If you'd like to incorporate a subtle bit of Liberty into your wardrobe why not take a look at a vintage Liberty scarf? I bought mine on ebay in 2010 and it was not expensive, about thirty dollars or so, but it is thick and luxurious and the colours are gorgeous.
Cobalt blue, violet, plum, chambray gray and white all conspire to form the basis of a colour story for that imaginary trip down south we're having.
My love for my bargain scarf was so great that I have found myself buying pieces to wear with it on various sales over the last couple of years. Not sure if that makes the scarf such a bargain in the end!

Notice the chambray trim on the inside of the J.Crew jacket.
|The scarf with the navy tweed.|
|I would add in a white blouse to wear with the skirt and jacket.|
Also a small handbag, maybe in a silver tone, to complement the cool tones.
|Eileen Fisher merino boatneck sweater.|
Pair the skirt with a sweater for an easy outfit.
|J.Crew merino sweater dress 2008.|
Adding the jacket mixes texture, but in the same tones.
|Kate Spade jacket and matching skirt.|
J.Crew Martha necklace and pearl earrings.
You'll notice the lining of the jacket, above, matches the full silk skirt (below). They used a polyester for the jacket lining rather than the same silk: that would have been a luxurious touch.

A simple outfit with Repetto flats and a white tee shirt.
On my imaginary vacation I am packing up a plum lipstick and adding in white basics: canvas sneakers, those white tee-shirts (both short and long-sleeved) and that white blouse. A white handbag would be pretty but even on an imaginary trip I'm sure I'd ruin it!
Enjoy your Friday my friends,
