Bernie Dexter Jeans for a Walk In The Welsh Hills

This wasn't meant to be an outfit post.  I'm not wearing anything particularly exciting here, but it was a beautiful day when we took one of our Sunday strolls along the top of the hill behind our house.  So, this is really about the pretty scenery, with a few photos thrown in of what I was wearing for those that need an outfit-fix!  It's been a busy time (again) and I just didn't get around to having a specific shoot this week, so you'll have to make do with this rather casual ensemble of jeans, trusty Clarks brogues, and a cosy jacket.  It's a typical weekend outfit for a day spent walking, tidying the house, and doing a supermarket shop. 

I need to talk a little bit about the jacket though.  I picked it up in a local charity shop, I think it was £5, which is a lot by my usual standards, but it has faux fur.  I love faux fur.  It's always so cosy to have a faux fur collar to nuzzle into when faced with a chill wind, and it increases the glamour factor measurably.  I think it originally would have had faux fur cuffs as well, which is taking glamour to another level!  Such a shame they were missing.

So there you go, a very down-to-earth 'real' post with windswept hair to show that despite having a blog I am indeed a real person and don't just waft around the Welsh hills in silk gowns.  Well, not all the time at least.

I'll try and increase the glamour for next week's outfit post though.  I'll see what I can pull out of my magic wardrobe to show you all.  I wonder what you're all in the mood for?

  1. Such a beautiful place to go walking! Great practical outfit too, that jacket is such a good find and the Bernie Dexter jeans look great - I have a couple of Bernie jeans and after a few years of wearing them they still going strong! Faux fur does add extra glamour and warmth x

  2. Your jacket was a really good buy at £5. I am a charity shop addict and buy far more clothes than I need in charity shops but I just can't resist a bargain!

    Every time I see you in your Bernie Dexter jeans makes me want to buy a pair but I have not yet got around to it.

  5. The fastenings on that jacket are really unusual - a super complement to the furry collar. It's great to see an everyday stylish outfit.

  8. That jacket is a great find! Too bad it doesn't still have the cuffs.
    And, what!? You don't go around getting your floor length hems "6 inches deep in mud" all the time? ;)

  9. I like casual outfit posts like these as well :) Your jacket looks quite nice even though it is missing faux fur cuffs. I love fur details as well, but faux fur often makes my neck itch so it needs to be in a place where it won't scratch me. I'd love to have a genuine fur collar on some coat, but I don't think it's going to happen, because 1. I don't want to support animal cruelty 2. too expensive. I think the only way for it to work is that if I'd miraculously find a perfect vintage coat for a reasonable price, but let's he honest, that isn't going to happen either. Anything that suits my taste is usually beyond my budget limitations. :)

  10. I love a bit of fake fur and, as we live in the UK we get to wear it all year round - it's perfect for festivals! Gorgeous scenery, how lovely to have it on your doorstep. xxx
