Jacket ASOS / Dress TopShop / Scarf Primark / Bag Mulberry / Jewellery T:S / Sunnies RayBan / Boots Office
I know I look a bit crazy wearing a leather jacket and a scarf when the skies and blue and the sun is shining but I really did feel cold that day! This is one of my favourite outfits lately. The dress is from TopShop and I only bought it three weeks ago but I can’t seem to find it on the website now. If you’re quite tall, this would be really really short on you but it’s technically a tunic, not a dress – so it was in the “Tops” section of the website. I have found this similar alternative
though, it is the same style and same shape but the pattern is paisley instead of florals. It’s is sheer, and there’s a big slit at the back so you’d need to wear a leotard underneath.
We visited Alnwick Castle in Northumberland
and more excitingly, it’s best known for being the filming location of Hogwarts
, The School of Witchcraft and Wizzardry – the exterior of it anyway! It’s also the location of when they had broomstick lessons and Quidditch matches. I didn’t know this until the day we got there and my dad told me. You can have your own broomstick lessons and get involved with the various Potter-themed activities
that goes on daily, it’s great fun for both kids and Harry Potter fans. The inside of the castle is stunning, so grand and regal. No photography was allowed so I have no images of this to show you 🙁 There’s a really beautiful garden to visit too. Tickets for the castle and the garden can be purchased separately, if you only have time to go to one or the other. We purchased a combined ticket, which is also a year-round pass (a good deal!). We had a great day, wandering around and taking it all in, and of course there was a few minutes spent in the gift shop where I found the coolest glasses case with cat eyes on hem! I almost bought them but I don’t tend to use the cases, the glasses are always on my face!
