 'The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life' - William Morris. 
 After knowing my love for William Morris, Barbour kindly sent me this beautiful quilted jacket, lined with one of my favourite of Morris' patterns, Strawberry Thief. I wore it almost everyday whilst on holiday - for various countryside walks, stopping at a beautiful cottage for afternoon tea and for a rainy day trip to Ludlow castle. The jacket really made the perfect British countryside attire, it felt rather apt to be wearing a piece from such a quintessentially British brand, featuring the design of my favourite British artist. It's such a classic shape and design too, it really fits in with my personal style plus makes me feel ever so ladylike and mature whenever I wear it! I'm slowly settling back in to being back at home, spending time with my family, enjoying my own company (though occasionally feeling a little lonely) and making the most of my free time before I'm back to work. I've got some pretty secondhand pieces and outfits to share with you soon, but for now, I hope you all have a wonderful week! Love, Jazmine.

  4. Such a lovely, relaxed look, Jazz. Barbour jackets - actually, quilted jackets in general - are, as you put it, quintessentially British in style and cut and just wonderful on the whole!

    Best Wishes,

  6. Great jacket, suits you immensely. I find that some outfits make me feel more mature, whenever I wear a blazer I instantly feel more 'grown up' - even though I am being 21 and all! A child at heart

  7. Oh this looks gorgeous on you, you really suit the casual country look! And the pattern is lovely, I remember my old friend used to have William Morris paper all over her old (slightly massive) house and I became very jealous

  39. I've just bought the Liberty X Dr Marten satchel in the Strawberry Thief print and its so gorgeous, you must have a look at it.
    Also, this outfit could look a little 'safe', but you just look ridiculously chic.

  47. Love the jacket, especially because the pattern makes it so attuned to you!
    I recently invested in a Barbour, but of the waxed variety, they make for seriously comfortable out door wear.

  48. I am a self-confessed anti-Barbour (unless it's the Furrow Jacket)but this is stunning, the William Morris print gives it such an elegant feel.
    Beautiful
