You know things are going well when you receive hot tips from fellow bloggers on the best places to shop in town. I have to thank Susie @The Mill House and Sarah @SEMIEXPAT IN OZ for their recent shopping suggestions. As a result, I was a woman on a mission Sunday morning. I hit the stores in Guildford (Surrey, UK) and came home with the warmest winter coat on the face of the planet from Musto and two beautiful silky and warm cashmere tops from Brora. I had never heard of either store before and have since managed to sign up for every piece of communication known to man, woman and child from each store.
Guildford has a lovely shopping area set along cobblestone streets with a number of great shops to choose from. Every corner, every alley, every nook and cranny has a wonderful surprise at the end of it.
This is just a sample of the many lovely items at Brora. I managed to find (on sale) two beautiful tops which I like to call a robins egg blue (arctic by the stores definition, I like mine better!) and the other in oatmeal (sounds better than beige).
I guess this means I am starting to settle into life in Surrey. I am thinking about the climate and how to make my way through it. My heart now skips a beat when I spot the perfect boots for their practicality...I shall not digress except to say that I am absolutely in love with these boots from Dubarry of Ireland. Anyone know where I can pick up a pair on sale????
PS...off to Paris this weekend and have already had a great suggestion
from Michael @THE SPICE OF LIFE for Thé des Pluies candles. Yes!
