Smart Style: Hunting Plaid

shirt and shoes: c/o Bank Fashion, pants: c/o CAbi, earrings (exact): Kendra Scott, bracelet (exact): Stella & Dot, cuff: gift, sunnies (option): RayBan


Last week before the season premiere of Downton Abbey, I watched a little special on the castle at which the show is filmed.  I found it SO very intriguing.  It amazes me that there is not only one, but at least two people who manage game on the estate.  Their smart tweed suits looked so refined...it made me chuckle how proper the English are.
Cut to what Americans wear while hunting...Duck Dynasty anyone?

Anyway, this outfit reminded me of that documentary because it was possibly reminiscent of hunting pheasants along with my trusty Weimaraner, while gracefully carrying my shotgun and sporting fabulous, yet understated, hunting boots.  And the elbow patches are for good measure...I mean, what's a hunting outfit without elbow patches!?  Surely, they have some function.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.  Is it too early to be thinking Valentine's Day?  Tomorrow I'll post a segment I did on our local news with a couple of Vday craft ideas...it'll be here before you know it!

  9. Hah! I love your comparison to an English manor and Duck Dynasty! It's so true! I love being in Europe because I feel like I fit in a little more when it comes to fashion. Then when I come back to the States I am reminded of how much I love my leggings and floppy sweatshirt and my cares of fashion totally disintegrate. (:

    I should watch that special on the Downton castle - I tried to visit it when I was in the UK last year, but the tours fill up so fast!
