Blue Leopard Print Skinnies & The Rolling Hills Of Devon

Castle Drogo, Drewsteignton, Devon, UK
Leopard skinnies & a furry parkaThese lovely pictures (I'm referring to the location and my photographer's skills) were taken in the Teign Valley in Devon, only a half hour's drive from where we live. It was the most amazing landscape I've seen since we went to the Grand Canyon two years ago (it definitely compared in a smaller scale, British kind of way). It's very naughty when these beautiful places are right on your doorstep and you've never been there before. Must. Do. Better.

We spent the day exploring the last castle to be built in the UK (Castle Drogo in Drewsteignton, built about a century ago, seen on top of the hill in the next-to-last picture), and the gorgeous hills and walks in the area. It was comfies on for all the walking - I debuted my new leopard print skinnies and got the layers on for the cold; although it was beautifully sunny, the parka was needed for a little sleep in the sun on the warm rocks. I thought I'd mention the ON/OFF brooches... there's no hidden meaning, I just liked them - simple as that. Interpret as you wish...!

  1. I Voted! Also I don't do animal print at all, I think it looks weird on me. But those skinnies...boy howdy! They may convert me, they look fantastic!

  9. Yes, I enjoyed the change of Vote gathering tactics. You need a baby kissing post before it's all over!!! :o) Fun brooches are such a simple way to add interest to an outfit. Sadly, I'm afraid to wear mine right now with my little guy on my hip so often, but when he's walking my brooches are coming back out to play! :o)

  13. Very nice. I immediately noticed your brooch. Fun. Brings some laughter into an outfit. Always good. No reason to get too serious.
    Looking great as ever. Like your scarf with the outfit as well.

  14. These photos are so pretty! I love this look Catherine, the brights teamed with the neutrals is such a beautiful and complimentary pallet and I adore your scarf. :)

    Take care,

  15. Love the whole outfit and also love the setting!

    I have a technical question for you. I have voted already, from this PC. We have WIFI at home, but it's connected to the modem and therefore the PC. Would I be able to use my tablet separately to vote for you? I have to connect to the WIFI to use it.

    Good luck!

  16. Blue and brown can be a very chic combination and you've proven that. I'm really taken with your "old" boots paired with those skinnies!

    Voted for you several weeks back - best of luck! ;-)

  17. Loving your blue leopard skinnies; you're inspiring me to go on a diet and get some exercise so I can wear something like them! The Grand Canyon is in my back yard and I try to get there once a year. Would like to visit your spectacular Teign Valley!

  23. It's funny how sometimes we miss the treasures on our own doorstep I know. The blue leopard skinny's are fab - I can't wait to see some spring outfits with these as the weather warms up. Thanks for sharing with WW xo

  24. Love all the different shades of blue in your outfit. Sadly, I missed the voting part since it's past the closing date. In any case, I'm visiting Devon end of May and will definitely put Teign Valley on the list of places to visit!
