Sunday Sun

Now that we have finished University, my boyfriend Ben has moved back to his hometown of Plymouth. I decided to visit him for the weekend so we spent yesterday shopping and walking around town. Believe it or not, I didn't buy anything! But I did see a lovely summer jacket in a charity shop which i'm seriously contemplating going back for on my way home.

Then we spent today enjoying the amazing weather and explored a beautiful place called Mount Edgcumbe, which is a historic house and gardens right next to the sea. We spent the whole afternoon there, starting off with a picnic and then walking around for a bit and discovering each area. Ben took some photos on his film camera so I'm thinking of dedicating a post to them when they have been developed.

It was incredibly hot so I decided to wear a maxi skirt because I find them to be quite cool and practical in that kind of weather. I'm so glad I did go for a longer skirt because it was so windy there and a short skirt or dress would have been...difficult to keep under control. I took my trusty Cambridge Satchel with me, which i've used everyday since I got it two weeks ago. I'm in love with it and thinking about writing a short review because I read so many and did lots of research before I got it, but struggled to find many about the 15" bag.
