i’ve always loved amanda cutter brooks’ style.. and i love her blog and her book (buy here) by the same name. amanda has a fresh look, there is something very classic, yet modern and cool about her style… and she is always a fixture on my weekly MDS ‘Week of Chic’ best dressed lists.
a few years ago amanda left her position as fashion director of barney’s and moved with her family to oxfordshire, england, where her husband, artist christopher brooks, was from. i’m not certain, but i think they just wanted to slow down, have their kids experience this relaxed country lifestyle and up-bringing, and from what i can tell they all love horses.
amanda has the coolest instagram account. i always love her posts of the country side, their home, the farm, their animals… for all of us, it’s like a little escape… all seems peaceful, serene, calm and real… and she always uses the coolest filters on her instagram photographs…sometimes their so pretty i gasp..
the brooks’ home was featured last year on the guardian via the selby. i saved the photographs thinking it would be a perfect spring feature. yesterday, i saw an image of amanda’s far away home, of course i had to repost it with the instagram repost app, and i just thought to myself, “amanda- i love you style!” i think you all will too! enjoy!
