Downton Abbey & Ralph Lauren a Perfect Match

I have always been a huge fan of Ralph Lauren, I love his classic looks and always find something in every collection, especially Fall, to wear. 

To me Ralph Lauren represents an old English, "country pile", relaxed elegance. Pair that with Downton Abbey which swept through  England and now America and you have a match made in heaven, fashion heaven I guess.

I am on the edge of my chair just thinking about Downton Abbey this weekend. I cannot believe it is the last episode of the season. I guess if there is any consolation it is Christmas at the Abbey and all of my English blog friends said this episode is the best of the season and ties up several loose ends. I hope tying up the loose ends does not include Mr. Bates going to jail! I wonder if we will see a bit more of  Patrick? Will Mary and William progress or will they be held back by Sir Richard? Whatever happens I am sure that it will be fabulous.

What are your plans for the weekend? Will you be relaxing? Or do you have chores? Traveling or staying put? I think I will be doing some relaxing, some work, and a bit of traveling; sure to be a busy weekend that is for sure.

Whatever you do my friends, I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Be safe and enjoy.


  1. Hi Elizabeth......these pictures are worhty of stopping me in my tracks, absolutely breathtaking! RL can do NO wrong in my book, I too am a huge huge fan. Love his vision and how he never compromises!
    I have yet to spend the time watching/following Downton Abbey but hopefully soon, its quite the rage!!
    We have dinner plans, are seeing my son off to a ski trip in Utah with his friend and family and hopefully Sunday wil be a day of pure relaxation! I need it....wishing the same for you.

  2. I can't tell you how much I love this collection, there aren't the words! I'm excited for you to watch the outcomes in DA. Looking forward to your reaction. Staying warm and happy here and had a wonderful Valentine Day - you?
    Have a wonderful weekend dear one!

  3. We have missed them all! BUT Ruben is going to order them on Amazon and then the fun will begin for us this summer. HELLO THERE DEAREST! Do know that I always come late due to school, but how MARVELOUS are all of these fashions!!!! HUGS TO YOU! Anita

  4. Hello darling Elizabeth ~
    Yes, I love the world that
    RL fashion evokes. I truly
    would wear any of the black
    dresses that you featured.
    I didn't know that this Sunday
    will be the last DA, Season 2!
    I really savored last week's two
    hour episode, breaking it down
    into two viewings.

    It's a long weekend and the boys
    are off to Colorado, so it's just me
    and MY Elizabeth, enjoying a girl's
    weekend. A lot of home and a few
    outings; the perfect balance that we
    both love!

    Happy Saturday,
    xx Suzanne
