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.

My Spring Wishlist


Spring wishlist 2015

1. Dungarees / 2. Breton t-shirt / 3. Farmyard dress

The dungaree thing has been around for a few years now, but this is the first time I’ve really wanted to try it. I think they’d look fab with a stripy Breton…I just need to take the plunge and order some! I’ve also been admiring this dress for a while – it’s just so pretty. From a distance it looks like a classic, 30s-style tea dress, but close up you realise it’s printed with tractors and farm animals. After years spent tractor spotting with the boys, I just love this! With dungarees and tractor prints, there’s a risk of looking like a five-year-old, but the sunshine’s very forgiving isn’t it?

While we’re thinking about and lovely new things, here are some other things I’d love to get my mitts on this Spring…
