English Countryside in Your Closet

If you want to wear the English countryside look this fall, I bet you probably have some pieces in your closet already that you can start with. Look for comfy sweaters and cardigans in neutrals, pastels, and earth tones. Pull out any items in a “fall/winter” fabric that have fur or animal prints. You might also find suiting separates and sweater vests.

Unfortunately, I used to have a pastel sweater vest with a fair isle pattern and gave it to a thrift store. If you saw my previous post, you’ll remember that knits with a fair isle pattern were on the runway this season. I’m rather irritated that I never gave that sweater vest the appreciation it undoubtedly deserves now.

However, I found lots of other clothes in my closet that can help me jumpstart English countryside inspired outfits.

  1. What I want to know is, will a charming, attractive, single British man ride by on his horse if I stand out in the meadows of Minnesota wearing one of these outfits? If so, I may need to make an investment in my wardrobe.

  2. Absolutely, Robyn! In fact, you’ll look so lovely in your English Countryside attire that ten or more charming, attractive, single British men are likely to ride by on their horses. I daresay, you won’t regret your investment.

    • Hahahaha! Excellent sales technique. Now I get my choice of at least ten studly men. And I’ll have a fabulous wardrobe. What a bargain!
