A day trip to......Cambridge


Despite only living only an hour or so away from Cambridge it had been a very long time since I had last paid it a visit. (Why is it when we have such lovely places almost on our doorstep we don't appreciate them?!) Anyway Reiss came up for the weekend and we decided to spend one of the days there enjoying the sights.

Cambridge is such a gorgeous city and once you get used to being amongst a throng of tourists it is a joy to walk around and explore. We started by walking along by Kings College and gradually down the road to the Fitzwilliam Muesum (one of the best museums EVER and it's free......oh and the cafe serves gorgeous food, I had an open sandwich with spinach, huge Portobello mushrooms and goats cheese).
Despite showers of rain coming and going throughout the day it didn't matter too much, although I did wish that I should have maybe taken a rain coat!

I wore one of my current favourite outfits-
 Denim shirt: H+M.......Polka-dot skirt: Pull&Bear......Brogues: Primarks......Bag: Urban Outfitters

In true Cambridge tradition we enjoyed a punt along the river Cam which runs along behind the majority of the colleges. It was so lovely just gliding along the river taking in the scenery.

It was a lovely day out and such a beautiful place I could visit it again and again! Have any of you been to Cambridge? 

*I've also decided that I'm going to endeavour to start replying to every comment you lovely people make on my posts, I read every single one and am really grateful for you to take the time to leave me one, so do check back if you do leave one*
