Here are some pictures from Abi, Jackie and my trip to Cambridge last Friday. It wasn't the best day to go as the weather was gloomy and rainy, but we had it planned for a while so decided to go anyway.
We had so much fun - scoffing scones at Auntie's, sipping giant hot chocolates, guzzling fruit cider, rummaging through the haberdashery section of John Lewis, not to mention taking in the glorious and historic sights of Cambridge and it's Colleges. We also decided to partake in one of Cambridge's traditions - punting down the river, turns out the sellers do not like you asking around for better deals - we almost got caught up in an argy bargy!
Typically when the time came to go punting the heavens had opened and it was raining, we decided to push on and go punting anyway. Our poor guide was drenched through and through, our seats were soggy which meant soggy bums, and not many photo's were taken due to the rain. It was still so much fun and by the end of the tour the sun came out to play and it was really warm, though we all had wet patch bums for the remainder of the day.
Before we went home we stopped off in Bill's the most colourful and cosy cafe/store I've been to. The main menu was desserts only, though they have boards up with a small selection lunch and dinner courses, the walls were stuffed full pretty looking jams, colourful and cute packaged juices and many more beautiful looking condiments - I highly recommend you take a visit if there is a Bill's near you.
I definitely went dressed for the weather:
Cardigan - Vintage/Ebay | Top - H&M | Skirt - Joy | Necklace - Accessorize | Tights, Ring & Boots - Primark
My chunky knit cardigan kept me nice and warm - I'm kinda glad I can start wearing them again, though very sad the Summer seems to have come and gone in a blink of an eye. In my bag I also had a rain mac and umbrella so stayed reasonably dry for the day except for my toes and butt!
Has anyone else been on any recent adventures?
