There isn’t an awful lot to do in Somerset, but I had managed to write a list as long as my arm of places I wanted to show Lucy whilst she was here for the week. Of course, an obligatory visit to my nearest city, Wells, was in order. It’s the second smallest city in England, did you know?!
Whilst I don’t see it as somewhere you would travel very far to visit, it’s nice to see if you are in the area, so I thought i’d show Lucy around my favourite spots.
Vintage? Yes Please
A spot of vintage shopping was first on the agenda when we visited one of my favourite places – the Wells Trading Post. It really is a treasure trove, and I came close to buying a picnic basket and antique white smock dress (perfect combo, no?!) before Lucy quickly brought me back down to earth, reminding me of my shopping ban. Boo! The little bear above was one of my favourite finds too – I always seem to find one sitting in a corner somewhere looking sad..and it usually ends up in my bedroom at some point or another…
A trip anywhere wouldn’t be complete without a bit of posing at a picturesque location – or maybe that’s just us bloggers! We parked ourselves up outside the Bishops Palace moat to eat ice cream and take some pictures. The glorious weather has not helped my photography as of late – it becomes increasingly difficult to find shade to take pictures in, but Lucy managed to snap a few of my new Lowie playsuit and in return I took a few of her with her brand new super-soft Mulberry Leah, fresh from the factory shop in my town.
Sadly Lucy has now gone home, taking her hat with her (I took every opportunity to pose in it!) but i’m determined to find my own, even lovlier hat…once this shopping ban has lifted..! x
Come back tomorrow for my Glastonbury pictures!
