These photos were taken in the impossibly cute town of Saffron Walden in Essex. I can’t tell you what it is I love so much about this place, but every time I go I fall even more in love with the gorgeous town houses, the cosy pubs and the treasure-trove charity shops. It may have something to do with a particularly tasty baked camembert on offer in the Cross Keys.
This look was a bit mix and match (the green top was stolen from my sister’s ebay pile whilst I was at home for the weekend) and I can’t say I’ve ever thought to pair the fur gilet with baggy houndstooth trousers, but it turned out to be one of my favourites. The burgundy Topshop boots were passed on to me last year after I complained that I had no nice boots to wear and mum was feeling generous… quite a result.
I love the way that weekend dressing can be so much more playful than what we’re stuck with during the confines of the working week. Although I have to admit that *ahem* I often take office dressing to the edge of what’s deemed acceptable, it’s great to properly experiment and play about with clothes. It’s a shame that my bedroom tends to resemble a jumble sale once I’ve done so.
