Today’s post is all about my British fashion blog and burgundy and houndstooth outfit. This is quite a country heritage outfit kind of look which fits right in where I live in the UK countryside and on my blog where I show British country and lifestyle clothing.

I have been running the blog for a while now and love to show you different kinds of wearable looks that can fit into a casual lifestyle.

The coat is from Zara and is a new addition to my winter wardrobe. I love the colours in the coat with the houndstooth being burgundy and navy which are two of my favourite winter colours!

I am wearing a burgundy long sleeved tee underneath and my Boden High Rise Super Skinny waxed jeans. I have finished off the look with my Brown Chelsea Boots from AllSaints. There is a real mix of autumn tones in this outfit.

It’s very cold here now and this coat although feels light weight is really warm due to it’s wool content. I think it is a classic and well put together outfit. I hope you enjoy the burgundy and houndstooth outfit post. let me know what you think in the comments section below.

    Great that you picked the place you live at to match your clothing style ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You actually look like one of the royals on their “leisure day in the countryside” pictures, British perfection. At last judged by a German…
