Once upon a time in England…
“This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.”
-Richard III, Shakespeare
After driving through the rolling hills, passing stone-built villages, stately homes, and breathtaking gardens, we arrived at our destination for part two of our UK holiday. Finally, we were in the English countryside! We stayed at No 131 in Cheltenham, a traditional Georgian-style hotel in the most bucolic setting. I felt like I was home! I packed accordingly for typical weather in England, which means blustery rainy weather, but I was pleasantly surprised when we experienced unseasonably warm temperatures! But that didn’t stop me from wearing my favorite trench coat. If you’ve read some of my previous posts you know that I LOVE a good trench. I have been obsessed with a particular designer whose coats, blazers, sweaters, boots, and bags are just incredible! So much so that I made a very special trip to visit this very special flagship store.
The brand is Holland Cooper whose founder, Jade Holland Cooper, designs luxurious clothing with beautiful fabrics made in England the old fashioned way. These trench coats exude luxury but intertwined with functionality, and can best be described as “country chic.” Have a look at their social media page and you’ll see what I mean. @Hollandcooperclothing @jadehollandcooper Hollandcooper.com
I bought this limited edition full length Marlborough trench coat, a cult classic, among a few other must have’s (I told you I was obsessed!). No trip to the Cotswolds would be complete without a visit to this fabulous store, the merchandising, the selection, and the service were outstanding! A huge thank you to Ella for her vast amount of product knowledge and stylish input. I spent over two hours with her and she was kind, patient, and genuine. I will be back!
