Outfit: Quintessentially British


I haven't posted an outfit in a while so, when we were in the beautiful Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Water last weekend, I thought I'd take some snaps of my summery tourist outfit. However, not everything went to plan, when I realised that the memory card wasn't in my camera! Ultimate blogger nightmare. Hence the low quality phone snaps - even iPhone 6 quality isn't quite good enough for a respectable blog post, it seems.

Josh and I had a rare free weekend so we decided to explore the idyllic Cotswold village right on our doorstep. Despite having lived in Cheltenham for the last 6 years, I haven't ventured very far into the surrounding countryside. Bourton-on-the-Water is a lovely village, stretched along a river running parallel to the high street, which is dotted with quaint gift shops and tea rooms. We happily wandered along in the sunshine, stopping in a pub garden for lunch, followed by more meandering in and out of gift shops. The skies suddenly opened as we left one shop, making us dive for the nearest tea room and stop for a quick pot of tea while we waited for the rain to pass. Luckily it did and the sun promptly returned - good old British weather!

I wore one of my favourite floaty sundresses, which I picked up in H&M a good few years ago now, with my grey hat from New Look. Wearing this hat makes me feel very ladylike, perfect for spending the day in a quintessentially British village. We need to make the most of our lovely local sights, so I have a feeling that Josh and I may be visiting more of The Cotswolds very soon.
