SKIRT FROM CHICWISH | TOP FROM OASIS | SHOES FROM PRIMARK | BAG FROM TED BAKER
Last week I finally had my summer 'holiday' and spent a week in Cornwall with my family. Now that it's been four years since I moved away from Cornwall, I finally feel able to really enjoy it as a holiday destination again. Escaping from work and the city for a while was so refreshing, and I spent every moment I could out and about, enjoying the countryside and what remained of summer. Along with my mum and siblings I visited plenty of new places, including the absolutely beautiful Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Late summer felt like the perfect time to visit. We walked through a long tunnel of apple trees heavy with ripe fruit, filling the air with the most gorgeous scent, and the farm shop was full of seasonal produce. We explored every inch of the gardens, stopping along the way for a Cornish cream tea (jam then clotted cream - the only acceptible way!). I dressed for the occassion in my sheet music skirt from Chicwish, one of my favourite pieces of the year. I bought it for work, however I've ended up wearing it everywhere! Since I live in monochrome at work, I promised myself I wouldn't wear any black during my week off, so I accessorised with delicate pink and white accessories.
The gardens were such an idyllic, peaceful way to spend an afternoon, and one of the highlights of my week!
