Burnt Orange In The Park

Out and about, visiting one of our local parks, named Princess Square, which has been a
public garden since the 1850's. 

The  imposing fountain has been in its pride of place since 1857
and the fish  in the outside ponds have provided much entertainment for
generations of children, including my sister and I and then our children.

A duster coat in burnt orange mimics the
turning colours of the leaves on the many
old giant oak trees.

Adding a wide brim, velvet trim hat that I have had since
the early 1980's, an animal print top, black pants
and suede sling backs, quite high so
sadly only worn when not much walking involved.

The spire in the background is St, Johns Church,one of our 
beautiful early colonial churches.

This fellow is William Pugh, an early physician, who pioneered
anaesthesia here, at the building in the backgound, 
which was St. Johns Hospital, now a private residence.

Here ends today's tour, I enjoyed sharing a 
part of my world with you!

A little glamour, my way, everday.



  1. The splashes of orange are so pretty, Jill. Love the hat too, and the wonderful setting. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

    1. Always a pleasure to join visible Monday, thank you so much for hostessing.

  2. Jill, your ensemlbe is perfectly put together. That combination of pieces I would wear on any given day. Pairing burnt orange with leopard print is a beautiful combination and that jacket is, Oh, so wonderful. But my very favorite item (which I would love to take right off your cute little head) is that stunning hat. You look wonderful in this attire.

  3. Trina, you are so kind, a big thank you for your kind comments. Glad you enjoyed the outfit.

  4. The orange coat is lovely on you and the hat is so stylish! Wonderful place to take pictures. You look great in this outfit.

  5. Thankyou Ann , this shade of orange is a favourite of mine. Our parks are lovely, always good to visit and take pictures.

  6. This warm, rich, elegant shade of orange is sublime on you, dear Jill. Seriously, rarely have I seen it look anywhere near as becoming on a person as it looks on you in these photos. And as a side note, I must mention how much my husband would adore your ensemble, too, as orange is his favourite colour ever.

    Big hugs & many thanks for your lovely comment on yesterday's Italian honeymoon post (I hope your son and his partner have a safe and very enjoyable trip),

  8. What a cool tour ... but you are far and away the most impressive item in the photos! You look fabulous in orange, or coral, or rust ... but not many do! Lucky you. Love the line the heels give you! You just have to wear them until you don't notice discomfort any more ... they look really good. Very chic, Jill !

  9. Jan, thank you for visiting and your generous comments, these are colours I have always liked and revert back to ..Must remember to persevere with the shoes.
