I’m always amazed at bloggers who manage to generate 2-3 completely different outfit posts on a single weekend trip; how much stuff are you guys taking? It impresses me as I’m way too lazy to carry my own stuff and never pack anything heavy or bulky. I’m sure that will change when I get my own entourage..!

This dress is a rare new item and it was a Christmas present; I love velvet and I love red and I really love short dresses so it’s a winner all round. I got the coat from a charity shop and including dry cleaning it was a grand total of £14! Everyone describes it as red but it’s more of a very dark orange.

These photos are from Tewkesbury – the main attraction is the stunning Tewkesbury Abbey, but we spent a fun afternoon exploring antiques shops and tea rooms. That was kind of the timetable for the whole holiday if I’m honest – I’ve never really been on that kind of slower-paced, meandering holiday and so it was quite novel for me and a really different experience. I especially loved strolling along the river; I tend to think of London as quite green and full of nature (typical Londoner…) but there’s none of that woodland brand of stillness that I found in the Cotswolds.Tewkesbury abbey cotswolds gloucester england tudor victorian abbey architecture forest woodland exteriorTewkesbury abbey cotswolds gloucester england tudor victorian abbey architecture forest woodland exteriorTewkesbury abbey cotswolds gloucester england tudor victorian abbey architecture forest woodland exteriorTewkesbury abbey cotswolds gloucester england tudor victorian abbey architecture forest woodland exterior

    I like your coat, it’s really lovely. I can’t believe you found it at a charity shop! Tewkesbury is such a peaceful place, I feel as though I should go there more often as I don’t live far. Your photos are really good, it looks as though you had a nice time.

    That’s really amazing, Laila! I loved the photos! Now, another confession – I told you I live close to these places, but never went there – and I love Abbeys! Like you, I am not so slow-paced on holidays, but since I moved to Bewdley I started to change a bit (mmm… not completely 🙂 Check it out, pls, the town is very similar to some you have been showing! And there’s Bridgnorth and other – perhaps you can visit the region again? Well, I agree with you about one coat per trip. I pack one backpack or big shoulder bag and that’s it. I don’t want to carry heavy things! You look lovely, beautiful and so chic! I love the color of the coat, I can see it is kind of dark orange and even with laundry, £14??? That’s amazingly good! Hope you have a great weekend!
