Last weekend we spent a blissful few days in The Cotswolds, it was a little bit of work, but also a little bit of recharging. We went on a Sunday to eek out the weekend that little bit longer and it turned out to be just what we needed…

Bag: £36, Wood/Grey. Wellington boots: £90, Hunter. Peonies: Bloom & Wild (sign up to my newsletter to receive an exclusive discount code this week).

Despite a few sunny hours on the first day, it wasn’t the best weather, but our little cottage (organised through Beachspoke) was the perfect place to read a book, run a bath and catch up on some emails without the usual London noise (ours being more drilling and smashing at the moment).

I must admit, we don’t do UK breaks enough – always in search of sun and sea. But we loved the beautiful cobbled streets, wysteria-strewn houses and country pubs – nowhere does it better.

Cardigan: American Vintage (old). Pyjamas: Yolke. Bag: £30, Next.

Cashmere jumper: £140, Boden. Jeans: £70, Boden. Shoes: £180, Boden.  Jacket: £90, Boden. Bag: £70, Boden.

We came home with a heavy heart and a longing to go back. It definitely won’t be our last trip.

Who knew I was such a country girl at heart?

  1. Wow! Your trip looks so relaxing and it’s so nice to have a quick getaway and still have that holiday feeling! I love your skirt and tee shirt combo!

    I’ve never been to the Cotswold but I’m supposed to attend a wedding there later this year!

  2. Absolutely love this t-shirt, looks so cute on you….and it’s back in stock….yay! Would you please give me an idea of size, is it typical French style sizing (i.e. tiny?) Thanks do much for your help ✨

  3. Just ordered the Boden jacket in blue – it’s currently 15% off for anyone on the fence about it! (Love it in the green as well, but just cannot justify another army green jacket without actually enlisting in the army)

  4. I’m now longing for a late summer UK break somewhere remote and green. Would you recommend this village/cottage? I stayed in Painswick last time I went to the Cotswolds, but am keen to try somewhere new.

    P.S. You look chic-de-la-chic in both those outfits!
