An Outfit Fit For Visiting a Castle

Goodness outfit posts with floral accessories are abundant on my blog it appears.  However this one has a bonus castle.  Now that has you tempted to read doesn't it! 

In his youth Mr Him of Anna Mutton Years fame,  my hubs, used to work in Arundel and he decided that we should have a Date Day to visit his old stomping ground . I don't know when just he and I last had a Date Day, or went to Arundel. 

In honour of the date I decided to wear my second loved jacket that Mr Him bought me in the South of France (new) 15 years ago.  I call this second loved, but by me.  Up until last year I had abandoned the jacket as it was too last year. I mean look at the collar.    Now I can wear it with pride as a vintage boho item.

The jacket has a second life, in my life.  Be warned those that Marie Kondo their closets to nothing.  These items cost you hard earned cash. Do not abandon without proper consideration. 

I wore a blush work blouse under the jacket in an attempt to make use of my office wardrobe. Yes I know, blush again. 

It was good to get the old ankles out. You can see my thrifted Boden  leather bag in this shot more clearly.

My trainers are new from Boden. I thought the bees were cute and a nod to the white footwear trend whilst being a future staple for my closet.  

Trainers Boden 

I wore these for the first time this particular day and found them very comfortable albeit having loosened the laces a tad a lot.  They arrived quite tightly laced.  I also did wear blister plasters to protect my heels, and socks as it was first wear.  Not trendy I know, but...

I love the detail on my jacket. It's such a shame that I hid this in my wardrobe for so many years.  Do you have gems hidden?  If so I urge you to unearth them. 

This is the photo I was taking crouched down like this. Wehad gone to the castle to see the tulip display.  I love this colour.  Perfect co-ordination for my jacket, haha.  

More tulips up the moat bank.  

We popped inside the chapel and I rather admired the ceiling. Do you ever look up when you are out and about?

The outfit is not one that will make headlines but it was comfortable and casual.
