Spending sunny evenings on the river (in between the seemingly daily torrential downpours). Channeling a 50s Palm Springs babe in gobstopper jewels, glitter and sunny mimosa nails. Dates at the ice cream parlour with my gal pal. Celebrating the Clever Boyfriend’s academic achievements (and the news that we will be Cambridge-based for another 5 years). Cocktail hour. Adorning my wrist with new jewelled treasures. Mulberry bow heels and floral trousers. Afternoons spent lazing in secret gardens. Transforming vintage jewels with a DIY splash of neon. Channeling cat lady chic with Charlotte Olympia Kitty heels and Paul & Joe’s darling Cat Collection beauty. Saturday morning walks along the college backs. London wearing its best Union Jack bunting in celebration of our Her Majesty. Collecting vintage Coronation souvenirs. Fragrant garden rose blooms in Jubilee tea caddies. My favourite things about English style. The Prime Minister’s famous door at Number 10 Downing Street. Pottering in Cambridge’s vintage bookshops. Taking a break from the office in the rose gardens of Westminster Abbey. Shoes, glorious shoes at Jimmy Choo HQ. A trip to the theatre with the Clever Boyfriend (and that magical moment when the lights dim and the orchestra strikes up). Continuing my list of ’30 Things to do Before I’m 30′ and embracing the pure opulence of a Cambridge May Ball (tuxedos and silk dresses, new shoes, fireworks, dancing and champagne until dawn). Exploring the mansion-lined streets of Maida Vale and the canals of Little Venice with Dearne and Anna. Strawberry cocktails on the waterways at The Summerhouse. Being reunited with my favourite fashion gal pal Nicolette for a week of adventures all over London. Back to back afternoon tea at Laduree with Laetitia, Charlotte and my favourite PR girls. My first trip to Wimbledon for strawberries and cream and terrific tennis. A trip to Hampshire for quality time in the countryside with Amanda.
Wishing you all a delightful July!
Love, Miss B xx
