The Bristol Scene.

Yesterday, me and a friend travelled on the train from Cheltenham to Bristol to visit our uni friend. It was so much fun to just explore a new city. We visited the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, went around the St Nicholas Markets, went to some of the big high-street shops, stopped at numerous coffee shops and had tea and cake, sat in a park in the city centre and walked and then walked some more. I was well and truly exhausted by the end of the day.

In the pictures above, you can see some amazing clothes. These photos were taking in the St. Nicholas Markets. Amongst all the different stalls were places to get different types of cuisine, as well as souvenirs and also vintage clothes. I took photos of the clothes that stood out to me the most. If only I'd had the money to buy some.

What's your favourite way to explore a new city?

The Maxi Skirt.

[Skirt - Next, Top - George, Necklace - New Look, Jacket - New Look, Ballet pumps - New Look, Sunglasses - Dorothy Perkins, Nail Varnish - Top Shop]

Yes, I am being somewhat more bold with my outfit posts at the moment. This is the outfit I wore on Sunday. It was a lovely day and I really fancied getting my maxi skirt out. I bought it last year in the Next sales for £16, it had been reduced down from £35 (or it may have been £30). I originally planned on buying it in emerald green but only the pink was left in the sale. I really love the side split in this skirt as I think it makes more young. Maxi skirts can look a little frumpy on me, so styling is key. Having recently bought this leather jacket (see post) and necklace, I wanted to team them with it and make it more edgy as opposed to girly.

Anyway, I am now back at uni which is great. It's also bizarre because courses are ending for the summer so loads of people have moved out of halls (it feels like only yesterday that we all moved in). My course has officially finished but I still have one assignment left so am hanging around until the end of may. It was great coming back on Tuesday and seeing friends again, so other than finishing my last assignment, all that's left is enjoying the last month of my year as a fresher! Only a month, wow.
