If you've not been there before, it's well worth the trip. It takes about 20 minutes on the train from central London and before you know it you're in a complete oasis of historic buildings with a crazy art deco interior and enormous gardens that have plenty of perfect picnic spots and opportune moments for outfit photos.
Which brings me on nicely to these pictures. I made a promise to myself to be more present on the blog and wanted to include the odd outfit related post. With the help of the lovely Chloe and some rather tasty floral backgrounds, I managed a few shots that don't look unbelievable awkward (just a little bit awkward, haha). So thank you Chloe.
Clearly I won't be the next new fashion model, but I don't think there are enough blogs with size 12/14 fashion on and so I'll be adding some in from time to time.
As you can see, I was SO not ready for summer yet. We were spending the afternoon outside in the middle of May, which for me meant a floaty, 70s inspired Zara dress, some M&S Chelsea Boots and a leather biker jacket just in case it got cold. Which it didn't. Fully regret wearing tights. I also brought along my trusty Burberry bag (thank you God for Bicester Village) which managed to hold about two tons of crap and still look nice.
I love this dress as it skims any bumpy bits nicely, but is still fitted enough to show off the fact that you have a shape. Part of me wishes I had bought two of them so I could have one as an emergency spare, but let's face it, that's probably not a clever way to stock my wardrobe!
Anyhow, this has turned into a bit of a ramble, so thanks for bearing with me. More fashion/outfits to come over the next few weeks...
