bubble, where there is very little requirement for wellies. I would love a pair of Hunter wellies, however I don’t feel that I can really justify the £80 price tag to walk through sodden leaves. I have always preferred classic green wellies and I love how these wellies are not full length which avoids the dreaded calf burn.
The perfect trousers to go with wellies have to be Skinny Jeans or Jeggings. To be honest it’s very rare I wear Jeggings but they work a lot better if you are tucking trousers into boots, as long as they are worn with a long top, to cover one’s modesty. I decided to go with navy Jeggings as I wanted my outfit to be classic country with a city twist.
A check shirt is a wardrobe staple and I will defy any girl that tells you she doesn’t have one. They are ideal for a lazy day, a cover up on holiday or in my case a trip out into the country. What is great about this check shirt is that the tie at the back so you can either wear it loose or nip it in at the waist for a more feminine effect.
I accessorised my outfit with a fur Gillet, my loyal khaki Fedora and a navy and white check Handbag.
