With Christmas now upon us and all the prep for the big day done my thoughts turn to what awaits in the beautifully wrapped presents that lie under the tree. So whether it’s a gift from a loved one or a present to yourself here are some of my favourites right now that I think any ‘Quintessentially’ Country Lady would be lucky to receive this year.
I want to start with one of my all time favourites Hyde and Hare who produce ethically sourced, unique Cowhide bags. Whether it’s a Clutch Bag, Handbag or Weekend Bag you are after they have you covered.
The Buckleigh is a firm favourite of mine and is definitely on my wish list this year. This oversized clutch has room for all of the essentials and is perfect for taking you from a day in the office to a night out with the ladies. Their new chocolate collection is out of this world!
What Christmas list isn’t complete without jewellery?! I have completely fallen in love with the timeless classics and handmade designs that County Equestrian Jewellers offer. If you are an Equestrian and Country Sports lover then this jewellery is for you!
On my wish list at the moment is the beautiful Horse Leg and Hoof Bangle and matching ring. Both handmade in Silver they will compliment any outfit whether it is your best tweeds or evening dress.
Next up we have House of Cheviot. On my Christmas list every year are socks; whether they are shooting socks or for general wear I always need (want) more. This is the go to brand for luxury Merino wool or Cashmere socks for all occasions.
If you are after your very own pair of elegant, classic and Spanish made boots then you have found them. The Spanish Boot Company offer a wide range of Spanish boots in a range of sizes and even made to measure for any Country Lady to enjoy. If like me you struggle with finding boots to fit your legs then this is the brand for you.
No Classically Country outfit is complete without a pair of Spanish Riding Boots and the new Two Tone Suede Boots shown here is in Caramel and Green are just stunning! However if you are looking for some beautiful boots for in the field then the Leather Spanish Riding Boots, shown here in Brown with the tread sole, are fantastic; put some Sno-Seal on and you are good to go.
The boots come in a range of soles to suit your needs. They have flat leather or rubber for the elegant day to day wears and thick rubber tread for hard wearing out in the field. There really is a boot to suit any occasion.
I really have fallen in love with these boots. The interchangeable tassels help to create a whole new look so you will never get that ‘same old boots’ feeling with these beauties!
Lastly we have the quintessentially British and timelessly elegant brand Holland and Cooper. They offer statement pieces with a contemporary twist on classic tweed. This brand is instantly recognisable by their high quality tweed, leather or suede adorned with luxurious fur. Designed by Jade Holland Cooper these pieces are synonymous with British luxury.
Below are two of my favourite capes. One I feel is more suitable for day to day wear and the other is more of a statement piece for a special occasion but both really are truly outstanding and would be a great addition to any Country Lady’s wardrobe.
So on the left is the Gold Label Fur Cape in Tawny and on the right is the Tweed and Fur Cape with Detachable Collar in Tawny. Both are handmade in Britain from some of the finest wool, adjoined with their trademark gold buttons and trimmed with British Leather or Suede. Finished off with soft luxurious raccoon fur these capes will add a bit of timeless style to your wardrobe.
So that’s it from me, I hope you all have an amazing Christmas and if you get any of these beautiful items this year you really are a lucky lady. Merry Christmas!
