London Part 1: Me Necklace Over Me Coat


Translation of the post title: One is wearing one’s lovely necklace over one’s coat. The Queen told me that when we went for tea at the weekend.

So we got back from our once or twice yearly weekend in London on Monday. Although I’ve lived in Devon for the best part of ten years I still call myself a Londoner, plus Mr Summers is a born-and-bred London geezer so we feel like we’re back home whenever we go. Especially with the amount of rain there was in Covent Garden…!

So as already mentioned I wore one of my statement necklaces (see it also worn here and here) over my coat – I saw this on the catwalk a few years ago (can’t remember which designer) and thought it was a brilliant idea – why hide them underneath?

Thanks to the gorgeous Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget) for featuring me in her monthly How I Wear My: Statement Necklace!

    That is a lovely coat, and I am really loving the statement necklace!

    That is such a terrific idea. I hate having to cover up my jewelry in the winter and this way I wouldn't have to. Brilliant.

    I saw your look posted on 'Trending through the Decades' and had to stop by and tell you how much I like it. That coat is seriously fabulous and I love your rolled up jeans. You have the prettiest hair too!
