Working on a piece for Wish (yes, working on your own magazine has it’s perks!), my partner in crime Lucy and I spent an afternoon at Kensington Palace – that’s where Kate and Wills, live don’t you know?! We dined in The Orangery, a beautiful setting where I had been before to watch , but as a junk-food lover, expensive meals that barely touch the sides aren’t my thing – so we finished off with a big ol’ slice of Victoria sponge. The perfect choice considering we were off to explore Queen Victoria’s former abode!
You always forget about things to see that are right under your nose, which can be easily done when living in busy London, so this was a the perfect excuse to mosey round a building so rich in British history – especially with the jubilee fast approaching. It was extremely tourist friendly..which I thought a shame as I like to see these old buildings in an original state, but I definitely learnt a thing or two about monarchs past..!
Continuing the British theme, I dressed as an Orla Kiely girl in one of her dresses and coats, and yup, I’m back in those poor worn out Gap sandals again. Summer after summer, they’re my comfiest heels, offering an extra few inches when they are needed the most. I’ve tried to find another pair, but I’ve never found any that match up in the comfort stakes. Expect to see them for another summer’s worth of outfit posts! x
