Last week, I took the train, all on my own for all of 8 minutes, into Cheltenham to have a catch up with my lovely pal, Prema. The weather was pretty awful so we hurried into Starbucks, because coffee is always necessary, and had a good old chin wag. If you’re interested, we talked blogging, “boys“, how wearing new Topshop shoes when you’re traveling/walking all day is most certainly not a good idea and not understand makeup counter ladies that force items on to you.
Prema’s a bit of a whizz when it comes to an SLR, and when I say a bit of a whizz, read hella amazing, seriously, check out her Instagram here. So of course, she’d brought her beast of a Cannon with her and began snapping some shots. All photo credit in this post goes to the lovely lady herself but all of the awful editing was me, sorry.
The weather didn’t look like it was going to get any better so we braved the wind and the rain and headed down Promenede, which of course meant passing House of Fraser, who have their stationary section in the window, so we both had a bit of an ohemgeeee look at it all moment, before heading through to Imperial Gardens. Quite possibly my favourite spot in Cheltenham, it would have totally been 100% sweeter if the sun was out, but in all honesty, we think the world was working against us that day, have you ever had your double bagged carrier bag split open through the bottom at a train station and then have to pack the contents into your handbag and a bin bag? No? Well, poor Prema has.
Prema kindly offered to shoot some ootd photos for me, what a babe let me tell ya. I know, I know.. I’m wearing the same coat and scarf as I was in my last outfit post, but I thought these shots were super cute so I had to use them!
Coat – Charity Shop(Next) | Scarf – Mother’s | Skirt – Primark | Boots – Red Hearing at Debenhams
My mum treated me to these gorgeous Red Hearing Chelsea boots a couple of weeks ago, as it was full on stressing her out that I was still walking around in dolly shoes in October, bless her soul! Also available in light brown, these boots are £29 but currently have 20% off.
I love how smart this look feels, it’s pretty much made up of my winter staples and it’s super easy to wear! Switch up the blue skater skirt with any other skirt or dress and that’s me pretty much sorted for the rest of the year!
Have you visited Cheltenham before? What’s your favourite spot? Let me know!
