The weekend saw in my pal's 30th and being a Soho House member, we headed off to our favourite of their members locations, Soho Farmhouse in beautiful Oxfordshire to host her celebrations. Opting for a Sunday stay, relaxed country casual was my dress code, so I turned to British darling Joules to kit me out for the day.
Although we are having a bit of an Indian Summer, Sunday was a little chilly when the clouds came over, so it was the first day I have donned boots since the spring. But oh, these boots! (Joules Westbourne boots) I spotted them in store a few weeks ago and knew I had to have them. The classic riding boots with the bronze back add a little twist, making them magical.
So to address the country chic, I teamed try beloved Topshop Joni jeans (which I only discovered this summer and I am in love! They have a super skinny fit, especially round the ankles - I can't stand a baggy ankle, and they are really high waited which is really flattering posts-baby) with this fun brightly checked Lucie shirt from Joules . Luckily it was thin enough fabric to ensure I didn't overheat when the sun came out. When it got a little colder, I donned my light Joules Merriton gilet. I love the high necked collar, which again makes it a little different and when summer does wave farewell I will appreciate the extra neck warmth. Oh and I kept my fave Triwia sunnies to hand at all times!
Love the little Joules Hare!
After a long lazy roast lunch we got settled in the cottage where our group where staying and after a visit from the cocktail van (which was pretty amazing) we settled in for the evening. Although we still managed to celebrate in style, Soho Farmhouse is much more subdued on a Sunday evening than the rest of the weekend where the party is very much in the 'member spaces'.
So we sat in deck chairs sipping cocktails as the sun went down on Meg's twenties enjoying the last of the British summer before we got a little more rowdy and the camera was put away!
The next day was much more chilled, which I'll be sharing some outfit pics with you in the next few days. I ant wait to plan my next trip to my favourite little Oxfordshire home from home!
