What I wore for a sunny coffee date

Boden summer skirt and breton

Last week, James and I had a free morning together and headed out for a coffee date. It was a lovely sunny day in our beautiful little city. We walked around the market and then headed for coffee at The Old Fire Engine House.

Morning coffee there is a sweet, informal affair where you help yourself to coffee and cakes in the kitchen before finding a spot in the garden to enjoy it. In summer, it’s the perfect English cottage garden to wander in.

Boden summer skirt and denim jacket

I wore my lovely new Boden skirt – an early birthday present from my mum. I love a Boden skirt – and this one is perfect! Full, but not too short and the denim jacket stops it looking too prissy.

What I wore:

T shirt, Boden – past season, but this is basically the same.

Jacket: New Look

Sandals: Clark’s, past season


What I wore: Next dungarees


Last weekend, we had a lovely walk amongst the buttercups at Houghton meadows. The sea of yellow was stunning. I am wearing my new Next dungarees, which I’m still completely in love with. They’re made from the softest, fine denim and are unbelievably comfortable. I’m glad I finally bought into the dungaree trend – they’re really fun and super practical too! We had fun skipping through the meadows and climbing trees, followed by the best cream tea.
