Lifestyle: A Sunday Wander in Cambridge

A few weeks ago saw me and W attend another wedding (the second of the year – we’re taking advantage by stealing all the good ideas!), this time in Cambridge. One of my favourite cities, I couldn’t resist the chance to spend the day after having a good wander.

Beautifully sunny, almost warm – pretty much perfect. We had no plan, other than to just appreciate the winding streets, impressive colleges and beautifully kept gardens.

Whilst I’ve never really been tempted with their bags (I find the leather feels a little flimsy compared to what I’m used to) I do appreciate some of their more unusual colours. They have a beige-y mushroom-y mink that I’m particularly lusting after…

Very nice it was too!

Having been to both Oxford and Cambridge relatively recently, I can definitely say Cambridge is my favourite of the two. I’ve really been enjoying exploring more of the UK over the last few years; I have my fingers crossed for a Scottish road trip this summer too!
