I had such a wonderful time doing this photo shoot. It was like being in fairyland among the gorgeous Azaleas. My monochrome outfit standing out against the riot of colour.
I am wearing a simple cream dress under my black/cream stripe coat. The coat has been a great purchase this summer. It works with trousers, jeans and dresses. A simple black clutch and statement necklace completes the look.
My cream dress is a few years old, similar at John Lewis and Nordstrom. The coat is from MandS (now sold out) similar at John Lewis and Nordstrom. Black clutch bag similar Nordstrom and The outnet.

The photos were shot at Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park. If you are visiting the UK in the Spring you must must go there. As you can see from the photos the Azaleas are breathtaking.
What a classic, elegant look! I imagine this ensemble would be appropriate for a variety of different occasions. And those azaleas…WOW!
Yes, such a classic city look. And the shoes are perfect, just a little edgy.
So beautiful. I think I am too short for the stripes…but I’m stealing this idea as it’s a little cold in SF in the summer when the fog rolls in.
Great coat! I love jackets and have many to complete an outfit and make it a little classier.
This is so lovely on you. An English rose in a backdrop of azaleas. It’s a look that I will seek out for myself for an upcoming special occasion.
We visit England twice a year, in Lincoln, and there’s a park there that blooms thousands of Rhondadinums in the spring.
Beautiful photos! I love this look and would wear it…the coat is wonderful! You look lovely as always.
