My Style: Summer Walk By The River

This weekend I embraced the sunny weather, because let’s be honest we don’t know how long it is going to last for. On Saturday, I generally sat around the garden, lounged around reading magazines, occasionally helped with the gardening, and munched on BBQ food, which kind of spur me to get up early on Sunday for a walk down the River Cam.

Living in South Cambridgeshire I get the best of both world’s I am not too far from London, no matter what some people think, and I get to explore the gorgeous countryside, quaint towns and adorable villages. One of my favourite villages, and on my wishlist of dream locations to live has to be Grantchester, which is just outside Cambridge.

This is a village that isn’t that big but has three great pubs and an amazing outdoor tea room, which is where we started our Sunday stroll, well I needed to fill up before the walk and I do love lounging about in a deck chair!!!

From there we headed down the river until we came to the edge of Cambridge and headed into town, it took about an hour, we weren’t rushing and it was hot, but it was such a lovely walk. It was fun watching the tourists try their hand at punting, the new canoeists going round in circles, the cute dogs swimming in the river, and the adorable swans.

I always find it hard to decide what to wear on hot days, it is that worry of getting my legs out, wearing something that will reveal my less than stellar body, so I decided to go for a fun floral skirt, tee and bright trainers – easy, casual and comfortable. Although, as it was so hot I am not sure why I opted to wear a black top, such a mistake, I love the loose fit of my boyfriend tee from Primark I just wish I had worn my white one instead.

I also wore my Lulu Guinness watch, which I am obsessed with, and as it has a larger face that my other watches I now have a large tan mark on my left arm!!!

What did you do this weekend to enjoy the sun?

    I live in north Cambridgeshire and echo that sentiment; near enough to the countryside and all its uniqueness and yet just an hour’s ride into London too. I adore that Lulu Guinness watch, I seem to be accumulating her lips clutches and feel like I need that the watch to be their perfect companion!
