Hèrmes Cheval de Mer

I'm so excited to share with you a gift that my husband got me for my birthday... an Hèrmes scarf!  It is my first Hèrmes so, naturally, I was ecstatic when he gave it to me.

It is a beautiful, cream-coloured, silk, 36"x36" scarf featuring a prominent blue ship with the obligatory Hèrmes equine features.  

I can't wait to wear it at the beach and on the family dock this summer!

Burberry Autumn/Winter 2012

Oh. my. gosh.  I cannot even contain myself. The new Burberry Autumn/Winter 2012 womenswear collection is to die for.  The coats are spectacular.  They look so warm and comfy! (I can't believe I am considering the "warmth" factor since summer has only just started)

My favourite is definitely the first coat.  I love the colours, the feminine bow and those extra-large pleated pockets are very appealing.  They almost have me wishing for winter!
