A glorious late summer day was a good 

excuse for a drive and an opportunity to

spend time by the Tamar River in my OBI

watermelon jacket.

My cream, grey and white

 fedora was a must. 

As was my favourite bag, 

by Spencer & Rutherford ,purchased

many moons ago.

A bracelet and 

fake pearls also enjoyed the view.

We discovered

 these cottages along the way.

The back of my jacket

and hat, enjoying the

peace of the river.

I hope you

 have enjoyed seeing a small

glimpse of my part of the world.

    Ohh! Jill … love that jacket on you. How flattering. We don't always think about back as often as front when we're styling, but this is perfection. Good for you!
