Visiting Cambridge & What I Wore

Hey guys! Hope you're all well and doing your best to enjoy the lovely weather the UK has been having recently! Today I headed over to Cambridge in the sunshine with my boyfriend just to mooch around (and of course get carried away in MAC) (and of course pay a visit to Byron) and I thought I'd share with you some of the photos I took. Apologies for the rubbish iPhone quality - typically I forgot my camera.

I've lived between Cambridge and Hertfordshire for the majority of the last three years for University. It's my absolute favourite place in the world. It's busy but not as chaotic as London, and it's aesthetically beautiful and I'm always finding new things to see and do. 

Before I address anything else I just thought I'd mention the burger my boyfriend ordered at Byron. They advertise themselves as a budget-friendly "proper hamburger" american style restaurant - and they aren't wrong. This one is the 'Ronaldo' that they've been serving over the world cup. It was absolutely huge! Two hamburgers, bacon, cheese, onions and crispy onions, as well as mustard and pickles! He said it was amazing, so if you're thinking of trying it you'd better be quick as the offer ends on 14th July! 

To try and burn some of those outrageous calories off, we ventured into the town via some of the backstreets past St Catharine's College - which I'm sure you'll agree, is absolutely amazing. Cambridge colleges are all very Hogwarts-esque. It was here that we came across the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences hiding on Downing Street - basically the road just off of John Lewis and Vodka Revolution. The grounds within are secluded behind high walls, but once you're in, it's stunning. The museum itself is free entry and definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. 

Onto my outfit. I didn't actually wear these shoes; I quickly changed into these for an evening event. I actually wore these from Asos which are probably just about the comfiest pair of shoes I own. I originally bought the sunflower tee on a bit of a whim but I'm so glad I did. It's thin enough that it keeps you cool in the hot weather, the sunflower isn't too much that it clashes with patterns, and i's the perfect length for both skirts and jeans. A definite thumbs up from me! And it's currently in the sale so grab it while you can!

I'm currently sat in my garden listening to Sonisphere Festival! I live incredibly close and I really love it when the festival comes around! It's not all really my type of music but it's lovely! 
I'm also feeling a lot more myself recently so I'm happy to say: expect regular blogging from now on!
