Walking in the French countryside

Going for a walk in France. DKNY coat



At this time of year I like to get out into the countryside for a good bracing walk. It has been a bit too damp and misty this year in the South of France for walking on the beaches, which I normally love. However we are surrounded by some stunning fields, hills and vineyards which are very beautiful at the moment with all the wonderful mellow winter colours.



Walking in the French countryside



My waterfall coat is some years old by DKNY. A very similar one here at Asos.

I find that a soft waterfall style coat or jacket is easy to wear and can look dressy or casual depending on accessories etc. It seems to suite my “pear shaped” figure as the fabric drapes softly over the hips.

I have teamed it here with my pink silk blouse from Uniqlo, I bought mine in the summer; the winter version is a slightly warmer tone.  For some extra colour I have added a black\pink scarf; which from memory I bought in the St. Tropez market some years ago.

    France seems to be much more scenic than north Texas this time of year. Still waiting for the snow drifts to melt. I can get out to fill the bird feeder, which the cardinal seems to appreciate. Enjoy your vacation—I love your coat.

    I do love long walks in the French countryside, particularly after a substantial déjeuner with my family. Une promenade digestive is absolutely a necessity. You do look lovely!

    Cheers and Happy New Year, Josephine,
