Burberry’s pebbled forest green leather shoulder bag, with its dark brown leather trim and gold hardware, speaks to the city girl who’d rather be on horseback or hiking in the woods. Yet for a day downtown she’d pair it with natural touches like a shearling motorcycle jacket, tortoise-shell sunglasses, a cozy knit beanie, and these River Island Ombro Heeled High Top Boots. Peter Jensen’s Oversized shirt dress, belted with Warehouse’s dark belt, keeps the look elegant but relaxed. Of course, for the most natural touch of all, don’t forget to carry a well-thumbed copy of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass.
