My Ever Natural Escape

emu8 emu7 I’m a country girl, and it’s not something I’m ashamed of. When I head to London for meetings I have no idea where I’m going, wheres cool to get coffee or even what zone I’m in half the time. I grew up in a leafy cul du sac in idyllic Hertfordshire with my parents and despite my goals and aspirations to make something of myself, City life simply never appealed to me. When it came to buying our own house, we ventured further into the country side in Buckinghamshire and now our home is a stones throw from one of the most beautiful spots in our village.

This is where I feel at home, I’m able to escape here as if there is this invisible boarder, much like the zones of the London underground, that separate my work and blog life from my curled up on the sofa and autumnal walks in the park, life.

It may not be my forever home, where we live currently. I have dreams of open fires and original features mixed with modern accents but until those dreams become a reality I’m happy to slip on some snugglies and head out into to crisp Autumn air to get more of the countryside living.

I pull on my favourite pair of denim jeans which have seen better days but I can’t bring myself to part with them,I cosy into some premium knitwear and then seal in the warmth with a Shearling coat, pair of gloves and the most naturally warm & comfortable pair of waterproof, yes waterproof, sheepskin boots, this is my Ever Natural Escape.

    I love this whole look Lydia, can’t believe the boots are waterproof! Like you, I also live a stones throw away from the countryside & National Forest & with 3 dogs I do loads of walking!
    Hugs Adele xoxo

    n’awww you look so cosy! I’m the total opposite to you, the idea of living in the countryside scares me! I’m very much a city kinda gal who likes to have all the shops and restaurants at my doorstep 😀 x

    • lydia 10th November 2015 / 9:54 am

      I am completely enchanted when I’m in the big city but I love returning home to the quiet 🙂 x

    I’m a country girl too, but I have to live in the big city. Sometimes it’s suffocating and sometimes I really miss all countryside… feelings, state of mind.

    • lydia 10th November 2015 / 9:56 am

      I hear you girl x

  11. Victoria 6th November 2015 / 6:56 pm

    I absolutely adore this outfit! Winter clothes are always so cosy looking and I love just piling on the layers! where did you get your jeans? i’ve been looking for a pair this exact colour and fit for a while

    • lydia 10th November 2015 / 9:48 am
