A couple of weekends ago, Jack and I drove to Runnymede in Surrey. It was a relatively quick and straight forward drive down, I’d say about half an hour from our house! Not only is Runnymede a pretty sight, despite the lack of sunshine on this particular day, but it’s full of history too. Runnymede is best known as the site at which the sealing of the Magna Carta took place, pretty cool hey? Their Magna Carta memorial is pretty beautiful and you can catch a glimpse of it in one of Jack’s vlogs right here.
We walked around for a couple of hours, through meadows of tall grass and down hills accompanied by cows, real big cows. I chose to wear this faux jumper/shirt combo top as it’s thin enough to be cool when the sun does shine but as it’s long sleeved, it keeps the heat in when you need it to! I picked it up in Primark back in February and I actually wore it to a job interview! (I got the job so the shirt must’ve been part of the reason, right?) I love the casual vibe it has with the “shirt” hanging out from the bottom and of course, the collar!
Cheesy but hey, here’s my handsome man! *Insert heart eye emoji here* Something else that I thought was pretty cool is that there is a John F. Kennedy memorial in it’s own little garden. To get to the memorial you have to climb 50 steps, cute or what? We sat up here for a little while whilst the sun was actually out and I managed to snap this photo of Jack which I just really, really love ♡
Excuse my expression here, Jack was probably saying something to which I think I’m probably shouting “what?” to here. I paired my top half with my trusty £9 Primark jeans and brown Chelsea boots. Let’s not forget about the amazing little British Heart Foundation handbag which first featured on the blog back in October last year!
After our little trek, we of course stopped for coffee, on site at the little cafe they have at Runnymede and would you believe it, they had soya milk! Once our little feet were well rested and our bodies pumped full of caffeine, we headed back to the car and headed for lunch.. which I’ll just say, was no way near as successful as the rest of the day; don’t ask.
Have you visited Runnymede before? What did you think? Let me know!
