Today there was a slight chill in the air heralding the arrival of Autumn , the glorious yellow tree Mother
Nature at her best.
To welcome the change I chose a cropped short sleeved berry coloured jacket with contrasting blanket stitch trim from Bec and Bridge , another great find from Return to Splendour. I wore the jacket over my
grey Paula Ryan dress , that I have worn many times over Summer.
Grey on grey , this dress will come travelling with me as I can layer both under and over , making it a very
versatile garment and will earn its place in the suitcase.
The interesting building in the background with the folly is a private home.
Time to bring out my ankle boots, these are from Wonders, a Spanish brand , purchased at a closing sale
just before Christmas.
This is my last post before we leave home.I hope to continue blogging while travelling if things go to plan,
possibly using the Blogger app.If the quality is not up to scratch I apologise in advance.

Hi, a first time comment. I love your dress, and the purple jacket looks very appropriate over the top for more of a fun feel. I imagine the dress goes well, dressed up or down. Have a good holiday. Regards Trish
Thank you Trish for taking the time to comment. This dress has proved to be a winner as it does indeed dress up or down.I am looking forward to our trip.
Nice jacket! Really love its colour and that contrasting trim detail. All the best with your traveling plans and hopefully you will be able to blog.
Many thanks Olga , it was both the colour and details that I loved about this little jacket. I do hope I can continue blogging while I am away.
Hope your travels are safe and fabulous. Love this combination, including the great booties. xox
Thank you Patti for your kind words and for hosting Visible Monday.
Love the jacket, I'm very partial to cropped jackets! 🙂
Thanks so much Laurie, we both share a love of little cropped jackets.
I adore your plummy jacket with the contrast stitching, the grey dress is gorgeous and those boots look so stylish and comfy. We had snow this morning in Worcestershire, so no short sleeves here. Enjoy your holiday xx
Many thanks , the details are what sold me this jacket, I knew it would be a winner.I have been keeping an eye on the temperatures and they are still a little cool, so warm layers for me.
I hope you have a wonderful trip! Those places sound fantastic and I hope to see lots of pictures!
Thank you Joni, you certainly will see photos, I know I will get carried away.
I can see why you like this dress: it really is versatile and can change character completely with accessories and jackets. I look fprward to reading about your travel adventures!
